Team Australia is currently visiting New Zealand where they are scheduled to play a complete ODI series. They recently played Test, ODI and T20I series against the Green Shirts and in all cases, they destroyed Pakistan completely. Now, they are heading towards their next victory but unfortunately they would be outnumbered while visiting New Zealand. They have already lost their first ODI against Black Caps where the series consists of three matches. By facing an unfortunate defeat, the Aussie has fallen into pressure. Because, if they would lose the next match, they series will be missed.

However, the Aussie players were in good form but they faced the first defeat very unfortunately. But also, they might underestimate the power of Black Caps and from the defeat they could learn many things. However, Australia is a team which is now regarded as the most balanced team in the cricket world since very long. But, in the middle, they were outnumbered for sometimes but when Steve Smith took the lead of Australian team, the teams is getting more fearsome everyday.

However, there are some players missing in the current Aussie team which is travelling New Zealand. The skipper of the team Smith and one of the key player Warner are not in the team. Perhaps, they are spending some vacation after finishing the series against Pakistan and also recently finished Big Bash. But, their absence has already suffered the national team.

However, in their first match, Australia was given target to chase 286 runs. Basically, less than 300 runs was not regarded as the big score nowadays as well as specially in front of team Australia. It was about to an easy target but they had never thought about their batting disaster. They lost total six wickets within so few runs and so, from the commanding position, they just fallen into pressure. But, Stoinis who is almost a new player of Australian team made an unbeaten century. He scored total 146 runs where rest of the players were so dim in his day. But, he was introduced as a great player and would probably be the regular in national team. So, losing the first ODI, now Australia team is more careful because they do not want to face any series defeat and so, they have no other way but to win the rest two matches.
