Pace bowler Tim Southee says New Zealand will not be daunted by facing trans-Tasman rivals Australia in Sunday's World Cup final in Melbourne.
A One Hundred-Thousand sell-out is expected at the Melbourne Cricket Ground, where the Kiwis have not played since 2009. But Southee says they are not too worried about the size of the ground.
Meanwhile Australia captain Michael Clarke says losing to New Zealand in the group stage of the World Cup was a kick up the backside his team needed.
Clarke's side lost by one wicket to the Black Caps but will meet them in Sunday's final after a 95-run semifinal win against India.
