Australia vs New Zealand: preview 

New Zealand are still in a terrific position, but so fine are the margins at this World Cup that their first defeat has seen them sink to third in the standings. And the Black Caps will drop to fourth if they lose to their trans-Tasman rivals, Australia, at HPCA Stadium in Dharamshala today. The Aussies set an impressive total of 388 in the first session, the highest score we've seen at this venue.

Having starting the tournament with back-to-back defeats, it had briefly looked as if Australia would be the butt all jokes before England took on that particular mantle and ran for the hills with it. Pat Cummins' men have since found their footing, and the batting masterclass they put on against the Netherlands in midweek could serve as a spectacular launchpad.

Glenn Maxwell consigned a David Warner ton to the shade by scoring the fastest ever World Cup century, one that put Australia on course for the highest margin of victory in the history of the tournament. It was ominous stuff, and from what previously seemed a position of strength, New Zealand may suddenly be feeling a sense of unease.

They've had a week in the mountains to ruminate on the beatdown they suffered at the hands of India, a game that saw only Daryl Mitchell and Rachin Ravindra step up to the plate with the bat. The sight of Virat Kohli sacrificing easy runs in pursuit of a century was an indictment of the Kiwis' bowling efforts, and they'll need to be much better here today.

Australia team: David Warner, Mitchell Marsh, Steven Smith, Marnus Labuschagne, Josh Inglis (wk), Glenn Maxwell, Travis Head, Pat Cummins (c), Mitchell Starc, Adam Zampa, Josh Hazlewood

New Zealand team: Devon Conway, Will Young, Rachin Ravindra, Daryl Mitchell, Tom Latham (c, wk), Glenn Phillips, Jimmy Neesham, Mitchell Santner, Matt Henry, Lockie Ferguson, Trent Boult

How to watch Australia vs New Zealand live stream from outside your country

Below we've got you covered with your official broadcasting options for more cricket-loving countries (and the US!), but if you're outside your country of residence - whether that's India, Pakistan, Australia or anywhere else - and try to start streaming the 2023 Cricket World Cup via your typical broadcasting service, you'll soon discover that you can't, as it's location restricted. But there is a way to tune in regardless.

By downloading and installing a VPN, you can effectively trick your computer into thinking that it's back at home. That way you can enjoy your home coverage without having to find an illegal stream - assuming you comply with the broadcaster's fine print, of course - specifically its terms and conditions.

Willow TV, meanwhile, is available from a number of cable providers including Dish, Spectrum, Xfinity, Verizon Fios and more. It's also accessible via OTT provider Sling TV across a range of devices. There are options to pay just for Willow (from $10 a month), or add it to your existing Sling plan. You can check out your options and sign up on its website.
