Australia vs New Zealand World Cup 2016 Match Full Preview – Live Streaming and Highlights
T20 World cup 2016 is going on with its full swing. We have seen big scores and big hits from two of the best hitters in International cricket. The great Shahid Afridi and Chris Gayle both entertained the crowd. 14th match of the world cup will be Australia vs New Zealand, the two rivals.
Starting at 3:00 PM Pakistan standard time, the match is expected to be one of the most entertaining contest in the world cup. Australia have recently been defeated by New Zealand in ODI and T20 series. They will now be looking to take its revenge.
On Friday, the 18th March, the game will be played at beautiful stadium of Dharamshala. As the pole is very strong with the presence of Pakistan and India, both teams will like to start their tournament with a win.
Australia is likely to land with all pace attack and one only one spinner. Adam Zampa, is a new left arm, young spinner, who have already shown his spark in his recent tour to New Zealand. Skipper, Steven Smith believes Zampa has plenty of talent to display and will be showing it against New Zealand.
New Zealand, on the other hand, did a very successful experiment of giving rest to his pace attack and bringing their spinners into action. In their first game against India, their spinners grabbed 9 wickets against a side that is known to be a very well players of spinners.
Ever since Brendon McCullum has left his legacy back, New Zealand side is different than what it used to be. Their aggression level has increased. They risk taking has increased. That too was evident from skipper Kane Williamson’s move to land with three spinners. All three spinners, including Nathan McCullum, Santner and Indian based Sodhi, took 3 wickets each.
Batting now does not look any problem for the Kiwis. They have hard hitter Martin Guptill, Corey Anderson and Colin Munro in their dug out. All of them are known for power hitting and have shown that in their recent games.

Although Martin Guptill, Colin Munro and Corey Anderson were not able to demonstrate their hitting skills against India, they are still a danger for a Australia cricket team. Conditions are not new for New Zealand anymore as this would be their second International game of the tournament. They know how the pitch is behaving and how to respond to it, though they failed to do it in last game.
Overall, the contest will not be less than a full entertainment for Indian crowd, who always come in big numbers, no matter who is playing. Dharamshala, with some additional seating capacity installed before the world cup, now has 25000+ seats.
