Australia will contemplate playing around with their XI to find a way to keep New Zealand in control

Great picture

The logistics have changed significantly due to the impact of the Auckland lockdown, and there won’t be a crowd to watch the rest of the game, but the challenge remains the same for Australia: they have to win three games in a row in Wellington if they are to enter the draw.

New Zealand, with a team at its best, played dynamic and confident cricket despite a sigh of relief at the end of a pulsating contest in Dunedin where the game was almost snatched away. Marcus Stoinis and Daniel Sams.

Australia has identified that it was the post-powerplay period, the pre-death period with the ball in which they particularly struggled to match New Zealand’s. From 7-16 overs they conceded 11.35 and only took three goals, while the home team had done 9.02 runs per over and claimed 10 goals.

Return to form Martin Guptill in Dunedin marked another box for New Zealand with most players now contributing in the first two games. However, Team Seifert had started with two low scores and a Kyle Jamieson had struggled during 56 years in Dunedin.

Both squads have unusually long breaks between matches. Auckland-based New Zealand players returning home briefly had to leave the city immediately when the lockdown was announced and undergo preventive Covid-19 tests which all came back negative on Monday. New Zealand were the first international team to play behind closed doors during the pandemic, against Australia at SCG last March, but this will be the first time since then.
