Australia and New Zealand are slated to meet in the T20 World Cup final in 2021. With these 2 teams in the competition, the globe will witness the crowning of a new World Champion in the shortest format. Former India captain and BCCI President, Sourav Ganguly has picked the winner of this high-profile encounter.

These teams didn’t even enter the super event as favorites to win. But, Australia and New Zealand showed tremendous spirit to defeat in-form nations Pakistan and England, accordingly, to secure a place in the summit game. As per Ganguly, this is the moment for the Kiwis to shine brightly in international cricket.

Kane Williamson’s squad advanced to the finals of the 2019 ODI World Cup and also won the WTC. Ganguly showered appreciation on the squad, claiming that it had more guts and character than.

I have the feeling that it is indeed New Zealand’s time: sourav Ganguly

I feel it is New Zealand’s time in world sport. Australia is a great nation, but they have had a tough time for a while, though they have been a great cricketing country. New Zealand has a lot more guts and character than we see on TV. They won the World Test Championship a few months ago. It’s a small country but it’s got a lot of steel. I have the feeling that it is indeed New Zealand’s time,” Ganguly said.

He also predicted that the Indian squad would come back stronger in the future. Ganguly believes they were under a lot of strain and that two terrible games kept them from making it to the semi-finals.

Expectations were undoubtedly very high, but I was happy to see that a majority of the people had the heart to accept the result. They were upset, but they did not overreact. At the end of the day – Bumrah, Shami, Rohit, and Kohli are all human beings. It was just a matter of two bad games. That’s 40 overs of bad cricket. They will bounce back, and within a year or so, we will see the same boys lifting trophies,” sourav Ganguly added.
