Brathwaite heroics in vain Pakistan hunt down England- Cricket World Cup week in review

Brathwaite heroics in vain Pakistan hunt down England- Cricket World Cup week in review

Australia come into this clash against neighbours New Zealand in fine form having won their last four matches in a row to move to the top of the group, and their last win was an emphatic 64-run victory against hosts England on Tuesday.

Those results, not to mention West Indies all-rounder Carlos Brathwaite's heroic hitting and Mohammed Shami's hat-trick for India, have made for an enthralling week at the World Cup...

New Zealand go into the match after suffering a defeat against Pakistan, which snapped their unbeaten streak in the tournament.

India still needs to win one match so they could secure a safe spot in the ICC 2019 World Cup Semi-Finals. Don't expect Australia to take their foot off the gas, or to give their fringe players a chance.

Despite their explosive batting, Australia's bowlers stole the show.

No injury worries, but is time for the Blackcaps to get Ish Sodhi a game? Trent Boult and Colin de Grandhomme have not been amongst the wickets.

If New Zealand are to triumph on Saturday, they will likely have to subdue in-form Australia opener David Warner, who is the tournament's leading run-scorer with 500 runs. Cummins has gone wicketless across 18 overs in the past two matches, for 108 runs, but Langer backed the pace bowler for success against New Zealand.

President Trump optimistic about meeting with Chinese president at G20 summit
Japanese Economy Minister Toshimitsu Motegi and US Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer were to meet later in Osaka. As "we expand digital trade, we must also ensure the resilience and security of our 5G networks", he said.

"Usually you come to Lord's and there's sort of a quiet murmur when you play England, but I guess playing Australia it might be a little bit different when you have Kiwis and Australians filling out the seats". With the warmest day of the World Cup expected, both teams will be pushed harder.

Of the five bowlers to take five-wicket hauls at the tournament, two are Australian: Starc and Jason Behrendorff, whose combined left-arm pace and guile blew away England on Tuesday at Lord's, and stripped the home side of the No 1 ranking in one-day worldwide cricket. Their last completed match against each other was in February 2017. Meanwhile, let's find out betting odds, free bet odds, predictions, and favourites for New Zealand vs Australia (NZ vs AUS) ICC CWC 2019 match.

Jimmy Neesham, pictured at training at Lord's, said the Pakistan loss was a "blip" in New Zealand's World Cup campaign.

Australia's ODI record at Lord's is 13-7-1.

"Australia are a team we have played a lot over the last two or three years".

This is a huge game in the context of the race for the semi-final spots. He has also authored two cricket-related books.
