    31.5 big appeal for caught behind, they're going up with the noise, but could it be bat hitting ground? Australia go for review. It's a very full, very wide delivery, that Brownlie looks to slice off the open face. Chris Brown, the on-field umpire, said no. But snicko points out a spike as the ball passes the bat. Umpire Dharmasena asks the decision to be reversed and so Handscomb has a second catch, this one diving forward to pick up a ball that is dying on his way through to him 176/3
    2.6 of all the balls to fall to. This is full. This is miles down leg. This has boundary written all over it, and Latham tries to oblige, flicking the ball in the air, looking for the fine leg boundary. Instead, he finds the only man there, Josh Hazlewood moving smoothly to his right, diving forward and taking a super catch. So Australia's non-review has cost them, and Starc, absolutely nothing 6/1
    14.5 what a beauty! Extra bounce, and darting in off the seam too. It's that movement that does him. The ball begins as a short one outside off so Williamson gets a late cut ready, but he is caught off guard because it rears up, cramps him for room and takes a little tickle off the inside edge through to the keeper. Great reward for a probing spell from Cummins. 76/2
    46.5 pummels it... straight to deep square leg. Taylor walks off to a rousing ovation, but without him, New Zealand have no hope of getting to the kind of score they want. Good bowling from Faulkner, hitting a stump-to-stump line, changing his pace as often as possible 246/7
    35.6 huge nick and umpire Brown says off you go. Hits the seam and kicks up off the pitch. Takes the outside edge at the shoulder of Broom's bat as he comes forward to try and defend. Beautiful bowling, with just a little help from the pitch 198/4
    38.4 the pressure has told. Munro couldn't get anything away. Not even singles, with the field up. And here, he tries to chip a fuller ball outside off for a few runs but does so in the air. Starc at mid-off, comes forward and dives to complete the formalities 205/5
    40.2 chops on and Neesham falls. Clever bowling from Australia, they've realised the kind of bowling that will help on this pitch, the cross seamers and slower balls and hitting the deck with the seam. This one climbs a bit more on the batsman and his trying to find runs at third man fails badly. The ball grazes past off stump, the bail takes a long time coming off, but off it comes. Neesham almost thought he had gotten away with it 209/6

    49.1 nothing better for a fast bowler. A searing 146 kph yorker on the base of middle stump and Southee, running away from the ball, leaves it free passage to hit his woodwork. Starc's pitch map today would make fine reading. So many into the blockhole 265/8
    49.2 another yorker and the stumps are in disarray again. Ferguson's bat just doesn't come down quick enough. Starc just turns around after seeing the bails fly. He wants to get this over with, put his feet up, bag the trophy and go home. Seems to be getting some late away swing as well 265/9

    20.6 got lucky with the previous delivery, this time he muscles it straight to the lone man at deep midwicket. Looked to go over long-on perhaps, ended up dragging it a bit, and towards the longer boundary there, he stood no chance. New Zealand back into this 119/3
    7.2 real bonus for New Zealand. Marsh was really slow on the turn. This was full on the pads, he flicked this towards deep square, where Mitchell Santner got to the ball quickly and fired a throw on the halfvolley to Latham, who did the rest. Have to say that was an excellent take from the keeper, and Marsh is caught comfortably short of the crease. Why would you want to self-destruct like that? He was just starting to play some gorgeous shots 44/1
    7.4 chopped on! New Zealand are back and indecision in footwork has cost Handscomb. Simply wafts at an away-going length ball, nothing shot really. No feet movement whatsoever. The ball crashes into the stumps off the inside edge 44/2
    32.2 superb catch by Dean Brownlie at deep square leg. He had to be mindful of the ropes just behind him, but he kept his balance and judged the catch to perfection. Coming back to the delivery, excellent short ball at 140 clicks, Head had to fetch this from outside off. The ball got big on him but he went through with the stroke and simply top-edged it to the fielder in the deep. Lot of credit to the bowler, for the effort. 173/5
    21.6 this one drifts back in, pitches outside off and spins away, Maxwell shapes to cut, gets the thinnest of edges through to Latham who rides the bounce and takes an excellent catch. Very thin spike, there wasn't much on hotspot either. Maxwell shakes his head as he walks off 120/4
    39.1 he's picked out the fielder at long-on. Superb bowling from Santner, tossed this up but the ball dipped on Stoinis, who looked to slap this across the line but couldn't get underneath it and hit it straight to Neesham. 198/7
    32.6 there was a wide slip in place specifically for this. Faulkner is squared up by the late movement, gets a thick edge that was dying on Taylor, who moves low to his left to complete a stunning catch. This is outstanding tactics from New Zealand. First to place the fielder there, and then set the batsman up before eventually. sending him on his way. The front foot is fine, the umpires were checking for the catch. Kumar Dharmasena, the third umpire, had a couple of replays, before relaying his decision to the on-field umpire. 174/6
    44.4 one shot too many and he's gone! Cummins looks to go through with the pull but was beaten for pace and hurried into the stroke, ended up lobbing it to midwicket where Santner made no mistake. Relief in the New Zealand camp. Is that it for Australia? 249/8

    46.1 he's got five! Ross Taylor was brought in at wide first slip position precisely prior to this delivery and the plan comes off. This is a cutter, gets a bit of grip and bounce, Zampa hangs his bat out without any conviction, gets a thick edge and Taylor does the rest. 253/9
    46.6 you beauty, Boult! Six wickets and New Zealand have regained the Chappell-Hadlee Trophy. Subtle change in pace with that length ball, Hazlewood look to force that through the off side, plays outside the line and can only get a thick inside edge back onto the stumps. New Zealand win the series 2-0. These are Boult's best figures in ODIs, his second five-wicket haul in his career, and both have come against Australia. The last time he did it - at the 2015 World Cup at Eden Park - was equally special. 257/10
