They faced each other for the first time in the 1987 Cricket World Cup. The league stage match was affected by rain and was shortened to 30 overs per side. Australia scored 199 and won that close encounter by just 3 runs. They met again for their second face-off in the same stage. This was a complete 50 over game which was also won by the same team by 17 runs.

The opening game of the 1992 World Cup saw the neighbours playing against each other. The Kiwis won the match comfortably by 35 runs. This was New Zealand’s first ever victory over Australia in a World Cup game.

They met for the first time in a knockout game of a World Cup in the Quarter-finals of the 1996 edition. The Australians chased down a total of 287 in the 48th over and won the game by 6 wickets to proceed to the semi-finals.

In 1999, it was the turn of the Black Caps to chase a target of 214 in 45.2 overs in a league stage match. However, they were no match for the strong Australian team in the 2003 World Cup where they suffered a huge 96-run loss to the eventual champions. They suffered an even bigger loss in the succeeding edition. Australia had beaten the Kiwis by a whopping 215 runs in the Super 8 stage.

The Aussies completed a hat-trick of wins against New Zealand in the 2011 World Cup as they chased down a modest total of 207 in just 34 overs with 7 wickets in hand. The 2015 World Cup saw the AUS v NZ head-to-head twice.

The first match went right to the wire. It was a low scoring match which is a rarity at the Eden Park in Auckland. The New Zealand skipper Kane Williamson sealed a 152-run chase with a six to long on with just 1 wicket in hand. Australia exacted revenge in the Finals of the same tournament which was another low scoring match. Australia chased down 184 in the 34th over at the biggest cricket ground in the world, the MCG.

Having a look at the AUS v NZ head-to-head stats, Australia have won 7 while the Kiwis have won just 3 out of their 10 matches in the ICC Cricket World Cup. The Highest Score belongs to Australia (348) while the Lowest Score belongs to New Zealand (112). The Biggest Victories in terms of runs (215) and in terms of wickets (7) both are recorded by the Men in Yellow.
