ICC World Cup 2019 | Australia's 'Dominant' Win Leaves Twitter Impressed

Australia continued their good run in ICC World Cup 2019 beating their neighbours New Zealand by 86 runs in the game at Lord’s, London on Saturday (June 29). After the Australian batsmen put up a fighting total, Mitchell Starc led the way once again finishing with a five-wicket haul.

Earlier, New Zealand had Australia on the mat at 46 for 3 with Lockie Ferguson getting the big wickets of David Warner and Steve Smith by hurrying them with pace.

Usman Khawaja (88) and Alex Carey (71) then ensured Australia got to a fighting total before Trent Boult stole the limelight with a hat-trick in the final over of the innings.

In the chase, it was Jason Behrendorff again who took out the two Kiwi openers and set the tone for his side before Mitchell Starc took down Kane Williamson as usual and the Kiwis never really recovered from the early blows.
