    New Zealand needs 389 runs to win

    That’s the end of a roller coaster of an innings. Australia started with a all-out blitzkreig with David Warner and Travis Head with the pair managing 118 in the opening 10. Travis Head got to his 100 too but the fall of the openers saw the momentum shift in New Zealand’s favour. The spinners, Glenn Phillips in particular, chipped in with wickets to put a leash on the run rate. But the final 10 overs brought 96 runs thanks to some aggressive strokes from Pat Cummins and Glenn Maxwell.

    New Zealand definitely pulled it back after the initial struggle but 390 odd will still be a mighty ask for its batting unit.

    We’ll be back shortly with the reply.

    Tom Latham: We are going to bowl. Early start, reasonable surface, there may be something early with the new ball because of a day game. Jimmy Neesham is in for Mark Chapman who has a calf niggle. Adapting quickly will be key.

    Pitch Report

    Anjum Chopra and Pommie Mbangwa: It’s nice and cool. Straight boundaries - 79 metres, square - 70 metres and 64 metres respectively. England played here against Bangladesh. If you are a bowler, you are saying can we get more grass, you are not getting that today. There’ll be something in the pitch early on, for a little period only. It looks good, it’s hard, it’s flat, a few cracks here and there. You won’t get more spin than normal. In essence, good carry-through to the keeper, batters are gonna cash in after that initial period. Definitely bowl first

    Australia is one of the best cricket teams for many reasons, and being the most successful team in the World Cup with five titles is just one of them.

    Maintaining consistency, persistence, and competence are some more reasons. But, its resilient character stood underlined after the Aussies spent a night in the cellar of the points table and triumphed thrice on the bounce.

    On Saturday, this resurgent side faces off with its trans-Tasman rival New Zealand, at the picturesque setting of the HPCA ground at the foothills of the Dhauladhar mountain ranges.

    These teams – softened up by India – clash at a crucial stage of the league. New Zealand remained among the top-four teams despite losing to India here, while Australia made the grade after its resounding 309-run victory over the Netherlands earlier this week. READ MORE
