Black Caps' chance to avenge Aussie Cup ODI drubbing

Martin Guptill of New Zealand plays a shot during an ODI match against Pakistan, at Eden Park in Auckland, on January 31, 2016New Zealand this week face Australia in a one-day international for the first time since the Baggy Greens humiliated their trans-Tasman rivals in the World Cup final last March. While the pressure proved too much on that occasion as Brendon McCullum’s men slumped to a seven-wicket loss in Melbourne, this time New Zealand are on home soil and in a rich vein of ODI form. The Black Caps have just beaten Pakistan 2-0 in a three-match series, building on a 3-1 series win over Sri Lanka.
