Australia's 34-run win in the Champions Trophy semi-finals has earned them a place in their first final of these competitions. Cricinfo looks at some of the significant numbers from the Mohali match.
16 - The number of times Australia have beaten New Zealand in the last 18 ODIs between the two teams
3 - The number of half-centuries for Daniel Vettori in ODIs. Two of them have come against Australia - at Christchurch in 2005 he scored 83, his highest in ODIs
103 - The seventh-wicket partnership between Vettori and Jacob Oram - it's New Zealand's third-highest for that wicket in ODIs, after the 115 that Lee Germon and Adam Parore added against Pakistan at Sharjah in 1996, and Parore and Dipak Patel's 111-run stand against West Indies at Kingston.
28 - The number of runs Daniel Vettori leaked in his last four overs after conceding just 13 in his first six
52 - The number of runs Australia scored in their last ten overs, despite having six wickets in hand after 40 overs
15.21 - Hamish Marshall's average in his last 21 ODIs.
51.98 - The average partnership between Ricky Ponting and Damien Martyn in ODIs. In 62 innings they have added 3015 runs
46.36 - Andrew Symonds' average in ODIs won by Australia. Of his 25 fifty-plus scores, only one has been in a losing cause
18.36 - Glenn McGrath's bowling average in ODIs against New Zealand. In 27 matches against them he has taken 53 wickets
