India's win over West Indies knocked the latter out of the contention leaving the battle for the playoffs hanging four-way between England, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, and Bangladesh. New Zealand, India, and Australia are comfortably sitting in the top half of the table, and their qualification for the playoffs is almost guaranteed. The trans-Tasmanian rivalry is set to resume with Australia taking on New Zealand on 29th June at Lord's Cricket Ground, London. New Zealand faced their first defeat of the tournament wherein they were defeated by Pakistan in a closely fought encounter. Australia, on the other hand, have been in prolific form ever since they lost to India and will be looking to extend their brilliant run in the World Cup.
While the Kiwis haven't been as clinical as they'd have liked in the tournament so far, they have emerged on top in a couple of closely-fought encounters which would have given them an immense amount of confidence.
Although their batting has been doing pretty well in the competition, the lack of big scores from their top-two will be a huge concern for their management going into the business end of the tournament. Colin Munro and Martin Guptill haven't scored much after their first match and will need to get back to their best against a terrific Aussie bowling attack. Having said that, their middle-order and late middle-order has done fantastically well with Kane Williamson and Ross Taylor scoring heaps of runs.
The partnership between Jimmy Neesham and Colin de Grandhomme was a silver-line in the last match, which otherwise was a rather ordinary match for the Kiwis. Their bowling has done well in the tournament with Boult and Ferguson being amongst the wickets. Also, they'd be happy to see Santner back in rhythm in the last match who proved to be a tough candidate to handle for Pakistan.

Australia started their campaign in this tournament on a brilliant note but stumbled thereafter in their encounter against India. However, apart from that, they have done nothing wrong in the tournament and will be looking to extend their run and take the confidence into the playoffs.
Australia have done exceedingly well up in the tournament primarily because of their team effort with their batting doing well and the likes of Starc and Cummins delivering perfectly with the ball. David Warner has been terrific at the top of the order and has looked in superb touch barring a couple of innings.
They bat deep with the likes of Pat Cummins and Mitchell Starc coming late in the order which is a positive thing to have in crunch situations. Considering the way they handled their defeat against India and picked themselves up from there, beating Australia in the upcoming World Cup encounter is not going to be easy, as has always been the case.

With tournament progressing towards its end stage, most of the matches are being played on used surfaces which will bring spinners into picture in the second innings. Both the sides will like to take advantage of the slowness of the surface and the captain winning the toss will be looking to bat first and rack up a big total.

Quite uncharacteristic of what London has been in the series so far, its likely to be bright and sunny here. The temparatures are likely to rise upto 32 degrees and hover around it throughout the day. Also, this is only the second time Lord's is hosting a day-night fixture and both the sides would like to take that into the account. With the scores of 300s being common nowadays, Lord's is considered a moderately high scoring venue with ample assistance for quick bowlers in the early overs. Spinners will have their part to play in the middle overs and the team batting first will be looking to score in excess of 300.

Considering the performances of the two sides in the tournament, the two sides appear to be neck and neck with each other. Having said that, the Kiwis have an apparent problem of their struggling top-order whereas Australia have a top-order with Aaron Finch and David Warner in top-form. Also, the Kangaroos enjoy a better record in World Cups over their neighbors, which might add to the pressure over the Kiwis. Considering that as well as the fact that the Aussies are coming off a decent run in recent matches, we think that they are better placed to emerge on top in the upcoming fixture.
