The 2023 Men’s ODI World Cup will be held in India and will run from October 5 to November 19. Each morning, we’ll gather the latest spoilers and news from the event and bring you the insights of our reporters on the ground.

New Zealand maintains a perfect record as Afghanistan collapse chasing 289

New Zealand 288 for 6 (Phillips 71, Latham 68, Navin 2-48, Omarzai 2-56) beat AAfghanistan 139 (Rahmat 36, Omarzai 27, Santner 3-39, Ferguson 3-19), a difference of 149 points.

After creating a sensation at the 2023 World Cup with victory over defending champions England on Sunday, Afghanistan were briefly hoping to upset the 2019 runners-up too. But the professional and experienced New Zealand brand was at the forefront again as they managed to maintain their unbeaten record to make it four out of four in the competition.

New Zealand were sent to bat, and fell from a comfortable 109 for 1 in the 21st over to an uncomfortable 110 for 4 in the space of nine balls. However, captain Tom Latham and do-it-all man Glenn Phillips revived the innings with a 144-run stand for the fifth wicket. They were also helped by Afghanistan slowing down the field with as many as six chances – five catches and a run out – as New Zealand took 288 for 6.

Match analysis: Glenn Phillips, New Zealand’s do-it-all man, has shown he can play the waiting game

Glenn Phillips is a man of many hats. He played hockey and football at school before becoming a professional cricketer. He is also interested in archery, hiking, surfing and mountain biking. He even has a flight simulator in his home country and dreams of becoming a commercial pilot after he finishes his sports career.

Phillips is also New Zealand’s do-it-all man on the cricket field. He has opened the batting alongside Rasheen Ravindra in Under-19 cricket. He can start in the middle order. He can finish innings. He can also keep wicket, although the back condition has restricted this skill somewhat. His playing skills need no introduction. He can also throw fast. He is also innovative.

    India vs Bangladesh, Pune (2pm AEDT; 8.30am GMT; 7.30pm AEST)

    The defending champion was upset by Afghanistan. Australia didn’t look like Australia at the last World Cup. Pakistan also seems to be lacking. The South African juggernaut collapsed before the Netherlands. Of all the teams nominated ahead of the tournament, only India and New Zealand played as favourites. The latter registered four wins in four, and now India will look to do the same, against Bangladesh in Pune.

    Bangladesh may have a positive 3-1 ODI record against India in the last 12 months – most recently winning a Super Four encounter in the Asia Cup last month – but beating India in India is easier said than done.

    Analysis: England are slow and steady and haven’t won the powerplay

    England at their best are unstoppable. But they got off to a rocky start in their first three matches at this World Cup: in defeats to New Zealand and Afghanistan, they started their batting differently to their opponents, and never recovered.

    On the opening day of the tournament in Ahmedabad, Jonny Bairstow hit the second ball he faced for six, taking Trent Boult over square leg for six as he took 12 runs from the start. But England could only manage 51 for 1 after 10 overs, and then the new ball leaked as New Zealand raced to 81 for 1 in the equivalent over.
