The first T20I between Australia and New Zealand is all set to take place at the Hagley Oval on Monday.

The New Zealand international season resumes with Kane Williamson and co. kicking off their road to the ICC T20 World Cup 2021. The Kiwis have named a strong side with the likes of Trent Boult, and Kyle Jamieson set to feature. However, the batting unit will be in the spotlight, with Glenn Phillips and Tim Seifert looking to build on their recent exploits for the Blackcaps.

Their opponents, Australia, have named a rather inexperienced side for this series. However, Aaron Finch has a very talented side to bank on, with Jhye Richardson and Josh Philippe expected to play a huge part in this series. With several pacers also looking to seal their place in the side, there's a lot at stake apart from the highly-anticipated series itself.

The Kiwis might hold the advantage heading into this series given the home conditions and superior depth in their roster. But one cannot take the Aussies for granted regardless of the format or the occasions. With either side looking to land the first blow in this series, a riveting match beckons at the Hagley Oval.

Pitch Report

A good batting track beckons at the Hagley Oval, with the dimensions of the ground also playing into the batsmen's hands. However, the pacers will get the ball to move around a bit initially, making for an even contest. The spinners will need to be smarter with their lines and lengths to get the most out of this surface. Both teams will look to chase on upon winning the toss, with 170 being a competitive total at the Hagley Oval.
