The ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2021 began with 16 teams and has now reached the final two after 44 matches. The ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2021 is set to come to a thrilling conclusion, with trans-Tasman rivals Australia and New Zealand competing for the World Cup trophy.
This is New Zealand’s first appearance in the men’s T20 World Cup final. In 2010, Australia finished second. In any case, a first-time winner will be crowned on November 14th.

New Zealand’s Road To T20 World Cup Final
New Zealand has been disciplined and consistent throughout the tournament, having not lost a game since their first-round defeat to Pakistan. Their bowling attack has been one of the best in the tournament, adapting well to the conditions in the UAE, and captain Kane Williamson has rotated them expertly. While there hasn’t been a standout batter, several of them have stepped up at critical moments, and they’ve been especially effective at the end. Jimmy Neesham and Daryl Mitchell swung hard in the final overs of the semi-final against England to knock out the No.1 side.
ICC T20I ranking: No.4
Squad: Martin Guptill, Kane Williamson (c), Daryl Mitchell, Todd Astle, Mark Chapman, Devon Conway (wk), Adam Milne, Kyle Jamieson, Jimmy Neesham, Glenn Phillips, Mitchell Santner, Tim Seifert (wk), Ish Sodhi, Trent Boult, Tim Southee

Australia’s Road To T20 World Cup Final
Australia began their campaign with a close win over South Africa but was thrashed by England two games later. However, big wins throughout the rest of the Super 12 stage increased their net run rate, and they advanced to the semis. They were firmly on the back foot against Pakistan, despite a brisk knock from David Warner when Matthew Wade took on Shaheen Afridi with three sixes in the 19th over to finish a thrilling game.
ICC T20I ranking: No.6
Squad: Aaron Finch (c), David Warner, Mitchell Marsh, Steve Smith, Glenn Maxwell, Marcus Stoinis, Ashton Agar, Pat Cummins, Josh Hazlewood, Josh Inglis, Kane Richardson, Mitchell Starc, Mitchell Swepson, Matthew Wade, Adam Zampa

Is there any reserve day for T20 World Cup Final?
The final will be held on a reserve day if in any case, it couldn’t complete on 14th November.
Every effort will be made to complete the match on the scheduled day, with any necessary overs reductions. The match will be completed on the reserve day only if the minimum number of overs required to constitute a match (10 overs to the side batting second) cannot be bowled on the scheduled day.
If a match begins on the scheduled day and overs are reduced as a result of an interruption, but no further play is possible, the match will resume on the reserve day at the point where the last ball was played.
What if the match ends in a tie?
If the final is tied, a Super Over is played. If the Super Over is a tie, then subsequent Super Overs shall be played until there is a winner. Unless exceptional circumstances arise, there shall be an unlimited number of Super Overs played to achieve a result.
If, after a tie, weather conditions prevent the Super Over from being completed, or if the match is abandoned or results in a no result, the teams are declared joint winners.
