Hagley Oval, Christchurch’s pitch, has been a bit drier than other pitches in New Zealand that have more moisture. The batting second side wins most of the matches played here, and pace bowlers do have the upper hand here, but the spinner will also have something from the pitch in the later half of the match.

Team Preview Of Australia

Australia will might have few changes in their side for the next match against New Zealand but the same team can be played in the next match too because they got the good result. Marnus Labuschagne has been struggling a lot, and even in the last match, he scored only one run in two innings, which clearly shows his struggle.

Important players for the Australia Team in the match against New Zealand

1- Steven Smith will be sticking with his new role as an opener in the test match against New Zealand, against whom he has an amazing average of 58.23 in eight matches. He is one of the greatest Test batters in the world right now.

2- Cameron Green was the player of the match, scoring 208 runs, which was way more than Glenn Phillips, who scored 72 runs, making him 2nd highest run scorer. He picked up one wicket and had 174 runs innings, which saved them.

3- Nathon Lyon was sensational in the last match against New Zealand and should be given the player of the match. He picked up 10 wickets and scored 46 runs, the 7th highest run by a player in the last match.

Team Preview New Zealand

New Zealand needs to buckle themselves, as they let it loose in the last match, but this time, they must step up as a team.

Ben Sears will get his debut cap in the next match in place of Will O’Rourke, who gave an average performance in the last match.

2- Daryl Mitchell is one of the most improved players in the Blackcaps and can be the main player for them in the next match with his batting skills. He averages 51.53 in 22 test matches, scoring 1546 runs.

3- Rachin Ravindra is one of the world’s youngest top talents and an emerging player in the World Cup. He also scored a double century against South Africa, and in five matches, he has already scored 374 runs with 9 wickets to give his team more support as an all-rounder.
