Emotional Black Caps prepare for Australia

6:22 am on 24 February 2011

It'll be an emotional Blacks Caps team that takes the field tomorrow against Australia in their second group match at the Cricket World Cup.

Since the Christchurch earthquake the New Zealand captain Daniel Vettori has said the best thing they could do for a lot of people is to win tomorrow night in Nagpur.

On form that prospect is unlikely, but not impossible, and the Australians might not be in the best of spirits after Ricky Ponting's reprimand for damaging a tv set after his dismissal during Monday's game against Zimbabwe.

The Chappell-Hadlee Trophy is at stake tomorrow night, as it's the only time NZ and Australia will meet in a one day international this summer.
