Hello and welcome turgid are still in Birmingham for the second group
match 2017 ICC. Today we see a replay of the World Cup final in
2015, two years ago was Australia becoming world champions in front of
the home crowd in Melbourne. Can they repeated the feat today.
England chased down 300 runs, a championship record to beat
Bangladesh. Will we see similar batting aggression? England are
sitting on top of group a. A win won't guarantee modification to the
knockout round but a loss will make it very difficult.
The sea danger man is David Warner, he has scored almost a quarter of
Australia's run since the work of victory, Mitchell Starc is welcome
back to a pace attack with plenty of firepower. One problem facing Kane
Williamson is filling in the enormous hole left by Brendon
McCullum, if he is looking for runs then he might not have two search
further than its opening pair, Luke Ronchi is in great form and Martin
Guptill averages 62 in ODI cricket. New Zealand won the toss and elected
to bat on a good batting surface on a venue that has high-scoring games.
Luke Ronchi at the top of the order shows that the Black Caps are being
aggressive. That's join the action. Quite a predictable start. Underway,
Martin Guptill, at least two. Should push the three runs. They will get
through pretty easily. Tucked away beautifully the Martin Guptill. You
can see there he just waited the Hazlewood to get it straight to him.
Mitchell Starc just getting it a bit straight, slide overcorrection
there. That has pushed a bit down the leg and has clipped right to the
middle of bat. Game. Thrashed through the off-side
by Hazlewood. Crunched from Martin Guptill to finish the second over.
14 without loss. Luke Ronchi gets his first boundary.
Just a push, will run away. David Warner. He got there, it may be
surprised of it. The momentum dragged the ball back over into the
Bantry I think. You will go a long way to see a better shot than this,
good delivery from Hazlewood. Gupta moves onto the front foot, just
punch down the ground. Over the top. Enough of it. That is the power that
he does possess. 29 without loss. Gets that through. Perfect timing
from Martin Guptill. We have seen a few good shots this morning. That is
far and away the best, fall again yes, a bit of wit is on offer, look
at this stride, very steady with his head. One simple movement and a
simple swing of the bat. Looks in good touched me. -- touch to me.
Another straight one and another Bantry from Martin moves. -- from
Martin Guptill and hardly moves. Cross seam from Mitchell Starc,
hitting the middle of the back and that is all you have to do on these
outfields, some good timing. Gone. Just a bit of soon, whether it
bounced a bit off the cross delivery but it was a leading edge. The big
breakthrough the Hazlewood and Australia. Maybe bounced a fraction
more. Guptill closed the face of the back, simple catch to Max Waller
backward point. Guptill is on its way. New Zealand now 1-40. Kane
Williamson. The New Zealand skipper, 145 not out against South Africa in
South Africa. A great record. Cummins, in he comes. Williamson
goes. Not perfectly timed that he will pick up his first boundary. A
bit risky, a thick outside edge, nice and full, held its line-up.
Luke Ronchi whips that away. It would just make it into the
boundary. 50 comes up the New Zealand. A good crowd, a bit
overcast. Short and put away, spanked to the boundary. The
boundary to finish the over. Cummins in a little bit... Gives himself a
little bit of room, such a clean strike of the ball and that has gone
a long way back, excellent shot. He has given himself a slight bit of
room. I thought he might look to go a bit off the side, that has gone
all the way. Outstanding. That was a bit like one of your shots there.
The lots more poised than me. A big mix-up here. He's going to be
run out turf. They nearly made a mess of it. It's looks like Luke
Ronchi just gave up. He got away with it. Missed the stumps. Matthew
Wade has missed the stumps are, what an opportunity, shoulder hit the
stumps and the ball is in his hand. The ball is in the hand, he missed
that, no lights on the stumps and then the shoulder hit the stumps and
by that time Luke Ronchi is back in his crews and there is the
confirmation of not out. Pretty sure it was this tournament a
few years ago on the same ground, the same two teams, getting through
a similar amount of overs perhaps even more unfortunately the game --
unfortunately the game was called off. That hope it is just a passing
shower. The players may only be off for a short time. Both teams would
be very relaxed, they would just be taking Starc and waiting for the
rain. The good starts, 67-1. Mitchell Starc was pretty good.
Cummins went after him though, only bowed to overs,.
