09 December 2016 - day/night match (50-over match)
  Australia innings (50 overs maximum) R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal DA Warner run out (Boult) 156 214 128 13 4 121.87
49.6 from Boult, Boult splatters the stumps at the non-striker's end and catches Warner short from the last delivery of the innings. Pinpoint yorker just outside leg, Warner, having backed away outside leg, jams it towards short extra cover. Boult runs in, then to his right, and throws the stumps down. Excellent work 264/8
View dismissal AJ Finch c Nicholls b Boult 3 8 8 0 0 37.50
1.5 Another failure for Finch, he picks out Nicholls to perfection at shortish square leg. Good length and Boult finds inswing again. Finch looks to thump it down the ground from outside off with no feet, he can only drag an inside edge, which carries to Nicholls. That looked ungainly from Finch 6/1
View dismissal SPD Smith* c Nicholls b Boult 0 10 7 0 0 0.00
3.6 Boult strikes again. After bowling six deliveries on off or outside off, Boult brings this one back into the hips with the angle from around the stumps. Teases Smith to flick, despite the presence of two catching midwickets and a shortish square leg. The Australia captain shuffles across off, but can't keep it down. He holes out to Nicholls too at shortish square leg, falling into the leg-side trap. He goes for a seven-ball duck 11/2
View dismissal GJ Bailey c Santner b de Grandhomme 23 61 51 1 0 45.09
18.3 soft ball, soft dismissal. Spooned to midwicket. Early Christmas present for Santner and de Grandhomme. Good length holds its line on off, the batsman perhaps plays a bit early and lobs a simple catch. Santner did not even have to budge 73/3
View dismissal MR Marsh b de Grandhomme 0 3 2 0 0 0.00
18.5 De Grandhomme strikes twice in three balls. Marsh could consider himself unlucky. Just short of a good length and on off stump. Marsh is cramped for room as he aims to punch through the covers. But he is stapled to the crease He manages a thick inside-edge, which hits the front leg and then ricochets onto the top of the stumps 73/4
View dismissal TM Head b Santner 37 82 70 2 0 52.85
39.1 pre-meditated. Good delivery from Santner. Head moves across perhaps looking for an expansive shot through the off side. But Santner gets it to drift away from around the stumps and Head is far away from the line of the ball as a result. It does not turn much either, so he can't get anywhere close to it and the ball crashes into the stumps 178/5
View dismissal MS Wade c de Grandhomme b Santner 14 27 23 0 0 60.86
45.2 Wade pre-meditates a slog-sweep. Santner is smart with his variations in pace. He held this back, 78ks. Wade gets it high on the bat and holes out to deep midwicket 226/6
View dismissal JP Faulkner c Guptill b Boult 13 21 13 1 0 100.00
49.3 full and just outside off, Faulkner plonks his front leg forward and swings early, slower delivery from Boult. The batsman skies a catch to long-on 262/7

  New Zealand innings (target: 265 runs from 50 overs) R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal MJ Guptill c Bailey b Head 34 66 40 3 0 85.00
15.1 oh, what a catch! It's Bailey this time. Didn't fling himself full length like Smith in the previous match, but it was a remarkable catch nonetheless and very tough. It was fuller outside and Guptill could not keep his drive along the ground. The ball lobs over the head of Bailey at short cover and he leaps up to snaffle it. Timed his jump to perfection and his back formed an almost uncomfortable arch as he took it. Guptill is livid. New Zealand now need to be careful 79/3
View dismissal TWM Latham c Faulkner b Cummins 28 38 36 3 0 77.77
8.6 oh, dear! Picks out square leg on the flick. It was a good length ball and Latham used the angle well to flick it. Timed it to perfection but could not place it as he would have liked. The ball goes straight to Faulkner at square leg. Simple catch and Latham's promising innings comes to an end 44/1
View dismissal KS Williamson* lbw b Faulkner 13 21 12 2 0 108.33
13.6 and the on-field decision stays. It was a short of good length ball that was angling. Williamson moved across to get outside the line of the ball and flick it away to the leg side. But he perhaps moved away too much and ended up playing around the pad and the ball hits the front pad. Nigel Llong raised his finger but Williamson reviews it. Only way this can get overturned is if the angle takes it down leg. It is quite sharp but it seems as though it will be umpire's call. In fact, it's hitting the inside of the leg stump 74/2
View dismissal HM Nicholls b Starc 3 16 11 0 0 27.27
16.6 oh, gone. That's the perfect yorker. There aren't too many bowlers in world cricket today who bowl that delivery better than Starc. It was an attacking line and on the stumps. Nicholls was looking to bring his bat down to squeeze it out but the ball swings in late to beat the bat and rattle leg stump 83/4
View dismissal C Munro b Starc 20 53 38 1 0 52.63
28.2 rip-roaring reverse-swinging yorker. Late inward shape for the fast bowler. Clatters into the leg stump. Every time Smith wants to break the stand, he turns to Starc, and his bowler delivers. Munro attempts a whip or a drive, and is beaten for pace. The ball shot through even before the left-hander could bring his bat down 126/7
View dismissal BJ Watling lbw b Head 8 17 13 1 0 61.53
21.5 an appeal for lbw, not given. Did it straighten enough? It may have pitched outside leg. Smith and Head converge and challenge the on-field call. RTS does not detect an inside edge. It pitched in line, hitting off stump. Three reds flash on the big screen. Umpire Llong's on-field call is reversed. Watling attempted to sweep again, but made no contact this time 98/5
View dismissal C de Grandhomme c Head b Hazlewood 11 14 10 0 1 110.00
24.4 Head probably was late to pick up the ball. He runs in from deep square leg, dives forward, and pouches it. It jams the fingers under the ball; Head clings onto it nevertheless. Clean catch. NZ six down and sinking. Dug in short and outside off, De Grandhomme swivels on the back foot. Pulls and miscues it to the fielder 113/6
View dismissal MJ Santner lbw b Starc 15 25 21 3 0 71.42
30.6 not quite a yorker, very full and reverses in, Santner plays down the wrong line, and is beaten for pace too. Trapped in front of middle 139/8
View dismissal TG Southee c Warner b Faulkner 4 23 14 0 0 28.57
33.4 Southee's chancy stay comes to and end with a miscue to extra cover. It was the slower ball and Southee was forward looking for a big hit over long-off. The lack of pace means he does not get the timing right and he skews it off the high end of the bat to Warner who settles under it at extra cover 143/9
LH Ferguson not out 4 25 15 0 0 26.66
View dismissal TA Boult c Smith b Cummins 1 13 7 0 0 14.28
36.1 oh, what a way to finish! It's Smith again. Took a stunner in the previous game. This one's as good if not better than the one in the previous ODI. He dived to his left on that occasion; this time, flings himself full-length to his right to snaffle a blinder at second slip. It was a slower back of a length ball from Cummins and Boult backs away and looks to open the face of his bat to steer it. Gets himself into an awkward position and skews it off a healthy outside edge 147/10
