This is also the first match of the Pool A teams, this will be one of the match which will take the tournament to a new high level. This exciting game, yet a must win match for both the team to survive in the Pool A.
Talking about the host New Zealand, the team is looking strong and ready to bring down the lions. The black caps performed great as a team and showed they are worthy for the title in the warm up matches. Unfortunately, the first match didn’t go as they expected against Zimbabwe (scorecard). They showed their fighting skills against the mighty South Africans (scorecard). Comparing with the Lions, the black caps won the recent series against Sri Lanka before the World Cup, and will try to keep their winning streak. The batting line-up under Brendon McCullum, Kane Williamson and Ross Taylor is looking good. While having, Tim Southee and Trent Boult as in form wicket taking bowlers, with the experience of Daniel Vettori will surely back the bowling attack. New Zealand are the favorites for this match!
