Watch Australia vs. New Zealand ICC Cricket World Cup 2015 Live Streaming
Australia and New Zealand renew their cricket rivalry on Saturday in a match that is likely to decide who tops Pool A, and could yet act as a chance to land a psychological blow ahead of a possible rematch in the 2015 World Cup final. The two co-hosts have impressed so far and, regardless of what happens at Eden Park this weekend, look likely to take the top two spots in a group where England and Sri Lanka have already faltered. That would mean being kept apart until the final, should they both make it.
For New Zealand the contest appears to carry particular significance. Long cast in the role of overshadowed neighbors, losing six of their eight matches to Australia in World Cups, New Zealand have reached the last four of one-day cricket’s showpiece event on six occasions but never gone further. But this time, with a talented all-round squad and with the advantage of playing at home, there is a growing sense that they are far more than merely dark horses, and a real contender to lift the trophy next month.
Match time: Saturday, 2 p.m. local time. Friday, 8 p.m. EST.
TV channel: DISH Network, Mediacom and Time Warner Cable subscribers can watch the match via pay per view. More info
