WT20: New Zealand set Australia 143 to win in Dharamsala
DHARAMSALA: New Zealand failed to make the most of a strong start and posted a competitive 142-8 against Australia in their World Twenty20 Super 10 stage match in Dharamsala on Friday.
After Kane Williamson (24) won the toss and opted to bat, Martin Guptill (39) and the Kiwi skipper added 61 runs in seven overs to lay the foundation for a big total in the Group Two match.
Australia, who used seven bowlers, bowled and fielded with a lot of discipline, however, to restrict New Zealand to a sub-150 total with Glenn Maxwell and James Faulkner claiming two wickets each.
Usman Khawaja and Shane Watson will open the innings for Australia who left former captain Aaron Finch out of the team.
