7.15pm Stoinis arrived at 54 for 5 and did not budge at all. He picked off the gaps with Faulkner, picked off the short straight boundaries with the tail, and powered onto follow an uninterrupted spell of 10-0-49-3 with a sterling century. He even added a fifty stand with No.11 Josh Hazlewood with the latter not facing a ball in about 30 minutes. During the process, Stoinis became the first Australian to hit a century and claim three wickets in an ODI. At the end of another thriller, though, New Zealand came away with a win, Kane Williamson producing that piece of magic. Dan Brettig's report should be your next stop. This is the Muthu brothers knocking off an Eden Park screamer from our bucket list.

7.10pm I shall bring you the presentations

Aaron Finch: That's a rollercoaster. Probably one of the best one-day performances [from Stoinis]. Just couldn't get over the line. You are aiming to get it deep, you never know what happens. I thought we were sloppy; the all-round performance. We believed we could chase 287, the ball flies at Eden Park. A lot of extras and wides, you can nitpick anything. Just a bit of a shoulder twinge [while batting]. I will get through it.

Kane Williamson: As Finchy mentioned, it was a rollercoaster. The way Marcus played for a good part of 35 overs was fantastic. He deserves to be the Man of the Match. On these sort of grounds, you need to look to take wickets. The way they built partnerships late gave us a chance too. Eden Park has produced some thrillers, and nice to be involved in this. It [Placing myself at short mid-on] was hopefully to gather a throw from somebody and avoid a direct-hit maybe.We need to be better going into Napier.

Marcus Stonis, Man of the Match: It may sink in later, the win was the priority. Some sad faces in the dressing room. I am not experienced for these grounds. Finch gave me the confidence - I had a full crack at ten overs. The key was not to panic. The first instinct is to score quicker. Jimmy [Faulkner] was good out there to bat with. We calmed each other down, and at the end we had a crack at it. Sometimes, the plans don't come off. A performance like this does well for your confidence, but consistency is the key. Hopefully, I back it up.

7pm 27, 911 fans celebrate with Kane Williamson and his team on Auckland day. Stoinis is stranded and left heart-broken.

Rikhil katyal: "28th Feb, 2015, wins the game with last hit off the bat 30th Jan 2017, wins the game with the last hit off the ball Venue: Eden Park Opposition: Australia Name: Williamson, Kane Williamson!!! "

Clinton: "Hazlewood a diamond duck in 26 minutes, that has to be a record!"

Rohantha: "This has the 1999 Alan Donald run out written all over!"

Safi: "First Rafa-Roger then Ind-Eng now Aus- NZ! These people giving me heart attacks."

Southee to Stoinis, OUT, Venue: Eden Park. Hero: Kane Williamson. Result: New Zealand win a thriller! You've heard that before? Whoa.... What a game. Breathless stuff. First let us give credit to Williamson for placing himself at short mid-on. Southee nails a yorker on off stump, Stoinis can only dig the ball out fairly straight to Williamson. He collects the ball, falls in front of the stumps, and under-arms it into the stumps to catch Hazlewood short. Hazlewood had lost his head. He was off for a single - there wasn't a single there - he has to spin back. He dishes out a desperate dive, but that's not enough. This is the first time Hazlewood has been dismissed in an ODI. Spare a thought for Marcus Stonis, though. Nearly pulled off an incredible heist from nowhere

  • Zero off zero

    There is a unique humiliation in a diamond duck. Any fool can get out first ball, but it takes a special sort of ineptitude to be dismissed without facing. Carry that on to the international stag
