Highlights Australia Vs New Zealand, Scorecard, T20 World Cup 2022: NZ thrash Australia by 89 runs
LIVE Blog

The Super 12 stage of the T20 World Cup 2022 begins today with hosts and defending champions Australia taking on New Zealand in the first match at the Sydney Cricket Ground. Both the teams will be eager to get their first points and begin their World Cup on a positive note. There is one trouble though. The weather does not look the best at the moment. There is a chance of 80 percent precipitation in Sydney today. That meas the first match of the Super 12s may get washed out or at best, we may get to see a rain-curtailed match. 

Finch's Australia begin as favourites in the match with New Zealand needed to solve many questions. First one is the fitness of Daryl Mitchell. He is an important member of the Black Caps side and his finger injury right before the World Cup has messed up their plans. Secondaly, New Zealand need to up their batting game. Especially captain Kane Williamson who has had struggles with the bat. He has looked sub par so far and his issues with elbow have not been solved yet it seems. 

Australia, on the other hand, are hosts and they have an all-round team. Chances are that Cameron Green who received a late call up to replace Josh Inglis will play and Steve Smith may miss out.

What an end to the innings as Devon Conway's 92 and late blitz by Neesham takes New Zealand to 200 for 3 at the end of 20 overs after being asked to bat first by Aaron Finch.

Conway moves to 89. One over to go. Can he reach his 100 here in the opening game of Super 12 at T20 World Cup? Let's see. New Zealand would be eyeing the 200 as well. That would put them in front seat in this match. 

NZ 186/3 (19)

FIFTY for Devon Conway, his seventh in the T20Is, what a brilliant knock this has been and what a way to bring it up, via a maximum. He is an important player and NZ must be happy to see his in good form to start this tournament.

13:07 PM

12:58 PM

Australia pulling thins back a bit with the wicket of Allen. Williamson has come to the crease and is taking his own time to settle down. He is not in great form and Conway will have to ensure the run-scoring is not affected. This is NZ's highest powerplay score in T20 World Cup. 

NZ 69/1 (6.1) 

12:50 PM

AUS vs NZ LIVE scorecard and Updates

WICKET!

Finn Allen cleaned up by a super yorker from Hazlewood. Allen goes for 42 made off just 16 balls. Fives fours and 3 sixes respectively. What a knock and what a start he has given to Black Caps. Australia take a sigh of relief. Kane Williamson, right handed bat, comes to the crease. 

NZ 56/1 (4.1)

 

 

12:37 PM

What a start this is from New Zealand. Allen smashing Australian bowlers all over the park at SCG. Stonis called in. Allen is already 35 off 13 balls, with 5 boundaries and 2 sixes respectively. They need to stop him and maybe some spin would do for now. 

NZ 48/0 (3.2)

 

12:23 PM

Captains at the toss:

Finch: Going to bowl. There's weather around but we also feel the wicket gets better and better as the game goes on. Everytime you represent Australia you feel pressure. We've always had amazing support. Smith, Agar, Richardson and Green the four players not playing.

Williamson: Would've bowled as well for the same reason. Guys have been working hard and training. No changing the past but for us it's about playing for what's important for our game. Really commit to our plans.

PITCH REPORT!

"It's not as quick as some of the other pitches we see generally in Australia. There has been a lot of rain around and it's been under covers. It feels damp. Might be two-paced," says Isa Guha with the pitch report.

11:32 AM

AUS vs NZ LIVE scorecard and Updates

Concerns for Australia: Steve Smith's lack of form and his low strike rate. Should he start in playing 11 or Green should get a go ahead? Finch's been blowing hot and cold of late and he needs to come good in this World Cup as top order form matters for teams in mega events. 

Concerns for New Zealand: Kane Williamson's own dry run. He has been terribly out of form. Daryl Mitchell's injury. How fit is he? Will he play this game or the games to come? There is no clear picture. New Zealand batting needs to fire.
