After being put in to bat first, Australia scored 118 runs in the powerplay. David Warner and Travis Head, who replaced Cameron Green in the playing XI, went on a riot.

The duo recorded the fastest team 100 in the ongoing edition of the competition in only 55 balls. Warner was coming into the match after hitting two hundreds. He brought up his half-century off just 28 balls.

Then, Head completed his half-century, which happened to be the fastest fifty in World Cup 2023. Warner and Head did not show the Black Caps any mercy and kept going for one ball after the other.

Matt Henry leaked 44 runs in three overs. Henry did not make life easy for himself after he bowled two no balls in one over. Head did not play Australia's first five matches due to a hand injury that he sustained before the World Cup. In his place, Mitchell Marsh opened the batting along with Warner. Once Head returned, Marsh went down the batting order despite scoring big hundreds.
