Australia won the litter and decided to play their first Twenty20 international against New Zealand in Christchurch on Monday, Australia captain Aaron Finch said he is excited about the prospect of chasing on a consistent looking Hagley Oval course

“It looks like a really good wicket and I don’t think much is going to change in the 40 overs,” he said. “The percentage of winners who chase them is around 70 percent We support our batters to hunt (the New Zealand sum) “

While the Trans Tasman bragging rights are up for grabs, both teams will also step into the five-game series with a look to the T20 World Cup in India later this year

“We know we are up against a strong team in Australia and we look forward to the challenge,” said captain Kane Williamson Australia has dominated its last nine T20 matches with New Zealand, winning seven and losing one, with one game ended in a draw
