The First game will show how this Australia team is one to watch out for at home and will be favorites to clinch this series here. They will look to be on top from the word go. We Think New Zealand will win the match.


New Zealand had a great home season where they were unbeaten until the very last. It was the T20 series where Pakistan turned up and defeated NZ 2-1 after trailing in the first match. Currently ranked at number 2, New Zealand will love to win  and get to the number 1 position.
