The latest team news is that New Zealand's Devon Conway will miss Sunday's T20 final. The left-hander broke his finger when he punched his bat after getting stumped during New Zealand's win over England in the semis. 

"He's absolutely gutted to be ruled out like this at this time," said Black Caps coach Gary Stead. "While it's not the smartest thing he's done, there's certainly an element of bad luck in the injury. Devon is a great team man and a very popular member of the side so we're all feeling for him."

Opponents Australia continue to beat the odds and confound the critics. After finishing second in the Super 12 (Group 1), Aaron Finch's men muscled past Pakistan and into their second ICC Men's T20 World Cup Final. Can the 2010 runner's up go one better?

Cricket fans will remember when the two sides met in the 2015 50-Over World Cup, with Australia the clear winners on that occasion. Can New Zealand take revenge in their first-ever T20 World Cup final?

Watch an New Zealand vs Australia live stream abroad using a VPN

Even if you have subscribed to the relevant T20 World Cup rights holders, you won't be able to use them when outside your own country. The service will know your location based on your IP address, and will automatically block your access.

A Virtual Private Network (VPN) helps you get around this obstacle. A VPN creates a private connection between your device and the internet, such that the servers and services you’re accessing aren’t aware of what you’re doing. All the information passing back and forth is entirely encrypted.

There are many VPN providers out there, with some more reliable and safe than others. As a rule, we’d suggest a paid-for service such as ExpressVPN which offers a 100 per cent risk-free money back guarantee. If you're not happy with the service any time within the first 30-days, then you can cancel with no penalties at all.

Try ExpressVPN risk-free for 30 days

ExpressVPN hits it for six with a 30-day money back guarantee with its VPN service. You can use it to watch on your mobile, tablet, laptop, TV, games console and more. There's 24/7 customer support and three months free when you sign-up. Try it – it's easier than you think.

Using a VPN is incredibly simple:

1. Install the VPN of your choice. ExpressVPN is the one we recommend.

2. Open up the VPN app and choose the location of the service you wish to access. For New Zealand vs Australia, you may wish to choose 'Australia' for Kayo Sports.

3. Then head over to Kayo Sports on your browser or device and enjoy the cricket using Kayo's 14-day free trial.

If, for whatever reason, you can't get it working, then do remember that you have the comfort of a 30-day money back guarantee with ExpressVPN. You could also try NordVPN, which also comes with a 30-day money back guarantee, and Surfshark which offers 24 hour assistance.
