Scorecard summary
New Zealand Women180/10(49.1 overs)
Australia Women181/3(33.4 overs)

Australia win by seven wickets and that is a thrashing. More than 16 overs to spare. Dominant from start to finish. A huge amount for New Zealand to think about before the next match on Monday. Early wickets set the tone and then Australia's bowlers were to the fore before a very professional run chase with barely an alarm. That's 19 wins in a row now...the record continues. Thanks for joining me today, I'll be back for the second game. For now, from Andrew McGlashan, it's goodbye and enjoy the rest of the weekend.
