Kia ora and welcome to Newshub's live coverage of the World Cup clash between the Blackcaps and Afghanistan at Chennai's M. A. Chidambaram Stadium.

New Zealand currently sit alongside hosts India as the only unbeaten teams at the tournament, with three comprehensive wins in as many matches.

After crushing defending champions England in the opening game, the New Zealanders swept aside Bangladesh and the Netherlands to sit joint atop the standings.

But they'll face a potential banana peel against Afghanistan, who are riding high after their own crushing win over England last weekend - recording the most famous win in their cricketing history.

We'll have all of the action from 9:30pm.

New Zealand $1.27     Afghanistan $3.55
