Australia vs New Zealand Champions Trophy Final at Centurion

Australia and New Zealand will play in the finals of the ICC Champion Trophy on Monday, with both the teams vying to make history.

Australia is aiming to become the first country to successfully defend the ICC Champions Trophy title following their win 2006 in India by defeat West Indies in final.

New Zealand will also be out to make history by becoming the first side to win the tournament twice, having won the 2000 edition in Kenya by beat India.

Australia topped their pool group and beat England by nine wickets in Friday’s semi-final in Centurion.

The Black Caps also finished top of their group, and have now notched three successive wins, over Sri Lanka, England and Younus Khan’s side.

Team news

Australia: Ricky Ponting has a habit of turning it on on the big day. But he is a bruised captain, too, the only Australian leader since time immemorial to have lost the Ashes twice. Australia tried to retain same eleven in Final.

Squad (likely): Shane Watson, Tim Paine (wk), Ricky Ponting (capt), Michael Hussey, Cameron White, Callum Ferguson, James Hopes, Mitchell Johnson, Brett Lee, Nathan Hauritz, Peter Siddle.

New Zealand: A discussion on allrounder Brendon Diamanti has its merits – Neil Broom hasn’t had much to do in the tournament – but New Zealand are not likely to tinker with a winning combination. And the way Elliott came through the semi-final, a big worry for them has been taken care of.

Squad (likely): Brendon McCullum (wk), Aaron Redmond, Martin Guptill, Ross Taylor, Neil Broom, Grant Elliot, James Franklin, Daniel Vettori (capt), Kyle Mills, Shane Bond, Ian Butler.

Pitch and conditions
Centurion, apart from the Pakistan-Australia game, has had flat batting pitches, which could made it harder for New Zealand to pull off an upset. A 30% chance of precipitation means we should get a complete game.

Stats and trivia

  • New Zealand have entered 13 tournament finals before this, and have won four of those.
  • Since their 1999 World Cup triumph, Australia have reached 19 tournament finals, and have lost only three: in 1999 to Sri Lanka in Colombo, and two CB Series finals to England and India in 2006-07 and 2007-08 respectively.

Match Preview

“In the semi-final, it doesn’t matter who you play against, or where you play, because it is a big game. Pressure is not only on us, but also on New Zealand. If we get through two more games we are the champions.”
Younis Khan

Team news

Imran Nazir is fit and should take Misbah-ul-Haq’s place. The difficult problem is one that other teams would kill for: does Mohammad Asif go out for Mohammad Aamer? Rana Naved-ul-Hasan and Umar Gul will be difficult to keep out too. If the Wanderers pitch looks especially green, they could go in with four fast bowlers too. What a throwback it would be but that’s unlikely to happen if the pitch is dry.

Pakistan: (probable): 1 Imran Nazir, 2 Kamran Akmal, 3 Younis Khan (capt), 4 Shoaib Malik, 5 Mohammad Yousuf, 6 Umar Akmal, 7 Shahid Afridi, 8 Rana Naved-ul-Hasan, 9 Mohammad Aamer, 10 Saeed Ajmal, 11 Umar Gul.

New Zealand don’t have such problems of plenty. The batting looks amazingly thin in Ryder’s absence. Aaron Redmond, who was too jetlagged to play the previous game, should come in. “Grant took part in training this morning and the injection to see how it’s going – the injection works when he bats but not when he bowls,” Daniel Vettori said. “We’ll leave it till the last possible minute before making a decision.”

New Zealand (probable): 1 Brendon McCullum (wk), 2 Aaron Redmond, 3 Martin Guptill, 4 Ross Taylor, 5 Neil Broom, 6 Grant Elliot/Scott Styris, 7 James Franklin, 8 Daniel Vettori (capt), 9 Kyle Mills, 10 Shane Bond, 11 Ian Butler.

Pitch and conditions

Vettori expects a pitch similar to the one New Zealand scored 300-plus on against Sri Lanka. “Looks like the Sri Lanka wicket, lots of runs in it. If so we’re going to have to step up with the bat.” There’s only a 40% chance of rain but if the match is washed out, New Zealand will go through by the virtue of having topped Group B.
