OUT! Caught & Bowled. Pat Cummins to Trent Boult. Short, outside off stump backing away pulling, top edge in the air uncontrolled to silly point, by Cummins. It's all over. Boult wildly chucks the bat at this, and it goes straight up. Cummins calls for it, runs over from his follow-through, and pouches without any fuss.Australia comfortably win by 71 runs. There were questions to whether they had enough runs on the board at the halfway point, but this pitch was tough for the batsmen. New Zealand had a sniff when Tom Latham and Colin de Grandhomme were together, but the hosts held their nerve to quickly skittle out the lower order. A good day at the office for the Australian bowlers, who all contributed in some way. The hosts go 1-0 up in the three match series.Join us again on Sunday for the second ODI. Can the Kiwis level it up? Or will Australia take an unassailable lead?

FOUR! Pat Cummins to Trent Boult. Short, outside off stump backing away pulling, top edge past fine leg for 4 runs. So close to Carey, but it just clears the keeper for four. Boult wafts at this, gets a little top edge, and it flies away for a streaky four.

OUT! Bowled. Mitchell Marsh to Lockie Ferguson. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot Slog, missed to. Marsh gets his third. An ugly swipe across the line from Ferguson, and the ball skids through to clip the top of off. A proper tailender's dismissal. Australia just need one more.

FOUR! Mitchell Marsh to Ish Sodhi. Yorker, down leg side backing away Steer, outside edge past fine leg for 4 runs, mis-fielded by Carey. How's that gone to the fence? Sodhi goes a long way outside the leg stump, Marsh follows with a brilliant yorker, and the Kiwi squeezes down on the ball. It grazes the edge of the bat, and goes straight through Carey behind the stumps.

APPEAL! Josh Hazlewood to Lockie Ferguson. Short, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, Gloved to wicketkeeper for no runs, by Carey, appeal made for Caught. Hazlewood begins celebrating. There's not even an appeal he is that confident. Not sure how this hasn't been given. It is glaringly obvious that the ball pops up off the handle of the bat, but the umpire dismisses it. Huge error from the official. It won't make a huge difference to the result.

