New Zealand and Australia will lock horns with each other in the final of the ICC T20 World Cup at the Dubai International Stadium on Sunday.
The Kiwis and Kangaroos eye for their maiden T20 World Cup in Dubai.
The Kangaroos started their campaign slow, but have risen to the peak at the right moment. There were several key players who were unable to perform well during early matches including David Warner and Steve Smith. Warner has regained his form in the last few matches while Smith still has to perform.
On the other hand, Kiwis started their campaign with a loss against Pakistan. However, they bounced back after their first win against India.
Veteran cricketers, Shane Warne and Brian Lara have expressed their thoughts on the much anticipated final and predicted the winner.
Former West Indies skipper, Brain Lara took to his official Twitter handle and predicted the winner of the tournament: “Neither team has ever won this title before. For me, NZ looks like the team to beat, and are my choice for champions!”
