Australia vs New Zealand Highlights today. 13th Match, Group 1 (N), Sydney Cricket Ground, Saturday 22-10-2022, ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2022.
Toss: Australia chose to field.
Finch: There’s a bit of weather around but the wicket here gets better and better. The crowd will make a difference and look forward to the big crowd. Richardson, Steven Smith, Ashton Agar, and Cam Green are not playing.
Williamson: Would have had a bowl as well for similar reasons. There has been a bit of weather around and nice to get it started. I guess there is no changing the past and we’re coming in with a fresh mindset. Guptill, Milne, Mitchell, and Bracewell are out.
Australia team: David Warner, Aaron Finch (capt), Mitchell Marsh, Glenn Maxwell, Marcus Stoinis, Tim David, Matthew Wade (wk), Mitchell Starc, Pat Cummins, Adam Zampa, Josh Hazlewood
