This is the first time that Australia has all his frontline fast bowlers in the side. With Mitchell Starc, Josh Hazlewood, Pat Cummins and James Pattinson, Australia can wash out any batting line up on any wicket.

Though the team has not played together since their series against New Zealand at home, some 4 months ago, they had a warm-up game to gel together before the main event, and with pay dispute with the board, it might haunt them during the mega tournament.

On the other hand, New Zeland have had a tri-series in Ireland just before the event, and an ODI series against South Africa, that too, not long ago.
