Australia vulnerable: Mills

6:49 pm on 11 June 2013

The New Zealand cricketers sense Australia are vulnerable ahead of their Champions Trophy match in Birmingham on Wednesday night.

A Black Caps win would ensure them a place in the semi-finals while a loss would more than likely mean elimination for Australia, after their opening loss to England.

Veteran fast bowler Kyle Mills says the target will be Australia's top order batsmen, who he believes will be looking over their shoulders in fear not only needing to win the match but also to hold their places in the team.

Fresh from a one day series win over Australia and one wicket win over Sri Lanka in their opening Champions Trophy match Mills says beating Australia would be their most satisfying result.
