and that's the game! Amelia Kerr does the job, swings a back-of-a-length delivery through square leg and finds the gap
New Zealand win by five wickets and make it 2-1 in the series. First win against Australia since February 2017. Amelia Kerr with a superb all-round day. Did Meg Lanning make a tactical error by not bowling Georgia Wareham for her final over? That is a very important result for New Zealand. Australia weren't at their best with the bat but fought very hard in the field. Sets things up nicely for the one-day series which starts on Saturday.
Player of the Match is Amelia Kerr. "Felt pretty good to get a win against a quality side, nice to get a bit of momentum going into the one-dayers. Awesome to see Jess out there and do so well with the ball."
Play of the series is Ash Gardner. "One of the longest pre-seasons we've had and was nice to do other things. We worked really hard with NSW. We are pretty flexible within our batting order, whether that's me batting higher or lower it's about adapting to the situation."
Sophie Devine. "We know how hard we've been training so to finally put that out there was deserved. A bit of confidence moving into the one-dayers. It's a really quick shift now."
Meg Lanning. "There's lots to learn. Unfortunately we couldn't continue the momentum but New Zealand are a world-class side and we expected then to bounce back.It's nice to be back playing cricket after the last six months. Looking forward to the ODIs. Will be a great battle."
I'll wrap things up there for today. Thanks for joining us for this T20I series. From Andrew McGlashan it's goodbye for now.
that could be the shot! Dispatches a length ball over mid-off with a thumping lofted drive
length ball angling in at the stumps, driven into the off side, could have been out with a direct hit..or actually just a decent throw at the stumps!
So it's eight needed off the last over. Chance of a Super Over here. Megan Schutt will bowl.
comes down the pitch and loses her shape a little as she swings out to deep midwicket
dragged down short, pulled in the air but just short of deep midwicket
great shot! What a moment to bring that out...comes down the pitch and plays a piercing drive between cover and mid-off
worked along the ground into midwicket, no chance of making a second there
swing and miss! Goes for the slog sweep and doesn't connect. The foot stays behind the line
driven very firmly just to the left of the bowler and mid-off is inside the circle
That was a vital ball. Keeps New Zealand in touch. Molineux will bowl. Wareham still has an over left
there's the boundary they needed! The bottom hand comes off the bat as she throws herself into a length ball and it flies off a thick edge to third man
very full outside off, driven into the pitch off the bottom edge
moves outside leg, Schutt follows her with a yorker which is dug out down the ground
full at off stump, opens the face towards short third man
over the off side, gives herself a touch of room and carves over the ring but long-off is very square
just wide of cover! The drive goes in the air and just evades Lanning who is quite close
Schutt to bowl. So some pace on
fraction shorter, square drives into the off side and can't beat point. Fantastic spell from Jonassen
angled in full at the pads, can't find space on the leg side. Another dot
goes back and works this off the pads towards square leg
round the wicket, full at off stump, pushed into the covers
Right New Zealand, what have you got?
dragged on! And the game changes. Very full outside off, Satterthwaite goes for the sweep and gets a bottom edge into the timber
