Meanwhile, Australia lost the toss and made the Kiwis pay for their poor bowling, especially by their gun new-ball bowlers in Trent Boult and Matt Henry. David Warner and Travis Head had smashed 67 inside 6 overs, with the latter bringing up his century only off 60 deliveries.
The likes of Steve Smith and Mitchell Marsh, but fireworks from Glenn Maxwell, Josh Inglis, and Pat Cummins lifted them to a sizeable 388. The Kiwis could've been looking at a 400-run target had Trent Boult not picked up the last 4 wickets for only 1 run.
The Black Caps are coming off a four-wicket defeat against India in Dharamsala, while Australia demolished the Netherlands by 309 runs in their previous fixture.
