The final of the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup will be played between New Zealand and Australia on 14 November. BCCI President Sourav Ganguly has expressed his opinion regarding this title match to be played at Dubai International Cricket Stadium in Dubai. Ganguly believes that the chances of New Zealand team winning the final are high. He supported the Kiwi team by giving two reasons for this. New Zealand’s performance in recent years has been excellent. He has won the World Test Championship this year after reaching the final of the ODI World Cup 2019.
Sourav Ganguly said during a conversation at the Sharjah International Book Fair, ‘I think it is time for New Zealand in world sport. Australia is a great country but they have faced difficulties. Even though Australia has been excellent in terms of cricket, New Zealand has more guts and abilities than what is seen on TV. He won the World Test Championship title a few months back. It is a small country but they have a lot of talent. I feel it is New Zealand time now.
Regarding India’s T20 World Cup journey, he said that even though Team India failed to reach the semi-finals, he is happy that despite the disappointment, people accepted the result. He said that Team India will come back and within a year we will see them lift the trophy. T20 World Cup is to be held in Australia in the year 2022.
