Probable Top Performers
Kane Williamson (New Zealand)
A top-class player with high standards in T20 cricket doesn’t play fancy shots but still the best. Highly depend on rotating the strikes and odd boundary with the healthy strike rate. His current strike rate is above 120, he has struck 12 half-centuries in the last 62 T20s. The Kiwis would want a big inning from their captain if they want to beat Aussies.
Matthew Wade (Australia)
We all have seen what he can do with the bat against AUS vs IND T20 series. Also, he has scored some magnificent knocks in this year’s Big Bash League for the Hobart Hurricanes. Moreover, after scoring back-to-back half-centuries against India in the T20 series he must be high in confidence. Undoubtedly he is great touch and can prove to be a important player for the Australia.
