The cricket fans at the Himachal Pradesh Cricket Association Stadium in Dharamsala and all over the world were treated to a batting masterclass by both teams. The morning started in the foothills of the Himalayas with David Warner and Travis Head, the opening pair of the Aussies, taking the Blackcaps bowlers to the cleaners.

Despite the momentum of the Australian innings dwindling a bit in the middle overs, they managed to post a massive total of 388 on the board. The run chase for New Zealand was built around Rachin Ravindra and Daryl Mitchell, who continued scoring big runs from where they left off against India in the previous match at the same venue.

At the very end, it was James Neesham who tried his best to take the Blackcaps over the line for a famous win, but his run out on the penultimate ball of the innings settled the contest in favour of Australia. Some of the best reactions to this match on the social media microblogging site X are mentioned below.

With their fourth straight win in the ODI World Cup 2023, Australia consolidated fourth place on the points standings of the flagship tournament. They also closed the gap on their Trans-Tasman rivals New Zealand, with both teams only separated by the NRR.
