For both the sides, it's time to be equipped and to lay into with the ammunition they have in their quiver. When talking about Australians, they look a balanced squad with everything in their roster be it pacers, spinners, batsmen and all-rounders.
Australia has a strong batting line up. Steven Smith, David Warner, Chris Lynn, Aaron Finch, Travis Head, Glenn Maxwell and Moises Henriques will have the responsibility to do the job with bat. And yes their bowling combination can also not be underrated. Much of the bowling responsibility will be on James Pattinson, Mitchell Starc, Marcus Stoinis, and Adam Zampa's shoulders.

For the Black Caps, Kane Williamson, Neil Broom, Martin Guptill, Ross Taylor, Tom Latham and Luke Ronchi will be in key role to assault Australian bowling. If Australia has Mitchell Starc, James Pattinson and Josh Hazelwood, New Zealand has the power of Tim Southee, Trent Boult, Mitchell McClenaghan and Adam Milne. Kiwis' pace battery has no match with Australians', but in terms of experience. However, on speed count, Australia looks slightly over the line with each of their pacer has the potential to bowl 140-145 kmph. Mitchell Santaner will be seen as Kiwis' main spinner. When supported by Jeetan Patel, Santaner can turn out to be unplayable.
