Pitch Condition:

Players can get sucked in by the short boundaries and scores have tended to be lower, Grant Elliott said of Eden Park, earlier this week. The surface is rarely anything but true, but offers encouragement through pace and bounce - a facet both teams possess. McCullum expected less swing than the Australia match as conditions are not as humid. Each side also has a quality spinner, too, should it grip.The forecast is a little mixed, but the occasional shower seems to the worst that could happen.

Match Stats:

Trent Boult needs two wickets to become New Zealand's leading bowler at a World Cup, overtaking Geoff Allott's 21 victims in 1999

Hashim Amla and AB de Villiers have 40 ODI hundreds between them. The likely New Zealand XI has 34

Corey Anderson needs three wickets for 50 in ODIs. He currently has the fourth-best strike-rate of a bowler with more than 40 ODI wickets

New Zealand's run rate in the mandatory Powerplay overs of 7.54 is easily the best among all teams in this tournament. Australia are next with a rate of 6.16. South Africa are fifth with a run rate of 4.95r.
