New Zealand named unchanged playing XI against Australia

Blackcaps have announced their playing 11 for tomorrow’s big clash against Australia. Earlier it was expecting that Tim Southee may not be a part of team due to injury but Captain Brendon McCullum confirmed today that Tim is fit and will be playing against Australia at Auckland.

New Zealand named unchanged playing 11 against Australia.

Brendon McCullum said, “It was just a ball to the shoulder. I asked him this morning if he got one in the leg as well because he managed to go down, which I couldn’t quite work out. He’s good. He bowled well today. He managed to get through his work, so I would expect him to play. The guys have really stood up over the last little while and performed well. The combinations we have rolled out have worked pretty well as well.”

New Zealand played last match against England before a week ago hence McCullum mentioned that team has been practicing good so far from past 3-4 days and we are looking forward for Saturday’s big match.

McCullum said, “It’s hard on the guys not playing but they are completely committed to the group as well. At some point in this tournament, the guys who haven’t yet had the opportunity to make an impact will get a game, but this game we think this is our best team to go in with.”