So what have we lost with that bit of rain we have had what that
Hatchie means for the situation of the game, the match has been reduced
so we have only lost four overs per side, as far as the bowlers go we
know it is a maximum of ten but at the moment only one bowler can
Bolton and the others nine. Shut down the ground, excellent once
again. Luke Ronchi punching it down the ground,. A lovely stroke off the
bat. He is off again, 30 of 23 now. An outstanding shots, we know how
dynamic and dangerous he is off-again, 30 of 23 now. An
outstanding shots, we know how dynamic and dangerous years. -- he
is. May have just beaten Mitchell Starc. He has, the rain has slowed
the outfield. Well field, still very quick down there and it is another
boundary. Looking extremely dangerous. Here we go, has it got
enough on this? Yes he has. He is on a mission here. Just the way this
has pace and bounce, the wait goes on the leg side. Free your arms and
if you can catch anything on it it takes. This is a good pitch. Come
and stratify him thereto. -- Cummins try to follow him thereto. Just
over. That is the 50 partnership, 42 deliveries and when Luke Ronchi gets
in this form his heart to stop, he just keeps going. Slash. That be the
Bantry up the 50. His first one in 2.5 years for New Zealand. Well
played thereby Luke Ronchi. Seven fours and two sixes, just for New
Zealand needed. For a brief moment Cummins thought
he was in for a shout, that brings up 100 offer 14.1 overs and they
have made a wonderful foundation. He is the sort of player that when he
gets going so dangerous. And he does it again and pulls it off. Gives
himself some room and opens up the off-side and Carter to recover. --
carves it. That is probably as hard as any of the strokes his plate,
gave himself some room and we saw that, that's why he went on the
on-side, he really wanted the full delivery. He was opening up to get
it through extra cover, leaving it a bit squarer than that. It's put
down, Mitchell Starc. That was the opportunity to pick up the second
wicket, just grabbed on the leg side by Luke Ronchi. It wasn't that
difficult of a chance. There have been moments in the fielding display
from Australia where it has been a bit down or stop it needs to be
taken out when you have a guy firelight Luke Ronchi is. Picking
boundaries out well. Cummins has the pace, I just wonder if there is
enough variation at this stage. They might just go back into their shell
run over to some people but not Ronchi he played a slog there.
Across the seam again. It seems like the surfaces is a bit better after
the rain break, maybe some waste your, the timing has been superb. --
may be some moisture. Straight over his head and a wonderful over, 15
from it. Absolutely brilliant, the confidence is growing. This is as
good as anything we have seen. Down the ground. So often the best place
to go. Pat Cummins doesn't know what to do.
Straight to Maxwell. Try to open about-face carving through the
off-side but this time he picks out the fielder.
Luke Ronchi getting that one behind square. He needs more elevation to
get it back to the turn. It was that outside edge. An important position.
Where a terrific innings comes to an end. It is 65. Next man to the
crease, Ross Taylor. A really important wicket this, for
Australia. His career average is 44. And that is a beautiful shot. He
will be a little bit disappointed, he wanted to try and bring the slip
into play, but all he did was meet the beautiful bat face of Ross
Taylor. It is a juicy half volley, exactly what you need when you are
trying to get something like that out of the middle. Really good shape
and that will make Taylor feel good and that is what you need sometimes,
you get that one away and feel good at the crease. Maxwell.
He has been in the action a lot today at backward point. This one he
does not get away with, short and wide, ?1 and a boundary for Taylor.
It a brutal strike. He keeps looking at that front foot area, frustration
for the skipper. He had to set a field for this sort of delivery, you
just throw the battle at that and that is exactly what he had done.
Hazlewood to continue. A little bit of width, will it be a boundary?
Good start. Wonderful shot by Ross Taylor. Regarded it behind square. A
much wanted boundary for the New Zealand team. Lovely shot. It is
weighted, timed it beautifully. Little bit too much on it for the
man down at third man. Taylor. Finds the gap. Pretty good. They will come
back for two. Seven runs from the over, 145-2.
That is a little bit sloppy there from John Hastings. Another two to
one -- Williamson. In the air, but in the gap. He will run across the
turf for four. Williamson. A little bit of pressure brought that shot
out. It was not quite straight. Williamson, premeditated slog sweep.
The gap and it could go all the way and it does, nicely played, Ross
Taylor. Boundary off the last ball. 106 26-2. -- 166-2. Williamson
swings hard way over mid-wicket. Gone all the way for six. When the
pressure starts to build up, they pick their gap and buying. Beautiful
slog sweep from Williamson. Did not over hit it, kept very still. Right
into the gap. That is pulled away to the leg side. Travis Head. Make sure
it is just two. I think we have got our answer, enough is enough.
