On a difficult pitch for the batsman key wickets taken by Matt Henry were the key to victory for New Zealand in the deciding match in Hamilton against Australia. New Zealand found going tough batting first, Martin Guptill top scored with 59 and Grant Elliott also got a half century with 50 as New Zealand struggled to post a score of 246. Three wickets for Mitchell Marsh and fine economical bowling from Adam Zampa kept the score down in a strong bowling effort.

In reply despite Usman Khawaja’s 44 Australia found themselves in trouble early at 94-4 with Glenn Maxwell out for a duck. That brought together George Bailey and Michell Marsh who put on a partnership of 59 to bring Australia back into the game. However Henry turned the tide breaking the partnership bowling out Bailey for 33 and shortly after getting a caught & bowled to remove Marsh for 41. Henry took three wickets in all as New Zealand eventually bowled Australia out for 191 with little resistance one Bailey and Marsh had gone. This completes a big series win for New Zealand in the one day game. The two sides will not meet in a 2 match test series over the next few weeks.
