The challenge on Friday

Postby KarenS » Wed Apr 18, 2007 7:17 am

ST GEORGE'S/GRENADA: Australia captain Ricky Ponting expects a full-blooded challenge from New Zealand on Friday after the World Cup Super Eights match against an under-strength Sri Lanka turned into a non-event.

Australia routed the 1996 champions, who took the field on Monday without their leading bowlers Chaminda Vaas and Muttiah Muralitharan, by seven wickets.

Strike bowler Lasith Malinga, yet to play a one-day match against the world champions, also sat out the match because of an ankle injury.

Although the trans-Tasman rivals have already qualified for the semi-finals on April 24 and 25, both intend to field their top sides in the final second-round match at the Grenada National Stadium.
