Australia will look to begin their title defence at the T20 World Cup in style when they face New Zealand at what is expected to be a capacity crowd at Sydney Cricket Ground.
Not everything has gone to plan for Australia in the lead-up to this year’s World Cup, with back-up keeper Josh Inglis ruled out of the tournament after a freak accident earlier this week.
Australia replaced Inglis with all-rounder Cameron Green in what skipper Aaron Finch admitted was a “risk” given it means they have no specialist replacement for first-choice gloveman Matthew Wade.
