Cape Town - Australia fast bowler Kane Richardson is prepared for the Tri-Series T20I final at Eden Park to be another tough outing for bowlers.

The ground, primarily used as for rugby, played host to the highest ever T20 run chase at any level on Friday when Australia romped past New Zealand with a total of 32 sixes hit across the two innings.

Much has been said about Eden Park's ridiculously short straight boundaries with Richardson simply hoping the expectation of big runs gets the better of the batsmen.

"All the expectation's going to be on the batsmen to replicate that and that's going to be quite hard," he said.

"I don't know what the wash-up will be in the bowler's meeting and what we can do better."
