Another high-octane clash in the ongoing ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 is on cards as two top contenders for the coveted trophy - New Zealand and Australia - are set to square-off at the historic Lord's Cricket Ground here today.

Presently, both Australia and New Zealand are comfortably placed in the points-table. While defending champions Australia is the only team to have booked a semi-final berth, the Kiwis, who are placed third, are a point away from it.

New Zealand vs Australia: Title favourites Kiwis, Oz set to square-off at Lord's

The Kane Williamson-led New Zealand side had the best possible start to the showpiece event as they were unbeaten in their initial six games before going down against Pakistan. It is their bowling attack which has performed in every game but their batting looks a bit average.

Pacer Lockie Ferguson has led their pace attack after bagging 15 wickets from six games. Trent Boult and Colin de Grandhomme have not been amongst wickets, however, they both have handed good support to Ferguson after bowling economically. Boult and Grandhomme have nine and five wickets from six games but they have a decent economy of 4.46 and 4.47, respectively. The trio will once again need to replicate their show against an in-form Australian top-order.

In batting, the Kiwis have heavily relied on skipper Williamson and Ross Taylor to bail them out. In their game against Pakistan, batting-all-rounder James Neesham also gave a glimpse of how handy he can be with the bat.

With 414 runs from five innings, Williamson averages 138 and is at the fifth place in the list of leading run-getters. A lot will depend on him against a lethal Aussie pace attack as their top-order have disappointed so far.

As for Australia, they have shown improvement with every passing game. The Aaron Finch-led side have players who can rescue them out of any tricky situations.

Openers Finch and David Warner have been the Kangaroos' main strength. Both are the two top run-getters in this World Cup. While Warner tops the chart of leading run-getters with 500 runs from seven innings, Finch is just four runs short of him from as many games. As a pair, the duo have given great starts to their side.

The bowling has been fantastic so far as their two pacers -- Mitchell Starc and Pat Cummins -- have been brilliant. Starc has 19 wickets from seven games while Cummins has scalped 11 from as many games.

Jason Behrendorff and Nathan Lyon have further added some extra depth in their bowling. With such match winners, Australia will aim to strengthen their position at the top while the Kiwis will try to forget their dismal show in their last game and get back to the winning mode again.

New Zealand vs Australia: Dream 11 top picks

The New Zealand team looks rather formidable this time. Players such as Lockie Ferguson, Kane Williamson, Ross Taylor are the ones who have take the team to unbeatable victory. In the bowling department, Lockie Ferguson has a great past record and fans expect him to deliver this time. Kane Williamson and Ross Taylors are explosive batters who will give South African bowlers a run for their money.’

Australia, the Kiwi’s biggest rivals are in great form but will still look to put their best foot forward. From the Australian team, you have to pick Glenn Maxwell, Mitchell Starc and Aaron Finch. Maxwell is a great right hand batter who wields a magical bat. Aaron Finch is also a batsman with lots of power in his hands and his partnership with Maxwell is what we’re looking forward to. As for Mitchell Starc, he will surely make the English batters try out every strategy in their books.
