Rain affects Australia v New Zealand game in ICC Champions Trophy

In a match initially reduced to 46 overs per side, New Zealand made 291 all out before Australia's target was adjusted to 235 off 33 following a second heavy downpour.

Steve Smith hoped his pace attack would come good as the ICC Champions Trophy progresses.

"We bowled too wide outside off a lot of the time, whether it was short or full".

Williamson hit eight fours and three sixes to score 100 runs from 97 balls.

"Look, it's one of those interesting things when you form a partnership where you want to increase the run rate and you have wickets in hand, guys come out and play aggressively".

"We thought today was pretty good, and it's important we move on to the next game (against England in Cardiff on Tuesday)".

They asked the court to nullify Proclamation No. 216, saying it is "bereft of sufficient factual basis". The Amai Pakpak Medical Center (APMC) was not overrun by the Maute Group, according to Dr.

Josh Hazlewood took six wickets against New Zealand, but fellow quicks Mitchell Starc and Pat Cummins managed just one wicket between them, though Smith refused to reveal whether he would make changes to the line-up to face the Tigers.

Hazlewood, who led the late Kiwi collapse of seven wickets in six overs to finish with the second-best figures in tournament history, agreed with his skipper's assessment.

Skipper Steve Smith decided not to field all their "big four" of fast bowlers in their Champions Trophy opener against New Zealand.

Josh Hazlewood says Australia's bowlers will be much improved against Bangladesh at The Oval on Monday, despite their off-colour display against New Zealand.

Boult began New Zealand's surge with the ball after a rain-extended interval, as Warner feathered behind attempting an uppercut on 18 in the fifth over.

Broom (14), James Neesham (6) and Corey Anderson (8) went cheaply.

White House Defends Trump Criticisms of London Mayor
On June 4, three armed suspects drove a van through pedestrians before going on a stabbing spree in Borough Market, London . The mayor had told London residents not to be concerned by a stepped-up police presence in the city after the incident.

Now one win against either of the trans-Tasman duo will see Group A leaders England into the semi-finals.

Australia's top order did not look comfortable against New Zealand's disciplined seam attack with David Warner (18) the first to depart after his huge heave went straight through to Ronchi behind the stumps.

The last time the two teams met in a major tournament was at the 2015 World Cup final, when Australia emerged triumphant days after losing to New Zealand in the league stage. Ronchi returned with more lusty blows amid the best atmosphere of the innings, completing his first ODI fifty in the last 37 innings dating to January and his 170 against Sri Lanka.

"Let's hope it's rust and let's hope it's gone, because that was was pretty ordinary".

New Zealand didn't get to 200 until the 33rd over thanks to Hastings, Travis Head and Moises Henriques, who got the selection nod ahead of slugger Chris Lynn.

Australia was eliminated without winning a game four years ago, and is already up against it.

Mr Corbyn said: "The contribution I made to that meeting was to call for a peace and dialogue process in Northern Ireland". Questioned on whether this indicated that voters can not trust Labour with their money, he said: "Not at all".

"Jeetan Patel certainly has plenty of local knowledge and he says they produce the wickets the same way for County cricket and internationals, so he's certainly got some good insights for us".
