New Zealand playing fantastic cricket: Starc ahead of clash

Aaron Finch

Behrendorff then trapped Guptill (20) in front of the stumps - and danger man Kane Williamson departed for 40 when his faint edge off Starc was taken by Carey as New Zealand were reduced to 97-3.

Australia beat New Zealand by 86 runs at Lord's in London on Saturday.

Aaron Finch's side, who have now won seven out of their eight matches and have already qualified for the semi-finals, scored 243-9 in their 50 overs and New Zealand were bowled out for 157 in reply. In 2015, as a 15-year-old, he was part of the group of net bowlers which helped England prepare for the second Ashes Test against Australia.

Gamechanger: The 107-run partnership between Alex Carey and Usman Khawaja stabilized the Australian innings at a time when it looked like they would struggle to reach even 200.

The last time these two teams had met in the World Cup, it had ended in heartbreak for New Zealand.

Australia (AUS) Squad: Aaron Finch (C), David Warner, Usman Khawaja, Steven Smith, Shaun Marsh, Marcus Stoinis, Glenn Maxwell, Alex Carey, Adam Zampa, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Pat Cummins, Mitchell Starc, Nathan Lyon, Jason Behrendorff and Kane Richardson. Mitchell Starc (5/26) was also on a hat-trick but was denied by No. 11 Trent Boult himself.

Historic rivalry is therefore up for grabs but with New Zealand just one win away from joining their neighbours in the semi-finals, there's plenty at stake for both sides as Lord's gets set to hit temperatures exceeding 30 degrees.

Trent Boult took the headlines with New Zealand's first World Cup hat-trick, and although Boult also started proceedings with the wicket of Aaron Finch, it was Lockie Ferguson who made the pivotal inroads.

For the Kiwis, Kane Williamson, Trent Boult and Lockie Ferguson are ever important. New Zealand lost one match, while one match against India was canceled.

Tom Latham has been in a poor form in World Cup 2019, averaging just 6.75 in 5 innings. The bowler achieved the feat against Australia as he dismissed Usman Khawaja, Mitchell Starc and JasonBehrendorff in the final over.
