New Zealand vs Australia Live Score Updates, 1st T20: The stage is set as Mitchell Santner-led New Zealand locks horns with the 50-over world champions Australia in the inaugural T20I of the 3-match series at the Sky Stadium in Wellington. This T20I showdown unfolds just three months before the commencement of the T20 World Cup in the USA and West Indies.

With regular skipper Kane Williamson absent, having recently guided the Black Caps to a historic first Test series victory against South Africa, the responsibility falls on young Mitchell Santner to secure a resounding win against the Kangaroos on home turf, providing a significant morale boost ahead of the T20 World Cup.

In contrast to the squad that competed against India post the 50-over ODI World Cup, Australia arrives in New Zealand with a formidable lineup featuring stalwarts such as Steve Smith, Pat Cummins, Mitchell Marsh, and Glenn Maxwell.

Having emerged victorious with a 2-1 scoreline against the West Indies in the recently concluded T20 series, the Australian team is brimming with confidence and is eager to maintain their winning streak against their trans-Tasman rivals. Additionally, the young Australian side aims to bid a fond farewell to David Warner in his final bilateral T20 series.

The presence of marquee players from both sides sets the stage for a potentially high-scoring encounter in the first T20 between New Zealand and Australia. While the Sky Stadium pitch may offer some assistance to the bowlers, it is expected to be predominantly favorable to the batsmen, hinting at a substantial total as the likely outcome.
