Cricket Prediction Tips For Today's World Cup Match N vs AUS Lord's, London: New Zealand will take on Australia in one of the most high-octane clashes of ICC World Cup 2019 at the Lord's in London. In the next ball, he bowled a picture-perfect yorker to Mitchell Starc to knock down his stumps.

Saturday's contest will be a rematch of the 2015 World Cup final when New Zealand were shot out for 183 and Australia chased down the paltry target with almost 17 overs to spare.

But it was then Boult made his mark, bowling Khawaja in the final over of the innings before repeating the dosage on Mitchell Starc before trapping Jason Behrendorff lbw.

The ongoing World Cup has already witnessed some special catches and New Zealand star Martin Guptill came up with another breathtaking effort in the ongoing match against Australia.

"I think the great thing with New Zealand is that they fight and scrap every single game, regardless of whether it's a World Cup final or it's a club game", Finch said.

Trent Boult bagged the Black Caps' first ever World Cup hat-trick, but that masterful final-over treble wound up a mere footnote amid this tournament's latest botched run chase. Mitchell Starc is on top of the bowling charts with 19 wickets. While Australia didn't make any change to their squad, New Zealand included opening batsman Henry Nicholls and leg-spinner Ish Sodhi in place of opener Colin Munro and fast bowler Matt Henry.

New Zealand started stunningly with the ball.

Captain Kane Williamson top-scored but only managed 40, and after he and Lyle Taylor had departed for 30, the Kiwis collapsed to 157 all out.

Wicket-keeper: Tom Latham is a decent option for this game.

At 92-5, Australia were in serious trouble, but a 107-run partnership between Usman Khawaja and Alex Carey salvaged their chances.

And with New Zealand losing just one game so far this tournament, to Pakistan last time out, it's far from going to be a walk in the park for Finch and his side.

Latham fell victim to a spectacular one-handed catch from Steve Smith, and their demise continued as Nathan Lyon caught and bowled Jimmy Neesham for just nine.
