New Zealand vs Australia LIVE SCORE, ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 Match Updates: Nathan Lyon resumes Australia’s chokehold on the New Zealand batting attack after the drinks break. Both Williamson and Taylor have been penned back and starved of any chance to get runs on the board. Just two runs come off the over in the shape of a couple of singles.
Preview: Kane Williamson’s New Zealand will look to bounce back from recent defeat against Pakistan with victory over Aaron Finch’s Australian side when they meet at Lord’s on Saturday.
In their previous match, New Zealand, who were unbeaten in their first six games of the tournament, lost four early wickets before Jimmy Neesham’s 97 not out lifted them to a respectable total of 237 for six at Edgbaston.
Babar Azam scored 101 not out and Haris Sohail collected 68 runs to guide Pakistan to their target with five balls to spare.
The Kiwis are currently at third position on the points table with five wins and 11 points to their name. Kane Williamson and side are just one win away from making it to the semis, and he will hope his team will come good against Australia.
Australia became the first team to qualify for the semi-final after defeating England. While they achieved the first target, Finch will hope that his team doesn’t drop points against New Zealand and keep the winning momentum going.