Williamson looking to Hoyt it over Leeds -- leg side. He plays that
superbly over at deep mid-wicket. A much wanted boundary for New
Zealand. Outstanding bit of cricket from King Williamson, realised that
he was looking to tighten it up on the leg side. It will not be long
until Taylor is... That is nasty play. It will make its way to the
boundary, beautifully done. Taylor. Outstanding piece of work from
Taylor, proved to be an elegant argument for the Kiwis. Stepping
across the stumps, those powerful wrists, picks a gap beautifully.
There are a lot of gaps out there and we note that this is quick.
Unfortunately, he cannot. It is met by a fantastic shot by Williamson.
He still managed to open up the other side. 199-2. On pace delivery
from John Hastings and he has been written. A partnership of 82 from 99
deliveries from these two. There has been some good running between the
wickets, a lot of singles being ticked up. -- being picked up. That
is beautifully played. He was looking for at the York. It did not
manage to do it. Slipped away beautifully and I am sure they will
go upstairs to assess if there was contact with the advertising
fission. He chased long and chased hard and put in the dive. I am not
sure it is quite good enough to stop it from hitting the advertising but
it is an excellent effort. I think that is so. You know it. He will be
pretty happy with that. It is a boundary. Change of angle, comes
from wide, trying to get it in. Full delivery, searching for the yorker.
Strong to the leg side, Taylor. They are starting to cut loose. Up and
over, and a little bit of work, played beautifully, he wants to get
onto the off-side. Masterful bit of batting there from Williamson. He
has just got it slightly wrong again, John Hastings. Trying to take
the pays off too much width and to a player of Williamson's ability, it
looks like he is starting to do it. He has got third man at backward
point into the circles. He is not offering up to much width. Looking
to take as much pays off it. He continues, sweeps that in front of
the square. He is really picking up momentum for New Zealand. Some
brilliance. The partnership moves to 98 between them. Looking to be very
aggressive from here on M. They have shown that with wickets in hand. If
you're thinking of making a cup of tea, just sit down and enjoy the
next few overs. Make sure you get it done between overs. A difficult
period for Australia and they have to try and hold their nerve. When he
decides to go, he usually goes leg side but all he can do is pop it up
into the air and Australia have got their wicket and their attacking
strategy of keeping the fielders inside the circle has worked a
trick. Take a bow, John Hastings, you have persevered, taken the cross
seam delivery, Taylor tries to hit to his favoured area and bounces a
little bit. That is the safe edge. He goes for a New Zealand are 216-3.
That is beautifully played, he has used the pace. Broome coming back
for the third. It was not that strong. It was comfortable in the
end. Good running as well from the Kiwis. Each bat-macro makes a
fantastic effort and nice bit of work from Travis Head on the
boundary. Gives himself room, but just moved away to leg side and
changes it beautifully. He is using that leg cutter. This time, equal to
the task. We saw him go across the stumps, he went the other way and
John Hastings tried to follow him and unfortunately, he dragged it
down, pretty comfortably. Poor shot from Williamson, there. Big shot,
has he got enough? It does. If Travis Head had gone back on the
boundary he might have had half a chance. It has gone the whole way.
That ends the over with a boundary. It is a big hit, but at one stage he
would have been thinking, I have not got enough on it. Favoured area for
Neil Broom is down that long off. Using his feet in that direction.
Got that away mid-wicket, some work to do and he cannot get there.
Moises Henriques. Neil Broom with two and then a four. Good flat back
push shot from Neil Broom. Cross seam again. Hits it early and very
straight. Leaving it outstretched, Moises Henriques at long-on.
Williamson does very well. Brilliant. Another boundary. Very
good start to this over. 250 comes up for New Zealand.
It is a class shot, no doubt about that. We have seen this game change
over the past few years. There it is, 104 King Williamson.
New Zealand skipper is backed it up today, his ninth one-day
international hundred and has brushed against Australia. 96
deliveries. Eight fours, three sixes, raise your bat, King
Williamson, it has been a great innings. Responsible, very smart,
but also very classy. It is a single. Good work. Very good work
from Pat Cummins. Moises Henriques first of all and then Pat Cummins. I
think this is close again. Williamson hesitated. The ball is
coming in. Yes. Clearly out. I would like you to load out, please. And
through to two. There it is. Good work, excellent from Pat Cummins and
Moises Henriques as well. Brilliant hundred but straightaway, New
Zealand skipper has to depart. 100 off 97. Swung away, not well enough,
though. Not well enough at all and I think that is Glen Maxwell out at
mid-wicket, comfortably underneath it, good catch from him. It was high
and long out of the deep mid-wicket boundary. Not many safer hands in
cricket than Glen Maxwell. Up and under from Neil Broom. Right in the
middle of the pouch, safely taken. Neil Broom is on his way for 14. New
Zealand lose their faith. All the way. That is what place does
do, even a top edge carries. Anderson picks up six. Spot-on. A
top edge Bonelli 90 miles an hour. That will carry a six on most rounds
in the world. That had enough carry on it, a well directed top edge. 69
metres. Big enough. Looking at the head position of Anderson who was
sure where that went up at noon he got enough bat on it. Who knew it
would be fall but clocked it straight in the air. Taking in the
end. Made its look quite difficult. Another one goes. They could catch
in the end, looked like he would slightly misjudge it. A good catch
that went very high. They bit of backspin as well. -- a bit. Looking
to free up the off-side. Anderson goes at a score of eight. 267-6.
