Preview: The English fans would be looking forward to the Eden Park clash between Australia and New Zealand as keenly as the Australian and Kiwi fans. And they would be rooting for their Ashes rivals Australia - an Australian win will keep England alive in the ongoing Trans-Tansman Tri-Series. But Australia's recent record at the stadium isn't too great - they have lost all the previous three matches.
