T&Cs apply, 18+
The 37th game of the World Cup at Lord’s would be a royal battle between Australia and New Zealand. With six wins in seven games, Australia has already made it to the semi-finals and sit on the top of the points table. New Zealand is just a point behind and has nearly made it to the next round. The two teams have played great cricket over the last few weeks and this would be a great contest.
Though the two sides have shared a great rivalry over the years in the World Cups, Australia has dominated their southern neighbors and won most games including the final in the last edition. It would be interesting to see if New Zealand is able to pull off a good win and end Australia’s run of four successive wins.

Aaron Finch’s side has lived up to the reputation of being the defending champions. In the last game against archrivals England, they just showed their class and registered a comprehensive win. Apart from the game against the Indians the side has looked the most balanced outfit in the tournament. Finch would be hoping to win this one and build the momentum ahead of the knockout stage.
Aaron Finch and David Warner are in great form at the moment and have 996 runs between them in the tournament. Usman Khawaja, Steven Smith, and Glenn Maxwell have also played their part well in many of the games. With the likes of Marcus Stoinis and Alex Carey in the lower order, they have an incredibly strong batting line-up that will challenge the Kiwi bowlers.
As far as their bowling is concerned Mitchell Starc has been in brilliant form and Jason Behrendorff has also done well with that fifer in the last game. Pat Cummins adds strength to the pace attack. With Nathan Lyon back in the side and Maxwell to bowl in the middle overs, they would test the New Zealanders with their spin attack as well.

Kane Williamson’s side had to finally deal with a loss in their last game against Pakistan. They looked a great team till the last game but some of their weaknesses were exposed in the last game. While they recovered well from a poor start the score wasn’t enough to trouble the Pakistani batting. Williamson would like to put this loss behind and make a good start for the next game.
Martin Guptill and Colin Munro the openers seem to have lost form in the most crucial part of the tournament. This is worrying for the side but Kane Williamson looks in great form. Ross Taylor also seems to have hit a tough patch. But the side has great finishers in the form of Tom Latham, James Neesham and Colin de Grandhomme who would be looking to do well in the next game. The latter two rescued the side in the last game with a big partnership.
It is the pace attack of Trent Boult, Matt Henry and Lockie Ferguson that makes their bowling attack very tough to score against. The trio has done well in the tournament especially Ferguson and Henry. They would look for good support from Nesham, Grandhomme and Mitchell Santner in the middle overs to challenge the strong Australian batting line-up.

It would be bright and sunny in London on June 29 and this would make it great conditions for the game. The pitch is expected to be a good one as we have seen in the last couple of games at this ground. The team batting first would need a score in excess of 320 runs to win this game.
Lord’s is one the best ODI venues in England and the flat character of the pitch over the last many years and the shorter square boundaries make it a great place for batsmen. Spinners have their role in the later stage of the game while the fast bowlers need to make early use of the conditions to do well here.
We have already seen two high scoring games at this venue and the teams that have batted first have gone onto put up huge scores on the board. The spinners have done well in the second innings and we expect the side that wins the toss to choose to bat first on this wicket and put up a big score on the board.
It has been an incredible tournament for New Zealand and Australia and they have looked among the best sides. The Australian team has been peaking at the right time and has won their last four games while New Zealand comes into the game after suffering a defeat at the hands of the Pakistanis where some of their weakness in batting was exposed. Going into this game we expect the punters to have their money on Australians to win this one.
