Sydney, Oct 4 (ANI): Australia and New Zealand will play in the finals of the Champion Trophy on Monday, with both the teams vying to make history.

The all-Antipodean decider is likely to add spice to the final, the Sydney Morning Herald reports.

Australia is aiming to become the first country to successfully defend the Champions Trophy title following their win in India three years ago.

New Zealand will also be out to make history by becoming the first side to win the tournament twice, having won the 2000 edition in Kenya.

Australia topped their pool group and beat England by nine wickets in Friday's semi-final in Centurion.

The Black Caps also finished top of their group, and have now notched three successive wins, over Sri Lanka, England and Younus Khan's side. (ANI)
