Australia still has a chance of winning the T20 series against New Zealand after claiming victory in the third game. Can Australia mount a famous comeback, or will the Black Caps seal a series win on Friday?
New Zealand v Australia 4th T20 Betting Tips & Predictions: Match Winner
Just as I write Australia off and say they have no chance of winning the series, they do what Australia does best and prove us all wrong. The Aussies now trail 2-1 in the five-match T20 series after winning the third game by 64 runs on Wednesday. The tourists were close to winning the second game, but they managed to regroup and claim their first win. They batted first and posted an impressive 208-4 with Glenn Maxwell (70), Aaron Finch (69) and Josh Philippe (43) all performing well. The batsmen set the platform for the bowlers to do their work, and they did that as they skittled the Black Caps for 144 with Ashton Agar causing havoc as he claimed figures of 6-30, while Riley Meredith took two wickets with Adam Zampa and Kane Richardson taking one each. This fourth T20 is very difficult to call, it looked like New Zealand were cruising to a series victory until Australia threw a spanner in the works – like they usually do. I believe that defeat will have infuriated the hosts, so I am backing them to hit back in style and win the fourth T20 and win the series.
