Good morning everyone! It’s been a fascinating World Cup so far, so many twists in the tale and fascinating finishes. The West Indies have been the surprise packet in the early rounds, however a heavy loss to India – who look to be finding their form at last – will hurt. England are in some serious trouble after starting with two straight losses and will need to get back on their feet very quickly.
But today we have a classic Trans-Tasman battle between these two old foes – Australia and New Zealand. The warm up game the two teams played revealed some weaknesses in Australia, with the inability to take wickets proving their undoing. New Zealand started the tournament with a shock loss to the West Indies but have bounced back since then with two strong wins over Bangaldesh and India.
It should be an incredible game today, so let’s get into it!
