NZ VS AUS
Ahead of the third T20I against Australia, New Zealand spinner Mitchell Sentner has been ejected from Wednesday’s clash after “waking up with a head-cold Wednesday morning”. “He is self-segregated as a precautionary measure while waiting for the results of a COVID test,” New Zealand Cricket said in a statement. He said that Adam Milne of Wellington would join the team for today’s match at Sky Stadium. Santner returned in the second T20 with figures of 4-31 which New Zealand won by four runs. After defeating the Australian team in the first two matches, the hosts are leading the five-match series 2–0. And they have taken a different hold in the matches.
On Monday, NZC announced that the final T20I between New Zealand and Australia would be moved from Bay Oval to Wellington. Australia is set to make some changes in the upcoming third T20I of the five-match series, assistant coach Andrew Macdonald confirmed on Tuesday. Now we have to see if there is any change in the rules.
The final three T20Is between Australia and New Zealand will be hosted at Sky Stadium in Wellington and viewers are likely to include Ashton Turner or D’Arcy Short in their opening XI.
All-rounder Ashton Egger can be excluded from the squad as he conceded 50 runs in five overs in the first two T20 matches against New Zealand. That is why they can be excluded, it has not been confirmed yet. He said, “We haven’t got those middle overs right. This could be a reason for us to strengthen that area or make some changes that potentially strengthen that area both from bat and ball. Spin has played well at the level. In the last three and a half months, two games as well as every game he plays are going to improve, ”Cricket.com quoted McDonald as saying.

IS NEW ZEALAND FRIENDLY THAN AUSTRALIA?
The report says Australia has a reputation for being friendly to New Zealand, with New Zealand “doing it even better”.
New Zealand was named one of the easiest places in the world to finish fifth, while Australia was ranked 20th.
This difference can be partly explained by the friendliness of foreign residents, favorable to 83 per cent of expats in New Zealand, compared to 71 per cent in Australia. And 21 percent of expats in New Zealand found it “much easier” to make local friends, compared to 14 percent in Australia. ( AUSTRALIA VS NEW ZEALAND LIVE SCORE MATCH )
Migrants from both countries praised the region for their standard of living, with more than one fifth of respondents in each country stating that was their main reason for moving there. But more than half of expansions (52 per cent) in Australia were unhappy with the cost of living, while 43 per cent said the same in New Zealand.
AUS VS NZ LIVE MATCH AND UPDATES
Finch’s luck changes
It was a matter of millimetres between Finch’s lean run continuing and the turnaround he was able to achieve. Facing his first ball of the match from Tim Southee, a good-length delivery seamed back in to the pads – an angle of attack that has often troubled Finch – and brought a huge lbw appeal. It was given not out on the field and New Zealand reviewed with Finch saved by umpire’s call, the ball taking a good chunk of leg stump but not quite enough.
On such things can fortunes change. In the third over, he got off the mark with a confident drive down the ground off Southee and slowly started to find his stride. The strong driving and square-of-the-wicket shots that are Finch trademarks were back on display, and then his half-century came with a switch hit against Ish Sodhi for six. When he took three fours off Trent Boult’s third over there was time for him to add to his T20 hundreds, but he was cut off by Sodhi when he skewed a catch to short third-man.
