Latham departs, caught by Hazlewood! This time, it’s not Starc making the catch, a first in this innings. Zampa sends a nicely flighted delivery, tempting Latham into a reverse sweep. However, he only manages to find the top edge, and it’s an easy take for Hazlewood stationed at short third man. Zampa, once again, proves to be the partnership breaker. The crucial factor here was the extra bounce that led to Latham’s dismissal. Latham’s innings comes to an end at 21 runs from 22 balls, including 2 fours.
New Zealand’s third wicket fell. Daryl Mitchell was out after scoring 54 runs in 51 balls. He hit 6 fours and one six. The team has scored 168 runs after 24 hours and have lost 3 wickets.
Australia had scored staggering total of 388 runs with hundred run innings from Travis Head and excellent innings from David Warner of 89 runs.
ODI Cricket World Cup: Australia Takes on New Zealand.
The New Zealand squad is demonstrating exceptional performance in the ongoing World Cup, securing victories in four out of their five matches. As a result, they currently hold the third position in the points table with a total of eight points. In contrast, Australia has won three of their five matches and currently occupies the fourth position on the points table, amassing a total of six points.
Recent Performance of Australia
Australia’s most recent encounter was with the Netherlands in ODI Cricket World Cup, a game in which they secured the most significant victory in World Cup history. Notably, Travis Head was absent from that match, but it appears highly likely that he will be in the lineup today. Head is anticipated to take the opening position alongside the experienced batsman David Warner, while Mitchell Marsh is set to bat at number three. If Travis Head does make it into the final eleven, it may mean that Marnus Labuschagne has to be a substitute.
According to our match prediction gauge, this game is expected to be a closely contested battle. Nevertheless, the Australian team appears to hold a slight advantage. Moreover, it’s worth noting that at this venue, the team winning the toss may opt to field first.
