END OF OVER:
46 | 6 Runs 1 Wkt | NZ: 206/10

  • SE Bond9 (11b)
  • B Lee8-0-31-2
  • MG Johnson7-0-38-1

Australia hurt New Zealand with the new ball. Dew came into play later and the bowling didn't look as menacing as it was in the earlier stages as Vettori and Oram waged a gritty battle. But Australia have prevailed at the end and are through to the final.

That's it from me, Sriram Veera, and Jamie Alter. Join us tomorrow to catch up the action from the second semi-final between West Indies and South Africa. Till then .... ta!

Oh, and by the way, don't forget to go to www.cricinfo.com/alerts and download our new desktop alerts system. It's all jolly clever, and what is more, it works.

And, if you fancy a holiday in Kenya and a share of £10,000 prize money, join our Ashes fantasy league. Just pick your dream team for the Ashes and get ready for the action to begin.

Right, enough plugs. I'm off

Lee to Mills, OUT, That'd it. Australia make an entry into the final of Champions Trophy for the first time. Lee bangs one short, Mills backs away, again, to attempt a slog but gets a top-edge.

Lee to Bond, 1 run, Bond gets Mills back on strike with a push to left of Symonds at cover.

Lee to Mills, 1 run, Again Mills backs away, to fore-hand slap a short-of-length delivery through mid-off, down to the man at the deep.

The batsmen have a chat while the umpires had a discussion on whether to change the ball. They decide against it.

Lee to Mills, FOUR runs, Lee will be bemused now. Mills backed away this time and carved a short delivery past mid-off. Now mid-off goes back and fine-leg is up.

Lee to Mills, no run, Mills gives him the charge, throws his bat at a short of length delivery, intending to send it over deep midwicket, misses. Lee won't be amused.

Lee is back
