New Zealand take on Australia in the final of the T20 World Cup 2021 at the Dubai International Stadium in Dubai.
Toss Update: Australia won the toss and opted to bowl first
Aaron Finch: We'll have a bowl. Looks a little bit dry but I don't think it will change. It might skid with the new ball. We're playing the same team. The way we hung in the contest and take it deep was crucial for us. Zampa has been superb for a while in the shortest format, and hopefully, that will continue. It is a new format, a new team and our record over NZ doesn't matter at all.
Kane Williamson: We would have fielded as well. It looks like a reasonable wicket and who knows about the dew. We have one obvious change: Conway is out and Seifert is in. It is a shame that he misses but as a team we have to move on and focus on the challenge at hand. Mitch Santner is a world class operator and it didn't quite work out in the match the other night. We don't want to look too far ahead and we just need to make a few small adjustments.