Good bowling. A bit of pressure on the batsmen, full hard down the
ground and picked him out. David Warner at long-on, wide and full
from Hazelwood. The bottom edge of the bat, David Warner takes a very
safe catch. Another one no timing. Looking in the wrong direction you
would say from where the ball was. David Warner very good in that
field, comfortable for him, Neesham gone now.
Milne, that is four. Beautiful shots. A soft delivery for a first
ball, folk, almost a bit of a nothing ball and a classic shot,
just for New Zealand needed at this stage. A lot of ability Milne, we
spoke about the fact he is no mug with the bat that I agree, just make
him Stephane Erlich, third man and fine leg. The full toss down the leg
side. A bit of bat on that Mitchell Sampson. Executed the yorkers well.
Deep forward square leg it on. Short. Well played Adam Milne.
Looked at the field and knew what was coming. Well done. Good call.
Spot on there. Great position, inside the line of the ball, the
weight on the front foot, get it right into the gap. A couple of nice
shots so far. I don't mind the field but what I think you should do is
jam those yorkers leg stump. If you can jam those yorkers in and bring
the big side of the ground and to play. That is out. Is it Maxwell
again? Make that four catches. He absolutely smoked about. Back of the
length again and pretty much a textbook shots, right at the middle
of the bat, flat and hard and there is the man out there. No worse
feeling knowing it is going straight to the man on the fence. Hazelwood
gets another one. New Zealand lose another one, 291-8.
Santner on strike. Four wickets for Hazelwood, make it five, yes please.
Couldn't get it over the top of Steve Smith, Hazelwood has gone. New
Zealand have only got one left. Skipper took that like a training
world, very casually put the weight onto his right foot, up egos, great
hands Steve Smith. Very good feel. Again not a bad shots from Mitchell
Sapna who throws his head back. Just needed some elevation --, nine down
now. Trent Boult, 5-52 now, one ball remaining the Hazelwood.
Snipped and gone. Three in four balls for Hazelwood, picks up 6-52.
Absolutely outstanding. At the back end of the innings it has been all
Australia. 291 they have bowled New Zealand out for. A huge comeback, to
bowl New Zealand out in 45 overs, great effort.
6-52, the ninth best Australian figures. In ODI International
cricket, outstanding, picked up Trent Boult and New Zealand bowled
inside the 40 five overs which they will be very disappointed with. We
mention that Australia will go into the dressing room is feeling very
good about the back ten overs off the innings. Coming back into the
game very strongly indeed. STUDIO: A disappointing finish,
after being 254-3 day finished 291 all out. After 45 of the 46 overs
available after the rain delay, and impressive 65 from Luke Ronchi said
the Kiwis on their way followed by a century from Kane Williamson. After
that New Zealand last seven wickets for 37 runs in 5.5 overs, the
collapse they may come to regret. Has come along recently so nice to
chance my arm a bit more and I got lucky a few times, nice to get a few
in the middle as well. How did the surface play? Slower than I thought,
I guess excuse me, it kicked a little bit every now and then but a
pretty good surface. Did it get better after the rain? It felt
similar, Kane made it look easy batting brilliantly but hopefully
with the score we can defend that and ball well. Lost momentum in the
back there, with this score you would probably come sure you can
defend the? Yes a lot of runs to get and we think we can defend that, if
we bowl the way we bowl then we have chance. After struggling to find the
line and length of the beginning of the day the Aussie pace attack
recovered with skill and accuracy, a special mention goes to Josh
Hazelwood, his figures of 6-52 off of nine overs including a
devastating final over with three wickets in just four balls. Brain
Phenergan after the lunch break is shortening the innings. They now
have a revised Duckworth-Lewis total of 235 to win from 33 overs. Warner
and Finch opened the batting for Australia.
