Australia will begin their campaign in the T20 World Cup 2022 against trans-Tasman rivals New Zealand in a repeat of the last year’s final. The defending champions haven’t had a great build-up to the tournament this year as they lost a couple of series against England and India and won one against West Indies, lost Josh Inglis to a freak hand injury and there are some tired bodies in that dressing room with back-to-back series one after the other.
New Zealand, on the other hand, won most of their T20 bilaterals in the build up, however, their record playing in Australia isn’t that great. Whether it’s T20I, ODIs or Tests, New Zealand haven’t been able to crack the code of playing in Australia and suffering a 9-wicket hammering against South Africa in the warm-up game was another indication of the same. A contest against Australia first up in the tournament will be challenge for the Kiwis.
