T20 World Cup final: New Zealand will not spare Australia this time, says Peter Fulton | Cricket news

NEW DELHI: Former New Zealand cricketer Peter Fulton believes the high-octane T20 World Cup final between Trans Tasman rivals – New Zealand and Australia – will be a close match and could turn out very well. However, Fulton has chosen New Zealand as a favorite to win the title.
“It’s going to be a pretty close game. New Zealand played in a five-game series against Australia earlier this year and they won 3-2. I think it’s going to be a very close game. New Zealand will win. It will come down.” until the last couple of overs. The team that is a little lucky is likely to win the game. I see New Zealand winning the title this time. This time they won’t spare Australia, “Fulton told TimesofIndia.com in an exclusive interview from New Zealand.
Whichever team wins tonight, we will have a first champion.

Australia has won a record five ODI World Cup titles but has not yet got its hands on a World T20 trophy. New Zealand, on the other hand, has never won a limited overseas world cup title. They recently won the first edition of the World Testing Championship, beating India in the final.

This will be Australia’s ninth overall World Cup final (including ODIs and T20Is) – most of all teams. New Zealand, which has remained constant in its performances, has reached the finals of a world championship twice – the 2015 and 2019 ODI world championships, but they have lost both times. They lost to Australia in 2015 and England in 2019 due to the now abolished border countback rule.
Fulton is confident that the crew led by Kane Williamson will bring all their we -ons to bear this time around.
“We lost the final in 2015 and 2019. Then we won the test championship and now the T20 World Cup final is here. New Zealand will be the favorites for the title. You have been really at your best for the last three years. You are one the best teams in the world. They’re consistent in all three formats. There are some world-class players and talented players in the squad. We saw Daryl Mitchell bring the team home in the semi-finals against England, “said Fulton, who played 23 Tests, 49 ODIs and 12 T20Is for New Zealand between 2004 and 2014, TimesofIndia.com added.

“New Zealand and Australia have a very big rivalry. It should be a very exciting game. Australia have talented and star players on their team. I’m really looking forward to this exciting game,” added the former cricketer.

Before the all-important clash, New Zealand suffered a heavy blow when its formidable wicket keeper batsman Devon Conway, who scored a 38-ball-46 in New Zealand’s semi-final win against England, was disfellowshipped with a breach of hand. Conway sustained the injury when he struck his racket in frustration immediately after being sacked by Liam Livingstone in the semifinals.
“Devon Conway’s injury will be a big blow to New Zealand. New Zealand will miss Conway badly in the final. Tim Seifert or Mark Ch -man will replace him on the team. New Zealand will go with Glenn Phillips to keep the wickets.” Conway has been a big part of that team for the last year or two and New Zealand will miss their performances in the final, “Fulton signed.
