After a thrashing start by the New Zealand opener Martin Guptill, Australia has managed to get back in the game taking three quick wickets. New Zeland had the idea start but they at this moment are not capitalizing on it.
New Zealand is playing their second game of the World T20 against the Australians and at this moment, they are 81 for the loss of three wickets. The pitch looks good for batting and the way Guptill started hammering the ball right at the start of the innings proved it a batting deck.
Guptill smashed a series of sixes and fours and Australia was in complete pressure at that time. But once Guptill was back in the pavilion, Australia managed to take his partner Williamson as well ad soon after Anderson went caught as well.
To challenge the batting line of Australia on this deck, New Zealand will have to make a strong total. The Australian batting is in form and some of their players are pretty dangerous in this short format cricket. Australia at this moment is trying their best to run through their overs pretty quickly.Taylor and Munro will the key for New Zealand at this stage. They both can hit the ball hard and have the ability to counter good balls as well. As for Guptill, his innings was pretty special. He was clean in all the shots he hit apart from the last one. He smoked three huge sixes in one over of Agar. He was hard down the ground against fast bowlers. So everything was special from him today.
