Some of the world’s most exciting players will be on display at the home of cricket when Australia and New Zealand resume hostilities this weekend.
Both sides currently sit inside the top four in Cricket World Cup outright betting, with the Aussies joint-favourites to win it all.
Aaron Finch’s men have already qualified for the semi-finals after winning six of their seven matches, including a big win over England last time out.
New Zealand was travelling very nicely with five consecutive wins before a shock loss to Pakistan shuffled the standings.
While the Aussies are in fine form, the Kiwis will be looking to get back onto the winners’ list at Lord’s this Saturday.
Australia vs New Zealand top runscorer betting
Steve Smith @ $5.50 with Sportsbet
Smith is a vital cog in the batting order for Australia and handles the pressure better than anyone. When Usman Khawaja comes in and goes out within five overs, Smith will be there to mop up any mess left behind. He has been good without setting the world on fire, but we think now is the time for the former captain to make three figures.
Kane Williamson @ $3.40
It is with good reason at Williamson is regarded as one of the great leaders in world cricket. When the openers were unable to make a single run against the West Indies, the Kiwi captain spared their blushes with a match-turning 148. Williamson is a player who can bat an entire innings, so the Aussies will prize his wicket most of all.
Australia vs New Zealand top wicket-taker tips
Nathan Lyon @ $5 with Sportsbet
The crafty spinner received his first taste of CWC 2019 a few nights ago against England, where he bowled well without taking a wicket. The pitch at Lord’s was suited for pace due to rain earlier in the day, but if the weather is dry this time around, Lyon will make his mark.
Lockie Ferguson @ $4.33
The quick from New Zealand has been a very handy option coming out of the first powerplay. Ferguson is skilled enough to force a move from the batsman, which can often result in a big haul of wickets. We think Khawaja will not be able to handle Ferguson’s bouncers.

The capitulation that New Zealand suffered against Pakistan was morale-breaking. The Aussies will pounce on this opportunity to rub salt into their neighbours’ wounds.
