New Zealand look to bring some relief

New Zealand will go into their massive group game against Australia after spending the week trying to cope with the aftermath of the Christchurch earthquake back home. Kiwi skipper Daniel Vettori has expressed his intention of trying to bring some "light relief" to his fellow New Zealanders with a good showing in their World Cup campaign.

"The biggest thing we can do for people is win our next game against Australia. That will bring a little bit of light relief to some people going through a tough time," he said.

The Black Caps will line-up for their second group game this week, taking on fierce rivals Australia looking to pick up their second win of the tournament. The Kiwis can be assured of a much firmer test than they faced in their opening game against Kenya. The African side only managed to rack up 69 in their innings with New Zealand's pace attack taking little time in establishing their superiority in the match, although the ICC cricket world cup betting always suggested they'd win.

Openers Martin Guptill and Brendan McCullum had no issue reaching their target and the game won't have been a fair assessment of what this squad can achieve in this tournament. The Aussie batsmen will be a different proposition and they were given a good run out batting first against Zimbabwe with most of the top order getting time at the crease.
