Match Details: Australia vs New Zealand
Date: 29th June, 2019
Time: 06:00 PM IST
Venue: Lord’s, London
Pitch Report: The pitch at Lord’s was excellent for batting in the match between Australia vs England. Although the ball swung in the initial few overs after that, it helped the batsman. We expect the same in this match and plenty of runs to be scored

AUS vs NZ Fantasy Tips and Prediction
Australia:Defending champions have becomes the first team to qualify for the semis. They have played like champions in the match against England which was expecting to be the match of the tournament turn out to be a one-sided match. The Australian top order has been impeccable in the tournament, the only team who hasn’t lost a wicket in the first 10 overs. David Warner with 500 runs in the tournament so far is at the top of the run-getters while his partner Finch is second with 496 runs. This speaks the brand of cricket they have played in this tournament. The leading wicket-taker Mitchell Starc (with 19 wickets) bowled the ball of the tournament which bowled out Ben Stokes, who could single-handedly shift the game in favor of England. Steve Smith would be the X factor in this match as Australia may lose wickets upfront as Kiwis have got some great new ball bowlers.
Probable XI: Aaron Finch (c), David Warner, Steven Smith, Usman Khawaja, Glenn Maxwell, Mitchell Starc, Jason Behrendorff, Nathan Lyon, Pat Cummins, Marcus Stoinis, Alex Carey (wk)
New Zealand:Finally, their winning streak has come to an end, Pakistan has defeated Kiwis comprehensively by 6 wickets. They are over-reliant on Kane Williamson which is not good for a team contending for the world cup. Openers are in bizarre form, Martin Guptill is finding new ways to get out, while Colin Munro has become a liability for the team. He must be replaced by Henry Nicholls who has done well for New Zealand in the recent past. Tom Latham should open with Martin Guptill which brings more stability in the top order. Kane Williamson is a class apart, the classiest batsman in this whole world cup. He has played on the most difficult situation and bailed out his team out of trouble. The Allrounder have done a pretty good job as or when the team required. They need to bring their A game and take the revenge of 2015 world cup final defeat.
Probable XI: Martin Guptill, Colin Munro/ Henry Nicholls, Kane Williamson (c), Ross Taylor, Tom Latham (wk), James Neesham, Colin de Grandhomme, Mitchell Santner, Matt Henry, Lockie Ferguson, Trent Boult
