    So Australia look very good. New Zealand still have work to do to reach the semi-finals. Their next game is against England on Wednesday.

    You can read today's match report here.

    If you missed the madness that was Pakistan v Afghanistan then head over here.

    Scroll down for highlights and reaction to the Aussies big win.

    We'll be back tomorrow for the big one. This man is waiting for England...

    There were some brilliant catches in this match.

    Guptill just edges it for me. That might be the catch of the tournament so far.

    Starc took the final wicket to complete his five-wicket haul and seal the win.

    He now has 24 wickets in the tournament, seven more than anyone else.

    He is also the first player to take three World Cup five-fors.

    As ever Mitchell Starc was the key man with the ball for Australia.

    New Zealand always had a chance when Kane Williamson was at the crease but Starc removed him in his first over of a new spell.

    Here's the up-to-date table - not the one from last week I foolishly showed you earlier. Well done to those who spotted my deliberate mistake. Just testing.

    New Zealand captain Kane Williamson: "Obviously it was a fairly challenging surface. We were able hit the wicket hard and put the ball in the right areas to get some rewards. It was a position of strength at the halfway stage of the first innings. A lot of credit goes to them for the way they rebuilt the innings and got to a competitive total.

    "It was a tough old surface. Australia adapted better than we did with the big lads who hit the wicket hard.

    "As we saw in the first innings, we needed one major partnership of 100 plus to soak up pressure and turn momentum. It wasn't to be today. We need to improve and we move on quickly."

  10. Post update

    New Zealand had Australia 92-5.

    They could - and maybe should - have bowled the Aussies out quicker than they did.

  11. 'NZ missed a trick'

    Jeremy Coney

    Ex-New Zealand captain on BBC Test Match Special

    They missed a trick with the handling of the attack. When you have a side like Australia 92-5, you don't take your foot off the throat and you bring back the fast bowlers. If the lesser bowlers have to come back later, so be it.

    I thought it was poor management. There is a growing concern of the spin department on these slower pitches. Santner will be frustrated he only bowled three overs and went for seven an over.

    Sodhi went for sixes today - should have played at "Edg-bunsen". So the captain bowls seven overs for 25. There are whole issues around that, how will they manage that in the remaining matches?

    They were well beaten.

  12. Post update

    Australia wicketkeeper Alex Carey: "It was not the start we wanted but Uzzie [Usman Khawaja] was out there occupying the crease. I went out and assessed conditions and tried to bat time and go as deep as possible.

    "It did play on the slow side and there was nice spin.

    "For me it was just keeping it simple and sticking to my strengths. If it was pitched up drive and short go with it.

    "Credit to Usman as well, he batted a long time in that heat and Mitchell Starc closing it out with the ball."

  13. Post update

    It's not Starc but Alex Carey who is named player of the match. He changed the game with the bat. He came in at 92-5 and made batting look more comfortable than anyone.

    He hit 71 from 72 balls when everyone else could only slump along.

    It's five wins in a row for Australia now.

    Ominous.

    It's cleaning up the tail all the time for Starc. He bowled two overs early, was held back by Finch and then came back when New Zealand tried to attack him - fruitlessly.

    Australia win more convincingly than I thought they would.

  16. Post update

    Starc's team-mates let him lead the team from the field. He waves his cap to the crowd.

    He's going up on the honours board. 5-26.

  17. AUSTRALIA WIN BY 86 RUNS

    Santner c Behrendorff b Starc 12 (NZ 157 all out)

    There it is! Starc has five. Australia earn a thumping win. Are they the favourites?

  18. NZ 158-9

    This is Starc's last over. He's desperately trying to add to these four wickets.

    Lyon adds a nice quality to the attack because he gets drift, turns the ball, changes the angle and asks questions of the batsmen.

  20. NZ 157-9

    Target 244

    Right then. Can Mitchell Starc finish it off in this over?
