New Zealand tour of Australia, Only T20I: Australia v New Zealand at Sydney, Feb 15, 2009
15 February 2009 - night match (20-over match)

Southee to Haddin, OUT, taken this time, and what a ball to get a wicket! Southee sends down a full toss, Haddin walks into the shot and hits the ball back over the bowler, who cups it up in the air and then takes it on the second attempt, to his right .. Haddin can't believe he's bunted a full toss back to Southee

BJ Haddin c & b Southee 15 (15m 10b 2x4 0x6) SR: 150.00

Australia 34/1   DA Warner 19* (12b 3x4)   TG Southee 1.4-0-13-1

O'Brien to Warner, OUT, again back of a length outside off stump, and Warner can only thump it to mid-off's lap, its the captain himself who pouches it in his lap

DA Warner c Vettori b O'Brien 23 (19m 15b 4x4 0x6) SR: 153.33

Australia 38/2   CJ Ferguson 0* (2b)   IE O'Brien 1.3-0-19-1

Butler to Ferguson, OUT, timber! Butler pitches it up on the stumps, very full and into the block hole, Ferguson walks away and swings, no contact made, and the base of the stumps is shattered

CJ Ferguson b Butler 8 (15m 9b 1x4 0x6) SR: 88.88

Australia 52/3   DJ Hussey 4* (8b)   IG Butler 1-0-5-1

Elliott to Voges, OUT, gets across his stumps and tries to paddle an overpitched delivery, but doesn't manage to get bat on ball and so Elliott traps Voges in front of about leg stump

AC Voges lbw b Elliott 26 (28m 24b 2x4 0x6) SR: 108.33

Australia 104/4   DJ Hussey 30* (31b 1x6)   GD Elliott 0.5-0-10-1

Vettori to Hussey, OUT, tosses it up on a length, slowing the pace, David sashays down and ends up chipping the ball up in the air, Broom steadies himself under it down the ground on the off side and takes it simply enough

DJ Hussey c Broom b Vettori 41 (51m 39b 1x4 1x6) SR: 105.12

Australia 128/5   CL White 13* (7b 1x6)   DL Vettori 3.2-0-19-1

O'Brien to White, OUT, up, up, up ... and ... into orbit ... it going, going, and ... oh well held Vettori! White heaves at another length ball on the stumps, sending it miles up into the evening sky, looks to be lost up there but the captain settles under it and takes a great catch just inside the ropes at deep midwicket

CL White c Vettori b O'Brien 16 (16m 11b 0x4 1x6) SR: 145.45

Australia 135/6   JR Hopes 4* (4b)   IE O'Brien 3.4-0-32-2

Southee to Henriques, 1 no ball, OUT, swings at a waist high full toss, gets a faint clip, McCullum dives superbly, injured shoulder and all, and intercepts the top edge brilliantly, then flicks the ball back to Southee, who runs out Henriques for 1 on his Australia debut

MC Henriques run out 1 (2m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

Australia 138/7   JR Hopes 5* (5b)   TG Southee 3-0-19-1
