New Zealand will be taking on Australia at Lord’s and would look to seal a berth in the semi-finals of the tournament. The Kiwis are presently placed at number 2 in the points table while the Aussies are already in the knockouts.


Another one bites the dust and New Zealand are struggling at 118/5. Colin de Grandhomme is gone for a golden duck

New Zealand are losing wickets at regular intervals. It’s Ross Taylor who will have to depart after he skies one and Carey takes a good catch

Kane Williamson is gone after edging one to Alex Carey off Mitchell Starc for 40. New Zealand are 97/3

Alex Carey and Usman Khawaja have steadied the ship for their side

New Zealand have been able to pick quick wickets against Australia. A win in this match will book a place for them in semis

New Zealand skipper Kane Williamson summed it up too rather succinctly saying, “Usually you come to Lord’s and there’s sort of a quiet murmur when you play England, but I guess playing Australia it might be a little bit different when you have Kiwis and Australians filling out the seats. It will be a really good atmosphere, whatever it is.”
