On Saturday, Australia vs New Zealand will take place at the HPCA Stadium, Dharamsala. The five-time world champions have made a comeback after their slow start. They are currently in good form after they defeated the Netherlands by a margin of 309 runs and have won three out of five games so far and are in fourth place in the points table.
While the Kiwis are coming from a defeat from the Men in Blue they so far have won four games and are third in the table. The Aussies have found their form after their back-to-back losses against India and South Africa. They are currently on track and would like to hand over the Black Caps their second defeat and make sure they move closer to the semi-final spot.
Kiwis are missing their regular skipper Kane Williamson but Tom Latham has guided the team decently so far in the marquee tournament. Daryl Mitchell's century against India has given their middle order a big relief.
