Australia – The batting order is still been questioned. Who’ll open the batting for Australia, is it Warner and Finch, Khawaja or Watson or Finch or Watson? No one knows… While, Australian’s been in trouble with their batting order, their bowling looks shaky too.

Hazlewood been the quick of the bowlers, while looks questionable. Lyon missing on Indian spinning track, it will interesting how Australia will cope up to New Zealand squad.

New Zealand – Surprising is the word, defeating India in front of their home crowd and also on their spinning track. That’s rarely to be seen… After that win, NZ will be high with their confidence. And, a possibility to take down Australia in their second match too.

Only problem comes with NZ is their lower middle order, there’s no one to handle the innings when someone will be desperately required.

But, as soon as spinning was introduce, New Zealand lost their track. Ball spinning wide made it difficult for new batsman to adjust in. Wickets got stumbling and New Zealand which was scoring 10 and over fall down to 7 an over.

At the end of 20th over, NZ made 142/8, thanks to Grant Elliott’s 27 in 20 balls.

2nd Innings – On a spinning track with in-form NZ spinner, Australia had to score much of their runs in batting power play. Usman Khawaja made an aggressive start hitting 30 runs with 6 boundaries.

At the end of batting power play, i.e. 6 overs – Australia were 50/1. And, spinning was introduced for Australian batsmen. They scored just 15 runs in next 4 overs and lost 3 more wickets.

Glenn Maxwell and Mitchell Marsh tried to stabilize the innings, but the increasing required run rate forced them to give their wickets. Australians were 7 down by end of the 19th over, and needed 19 in next 6 balls.

New Zealand won the match by 8 runs. Australia by the 20th over were 134/9 and lost by 8 runs.
