After losing the supremely talented Brendon McCullum in the first over, the Black Caps needed both Martin Guptill and Kane Williamson to put the pressure back onto the Australian bowlers, however both have succumbed to Glenn Maxwell and Mitchell Johnson respectively.

The loss of Guptill and Williamson has left New Zealand reeling at 39-3 after 12 overs, putting plenty of pressure on Ross Taylor and semi-final hero Grant Elliot to put the Kiwi’s innings back on track.
