That brings us to the end of the coverage of this much-anticipated encounter between Australia and New Zealand. It was team Australia who take the honors at the end of the match and they lead the series by 1-0. Hope you have enjoyed all the action here at our network. Do join us for all the upcoming matches from all around the globe. For now, this is me Hitesh Peddurwar signing it off along with my esteemed co-commentators Ayan Chatterjee and Tugral Azmi with our scorer Dushyant Madhukar Kumar. Until then stay safe...
Cameron Green(Player of the match): "Yean I am a little bit tired, it feels good to score some runs for the team. My role is to play till the end of the innings and I am happy that I stayed till the end of the innings and took my team over the line. Yeah for sure I will be back for the next game. We knew that if we spend the time in the middle and play till the end then we can take our team over the line."
Kane Williamson (New Zealand Skipper): "The game fluctuated on a challenging surface. We were aware that we fell short of expectations, but Cameron Green and Alex Carey deserve praise because it only took one delivery for them to save their partnership. We attempted to end that alliance, but we were unsuccessful. It's encouraging to see how well we've adapted to this surface, which is a little different from what we're used to over here."
Aaron Finch, Australia Skipper: "The heart rate is a bit high. We have made the chase very exciting than we should have. From the start we got, the partnership between Green and Carey was crucial. It would have been better for both to take the game and finish it off in the end and make it less stress-free. But credit to New Zealand for making life difficult for us. I think it was challenging for us the top-order batters, but we keep on making the same mistakes again and again. We have to improve our top-order batting to get better. Great game of cricket. I think Cameron Green was great and sore as he will be very tired as we speak. Great to get the win, but have areas to work on."   
Finally, after loads of drama Aussies snatched away the victory from the jaws of defeat. Australia won the game by 2 wickets and they have created a new record as 233 is the highest target chased down by any team after losing five wickets inside 50 runs.

Australia got off to a disastrous start while chasing a target off 233 runs. Skipper Aaron Finch(5 off 4) and David Warner(20 off 25) opened the innings for Australia, but the New Zealand bowlers had different plans for the Aussies. Kiwis bowlers ripped off the Australian batting order.  Aaron Finch's struggle against the inswinging balls continue as he was trapped in front of the stumps by Trent Boult. There on the wickets started tumbling down for Aussies, all the batters struggled against the inswinging balls and Trent Boult took a full toll of it as he bagged 3 wickets in the powerplay and he was accompanied by Matt Henry who got rid of the big fish David Warner.

The backbone of the Australian middle order Steven Smith departed without troubling the scorers by much as he departed after scoring just 1 run off 8 balls. Marnus who was coming from a break got out for a duck., Marcus Stoinis walked back to the hut after scoring 5 off 11 balls.4 out of 5 Australian top-order batters walked back to the hut with a single-digit score.

Fair to say that it was Trent Boult and Matt Henry's show in the first 15 overs of the Innings and then on it was just Alex Carey and Cameron Green's show. At one stage it looked like it will be an easy win for the Kiwis, but this duo turned the tables around and took the game into control.

Alex Carey and Cameron Green showed some resilience and got settled in the middle. They stitched a mammoth partnership of 158 runs for the sixth wicket and steered the sinking ship pretty well. Alex Carey played exceptional innings of 85 runs off 99 balls. He got dismissed by Ferguson in the 40th over.

And there was a twist in the tale as the Aussies lost a couple of quick wickets, the big man Glenn Maxwell departed after scoring just 2 runs off 8 balls, Starc didn't trouble the scorers much as he walked back after scoring 1 run off 3 balls. But Cameron Green held his nerves and took his team over the line, he played a terrific inning off 89* runs off 92 balls. He was having cramps in his calves, but he stayed in the middle till the end and took his team over the line.

Earlier in the day, Australia won the toss and chose to bowl first. There was nothing to offer for the bowlers from the pitch, but Australian bowlers did pretty well to keep the Kiwis on the back foot. They didn't allow them to score easy runs. Kane Williamson(45 off 71) and Devon Conway(46 off 68) steered the innings for the Kiwis after losing an early wicket. Duo stitched a partnership of 81 runs for the second wicket.

Tom Latham(43 off 57 )and Daryl Mitchell(26 off 33) got settled in the middle and got off to a good start, they kept the run rate ticking for the Kiwis and built a partnership of 52 runs for the fourth wicket. But Maxwell had some other plans for both these batters, as he scalped two wickets in the 42nd over and pushed the Kiwis batters on the backfoot. Kiwis started losing their wickets in the quick intervals, and they were restricted to a total of 232/9 in 50 overs.

Maxwell was the pick of the bowlers for Australia as he took 4 wickets and gave away 52 runs in his 10 overs. Hazlewood took three wickets. Mitchell Starc and Adam Zampa took one wicket each respectively.
