Australia Preview

They say you should never knock Australia out in the World Cup. Now we know why. Just a few days ago, Australia was at the bottom of the score table in this year’s World Cup after losing the first two matches. Now, after 3 consecutive wins, they are firmly in the top 4. In their most recent match, they destroyed the Netherlands by a whopping 309 runs – the biggest winning margin in history World Cup. That big win also boosted their net run rate significantly, lifting it to 1,142.

That win came with centuries from David Warner (104 off 93 balls) and Glen Maxwell (106 off 44 balls), helping the team post a whopping 399-8 on the board. Warner has beaten hundreds of opponents and at the time of writing, Warner is the third highest run-getter in the competition with 332 runs from 5 innings at an average of 66.40.

Maxwell launched a hundred off just 40 balls, making it the fastest ever World Cup century. The fact that he is in such good form is great news for Australia. Another batter who got some valuable runs against the Netherlands was Steve Smith. He has struggled to get going in the past few matches, but that knock of 71 off 68 deliveries should stand him in good stead.

Australia’s bowling is also becoming more and more dangerous with each match. Pat Cummins, Mitchell Starc and Josh Hazlewood form a superb fast bowling trio. They are three of the best bowlers in the world at the moment and the surface at Dharamsala will suit them well. We expect them to get two to three points in the power play.

Also, watch out for Adam Zampa. With three consecutive four-wicket hauls, the leg-spinner has climbed to the top of the list of wicket-takers in the competition. He has regained his flow and playing form. Moreover, he also took 14 wickets in 8 ODI matches against New Zealand.

New Zealand Review

New Zealand was at the top of the World Cup points table until last weekend. However, the loss to India in the previous match and South Africa’s big win against Bangladesh pushed them to third place. That doesn’t worry the Kiwis much as they still have 8 points in hand with 4 matches left. Furthermore, their net run rate are stands at an impressive 1,481.

Daryl Mitchell has had great contact over the past few months and has been New Zealand’s main middle-order batsman in Kane Williamson’s absence. His stunning 130 against India at Dharamshala was one of the best batting displays of the tournament and took him to 268 runs from 4 innings at an average of 89.33.

Bowling all-rounder Rachin Ravindra has become an absolute superstar. He was New Zealand’s highest run-getter in this World Cup with 290 runs in 5 innings at an average of 72.50. Ravindra hit a century along with two fifties, including a brilliant 75 in the last match against India.

Opener Devon Conway has had a quiet few games, but he is a quality player and in good form. We are waiting for a strong push from him in this match.

In the bowling, their left-arm spinner Mitchell Santner (12 wickets in 5 innings at 16.91), has been most impressive. Santner bowled well in these conditions and could also cause problems for the Australian batsmen.

However, it is the performance of pace trio Trent Boult, Matt Henry and Lockie Ferguson that will decide whether New Zealand can win this match or not. All three were genuine wicket-takers, but the Indian batsmen played very well. They will need to play well in tandem to keep Australia’s rampaging batting unit in check.

AUS vs NZ – Prediction & Analysis

Australia vs New Zealand, arch-rivals. This gonna be an interesting match.

After a lackluster start, Australia improved and won 3 consecutive matches to confirm the number 4 position on the scoreboard. Meanwhile, the Kiwis suffered their first defeat of the tournament at the hands of India this Sunday. However, that doesn’t take away from the fact that New Zealand are one of the best teams in this World Cup. They have a poor overall record against Australia in the ODI World Cup, but it would be unwise to write them off. This will be the start of a contest between two equally dangerous sides who can destroy any team on their day.

Australia have won three head-to-head matches in the ongoing ODI World Cup.

  • David Warner is Australia’s in-form batsman, having scored consecutive centuries.
  • New Zealand’s top-order and middle-order will need to watch out for Australia’s fast bowlers on this track.
  • Australia holds a 95-39 head-to-head record against New Zealand in ODIs.

Australia vs New Zealand have happen 11 times at the ICC ODI World Cup. Australia has won 8 of those matches, while New Zealand has won 3. Furthermore, Australia has won the last 5 ODI matches against the Kiwis.

Australia might be the highest chance to win the Australia Vs New Zealand Match.
