Match Ended   
388 (49.2/50)
383/9 (50.0/50)
Australia beat New Zealand by 5 runs
Right then, we have had a couple of nail-bitters in a row and the World Cup now seems to be kicking into fifth gear. Australia are on a steep rise while New Zealand find themselves on the verge of a dogfight for a semifinal place. A lot of action is still left on this double-header Saturday as the chase is on in the other game. Bangladesh are chasing 230 for victory against Netherlands in Kolkata and you can simply switch tabs and catch our coverage of that game. Cheers!
Pat Cummins, the captain of Australia, says that it was an awesome game. Adds that he had to remember that he was a player and not a spectator in the crowd. Mentions that New Zealand kept coming at them. On Travis Head, he says that he was away for the last five weeks and the intent shown by him and David Warner was pleasing to see. Adds that Head surprised them all with his knock. Reckons that it was a good wicket and they bowled well in patches. Credits Marnus Labuschagne for the way he threw himself around in the field to save runs. Ends by saying that it is great to win four games in a row.
New Zealand's skipper Tom Latham says that it was a fantastic game. Adds that there were ebbs and flows throughout. Shares that Australia caught them on the back foot with the way they batted early on. Feels that it was about taking wickets but at the same time, containing the runs. Reckons that they were there and thereabouts in the game. On Glenn Phillips' bowling, he says that he bowled well under pressure and got wickets at crucial times. On Rachin Ravindra he says that it was one of the better knocks you will see while chasing. Appreciates the support from the crowd in Dharamsala. Ends by saying that they will be up to watch New Zealand play in the Rugby World Cup final and cannot wait to watch the game.
Travis Head is the Player of the Match for his quickfire ton early in the game. He starts by saying that it is nice to be back. Adds that it was good to contribute and get the win. Shares that he had only a couple of hits leading up to the game. States that it was like the World Test Championship final where he had off for 6 or 7 weeks. Reckons that his fielding is something he would like to sharpen in the coming days. On his partnership with David Warner, he says that they play together well and complement each other well. Further adds that they try to be as positive as they can.
The Presentation ceremony...
Earlier in the game, Tom Latham won the toss and opted to bowl first on a track that looked devoid of some grass and paid the price as the opening pair of David Warner and Travis Head put on 175 runs for the first wicket. Travis Head went on to score a stellar ton on his World Cup debut and then quick and useful contributions from the likes of Glenn Maxwell, Josh Inglis and skipper Pat Cummins meant that Australia got close to the 400-run mark. For New Zealand, their main man upfront, Matt Henry had a poor outing with the ball and Lockie Ferguson got injured after bowling a few overs. It was Glenn Phillips who proved to be their best bet with three big wickets and then Trent Boult cleaned up the lower order at the death. Coming to the chase, it was topsy-turvy all the way through but those wickets at the right moments meant, New Zealand had a tailender batting at the other end and they made sure, they saved every single run in the field to seal the win by 5 runs.
New Zealand and heartbreaks is quite the story at World Cups and the trend continues here as well. They had their task cut out with the bat and they gave it a real go but it just wasn't enough. Openers, Devon Conway and Will Young started briskly but got out in succession and then the mantle was taken on by an in-form Devon Conway and young Rachin Ravindra who really got the Kiwis into a position of promise. Mitchell got out after a half-century but Ravindra went all the way to score his second ton in this World Cup. They did lose a few wickets at the wrong time and James Neesham had to pull off a miracle to get them near the finish line but he was undone by some impeccable fielding in the final over, handing New Zealand their second-successive loss.
After putting on a mammoth score of 388 runs on the board, all Australia needed early wickets and after a bit of toiling, they did get two quick wickets. It was Josh Hazlewood with the double-blow but after that, they were put under the pump for a while. They knew, with every wicket they got, the scoreboard pressure would mount on the opposition and Adam Zampa proved to be the star as he picked up three big wickets. Skipper Pat Cummins too changed the game with a couple of smart wickets in the last 10 overs but it got too close for comfort in the end and a couple of sensational fielding efforts in the deep were required for the Aussies to get over the line.
AUSTRALIA ARE ALIVE, THE WORLD CUP IS ALIVE AND ODI CRICKET IS WELL AND TRULY ALIVE! What a finish to the highest-scoring game ever in World Cup history and it is Mitchell Starc and the fielders who hold their nerves right at the death to seal a memorable win.

Mitchell Starc To Lockie Ferguson
Mitchell Starc has done it for Australia! Switches to 'round the wicket and delivers it on a fullish length, outside off, Lockie Ferguson gives himself room but fails to get the elevation and can only hit this one along the ground towards cover. Joy on the faces of Mitchell Starc and the rest of the Aussies. Australia win this thriller by 5 runs!
A hobbling Lockie Ferguson is the last man in. A six will win it for New Zealand, anything else and Australia will take the win.

Mitchell Starc To James Neesham OUT!
OUT! RUN OUT! Body blow for New Zealand! A 'Superman' effort by Josh Inglis to dismiss James Neesham! Mitchell Starc misses his length as he hurls a knee-high full toss, at the batter, James Neesham gets cramped for room and gets hurried as he tries to heave it away. He does not time it well and has no option to return for the second run. Marnus Labuschagne swoops in quickly and releases the throw towards the batting end. Josh Inglis grabs it cleanly and stretches out with his left hand to disturb the woodwork. The replays show that the full-length dive by James Neesham was not enough for him to reach his ground.
Is that a run-out? It looks like James Neesham might be short of his crease and that could be game over for New Zealand. The replays roll in and they show that Josh Inglis did a great job of diving and getting to knock off the bails in time. Neesham's dive didn't save him and the decision of OUT comes up on the big screen.

