New Zealand Vs Australia Match Preview: New Zealand seeks to bounce back from the defeat against Pakistan

New Zealand is just one win away from reaching semifinals. No wonder, they will try to give their best to win the game and book their semifinal spot. Their only problem is that the name of their opponent is five-times world champions Australia – who will show no mercy and gonna try their best to snatch another win despite booking their semifinal spot.

New Zealand

New Zealand was one of the two teams in this tournament who were unbeaten in this campaign before the match against Pakistan. Despite the loss, they are still in the second position with 11 points in the point table. It is expected they will earn a spot in semifinals. Things will not be easy though as the Tasmanian neighbor is in red hot form. New Zealand players must play an exceptional game in order to beat the ”Germany of Cricket” Australia.


The five-times champions are the first team in the World Cup who booked their spot for semifinals. They just beat host and one of the hot-favorite in this tournament England by a large margin. Although they booked their place in the semi, they are too much professional and expected not to slow down the things before they achieve their ultimate goal. Aaron Finch‘s troops are doing great in every department. New Zealand has to play an out-worldy game in order to beat the Kangaroos.

Weather Condition

The upcoming match between Australia and New Zealand will be a very contested match as two Tasmanian neighbors will try their best to earn a victory. The weather is expected to be a cloudy one. Weather forecasts can’t confirm whether the rain will come or not.

Pitch Report

As the weather is expected to be cloudy, the team who will win the toss may choose to bowl first. It will be much safer for them. But, in case of the sun shows up then it will be wise to choose to bat first.
