Australia build strongly with David Warner ton, Steve Smith fifty against New Zealand

Australia will look to seal the deal in Canberra after winning the first ODI against New Zealand by a 68-run margin in Sydney to snap a winless streak of five matches. The visiting Kiwis on the other hand will need to make sure they win this to force this three-match ODI series into a decider on Friday.

The Manuka Oval is usually a run haven and that trend may continue after big hitting exploits of Steve Smith and Martin Guptill in the first ODI. First-innings totals in the past five ODIs at this venue: 348, 411, 372, 267, 329.
