Watch Aus vs NZ Live Streaming
Team India has seen a glorious period under MS Dhoni. The Indian cricket fans are used to see the team in the finals of almost all the ICC events. It was a huge heartbreak for all the cricket fans in India to see the team eliminated after playing the semi finals. Ultimately its a game and a team can't win all the matches or all the tournaments. Now its time to shift the impetus towards the final - Australia vs New Zealand. The venue for this match is Melbourne Cricket Ground. Live telecast and streaming of this final match will be available on Star Sports HD network in India with Hindi and English commentary. One can enjoy live streaming on mobile by downloading HotStar App. Live action in Australia and New Zealand can be enjoyed on Fox Sports and SkySport.
New Zealand skipper Brendon McCullum has taken this team to another level. He laid strong platforms at the top and batsmen like Williamson, Guptil, Ronchi and Elliot capitalised on it. The bowling unit has always been strong with the likes of Trent Boult, Southee, Anderson and Vettori.
Brendon believes they have a good chance against Australia and the way team has played has been brilliant so far. As New Zealand haven't played any match this world cup in Australia they might have a tough time adjusting themselves at the huge MCG stadium.
The another factor that works against New Zealand is they haven't featured in an ODI since last six years. So hopefully they get accustomed to the conditions within the short span of time before the final today.
This being the first ever final of a world cup for New Zealand, not only the team but the whole nations serves a lot of dreams. There is a lot of expectations from the cricket fans to see their team win the world cup for the first time.
On the other hand we have a team that can be easily termed as the most successful team in world cup. They have four titles to their name - 1983, 1999, 2003 and 2007. They are very close to stamp another world cup win at MCG.
The pitch here and the playing conditions don't support too much of swing. Whereas bowlers like Boult or Southee would love to see some swing in the air. Other than that, this being a big ground we may see less number of sixes or boundaries. Even a 300 on board can be above par in a final match where both the teams would be under pressure.
Michael Clarke will play his last ever ODI match. He would like to sign off in grand style. Even his team mates would love to give him a memorable exit from his illustrious career.
A lot at stake both the co-hosts will put in their best to earn the title. As far as the overall results are concerned, New Zealand deserves to be the title winner this time but Australia knows the conditions well here and they have a slight edge in terms of the number of match winners they have.
