CANBERRA: Determined New Zealand side are all set to gather their force and re-attack on surging Australia in the second ODI at Manuka Oval, Canberra on Tuesday .
New Zealand must have left the Sydney Cricket Ground on Sunday night thinking, “if only”. If only they had taken review when Steven Smith was given not-out by umpire Mick Martell on 14, things would have been different.
Kiwis have now move on to Canberra with host going 1-0 up in the three-match series. This makes the upcoming match a must-win for New Zealand if they want to retain a hope alive in the Chappell-Hadlee Trophy.

The good news for New Zealand is that they had one batsman who looked every bit as dangerous as Smith at the SCG, but unfortunately for them, Martin Guptill couldn’t go quite as deep into the innings as Smith, and fell for 114 off 102 balls.
The toss may be particularly important in Canberra, where big runs are generally available, and the team batting first has won the six most recent ODIs.
