The 36th match of the tournament will be played between Pakistan and Afghanistan in Leeds, while the 37th match will be played between Australia and New Zealand at Lord's In London.

Australia remain top of the points table. All three of them are match winners on their days and will be hoping to keep the winning momentum going against New Zealand.

Earlier, New Zealand quick Trent Boult took a last-over hat-trick, after Usman Khawaja helped Australia recover from early trouble.

Australia win by 86 runs! Marcus Stoinis and Usman Khawaja were batting in the middle. Mitchell Starc is on top of the bowling charts with 19 wickets.

Finch won the toss and made a decision to bat first in seemingly ideal, sunny conditions at the "home of cricket". Kane Williamson, who lost a rare toss, said he would have liked to bat first too.

Boult finished with figures of 4/51 as Australia posted 243/9 in 50 overs.

The footballer, who isn't in Zidane's plans for next year, is to leave on loan for 2019/20 and come back the season after . I wanted to prove my worth, this year hasn't been a great season for me and I just wanted things to go right", he added.

Kane Williamson (C), Aaron Finch, David Warner, Steve Smith, James Neesham, Alex Carrey, Colin de Grandhomme, Mitchell Santner, Mitchell Starc, Trent Boult, Lockie Ferguson. The opening batsman pulled off one of the best catches of all time to send back Steve Smith and pile more misery on Australia.

A ideal cross-seam delivery saw the end of Marcus Stoinis, caught behind, before Neesham tried to one-up Guptill in his next over, taking a superb one-handed return catch after Glenn Maxwell mistimed a pull shot off the toe end of the bat.

After Australia fell to 92 for 5, Khawaja steadied the innings with 88 and combined in a century stand with Alex Carey who hit 71. Khawaja failed to kick on after Carey's wicket but the headlines were stolen by a last over hat-trick by Trent Boult (4/51).

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.

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.
