The co-hosts had the honour of being the first side to qualify for the knockout stages of this World Cup and few would dispute that they deserved it. Indeed, many people's outside bets for the competition could seal top spot in Pool A with a win in this game.
Everything seems to have come good for Brendon McCullum's side at just the right moment, with every batsman among the runs and the bowling attack of Boult, Southee, Milne and Vettori proving a match for anyone.
Afghanistan could not have a tougher test after their record thumping by Australia in their last match on Wednesday. The ease with which David Warner and Glenn Maxwell pounded the Afghan bowling will have McCullum and co whetting their lips, while their batting lacked composure against a bowling attack that is nowhere near as good as the Black Caps'.
Shock-haired opening bowler Shapoor Zadran has become a bit of a cult hero during this tournament, but the Australians targeted him and he will have to show that he can bounce back from going at almost nine an over in Perth on a much smaller ground
Venue and Conditions
It doesn't bode well for Afghanistan that in the only other game in Napier, the erratic Pakistani side ran up 339 against the UAE. With the weather set fair and the boundaries comparatively short, expect another high scoring contest.
New Zealand are currently 1.031/33. Afghanistan are 32.031/1. Does that give you a hint about how this game is going to go?
Top New Zealand Batsman
After the mauling that Warner and Maxwell handed out, it is safest to stick with a top order batsman, especially in this era of two new balls, as taking wickets will be hard for the Afghans. McCullum is the market favourite but there's always a chance of him hitting one up in the air early in any innings. The slightly more measured Kane Williamson might just be the best one day batsman in the world at the moment, so back him at anything over 4.03/1
Top Afghanistan Batsman
Nowroz Mangal was the one Afghan batsman who seemed capable of handing the Australian attack and it took a wonder catch to dismiss him. At odds of 6.05/1, he's your safest bet here.
Back Kane Williamson to be top New Zealand batsman at odds of over 4.03/1
