Poll:How many overs will Australia take to chase the 184-run target?
01:08 PM

Obviously pretty good start by the boys. It's in our hands to chase the runs and if we start well there is no reason why we can't (chase this down). Pretty good MCG wicket really. I thought it was a little bit slow than we are used to, but pretty good all-round wicket. One aspect we have been working hard on is our fielding, another strong performance and hopefully like I said we can start well with the bat and chase this total down. The outfield is pretty standard, maybe a little bit quicker than normal, but the ground is in fantastic condition. It is in our hands now.

Australia's best bat - Steve Smith

Steve Smith's last 12 ODI innings in Australia have produced 812 runs at an average of 81.2 and a strike rate of 96.4.

08:47 AM

Clarke's last hurrah in ODIs

08:40 AM

It's a special game. I would have batted first. The wicket looks fantastic so the toss doesn't matter I guess. Same XI for us. Need to play good cricket. The boys are mentally ready to go. The Australian public have been so supportive. Hopefully we can play some entertaining cricket for them today.

Michael Clarke

08:39 AM

It's been great, tremendous semi-final the other day, it's been a great tournament so far. We will bat first. The wicket looks outstanding, so put the runs on the board. We've got the same team. We are really happy and we know we will play well today. We need to stay pretty stable emotionally. We've been very fortunate to have a lot of support from back home. It's going to be a great final.

New Zealand win toss and decide to bat first against Australia in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2015 final

08:31 AM

'Boult' the man for Kiwis

15 of Trent Boult's 21 wickets in the tournament have been batsmen batting at numbers 1-4; this percentage of 71.4% is the highest of anyone taking at least 10 wickets.

08:29 AM

The Black Caps are attempting to record their 300th ODI victory. They have lost 339 and tied six.

08:29 AM

Australia have lost the toss in six of their last seven completed ODIs against New Zealand on home soil, but have won five of these seven meetings.

08:23 AM

It's probably no secret that most of the other teams around the world would probably fair New Zealand to win over Australia.

Brendon McCullum

08:20 AM

I believe if we play our best, we can beat New Zealand

Michael Clarke

TEAM OUTLOOK

AUSTRALIA: Expectant. Everyone wants them to pull off a grand swansong for Clarke and prove their credentials as the best around, so there will be pressure too. How they go about stifling New Zealand's flair will hold the key. Like New Zealand, they are likely to field an unchanged side.

08:08 AM

Oz warming up at MCG

08:06 AM

TEAM OUTLOOK

NEW ZEALAND: Having the time of their lives, as McCullum has said. While all the spotlight is on Clarke, their own senior statesman Daniel Vettori too, in all likelihood, will be playing his last game. They have already announced an unchanged side for the final.

X-Factor: Australia vs New Zealand

The pacemen, who dictated the course of their league encounter. If there is even a hint of swing, Trent Boult and Tim Southee will be a handful for the Aussies. But then The Aussies have Mitchell Starc and Johnson, who raised his game against India in the semifinal. Boult's 21 wickets in 8 games, incidentally, is just one more than Starc's tally.
