233/8 (45.0/50)
232/9 (50.0/50)
Australia beat New Zealand by 2 wickets
That's all we have from this low-scoring but entertaining game. The Trans-Tasman rivalry is up and running in style and the second ODI is on Thursday, 8th September at 9.50 am IST (4.20 am GMT). Do join us in advance for the build-up. Cheers!
Cameron Green (89* off 92 balls) is the Player of the Match. The tall all-rounder says that he is feeling tired and sore as his groin, calf, hamstring and forearms are gone at the moment. Hopes that he has a couple of days off and he will be fine. He praises Zampa and calls him the finisher. Lauds the batting effort of Carey too and shares that the plan was to stick around till the end. Tells that it means a lot to score his first ODI fifty and get his side over the line.
Kane Williamson, the captain of New Zealand, says the game ebbed and flowed on a tricky surface. Adds they needed a few more runs on the board. Calls the stand of Alex Carey and Cameron Green outstanding. Mentions that they tried hard and had Australia five down but then failed to get that breakthrough. Feels that they adapted to the conditions really quickly as it was a difficult pitch to bat on.
Aaron Finch, the Australian skipper, says that they have made a habit of making these chases close. Praises Alex Carey and Cameron Green for soaking a lot of pressure and feels that it would have been better had they finished the job. Credits New Zealand for their fightback. Mentions that there is still a lot of work to be done. Tells that it's an extraordinary effort from Green who will be sore and tired after facing all the cramps.
Stay tuned for the presentation...
This defeat for New Zealand is only and only due to a flavourless batting show. To provide context, their last six wickets fell for just 53 runs and that meant New Zealand were left with a below-par total on the board. As mentioned earlier, Trent Boult and Matt Henry were brilliant up front but the same intensity was lacking in the middle overs. The Kiwis did manage to break the stand between Carey and Green and then removed Glenn Maxwell and Mitchell Starc quickly as well, but the presence of Cameron Green didn't allow them to go all the way. The little contribution from Adam Zampa cannot be ignored which helped Green in the end who was struggling with cramps.
The chase started in the worst possible way for the home team. Aaron Finch fell again to one of his nemeses Trent Boult who was in fiery form. He removed Steven Smith and Marnus Labuschagne in quick succession as well, and then Matt Henry hunted down David Warner and Marcus Stoinis to put Australia's chase in the doldrums. With their backs to the wall, the pair of Cameron Green and Alex Carey joined forces and led the rescue act. They survived a few edgy moments and then looked at ease as the pitch settled down and the softer balls stopped doing much. Their record century stand stole the momentum away from the Kiwis, and Australia eventually crossed the line, but not without a late scare.
An unconvincing win for Australia, to say the least! Not the way they would have liked to reach the target, but they have reached it nonetheless. To sum it up in one line - They flaunted their batting depth in a rather insipid show to take the lead in this 3-match series. Australia now have 100 points in the ICC Men's Cricket World Cup Super League 2020-2022/23, and winning the next two games will take them to the top, above England.

Mitchell Santner To Adam Zampa
Tossed up, outside off. Zampa pushes it past point and collects a brace. Poor from the fielder, he throws it at the striker's end when everyone knows that Green is struggling with cramps. Anyway, excellent running particularly from Green who is struggling right now.
Common sense prevails. The covers are being taken off now. Both the batters are back in the middle. Mitchell Santner to continue...
Are they going off? Oh no, the umpires have called for covers. Australia are only 4 runs away from winning. They though are ahead on the DLS count. Both the batters are walking off the field. The New Zealand players have stayed out.

OUT! CAUGHT! Against the run of play, New Zealand have a wicket. The 158-run stand has been broken but is it too late for the Kiwis? 31 needed more off 65 balls. Coming to the delivery, it's short and outside off, Alex Carey stays back and tries to pull it over the infield on the leg side but ends up hitting it straight into the hands of Matt Henry at wide mid on. Carey is clearly disappointed to not finish the chase. He departs to a standing ovation from the crowd.

Matt Henry To Marcus Stoinis OUT!
OUT! STUMPS SHATTERED! Matt Henry roars in delight and Australia are now five down. Straightness is his signature, says the on-air commentator, and he reaps reward due to that quality. The speedster keeps his line on and around off and serves it on a shortish length at 137.2 kph. The ball lands and jags back in to breach Stoinis' back foot defense. It sneaks through and sends the bails flying. This has been yet another dismal display with the bat from the Kangaroos.

Starts with a floated delivery, short and on off, Alex Carey works it off his back foot towards square leg for a single.
Powerplay 2! The fielding side can now have up to 4 players outside the 30-yard circle till the 40th over. Also, Mitchell Santner to bowl now. More than his striking rate, he is known for his economy, so clearly New Zealand are looking to tie one end up and attack with their seamers from the other end.

Matt Henry To David Warner OUT!
OUT! TAKEN! David Warner places it straight into the hands of Michael Bracewell! Australia are in a mood to recreate what they did in the last match against Zimbabwe! Coming to the delivery - short of a length and on middle. Warner pulls it flat and hard. It comes off the middle but flies straight to Michael Bracewell at deep square leg. The only batter who looked in control during his stay at the crease goes now and Australia are four down.

Trent Boult To Marnus Labuschagne OUT!
OUT! LBW! Trent Boult gets another one! He is spitting fire right now! Just brilliant from the Kiwi! Boult with his orthodox delivery! An inswinging length ball, around off. Marnus Labuschagne gets on the back foot as he looks to defend but misses and gets rapped first on the front pad and then on the second. A huge appeal for LBW and up goes the finger. Marnus has a resigned look on his face, Warner tries to have a word with him but Labuschagne is certain that he's plumb in front. He walks back without taking the DRS and the Ball Tracking confirms that it's a good decision from Marnus. Three reds. Not a return to the ODI team he was hoping for.

Trent Boult To Steven Smith OUT!
OUT! DRAGGED ON! Trent Boult is best in the business with the new ball and he has two wickets now. Smith's struggle comes to an end! Boult serves a length ball, outside off, the ball lands and moves back in a bit late. Smith tries to drive away from the body but manages an inside edge and the stumps are disturbed. Australia are rocked early by the Kiwi pacer. That's one shot that Smudge will look back in regret. Very loose.

Trent Boult To Aaron Finch OUT!
OUT! LBW! A string of low scores continues for Aaron Finch as he departs early again. Trent Boult gets the better of Aaron Finch yet again who keeps on struggling against the left-arm pacers. This is on a length and around middle and off, shaping back in. Finch, who is standing well ahead of the crease to negate the movement, leans a bit as he looks to play in front of his pads and onto the leg side but misses and gets hit on the front pad. A huge appeal for LBW and the umpire is quick to raise his dreaded finger. Aaron Finch reviews it! Hot Spot doesn't show anything while the Snicko shows no bat. The Ball Tracking shows three reds and Finch has to make his way back.