FOUR! Lockie Ferguson to Mitchell Starc. Length ball, off stump on the front foot driving, bottom edge past third man for 4 runs. That's handy. Starc swings hard, and the ball scurries away off the toe end past the keeper for four.
49.1
W
OUT! Caught. Lockie Ferguson to Marnus Labuschagne. Full toss, outside off stump Deep in crease driving, thick edge to backward point, by Taylor. Straight into the hands of backward point. Labuschagne was looking to go over the mid off or extra cover region, but it flies off the outer half to Taylor in the ring. Nicely pouched.
47.6
6
SIX! Ish Sodhi to Pat Cummins. Leg spinner length ball, to leg backing away driving, well timed in the air under control over deep extra cover for 6 runs. Cummins finally gets one away. He gives himself some room, and belts it majestically over extra cover for six.
45.6
W
OUT! Caught. Ish Sodhi to Alex Carey. Leg spinner full toss, outside off stump on the front foot sweeping, top edge to short fine leg, by Boult. It's a shocking delivery again that gets Sodhi a third wicket. A loopy full toss, Carey premeditates the sweep shot, and the ball balloons up off the shoulder of the blade to short fine leg.
45.3
W
OUT! Caught. Ish Sodhi to Mitchell Marsh. Leg spinner half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, mis-timed to extra cover, by Guptill. Marsh departs. Sodhi chucks it out wide to get the Australian reaching for it, and it results it a false stroke. Miscued into the hands of extra cover for a simple take.
38.2
4
FOUR! Trent Boult to Mitchell Marsh. Off cutter back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot cutting, well timed past deep backward point for 4 runs. Too wide from Boult with third man up in the ring. Marsh hangs back and carves this away through gully for four.
35.6
4
FOUR! Lockie Ferguson to Mitchell Marsh. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot glancing, well timed past fine leg for 4 runs. A second one of the over that is too far down leg. Marsh doesn't miss out. Tucked off the hip and the fine leg fielder cannot get round to cut it off.
35.1
4
FOUR! Lockie Ferguson to Marnus Labuschagne. Length ball, off stump on the front foot glancing, well timed past fine leg for 4 runs. Ferguson spears it into the pads, and Labuschagne plays this very well. Flicked away very fine for four.
34.3
W
OUT! Caught. Ish Sodhi to D'Arcy Short. Leg spinner back of a length, middle stump on the back foot pulling, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to deep mid wicket, by Nicholls. That is extremely soft from D'Arcy Short. Not a good delivery from Sodhi, but he gets the wicket. Dragged down, the left hander can put it where he likes, but Short ends up shovelling it straight into deep mid wicket's hands. Very poor stroke. Australia are stuttering here.
34.1
4
FOUR! Ish Sodhi to Marnus Labuschagne. Leg spinner back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, well timed in the air under control past deep mid wicket for 4 runs. Sodhi just cannot get it right today. It isn't coming out well. Labuschagne springs back, and dispatches this over mid wicket for four.
30.4
W
OUT! Bowled. Mitchell Santner to Steven Smith. Stock length ball, outside off stump on the back foot cutting, missed to. Santner has been absolutely superb so far today. He gets another big scalp. Flatter, quicker, and it skids on past the outside edge to clip the top of off. Too close to cut for Smith, and he cannot prevent it getting through. The momentum is with the away side now.
28.4
W
OUT! Caught. Mitchell Santner to Aaron Finch. Stock length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, outside edge to wicketkeeper, by Latham. Another one for the visitors! Lovely bowling from Santner. The spinner slows this one up a little, it grips off the surface, and Finch gets a thin nick through to the keeper. Latham doesn't get it at the first grab, but it pops up nicely for him to take it at the second attempt.
26.1
6
SIX! Lockie Ferguson to Steven Smith. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot flick, well timed in the air under control over deep backward square leg for 6 runs. That's an unbelievable stroke from Smith. He uses the pace of Ferguson, and flips this over backward square for six. Glorious.
25.3
4
FOUR! Jimmy Neesham to Aaron Finch. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, thick edge in the air uncontrolled past third man for 4 runs. A lazy shot from Finch, but he will pick up four runs anyway. He throws the bat out a long way away from the body, and a healthy edge flies away to the third man fence.
24.1
W
OUT! Caught. Lockie Ferguson to David Warner. Short, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, Spliced in the air uncontrolled to mid on, by Sodhi. Finally New Zealand get the breakthrough. The extra pace from Ferguson does the trick. Warner didn't look comfortable with that at all. He attempted to take it on, but it spooned up to mid on off the top end of the bat.
23.1
4
FOUR! Jimmy Neesham to David Warner. Back of a length, down leg side on the back foot glancing, well timed past fine leg for 4 runs. Wayward from Neesham. That was a freebie for Warner. Down the legside, and tickled off the hip to the fine leg fence.
19.4
4
FOUR! Colin de Grandhomme to David Warner. Length ball, outside off stump on the back foot Late Cut, well timed past third man for 4 runs. Excellent stroke from Warner. He lets the ball come on, plays it underneath the eyes, and slices it behind backward point for four.
18.1
6
SIX! Ish Sodhi to Aaron Finch. Leg spinner short, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, well timed in the air under control over deep mid wicket for 6 runs. A rank long hop from Sodhi, and Finch doesn't miss out. He can put this where he wants, and plants it a long way back into the empty stands.
16.4
4
FOUR! Ish Sodhi to David Warner. Leg spinner length ball, middle stump on the front foot reverse sweeping, well timed past deep backward point for 4 runs. A little risky, but Warner executes the reverse superbly. Swiped away behind square, and the sweeper cannot get round to cut it off.
15.5
4
FOUR! Colin de Grandhomme to David Warner. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, well timed past deep square leg for 4 runs. Loose delivery from de Grandhomme. A fraction too short, and Warner swats it away through square leg for his sixth boundary.
14.1
4
FOUR! Mitchell Santner to Aaron Finch. Stock length ball, off stump on the front foot sweeping, well timed past deep backward square leg for 4 runs. That's a strong sweep from Finch. He hits down on the ball, rolling the wrists, and paddling it away behind square for four.
9.6
4
FOUR! Jimmy Neesham to David Warner. Half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed in the air under control past deep extra cover for 4 runs. Fifty opening stand up in style. Overpitched by Neesham, and Warner blasts it over extra cover for a one bounce four.
9.3
4
FOUR! Jimmy Neesham to David Warner. Length ball, to leg on the front foot driving, well timed in the air under control past long on for 4 runs. Warner hits through the line this time. Not as much force than the Finch one a few balls ago, just lifted over mid on for four.
9.1
6
SIX! Jimmy Neesham to Aaron Finch. Half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed in the air under control over long on for 6 runs. That's the first sign of aggression from Finch. Wonderful strike. He gets a good stride in, and launches Neesham back over his head for a maximum.
7.4
4
FOUR! Jimmy Neesham to David Warner. Short, to leg on the back foot cutting, well timed in the air under control past third man for 4 runs. Warner throws everything at this. Width on offer, and scythed over the gully region for four.
3.3
4
FOUR! Lockie Ferguson to David Warner. Short, down leg side on the back foot pulling, well timed in the air under control past deep mid wicket for 4 runs. Warner is on the pull now. He rocks back and slams this handsomely over mid wicket. Ferguson is not getting his length right at the moment.
3.1
4
FOUR! Lockie Ferguson to Aaron Finch. Short, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, well timed in the air under control past deep mid wicket for 4 runs. Finch latches onto the short delivery, and clubs this over the legside for four. High off the bat, but a decent enough strike from the Aussie skipper.
2.6
4
FOUR! Trent Boult to David Warner. Out-swinging back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot driving, well timed past deep point for 4 runs. Warner hangs back, opens the face togo with the swing, and feeds this into the gap on the offside. Lovely timing, and the ball hits the rope for the first boundary of the day.

