Thus New Zealand will be extra motivated to win this Trans-Tasman battle. The 36th match of the tournament will be played between Pakistan and Afghanistan in Leeds, while the 37th match will be played between Australia and New Zealand at Lord's In London. In 2015, as a 15-year-old, he was part of the group of net bowlers which helped England prepare for the second Ashes Test against Australia.

Australia has successfully defended a total five times out of five at this tournament.

Khawaja went to the crease in the fifth over, survived two drops and a run out chance to play the anchor role, and was the first wicket in the 50th of Boult's hat trick. Both Australia and New Zealand are considered strong contenders for the title. Aaron Finch's side is in roaring form and would look to continue the momentum at Lord's on Saturday.

After optinting to bat first, Trent Boult trapped Australian captain Aaron Finch (8) in front of the wicket to give the early breakthrough for the Black Caps.

Finch won the toss and chose to bat first in seemingly ideal, sunny conditions at the "home of cricket".

The S&P 500 is headed for its best month since January, rebounding from a rout in May to leave it higher by 3% for the quarter. Advancing issues outnumbered decliners by a 3.10-to-1 ratio on the NYSE and by a 2.81-to-1 ratio on the Nasdaq.

The partnership was halted by Kane Williamson as Carrey was caught at cover by Martin Guptill. New Zealand are on 11 points and have not yet been confirmed of a semis berth.

He dropped Aaron Finch, who went onto score 88 runs, in the second over, then not long afterwards put down an admittedly tough opportunity when Usman Khwaja hit the ball towards him.

Their hopes of securing their passage to the last four vanished during a desperate 30-minute spell that saw Ross Taylor (30), Colin de Grandhomme (0) and Tom Latham (14) dismissed for just seven runs.

The Black Cap opener caught a screamer from Steve Smith fielding at backward square leg in the match against Australia at Lords on Saturday (Sunday NZ time).

Boult became the first New Zealander to take three consecutive wickets in the history of the competition as the fast bowler skittled out Usman Khawaja, Mitchell Starc and Jason Behrendorff.
