Australia Vs New Zealand World Cup Preview

Australia takes on Kiwis in the World Cup on Friday 25th February at Vidarbha Cricket Association Stadium in Nagpur, India. It is a testing time for both the teams as they are here in World Cup after a poor show, New Zealand Vs Bangladesh and Australia Vs South Africa. However, New Zealand’s magical win over Kenya and Australia’s win against Zimbabwe should boost both their teams’ confidence.

This match is a special one in this World Cup Edition as Australia and New Zealand cricket board association have made the decision to complete their Chappell-Hadlee Trophy in the same match. The winner of the match would gain the points and grab the trophy as well, a double damaka for the team and for the viewers.

For Australia, SR Watson and MJ Clarke are expected to do well in the batting department where as MG Johnson with the ball. Also, they need to perform well as a team in fielding and other aspects too.

Positive: SR Watson, MJ Clarke and MG Johnson performed well in their first match against Zimbabwe.

Negative: Pointing is yet to recover from the TV set issue result of magical throw by Chris Mpofu of Zimbabwe.

For New Zealand, McCullum and Ross Taylor are expected to fire with the bat and Vettori with the ball. I hope that the team would field well.

Positive: Hamish, Oram and McCullum brothers performed well in their first match against Kenya.

Negative: Team says that Coach John Wright is busy with his personal works, though not a clear info.

Likely 11:

Australia: SR Watson, B Haddin, R Pointing, M Clarke, D Hussey, C White, S Smith, M Johnson, B Lee, J Krejza, S Tait.

New Zealand: M Guptill, B McCullum, R Taylor, J Ryder, J Franklin, S Styris, J Oram, N McCullum, D Vettori, T Southee, K Mills.

Last Meet:

The last match when these teams played resulted in a win for New Zealand when New Zealand scored 241/9 and Australia 190 all-out in New Zealand. It is time for Aussies for proves as defending champions.

Numbers Game:

According to Castrol Cricket, New Zealand’s Overall Castrol Index is 16 less than Australia where as Kiwis Batting Momentum & Bowling Frequency are too less than Aussies.
