Second match of Chappell Hadlee series between Australia and New Zealand got abandoned because of bad outfield. Both sides were really unhappy with the ground drainage system. Even after 4 hours after the scheduled starting time without any rain intervention, there were puddles of water seen in some important fielding positions on ground. The umpires conducted series of inspection in time span of 4 hours. They found the outfield unfit to play, and abandoned the match.
So with second match washed out, third match of the series had eventually become do or die for both sides. Australia will be looking to draw the series, while New Zealand would be looking to wrap the series with 2-0 score line. New Zealand can still breath a sigh of relief as they are leading the series, but Aaron Finch & Co. have to win the last match to successfully defend there title.
Third match of 3-match Chappell Hadlee series is going to be played at Seddon park, Hamilton. In recent years, Seddon park has favored spinners and will be no different this time around.

Expert Views 
Captain & Vice Captain : Marcus Stoinis will lead our team and his deputy will be Travis Head. We selected Stoinis as captain purely based on his performance in the first match. Travis Head has bowled well in middle over and always gets one or more wickets. Added benefit is that he also opens the batting and is in a very good knick barring last match performance.


Batsman: We have picked Kane Williamson, Tom Latham, Aaron Finch, Niel Broom in our squad. Niel Broom is in good form since Bangladesh series. Kane Williamson will be my crucial player. Tom Latham is picked because Martin Guptil is injured. We have sticked with Aaron Finch as he has a point to prove to team selectors and we think he will play more carefully with added responsibility of captaincy. You can opt for Shaun Marsh instead of Aaron Finch, as he was also in good knick gathering two 50+ scores in Perth Scorchers last matches. Matthew wade is injured and New Zealand wicket keeper Blundell will not play. So zero points for them in tomorrow match. ANY SUGGESTION PLEASE COMMENT BELOW.
Allrounder : Two all rounder are already our captain and vice captain. Along with them we have opted for Mitchell Santner as he is good spinning all rounder and also the fact that ground will suit spinners we have opted for him against Jimmy Neesham. Best choice to replace Santner is Jimmy Neesham who is very handy with bat and bowl, but got thrashed in the first match. ANY SUGGESTION PLEASE COMMENT BELOW.
Bowler: Starc is a world class bowler and no one can replace him. Except that we have selected Trent Boult along with Pat Cummins as he is handy with bat too. You can select Lockie Ferguson instead of Pat Cummins as he is good pace bowler. You can also go with 4 bowlers by selecting both bowlers above and dumping Glenn Maxwell. ANY SUGGESTION PLEASE COMMENT BELOW.
Note: Please review the team once more before the start of the match, to get notified of any changes due to injury.
