While it is so many times the world champions and Champions Trophy winners Australia faced some tough timing in the front of New Zealand and last time in the warm-up match they defeat Sri Lanka with six-wicket in the same venue.

The Black Caps chased down a mammoth 357-run target with a good 23 balls to spare. Opener Martin Guptill thinks this form is the scrappy showing in the rain-affected warm-up against India.

Australia has an explosive opening pair in Aaron Finch and David Warner, followed by Chris Lynn, this is also touted as the powerful hitters in the world. The trio would look to go hard at the bowlers and put them on the back foot. Smith will spearhead the middle-order, expected to be supported by the likes of Glenn Maxwell and Moises Henriques.

The Australian captain is having some good player at the bowling department, with Mitchell Starc, Pat Cummins, Josh Hazlewood, and James Pattinson all charged up and raring to have a go at the batsmen.

Keeping the English conditions in mind, it is most important that the Australian players should be playing the match in a calm way so then the batsmen can play the game well with the ball.

Having fully recovered from a foot injury, the veteran player Starc will be the leader of the cricket match and when last time he led the match at 2006 and 2009 emerged as winners. Guptill and Williamson will be the key to New Zealand, and also crucial to the side’s fortunes will be the form of the experienced Ross Taylor, Corey Anderson, and Luke Ronchi.

With the game is concerned, New Zealand will expect swing bowlers Tim Southee and Trent Boult, and their joined performances can cause some damage. The last time the two teams met at the important and famous tournament was at the 2015 World Cup final when New Zealand emerged as the winner.
