Following their limited-overs series against the Proteas in South Africa, Australia are back on their home ground and are all set to take on New Zealand in the three-match Chappell-Hadlee Trophy series which begins on Friday, March 13. The first two matches of the series will take place at Sydney Cricket Ground, while the third match will take place at Bellerive Oval. Ahead of the opening match, the Australian team had their regular training session, where former Australia captain Steve Smith was seen making fun of former Australian players during practice.
In a video posted by Cricket Australia (cricket.com.au) on Twitter, Steve Smith was seen in a jovial mood during the net sessions as he took a sly dig at the former players for playing slow. In the video, Steve Smith could be heard saying "Now that we wear these helmets, do we strike at 60?". Check out the entire video
Australia vs New Zealand 1st ODI will witness the Kane Williamson-led side look to break the drought of not having won an ODI match in the land Down Under for more than 11 years against Australia in three-match ODI series starting on Friday. Looking back at New Zealand's last victory in Australia, the Kiwis had beaten the Kangaroos back in February 2009. Since then, both the teams have faced each other in four games; once in the final of the ICC Men's Cricket World Cup 2015 and three ODIs in 2016-17, and it was Australia who has merged victorious every time.
