Australia vs New Zealand (AUS vs NZ) Today Match Prediction Preview

Welcome to the AUS vs ZIM Today Match Prediction curated by Kheltalk cricket experts. Australia will take on New Zealand in the 1st ODI of the New Zealand tour of Australia at Cairns on Tuesday, 6th September 2022. Keep on reading for more information on the AUS vs NZ game.

New Zealand and Australia will battle it out at Cairns on Tuesday as the Chappell-Hadlee trophy returns after a couple of years. The series, which began in 2020, was forced to call off because of the peak COVID19. The pandemic didn’t allow the neighbors to cross borders for a series and they finally will meet on Tuesday.

And it is uncertain when this series will be played again. Under the 2023-27 FTP, the two teams will not play each other in Bileratal ODIs.

Talking about the current form, Australia faced Zimbabwe recently. Despite winning the series, the team faced an embarrassing loss in the last ODI and they will look to rebound here. New Zealand, on the other hand, enjoyed success against West Indies. They lost the first ODI but did well in the next two to take the series 2-1.
