AUS vs NZ Preview: 

  • David Warner, second only to Quinton de Kock in centuries scored, has been a standout performer in this tournament. Amongst the leading run-scorers, he trails only de Kock and Virat Kohli as we approach Match 26. His recent form has been exceptional, with two brilliant innings, and he is eyeing his third consecutive century in the competition. Despite giving the opposition opportunities, he made both Pakistan and the Netherlands pay dearly. Our prediction is that Warner will lead Australia’s run chart on Saturday.
  • Adam Zampa, who finished as the leading wicket-taker in the game against the Netherlands, is on a quest for his fourth consecutive 4-wicket haul. He delivered a compelling performance, even with just 3 overs bowled, dismantling the lower order with his deceptive googly. Our pick for Australia’s top wicket-taker against New Zealand is Adam Zampa.
  • Daryl Mitchell continues to shine for the Black Caps, impressing with another remarkable innings against a formidable Indian bowling attack, amassing 130 runs from 127 balls. This century marks his fourth since April 2023, and he boasts an impressive average of 76.10 in his last 12 innings. Mitchell’s aggressive approach at the start of his innings suggests he will maintain his attacking style in this match. With an ODI career average of 51.72, he is a strong candidate to be New Zealand’s highest run-scorer against Australia.
  • Mitchell Santner, a consistent wicket-taker for New Zealand in the 2023 Cricket World Cup, has yet to go wicketless. As of the latest statistics before Friday’s matches, only Adam Zampa had more wickets in the tournament. Santner has already achieved a 5-wicket haul and maintains an impressive strike rate of 23.83 in the last five matches. He is a sound choice for New Zealand’s top wicket-taker in this showdown.
  • Just three games ago, Adam Zampa was grappling with a crisis of confidence, often facing a barrage of hits. However, he has undergone a remarkable transformation. We recommend betting on him to take over 1.5 wickets in this upcoming match.

Weather & Pitch Report


Dharamsala’s Saturday weather outlook predicts partly cloudy conditions all day. While the evening is expected to bring a significant increase in humidity, it’s worth noting that the match should be completed before this change, and therefore, it is unlikely to have any impact on the game. 

Pitch Report:

The 2023 Cricket World Cup has witnessed closely contested matches at the HPCA Stadium, where the pitch has proven to be less conducive to high-scoring games compared to other venues. A competitive score is expected to be in the vicinity of 300 runs.

Toss Prediction: 

In this tournament, the HPCA Stadium has witnessed an even balance, with two victories for the team batting first and two for the team chasing. While both sides appear confident in their chasing abilities, our anticipation is that the captains, should they win the toss, are likely to opt for fielding first in this upcoming match.

AUS vs NZ Team NEWS: 

 AUS Team News: 

Reports had suggested Travis Head might be ready for the previous game, but he wasn’t quite prepared, leading to Steve Smith and Marnus Labuschagne both scoring half-centuries. Consequently, we anticipate that Head will remain on the bench for this match, while Marcus Stoinis is set to return after recovering from a minor injury.

NZ Team News: 

Captain Kane Williamson is expected to be sidelined for another week or so due to his thumb injury, meaning that Tom Latham will continue to lead the team in this match. While Tim Southee is back and available, it’s worth noting that all the pace bowlers are currently delivering exceptional performances.

Winning Chances: 

An encounter between Australia and New Zealand in a Cricket World Cup is a highly anticipated fixture that captures the attention of fans from various teams, and this occasion is no exception. New Zealand has displayed exceptional cricket throughout the tournament but faced their first loss against India. It’s intriguing to see how they bounce back both with the bat and the ball. Australia, on the other hand, has been elevating their performance and showcased their dominance against the Netherlands in the last match. Our forecast suggests a closely contested game, with moments when New Zealand gains the upper hand, but ultimately, we anticipate an Australian victory.

AUS vs NZ Key Players: 


David Warner 

Despite turning 37 on Friday, the aggressive opener’s determination to achieve centuries at the international level remains undiminished. He has now notched an impressive tally of 48 international centuries for Australia.

Glenn Maxwell 

In the victory over the Netherlands, the all-rounder etched his name in the annals of history by crafting the fastest century in Cricket World Cup history. He was eventually dismissed after amassing 106 runs from a mere 44 balls.

Adam Zampa 

The captain has utilized the spinner brilliantly, confounding numerous lower-order batters who struggle to decipher his variations, cope with his precision, and adapt to his changes in pace.

Pat Cummins 

The captain’s performance has mirrored that of his teammates in the tournament, and in the last game, he delivered remarkable statistics, capturing 1 wicket for just 14 runs from his allotted 4 overs.

New Zealand 

Daryl Mitchell 

The batting all-rounder has emerged as New Zealand’s most accomplished batsman in the past 18 months, consistently proving his mettle in major tournaments. In the last game, he showcased his prowess by striking an impressive nine fours and launching five sixes.

Rachin Ravindra 

The young all-rounder has swiftly made a name for himself on the global cricket stage during this competition. He boasts an impressive average of 72.50 from five innings and is just 10 runs shy of reaching the milestone of 300 runs in the Cricket World Cup 2023.

Mitchell Santner 

The bowling all-rounder sustained his exceptional form in the tournament, delivering the most economical performance among the bowling unit against India and crucially, dismissing the significant wicket of KL Rahul.

Trent Boult 

In the previous game at this venue, the left-arm opening bowler secured just a single wicket. Notably, the dismissal came through a well-executed short ball. Consequently, we might witness him employing this tactic early on in this upcoming fixture.
