New Zealand lock horns with Australia in the next fixture of Trans-Tasman T20I Tri-Series at the Eden Park in Auckland eyeing a place in the final. Australia are the other finalist, with 3 wins in the bag in as many matches. If New Zealand lose this one, they will have to defeat England to make it to the final.
When: February 16, 11:30 AM IST
Where: Eden Park, Auckland
The recent inclusions in Mark Chapman and wicketkeeper Tim Seifert gave NZ the strength they were missing. They are likely to field the same XI.
This fixture being a dead-rubber for Aussies, they could give some of the benched players a chance. Warner could be rested for the game.

New Zealand secured a win against England in their last fixture and would be confident when they take on confident Oz side. Make a balanced side, not writing the Kiwis off.