Here we go. We have seen this pitch so far today. Fine, a fraction
straight. David Warner he can punish you. It doesn't have to be that bad
of a bull to punish you. Up from Warner, an uppercut and it has gone
about 15 rows back. Just a little bit of the width that you just want
to give David Warner. Such a good striker of the ball. An incredible
shot, absolutely incredible, he has made it look like wine you would
play every phenomenal cricket. He wanted a piece and he's got it.
That's the wicket New Zealand wanted, well done Trent Boult, David
Warner really wanted a big piece and he wasn't good for Trent Boult and
he strikes. David Warner is seething, he came down the wicket,
try to be aggressive and the ball has held its line and he has a thick
outside edge, through to Luke Ronchi Hugh is delighted, that is a huge
blow for the Kiwis. The big wicket they wanted, David Warner was the
danger man and they got him. He has gone for 18 and Australia now 27-1.
Steve Smith, one of the best players in the world, it is also his
birthday, he will be looking for a wonderful birthday present with a
victory. What a shot. All class this guy. He makes runs no matter what
clothing, what team, whoever he plays for he just is a run machine.
35-1. In the air and gone. Finch could not get himself going. He
spoons the simplest catch to short mid-wicket. Australia lose their
second and you have the Kiwis, they are jumping for joy. 80 miles an
hour from Milne, he has gotten it up there, bounced a little bit jumps
back in, too easy for Ross Taylor. Finch never looked like he was in a
great position. The parts and goes for eight. 35-2. -- deep parts.
That's a good strike. Hit it hard, not to short either. Has gotten
himself into a nice position their Henriques, that is the best Reiki is
played. Back to slip, a change and bounces past slip. Streaky again.
Someone mentioned his previous high school was 12, he is now 18. New
territory and that should be out. It is. He has gone, a streaky innings,
a few good strokes in it but now the pressure is right on the Aussies. An
inside edge on to the pad, Milne had to keep his eye on the ball, I say
little but it was fairly large back to the pad, straight up into the
air, Milne knew straightaway. The Kiwis knew straightaway. As
Henriques made his way to the pavilion he was followed by the New
Zealand team as heavy rain descended just before six. Unfortunately the
rain persisted in the match was abandoned half an hour later.
Frustrating for the Kiwis as they look to have the stranglehold. David
Warner was dismissed early quickly followed by Aaron Finch. Henriques
and comfortable innings came to an end as heavy rain fell living
Australians 53-3 off of nine. The New Zealand bowlers were dialled in.
Milne 9-2 offers to overs, Southee and Boult also dangerous. There we
have it, New Zealand score 291 from 45 overs bowled out of the process.
That didn't look enough, three quick wickets but the Black Cats in the
driving seat before rain stopped play. We have a two captaincy after
a disappointing end to the game. Did you get away with one of the day? We
had a few batters left in the shed but plenty of work to do. If I
wanted to be in someone else's shoes I would want to be in their shoes, I
put the played really well for the length of the game that it went,
came had an exceptional earnings and Martin Guptill and Luke Ronchi up
top brass standing as well. The bowling towards the end, probably on
track and you pull it back tonight won his? I thought our stop was
ordinary, they played well and put us under pressure but we gave a few
freebies away early on and let ourselves go a little bit. Nice from
the river to pull it back at an ordinary stars. Came festival good
batting today against Wigan attack. -- came Festival. Australia are
always tough to beat, I thought from our perspective, the guys stuck at
it well, with the bat it would've been nice to capitalise up it was
then that you know with guys coming out against an attack like Australia
it's not easy so still I thought we had a good score, if scrapped well
and we bowled well we could make life difficult. Chasing with a
modified score often helps the chasing team, you got those wickets
so mate have been one away and you have three games into the semis and
one is gone? Yes a lot of cricket left in this game as Steve said.
They have depth in their batting line-up. With Lewis it doesn't help
the team that is fielding second so the major T20 cricket, that has
fallen to the ODI format these days. Guys back themselves to chase
anything. We knew there was a lot of work to do but the boys were bowling
well. Interesting to see how the game would unfold if we could play
the duration. We can only control how we came out and play today and
that was good. England play next on the 6th of June
against New Zealand. Highlights from Cardiff on BBC Two at 11:20pm but we

Highlights from the ICC Champions Trophy match between antipodean rivals Australia and New Zealand from Edgbaston, Birmingham. Australia won the tournament in 2006 and 2009, but relinquished their title in disappointing style in 2013 when they went out in the group stage. New Zealand's solitary triumph came back in 2000.
