Victory for either team will see them joining England in the semi-finals and there are no changes to either side. The Australians will be looking for a good very though, as New Zealand could still squeeze through should the Aussies win by a low margin.

Australia were hoping that captain Michael Clarke would have recovered from his injury, but he has been ruled out.

Meanwhile, rain is in the air and we will be keeping a close on the weather throughout the day.
