Commentary

What a finish - full credit to the Aussies for getting over the line, another great game of 50 over cricket in the battle for the Chappell Hadlee trophy. Smart bowling in the end from Harris got the Aussies home when it looked like it was going to go the other way. Player of the match was Dan Vettori for his excellent bowling and bold batting - sadly his innovative batting was his undoing. Great to watch though. These teams appear to be very well matched up and they will meet again on Tuesday at the lovely Seddon Park in Hamilton for the 3rd ODI. On behalf of the team this is Lawrie Colliver signing off - make sure you join us on Tuesday from Hamilton

What tension ------ ten from the over for the Kiwis. Maybe a dot ball might have been better there for the Kiwis, as Vettori would have had the strike
