New Zealand produced an all-round performance in the opening match of the Super 12 stage of the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup against hosts and defending champions Australia to record a big 89-run win on Saturday. After being put in to bat first, last year’s runners-up, were off to a flier with Finn Allen smashing 42 off 16 before Devon Conway took over to remain unbeaten on 92 off 58 and guided his team to a massive 200/3 in 20 overs. Australia never looked in control of the chase as New Zealand struck early taking three wickets inside the Powerplay.

WICKET! Matthew Wade edges one from Lockie Ferguson to be out caught behind on 2. Australia are in tatters. New Zealand are on top. Score 82/6 in 12.2 Overs, chasing 201.
The asking rate continues to rise but Glenn Maxwell is regularly unfurling his reverse hits to add boundaries to his total. Is Sodhi continues and Maxwell with a perfectly executed switch-hit sends the ball flying into the Sydney night sky for a six. 8 runs from it. NZ 82/5 in 12 Overs, chasing 201.

WICKET! Another one bites the dust. New Zealand have been spectacular in the field with their catching tonight. James Neesham takes another fine catch in the deep after Tim David tried enforcing himself having earlier struck a six in the over of Mitchell Santner. He waned a repeat of the result but didn’t get the shot right to hole out on 12. Australia 68/5 in 10.2 Overs, chasing 201.
Eight runs from the 10th over, bowled by Is Sodhi including a boundary to Glenn Maxwell off the last delivery. Australia have crawled to 62/4 in 10 overs. They need to score 139 off the next 10 to chase down the target now. New Zealand have been the dominant side so far after 30 overs in this match. Can Australia turn it around in the final 10?
WICKET! WOW. This well could be the catch of the world cup. Marcus Stoinis went airborne over covers. Glenn Phillips ran to his right and dived full length to catch the ball mid-air, pulling off a stunning catch. Marcus Stoinis holes out on 7. Australia in trouble at 50/4 in 8.2 Overs, chasing 201. Mitchell Santner takes his second wicket.

Four singles in the second over of Mitchell Santner. The required run-rate is already hovering over 12 now for Australia. Glenn Maxwell and Marcus Stoinis will have to line up a bowler whom to attack. Score 41/3 in 7 Overs, chasing 201.
Right-arm fast Lockie Ferguson into the attack now. And just three singles in it. Glenn Maxwell and Marcus Stoinis are the two new batter for the hosts. Australia are struggling at 37/3 after six overs in the chase of 201.
WICKET! Oh Australia’s top-order has been blown away inside the Powerplay overs. Mitchell Marsh started in ominous fashion and looked to carry on with another aerial shot. The ball did go quite high but the distance wasn’t there. Credit to James Neesham who kept his calm to take this high catch. A slower delivery outfoxes Marsh. He scored 16 off 12. Australia 34/3 in 4.5 Overs, chasing 201.
WICKET! Mitchell Santner finishes his first over on a high after copping some punishment from Mitchel Marsh who struck a four and a massive six off him earlier. Aaron Finch wanted to launch one over covers himself but miscues it to be caught brilliantly by Kane Williamson on 13. Australia 30/2 in 4 Overs, chasing 201.
In reply, Australia crumbled to the spin of Mitchell Santner and the pace of Tim Southee – both took three wickets each. Trent Boult took 2 while Lockie Ferguson and Ish Sodhi took a wicket each. The hosts were bowled out for 111 in 17.1 Overs.
Australia captain Aaron Finch won the toss and opted to bowl first. The Aussie skipper said his decision was influenced by the forecast of rain and also that he thinks the pitch will get better (for batting) as the game progresses. New Zealand captain Kane Williamson said he would have bowled first as well citing the same reasons as his Australian counterpart.
The moment is finally here when the world will witness the beginning of an extravagant cricket event known as the T20 World Cup. This time the action gets underway Down Under and the first game of the Super12 round will see defending champions and hosts, Australia, taking on trans-Tasman rivals – New Zealand. Almost 12 months ago, these two teams fought for the trophy in the final of the T20 World Cup 2021. The Aaron Finch-led side emerged victorious and won the title for the first time.
Australia and New Zealand will be up against each other and the game will present a tentative route map of how the tournament will pan out. The defending champions will enter the contest on the back of three consecutive defeats – 2 at the hands of England and 1 against India in the warm-up game. They have the personnel to defend the title in the likes of Matthew Wade, Josh Hazlewood, Adam Zampa, Tim David and David Warner. One would hope that the tantalizing clash won’t have any rain disruption come Saturday.
New Zealand, last year’s runners-up, enter the competition with some mixed results behind them. After winning a three-match away T20I series against the West Indies 2-1, New Zealand were the runners-up in the recent tri-series at home, winning against Bangladesh twice and once against Pakistan, before losing to them in the final.
They will be missing out on Daryl Mitchell for the opening match, due to him still being on path to recovery from broken finger. Fast bowlers Lockie Ferguson and Adam Milne were also managed carefully due to them coming back from injuries apart from New Zealand not having won a match in Australia since 2011.
