Monday was originally designated as a rest day, and some games originally scheduled for Tuesday (December 6) have had to be rearranged as a result.

Great Britain's clash with Australia will now be played on Monday evening, followed by the Spain versus Pakistan game in Pool A.

The Netherlands will face Germany on the same day, with New Zealand facing Korea in Pool B.

On Tuesday, Pool A concludes with Spain playing Great Britain and Australia taking on Pakistan.

Pool B's final games are between Korea and Germany, and New Zealand and the Netherlands.

Australia and Britain are both on three points in Pool A after the first round of games, as Spain and Pakistan look to play catch up.

In Pool B, hosts New Zealand are also hoping to make up for an opening round defeat to Germany when they take on Korea, who themselves lost to the Netherlands in their opener.
