Australia v New ZealandA brief statistical analysis of Australia v New Zealand T20 contest.
|Aussie batters produced 70% scoring shot(ie 30% dot balls) of overs they faced against NZ, and it is the maximum they have scored of any team. Along with this batting prowess - In these 96 overs which they faced in 5 games, 76% of those were 6+ runs/overs.
Interestingly both teams have higher percentile of run-out dismissals.
A dismissal which rarely is seen in T20 cricket.
