Australia are being led by Aaron Finch in this cricket series. He would be pleased with the win in the first ODI cricket game.
Australia struggled in the ODI format against South Africa in South Africa. They lost all the three games of cricket despite fielding their best side. Now, they would be looking to seal the series in the next ODI.
Our prediction is of the same playing eleven that played the last cricket game.
Here is our prediction of Australia’s playing XI:
- Aaron Finch
- David Warner
- Marnus Labuschagne
- Steven Smith
- Alex Carrey
- DJM Short
- Mitchell Marsh
- Pat Cummins
- Mitchell Starc
- Josh Hazlewood
- Adam Zampa
New Zealand are being led by their regular skipper Kane Williamson in this cricket series. New Zealand lost the first ODI and now have all the work to do in the second ODI to save the series.
However, their recent form has been good. They are coming off a fine series win over India in their own conditions and would be looking to do more of the same in the series against their Tasman rivals.
Our prediction is of the inclusion of the same playing eleven that played the last cricket game.
Here is our prediction of New Zealand’s playing XI:
- MJ Guptill
- Henry Nicholls
- Tom Latham
- Kane Williamson
- James Neesham
- LRPL Taylor
- Colin de Grandhomme
- Mitch Santner
- IS Sodhi
- Lockie Ferguson
- Trent Boult
Expert Prediction: AUS vs NZ
Australia got off to a winning start in the three-match ODI cricket series. They are now leading the series by 1-0 margin. This will be the last ODI cricket series to be played before the ICC ODI league, which is going to be launched in May. That will give more context to the bilateral ODI cricket series just like the newly introduced ICC World Test Championship.
Australia came back to form in the ODI format in their own backyard. They played well on a slow track and scored a competitive total of 258 runs. In the defense, they kept on taking the wickets regularly and never allowed the New Zealand batsmen to settle down. In the end, they won the game by 71 runs.
Mitch Marsh was the hero for Australia in the first ODI cricket game. He made a useful contribution with the bat and then struck thrice to rock New Zealand’s chase.
Both teams are coming into this cricket series with different forms. While Australia lost the ODI cricket series badly against South Africa by a 3-0 margin, New Zealand won the ODI cricket series against India in their own backyard.
New Zealand have not tasted a lot of success in Australian conditions. The recent test series between the two sides was a testimony to that fact. New Zealand were beaten comfortably in the test series by Australia and the former hardly managed to compete. Their task in this series also seems to be a difficult one.
Our prediction is that Australia are once again going to give a commanding performance in the second ODI. They should win the game against the side that is completely struggling to adapt. Australia have won the last two ODIs against New Zealand and both have been with a comfortable margin.
Astrology Prediction: AUS vs NZ
The stars seem to favour Australia in their backyard. New Zealand are almost always deserted by luck when they are in Australia. Hence, our prediction is of yet another win for Australia in this cricket series.
