New Zealand and Australia are all set for their final preparations for the T20 World Cup 2024 as the Trans-Tasman rivals will lock horns in a three-match series, starting from February 21.
Australia are coming into the series on the back of a 2-1 win over West Indies, and have named a star-studded squad for the three matches against their neighbours. This series will be the final one for David Warner ahead of the T20 World Cup, which will be his final hurrah.
The Aussies have also welcomed back Pat Cummins, Josh Hazlewood and Mitchell Starc into the fold with the upcoming T20 World Cup in mind.
New Zealand, on the other hand, have also named a strong squad for the series, with Trent Boult coming back into the fold. Kane Williamson and Daryl Mitchell were the big absentees from their lineup with Williamson on paternity leave and Mitchell currently nursing an injury.
Both teams will be looking for momentum and bragging rights in one of the storied rivalries in cricket history.
