Fall of wickets: 1-14 (Josh Inglis, 4.3 ov), 2-16 (Aaron Finch, 5.4 ov), 3-134 (Marnus Labuschagne, 33.5 ov), 4-203 (Steven Smith, 44.1 ov), 5-227 (Glenn Maxwell, 46.3 ov)
4.3 to JP Inglis, edged, caught behind! Full outside off, Inglis goes for the drive and it's a thin nick. Early reward again for Boult. What a series he is having. That dropped chance wasn't very costly in the end. 14/1
46.3 to GJ Maxwell, taken at fine leg! The (Big) show doesn't last long. He clears his front leg to go heaving at that, but the change of pace - even if it was in the slot on leg - does him in, as does the bigger boundary there. The ball lands right there to Santner, who takes a step or two forward to claim that. Huge wicket for New Zealand, considering the damage Maxwell could do from here. 227/5
5.4 to AJ Finch, through him! That's it for Finch. Familiar style, it has to be said. A full delivery, angling back in, Finch comes forward to drive and it goes through the big gap between bat and pad. 16/2
33.5 to M Labuschagne, spliced to mid-on! The stand is broken. Short of a length outside off, Labuschagne goes for the pull and it skews in the air without any timing. Bit of a cutter from Ferguson at 126kph. Well bowled. 134/3
44.1 to SPD Smith, bowled him! Smith makes room, and hints to come down the pitch. It was a good length ball, and was bowled pretty straight. Smith looked to go over the off side - and inside out - again, but seemed to have a got a faint outside edge, as the ball ended up hitting the stumps. A patient rescue act comes to an end, as Australia look for late flourish. 203/4

Fall of wickets: 1-49 (Devon Conway, 8.4 ov), 2-57 (Finn Allen, 11.2 ov), 3-77 (Tom Latham, 17.4 ov), 4-106 (Daryl Mitchell, 24.5 ov), 5-112 (Kane Williamson, 27.3 ov), 6-173 (James Neesham, 37.1 ov), 7-224 (Glenn Phillips, 45.4 ov), 8-230 (Mitchell Santner, 46.2 ov), 9-242 (Lockie Ferguson, 49.4 ov), 10-242 (Trent Boult, 49.5 ov)
45.4 to GD Phillips, taken well on the fine leg fence! But hang on... it was touch and go there, as the third umpire makes his call. This could be the turning point of the game. Abbott there took the catch, and realising that he was moving backwards and about to touch the ropes, flung it back in the air, with both his boots very close to the rope there. Could be a tight call. Replays indicate his right boot may have just missed touching the rope as he was moving back, and looks out to me. Yup, given out, and Phillips has to go. It was a length ball angling into him, and seeing it was in the slot, he flicked with full force there. That was actually timed too well, and just about got him and New Zealand six runs. 224/7
49.4 to LH Ferguson, tickles off stump! Yorker length ball angling in, as Ferguson gets across off and tries to flick, with the ball sneaking in between his legs to hit the base of off. Australia having fun here. 242/9
49.5 to TA Boult, taken by deep point running forward, and sliding! Finch's ODI career ends with a win, as Australia clean sweep New Zealand 3-0. Full ball outside off, and Boult sliced that high to deep point, as Marnus ran forward and slid to complete the take. 242/10
24.5 to DJ Mitchell, simple catch to Smith at point! Short of a length, Mitchell going cross-batted attempting to pull, the ball goes straight up in the air. 106/4
11.2 to FH Allen, chipped to mid-on! Hazlewood goes low - almost diving forward - to pocket that. That was bowled with a cross seam on a good length on middle and off, and looked like having stopped on the pitch. Allen pushed at it early, and sent that looping to the close-in fielder. New Zealand lose two in quick succession, as Green strikes. 57/2
37.1 to JDS Neesham, taken at long-on! Has Neesham thrown it away bang at the wrong time? It was always a mistimed slog, and Neesham knew it the moment the ball went off his bat towards long-on. Looked like change of pace from Green, and on a fullish length on middle. Neesham got his front leg out of the way, and went heaving at that, only to miscue and balloon that for Smith. 173/6
8.4 to DP Conway, taken at point! Smith has claimed this, but Conway isn't going. Full outside off, Conway drove it in the air and it was taken low down. But soft signal is not out! Well, this will be interesting because of the not-out call. Looks like his fingers are under the ball from the first replay. Third umpire says out. You don't see the soft signal over-ruled too often in those situations. 49/1
46.2 to MJ Santner, finds long-off, and this could be it! The length was there to be hit, but he found the man placed on the edge of the rope. Santner was deep in the crease to that full ball in the slot outside off, but could only open the face of the bat to send that flying to the fielder. 230/8
17.4 to TWM Latham, stumped by Carey! Latham was skipping down the pitch, as the ball was fullish on middle and leg. It first tickled the side of his front leg, then went on to hit the inside of his back leg, as he missed his flick. The ball went on the bounce to Carey, who let it come to him rather than scampering forward. And because Latham was so far down the pitch, it also allowed him the extra second. Latham even dived back, but by then, the stumps were destroyed. 77/3
