New Zealand started their T20 World Cup 2022 campaign with a big and crucial win against tournament hosts and defending champions Australia. Last edition's runners-up were clinical in the clash with their neighbours as they registered a dominating 89-run win.
Devon Conway smashed unbeaten 92 runs to help Kiwis score 200 runs while batting first in the Super 12 Group 1 opening fixture and then their bowlers put up impressive spells to bowl Australia out for just 111 runs.
The opening win has guided the Black Caps to the top of the Group 1 table with a healthy net run rate of 4.450 as they shift their focus to the next challenge in the form of Afghanistan.
Meanwhile, their star left-arm pacer Trent Boult was spotted batting in the nets ahead of their next clash on October 26. International Cricket Council (ICC) posted a video of Boult batting in the nets on their Instagram account with some funny captions.
ICC compared Boult's first shot with Indian captain Rohit Sharma with the caption, "Oh Rohit Sharma!" and continued to caption his other shots.

Daryl Mitchell set to return as New Zealand face Afghanistan next
New Zealand made their intentions clear in search of their maiden ICC World Cup trophy with their impressive win against Australia. After missing out on the last two World Cup trophies, Kiwis are now looking hungry again to lift the trophy in Australia.
Their chances are further boosted by the return of star batting all-rounder Daryl Mitchell, who missed the opening clash due to an injury.
The 31-year-old had scored the second-highest 208 runs from seven innings during the T20 World Cup 2021 and has been in sensational form with the bat this year. Mitchell is likely to replace Mark Chapman in the starting eleven and play at the number five position against Afghanistan on Wednesday.
On the other hand, Afghanistan suffered a five-wicket defeat against England in their opening clash and are unlikely to make any changes to their playing XI for the clash.
