Player of the Match

Australia take a 1-0 lead in the best of 5 series, and it was well deserved with no extras given away by their bowlers and they kept New Zealand to a run rate of 6. They started the chase well before a clump of wickets threatened to derail their innings. Blackwell and Cameron stopped the rot but the required rate continued to rise as they departed. Healy and the debutant Coyte put together a superb partnership with very few dot balls to take their side home in the last over.

Sarah Coyte is the Player of the Match for her wonderful debut, scoring a crucial unbeaten 14 to take Austalia to victory with Healy in addition to her tight bowling which brought her 2-18 in her 4-over allotment.

Thanks very much for joining us today, this series adjourns till February as the Australians head home to play England. From all of us here at ESPNcricinfo, this is Avi Singh signing off and wishing you all a happy New Year.
