Australia and New Zealand booked their place in the final with contrasting runs setting the stage for a thrilling finale. While Australia looked formidable in all the matches and were barely troubled, New Zealand could only scrape through pipping England to the post by net run rate. New Zealand managed only one win across four matches in the tournament losing twice to Australia and once to England. Though they managed to eke out a close high-scoring loss to the Aussies, this campaign has been a roller-coaster ride for the Kiwis. The Australians decided to unleash their Big Bash talent with a team stacked full of them and it paid rich dividends. The entire Aussie side came on the back of playing T20s and it proved to be the difference.
Best economical pick – Australians are known for their pace-attack from the era of Dennis Lillee. They found the legends like Brett Lee, Glenn McGrath during the late 90s and didn’t stop thereafter. The likes of Andrew Tye, Marcus Stoinis, and Billy Stanlake are doing well for Australia these days. They are geared up to win the mega-finale against the Kiwis.
Top captains & vice captains – Martin Guptill is not ready to stop as he is in his best form these days. He had a magnificent series so far. Though New Zealand just won 1 game out of 4, Guptill’s power-packed batting is a big boost for the side. If he fires in the Final, NZ can create history. The inform openerD’arcy Short had played consistently well in this series and he just carry forwarded his explosive BBL form into international arena. D’Arcy Short has been consistent at the top of the order for Australia playing the anchor role very effectively. Back him in your fantasy team.
Smart pick – After a slow start to the series, Colin Munro (147 runs, SR 210) picked up in the last two matches with scores of 76 and 57. His ability to throw the bowling plans into disarray at the top makes him a dangerous player.
Cautious Pick – New Zealand all-rounder Mitchell Santner had a poor outing in the last match against England where 32 runs of his 2 overs without taking a single wicket. As the final will be play at the small ground of Auckland he can go for a lot of runs which may cost you negative points, so be careful before trading him in your team.
