Full commentary

Well, that's a comprehensive victory for Australia featuring several debutants and under Michael Clarke's captaincy for the first time. A good Twenty20 game on a pacy WACA pitch which had everything in all three departments. Fireworks erupt in celebration of an excellent spectacle, with Oram at least fighting back at the end to reward a packed house. New Zealand, then, have been given something to think about ahead of the Chappell-Hadlee Series of three one-dayers which kicks off on Friday in Adelaide. But Australia have a worry with Symonds' injury, he hurt his ankle fielding. Thanks for joining me today and do come back for some more action at the end of the week.
