AusVsNZ: Australia skipper Aaron Finch won the toss and opted to bowl against New Zealand in the final clash of the ongoing ICC Men's T20 World Cup here at Dubai International Cricket Stadium on Sunday.

Speaking at the toss, Australia skipper Finch said, "We'll have a bowl. Looks a little bit dry, but I don't think it will change. It might skid with the new ball. We're playing the same team. The way we hung in the contest and take it deep was crucial for us. Zampa has been superb for a while in the shortest format, and hopefully that will continue. It is a new format, a new team and our record over NZ doesn't matter at all."