Mitchell Starc To James Neesham
Sensational save in the deep by Marnus Labuschagne! On a length, slanting in, on middle and leg, James Neesham goes deep in his crease and slogs it towards deep mid-wicket where Marnus Labuschagne throws himself to his left on the boundary and keeps the ball in play. Two runs taken.

Mitchell Starc To James Neesham
Great stop by Glenn Maxwell! Right up there, on off, James Neesham drills it hard down the wicket. Mitchell Starc gets a hand on it in his follow through which reduces the pace of the delivery. Glenn Maxwell at long on, sprints and tumbles to his right to save a couple of runs for his side.

Fullish delivery, angling in, on middle and leg, James Neesham swats this one away and gets it wide of deep mid-wicket for two runs more.

Mitchell Starc To James Neesham
FIVE WIDES! Oh, dear! Mitchell Starc, what have you done? Tries to zone in at the toes, on a fullish length but the angle takes the ball past James Neesham and the ball rears off the footmark to go over the leaping Josh Inglis for a boundary. Bonus runs for New Zealand.

Mitchell Starc To Trent Boult
A direct hit and Trent Boult was gone! Strac charges in from around the wicket and goes on a fullish length, at the stumps, Trent Boult moves leg side and stabs it towards extra cover. He sets off for a single and the ball comes at a good height for Marnus Labuschagne but he fails to hit the target at the non-striker's end.
Right then, 19 needed from 6 balls but Trent Boult will face the first delivery of the final over. Australia will have one less boundary rider for the final over. Can Mitchell Starc defend 18 runs and get his side the win? Or will we see shades of 2015? Let's find out.

Josh Hazlewood To Trent Boult
SIX! A valiant effort but Marnus Labuschagne has stepped on the boundary for a maximum! Josh Hazlewood serves this one full but in the slot, around off, Trent Boult clears his front leg and swings through the line. Marnus Labuschagne at long on, makes the mistake of charging in and has to back track eventually. He completes the catch but fails to release the ball before making contact with the ropes.
Is that a maximum? Marnus Labuschagne's body language certainly suggests that it is. The umpires go upstairs and the replays do show that Labuschagne's back heel was on the ropes just a fraction before he let go of the ball and it will be called a maximum.
Josh Hazlewood (8-0-57-2) is back on to bowl the crucial penultimate over.

Mitchell Starc to continue and he will probably bowl the 48th and the final over. Also, Australia are currently one over behind the required rate and there might be one less fielder on the ropes in the final over.

Excellently bowled from Pat Cummins and New Zealand now need 58 runs to win from the final five overs. Takes pace off again but loops this one up on leg stump, the ball dips a lot on the batter and Matt Henry is unable to get any bat on it. The ball hits the boot and rolls toward backward point as there is a stifles appeal for LBW as well. Nothing doing says the umpire and it will be a dot.

Pat Cummins To Rachin Ravindra OUT!
OUT! CAUGHT! What a masterstroke from the Aussie skipper and that could be a game-clinching wicket right there. Pat Cummins stays over the wicket and takes pace off this one as well, bowling it a touch fuller and pushing it well across the off stump. Rachin Ravindra has to reach out a bit and force the lofted shot but he isn't quite in control and ends up skying it toward wide long off. Marnus Labuschagne settles himself just inside the fence and takes it reverse-cup as Ravindra is left inconsolable. Cummins rejoices and so do the Australia players and rightly so too.

Pat Cummins To James Neesham
Slower and shorter from over the wicket and around leg stump. James Neesham nudges it off his hips behind square leg for a single.
Powerplay 3! Into the final 10 overs we go then and this game is nicely poised. New Zealand need 97 runs to win from 60 balls and the extra man allowed outside the inner ring should help Australia a bit in stemming the flow of boundaries. Let's see how this exciting run chase ends. Pat Cummins (6-0-42-0) brings himself back into the attack.

Glenn Maxwell To Glenn Phillips OUT!
OUT! IN THE AIR AND GONE! They would have wanted Rachin Ravindra but Glenn Maxwell has redeemed himself to account for Glenn Phillips! Tosses this one up, on off and middle, Glenn Phillips shimmies down the track to go down town but he fails to get to the pitch of the ball. He still goes through with the shot and pays the price. Skies it high in the air towards mid off where Marnus Labuschagne back tracks and keeps his eyes on the ball all the way through. He reverse cups it with ease to bring an end to Phillips' innings.

Drinks! Just as the Kiwi skipper departs, the players get a refreshment break and Australia have their noses in front at the moment. Rachin Ravindra has a lot of weight on his young shoulders at the moment but New Zealand still have a few batters who can turn the game on its head. Australia know that a wicket or two here and then after that the scoreboard pressure will almost automatically do its job. Let's see which team comes out ahead at the finish line as Glenn Phillips makes his way out to the middle now.

Pat Cummins To Daryl Mitchell
Continues from over the wicket and bowls it on a shortish length, around off, Daryl Mitchell shuffles a bit and stands tall to keep it out.
Drinks! This has been a brisk start to the run chase by New Zealand and they are right in it. Josh Hazlewood's double-blow though means that Australia can build on it and pick up more wickets in the middle overs to take control of the game.  There's still a long way to go but this could turn out to be a very close game.
