The rivalry between Australia & New Zealand is just like India vs Pakistan match. Both the nation play very competitive cricket against each other.
Australia is already qualified for World Cup Semi Final but can make New Zealand team Semi Final chances less as NZ loss match against Pakistan.
This is the third match to be played at Lord’s & in both the matches we saw how difficult it is to chase down target here. In fact in the last 15 years, there is no team able to chase more than 250 even. Also, the pitch is helpful to both Seamers & spinners.
Last time these two teams played World Cup final in MCG and we all know what starc did in first over of the match to remove in-form Bredon McCullum.
New Zealand would be eager to take revenge of that final with Australia & sealed their position in Semi’s.
Most of the cricket betting sites are with Australia in this clash between two giants.
It would be good to see two best fast bowlers of this generation and have a great record of picking wickets in power plays.
