New Zealand Tour of Australia 2022: Australia vs New Zealand – 1st ODI Preview and Updates

While New Zealand remains the best team in the world, they haven’t faced much competition this year. Other than the West Indies, who aren’t playing well in ODIs right now, the Blackcaps have played ODIs in 2022 against the Netherlands, Ireland, and Scotland.

Australia, on the other hand, will enter this series fresh off a historic loss to Zimbabwe in the final match of the home series. So far, the hosts haven’t had a great year in ODIs. Prior to the home series against Zimbabwe, Australia toured Sri Lanka for a 5-match One-Day International series, which they lost 3-2. Prior to that, Pakistan defeated Australia 2-1 in an ODI series.

Australia’s best one-day players are all in the squad for the New Zealand series, and they will be expected to perform admirably. The statistics are stacked against the visitors, with Australia having not lost an ODI to New Zealand at home since 2009.

The 1st ODI between Australia vs New Zealand will take place on September 6th, 2022 at Cazaly’s Stadium in Cairns.

Match Details to Note

Match: Australia vs New Zealand, 1st ODI, New Zealand Tour of Australia 2022

Date: September 6, 2022 (Tuesday)                                                 

Time: 9:50 AM IST

Venue: Cazaly’s Stadium, Cairns

Australia (Match Odds – 1.47):


Australia will be looking to avenge their loss to Zimbabwe in the third and final ODI in Townsville. On a low-scoring pitch at Tony Ireland Stadium, the hosts were bowled out for 141 runs batting first.

The batting struggles were evident from the first ODI, and it was only a matter of time before the Aussies’ batting order collapsed for a low total if they were put to bat first. Things don’t look good for Australia’s batting as they face trans-Tasman rivals New Zealand at home.

This three-match ODI series will also be played entirely in Cairns. Cazaly’s stadium has only hosted two One-Day Internationals (ODIs), both of which were low-scoring affairs.

Australia’s best bowlers, including Zampa, Hazlewood, and Starc, can not only be economical but also provide timely breakthroughs. Nonetheless, the opposition will be fielding a full-strength squad that includes the best Blackcaps bowling unit.

Warner and Finch will play important roles as openers, while Smith and Carey are reliable middle-order batsmen who can form significant partnerships.

Full Squad:

Aaron Finch (c), Sean Abbott, Ashton Agar, Alex Carey, Cameron Green, Josh Hazlewood, Marnus Labuschagne, Mitchell Marsh, Glenn Maxwell, Steven Smith, Mitchell Starc, Marcus Stoinis, David Warner, Adam Zampa

New Zealand (Match Odds – 2.70):


Kane Williamson will be eager to end New Zealand’s losing streak in Australia. New Zealand has lost seven of their eight ODIs in Australia, with one game ending in a tie.

The New Zealand batting lineup will face the world’s second-best ranked ODI bowler, Josh Hazlewood. Along with Williamson, the key players in the New Zealand batting lineup will be Martin Guptill, Devon Conway, and Tom Latham.

Latham led the Blackcaps to a series win in their last ODI series without Williamson. Top performances for New Zealand came from Finn Allen at number one and Daryl Mitchell at number five.

The batting order is quite deep, with Glenn Phillips and James Neesham batting at 7 and 8, respectively, and bowling all-rounder Mitchell Santner batting at 9. This means that even if the batting collapses early on, New Zealand has a plethora of impact batsmen in the lineup to bring them back into the game.

While there are many all-rounder and wicket-keeper batsmen in the squad, the Blackcaps also have the best-ranked ODI bowler in the world along with Tim Southee and Lockie Ferguson.

Full Squad:

Kane Williamson (c), Finn Allen, Trent Boult, Michael Bracewell, Devon Conway, Lockie Ferguson, Martin Guptill, Matt Henry, Tom Latham, Daryl Mitchell, James Neesham, Glenn Phillips, Mitchell Santner, Ben Sears, Tim Southee

Australia vs New Zealand Toss Prediction

Because the average first innings score at this venue is less than 200, the team that wins the toss will most likely choose to bowl first. The weather will also be favorable to the bowlers, and a few early breakthroughs will put the bowling team ahead of the game.

Australia vs New Zealand Pitch Report

The Cazaly’s stadium in Cairns, Australia, will host this and the remaining ODIs in this series. In ODIs, the average first innings total at this venue is 126 runs. Teams that bowl first have won both ODIs played here.

Tuesday’s weather in Cairns is partly cloudy with a high of 27 degrees Celsius. Tim Southee and Boult can benefit from such weather because they can swing the new ball a lot more. There haven’t been many games played at this venue, and the pitch has favored bowlers in the few matches that have taken place.

Australia vs New Zealand Prediction

Both teams appear to have a solid squad that includes some of the best players from both countries. Both teams’ bowling attacks are among the best in the world, so the batters on both sides will face a formidable challenge. The toss will be crucial, and the team that wins the toss will have the advantage. Given their home record against New Zealand, we believe the Aussies have a slight advantage over the visitors.

Australia is the favourite to beat New Zealand at the odds of 1.47.

Bonus Betting Tips

Player of the Match

Australia’s David Warner (8.00) and Glenn Maxwell (10.00) are our picks for Player of the Match. Following them is Aaron Finch (12.00). Aaron Finch continues to struggle to score runs. His low scores were not noticed much during the Zimbabwe series, but Finch will need to find some runs before they start to stand out. Finch is still a good batter, but with the runs not coming in and his defense deteriorating against the moving ball, he has a lot to prove. So can he do that? To know, bet here.
