NZ vs AUS, Match 37, ICC Cricket World Cup 2019, 29 June 2019
AUS won by 86 runs
BALL BY BALL
Mitchell Starc ends with five. Hits the pitch hard, Santner shuffled across to use the pace and help it over fine leg for six, but he doesn't get enough distance behind the ball, and it is easily pouched on the boundary edge. A dominant win by Australia in the end. Some magnificent bowling, and even better catching on display throughout the day. That vital partnership between Usman Khawaja and Alex Carey proved to be the difference between the two sides. New Zealand were very poor with the bat, and should've been more attacking when they had Australia against the ropes in the first innings. However, full credit must go to the Aussies, and they now go three points clear at the top of the table. New Zealand remain in third place. Tomorrow's World Cup action is a tasty one. England against India. Plenty at stake for the hosts. It should not be missed.
