10.45pm: A pretty comprehensive win for Australia's revamped T20 XI, there. As ever, New Zealand's neighbour issues seemed to hold them back... A limp batting effort, decapitated by Billy Stanlake and then docked by AJ Tye, saw them post a well below-par target and Australia, despite a wobble from the openers, knocked them off. When you've got a couple of guys like Chris Lynn and Glenn Maxwell, fresh out of the Big Bash, six an over isn't going to be a test. Anyway, that's pretty much a wrap for tonight - Miller has dashed up his report on a rather limp affair and we'll be back for more when Australia take on England in Hobart on Wednesday. Bye!

"Australia proving what we all knew at the innings break, which is that NZ were a good 60 runs short today," mooches Dan. "Wish that rain had hung around."

Southee to Maxwell, FOUR runs, length, think that was a cutter from Southee, Maxwell skitters across his stumps like a seaman in a gale and swats four more past the dive of fine leg

Here's Jeremy again: "To be clear - I never said Australia were at a disadvantage. I just think they lost some of the huge advantage their bowlers had gained. It won't really matter for this chase, but it could have been overly significant had it actually been a difficult wicket and 117 was almost a par score." But the argument is actually that, in a shorter chase with greater resources (wickets), a team can afford to go much harder - you need five overs for a game, so it's always going to be in the chasing team's favour
