Steven Smith wants more from Australia attack in upcoming matches

The Australian batsmen too struggled when they were set a revised target of 235 in 33 overs, managing only 53 for three in nine overs which were possible.

Kane Williamson's assured knock of exactly 100, after Luke Ronchi's 65 off 43 balls against the country he once represented, helped New Zealand post a competitive total of 291 all out in 45 overs.

"With wickets in hand, guys can come out and play aggressively, but Australia has an attack which can make striking hard".

His fellwo pacer Trent Boult had struck the first blow for New Zealand, picking up the wicket of the risky David Warner in the sixth over.

"They haven't got a big 145 (kph) plus bowler or a trick spinner that some of the other teams maybe do and we can target that and go after them".

Overall, both the teams have been face-to-face in 135 matches which ended in Australia's favour 90 times and New Zealand emerged victorious in 39 ODIs.

Roy, meanwhile, is deep in a slump of form with 34 runs in six one-day innings since the start of the season.

Mother Nature gave the Australians a major wake up call against the Kiwis at Edgbaston, saving the Championship favourites from an embarrassing defeat. His 97-ball innings included eight boundaries and three sixes.

Tournament hosts England were the main beneficiaries after launching the competition with an eight-wicket win over Bangladesh at the Oval on Thursday.

Australia are due to play Bangladesh - a country where they postponed a Test series tour in 2015 over security fears - in the Champions Trophy One Day International tournament on Monday at The Oval, whose ground is not far from where the attack by three assailants took place late Saturday.

Williamson reached the milestone in the 40th over of the match before getting run out on the very next delivery he faced.

Williamson batted through the productive period of the New Zealand innings.

Two years ago, New Zealand lost their last ODI series in England 3-2.

Milne then removed Finch and Henriques, who both looked out of sorts.

"So for us now it's about making sure that we're playing each game like a final and winning the next two".

The only Australian bowler to hold his head high was Josh Hazlewood who took career-best ODI bowling figures of 6-52 but he was again expensive early leaking 20 off his first two overs.

Following the Manchester attack, Cricket South Africa had said there were concerns over safety but was comfortable with the reassurances and guarantees provided regarding the team's security.
