The Trans-Tasman rivals have locked horns three times in the history of the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup, with the Kiwis holding the ledger 2-1.


Their maiden meeting took place at the picturesque Himachal Pradesh Stadium in Dharamsala in 2016, where the Kane Williamson-led unit emerged victorious by eight runs.

The next meeting took place in the summit clash of the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2021 in Dubai. This time, the Aussies got the better of their Kiwi counterparts, as Mitchell Marsh led the Men in Green & Gold to their maiden world title win in the shortest format of the game.


Riding on Williamson’s magical 48-ball 85, the BlackCaps posted 4/172 in 20 overs. Josh Hazlewood proved to be the most effective bowler for the Aussies, as the right-arm pacer claimed 3/16 in four overs.


In response, David Warner (53 off 38) and Mitch Marsh’s unbeaten 50-ball 77* ensured that the Kangaroos romped home in the 19th over to lay their hands on the global title for the first time.

An year later, New Zealand stormed back with venom, as the BlackCaps humbled the defending champions at their own den, thanks to a whirlwind 16-ball 42 from Finn Allen and an unbeaten 58-ball 92 from Devon Conway. The Kiwis went on to post 200/3 in 20 overs before knocking over the Aussies for 111 in 17.1 overs.
