Big Blow to the New Zealand Cricket Team as Australia defeated them by five runs

On Saturday, October 28, the Australia cricket team defeated New Zealand by 5 runs in the 2023 World Cup clash. Rachin Ravindra of New Zealand hit his second century of the tournament as the team was attempting to chase down the target of 388 runs set by Australia. Josh Hazlewood strikes twice to send both the New Zealand openers after they provided a brisk start in the chase of 389 runs. Daryl Mitchell and Rachin Ravindra try to build a partnership in the middle.
Australia fired on all cylinders to post a huge total of 388 all-out in 49.2 overs against New Zealand.
Travis Head smashed 109 runs in 67 balls in his first World Cup game and added 175 runs for the opening stand, with David Warner scoring 81 off 65 balls. Glenn Maxwell (41), Jos Inglis (38), and Pat Cummins, who blasted 37 off only 14 balls, also upped the ante towards the end.
Currently, the New Zealand cricket team stands at number 3 on the points table, while Australia is at number 4. The Kiwis have dominated all their opponents so far in the game, while Australia has faced difficulties against the stronger teams. But New Zealand will enter the field with some doubts as they lost their last match against India, while Australia is riding on a wave of hat-trick victories.
