New Zealand and Australia will clash in the finals of the 2021 T20 World Cup. It will be a repeat of the 2015 50-over World Cup final, which the Aussies won. In the semis, Devon Conway smashed at his bat in despair after getting out. It has been confirmed that will not take part in the final game due to injury. In this article, we take a look at the clip in which injured Devon Conway is seen helping the Kiwis prepare for the final of T20 WC.
New Zealand and Australia to clash in the finals
New Zealand and Australia are the two teams that very few expected to reach the finals of the event. Around the Kiwis, though, there were a few expectations considering they have been doing well recently. For Australia, it has been a team effort that has brought them all the way.
In the semi-finals, both teams seemed to be out of the competition with few overs to go. However, the batting unit stepped up in the final overs and eventually helped them cross the line. Being arch-rivals, the final is likely to be a heated affair.
Injured Devon Conway will not be part of the final
Devon Conway did well to help New Zealand stabilize after a few early wickets in the semis. However, after he got out, he was not happy with himself and hence, punched at his bat. That injured him and has put him out of contention for the final of the event. Yet, he was helping his teammates prepare for the summit clash.

New Zealand is a closely-knit team, and Conway’s latest gesture shows how badly each of them wants to go and lift the trophy. If it does happen, they will complete a double after having won the WTC very recently.