OUT! Caught & Bowled. Pat Cummins to Trent Boult. Short, outside off stump backing away pulling, top edge in the air uncontrolled to silly point, by Cummins. It's all over.

He manages to somehow get on top of the bounce, and whips the hands through the ball. Smacked through mid wicket for four.
35.3
W
OUT! Caught. Adam Zampa to Colin de Grandhomme. Leg spinner half volley, off stump on the front foot flick, in the air uncontrolled to long on, by Starc. That will probably be game over with that wicket. De Grandhomme looks like he is giving some catching practice here. Didn't seem like he tried to clear the ropes, just gently chipped it into long on's hands. Very soft.
32.3
W
OUT! Caught. Josh Hazlewood to Tom Latham. Short, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to deep square leg, by Short. The drinks break has worked for the hosts. Latham was going so well, but now picks out the man in the deep. Struck fairly nicely, but not enough to clear the ropes. Short takes a regulation chance at deep square.
31.5
4
FOUR! Adam Zampa to Tom Latham. Leg spinner back of a length, to leg on the back foot pulling, well timed in the air under control past deep mid wicket for 4 runs. Latham picks up the length so quickly, and his feet are just as fast. He springs back, and bludgeons it over the legside for four.
31.4
4
FOUR! Adam Zampa to Tom Latham. Leg spinner half volley, middle stump down the track driving, well timed in the air under control past long off for 4 runs. Lovely use of the feet from Latham now. He dances down to the pitch, and lofts it over mid off for four.
31.2
4
FOUR! Adam Zampa to Colin de Grandhomme. Leg spinner half volley, wide outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed in the air under control past deep extra cover for 4 runs. Tossed up high and thrown out wide. De Grandhomme wanted a piece of this, so cracked it over extra cover for a one bounce four.
30.2
4
FOUR! Josh Hazlewood to Tom Latham. Length ball, down leg side down the track Slog, well timed in the air under control past deep mid wicket for 4 runs. Latham charges down to Hazlewood, and hoicks this away to cow corner for four. Nice footwork and timing. He's been the most fluent of the Kiwi batsmen so far.
29.6
4
FOUR! Mitchell Starc to Colin de Grandhomme. Yorker, down leg side on the front foot glancing, well timed past fine leg for 4 runs. Fired down the legside, and de Grandhomme gets a little bit of something on this. The ball races away past the dive of the keeper, and hits the rope in no time.
27.6
4
FOUR! Mitchell Starc to Colin de Grandhomme. Short, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, well timed in the air under control past fine leg for 4 runs. Nice stroke from de Grandhomme. He makes sure he gets inside the line, and helps the ball on its way to the fine leg fence.
24.6
W
OUT! Caught. Pat Cummins to Jimmy Neesham. Short, down leg side on the back foot Fended, Spliced in the air uncontrolled to wicketkeeper, by Carey. New Zealand are crumbling to defeat here. A nasty delivery from Cummins, and Neesham doesn't know how to deal with it. He flaps at the ball, which lobs up off the shoulder of the bat, and Carey jogs in to take a very simple catch.
24.1
4
FOUR! Pat Cummins to Tom Latham. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed past deep point for 4 runs. Wide, driven on the up and in the air, but Latham finds the gap to pick up four. A nice flow to that shot.
23.3
6
SIX! Steven Smith to Jimmy Neesham. Off break full toss, outside off stump on the front foot Slog, well timed in the air under control over deep mid wicket for 6 runs. Huge full toss from Smith, which will happen with a part timer. Neesham takes full advantage of it, pumping the ball over mid wicket for six.
22.2
W
OUT! Caught. Pat Cummins to Martin Guptill. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot cutting, to backward point, by Smith. It goes to hand this time. Guptill flings the bat at this, doesn't get on top of the bounce, and just slices it into the hands of Smith at backward point. A very smart take diving to his left with both hands. Australia continue to take wickets.
22.1
4
FOUR! Pat Cummins to Martin Guptill. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot driving, well timed past deep extra cover for 4 runs. Chipped over extra cover's head. Not entirely convincing from Guptill, but he crunches it off the back foot away to the boundary.
20.3
W
OUT! Caught. Mitchell Marsh to Ross Taylor. Length ball, outside off stump down the track driving, to mid on, by Starc. That's tame from Taylor. He hasn't been at the crease long, but really wanted to get a move on. He shimmies down trying to clear the infield, but ends up shanking it into mid on's hands. The hosts are firmly on top.
19.2
W
OUT! Bowled. Adam Zampa to Kane Williamson. Googly length ball, outside off stump on the front foot working, missed to. Magic delivery from Adam Zampa. That's a gorgeous bit of spin bowling. The googly isn't picked, it turns back through the gate, and pegs back the middle pole. Not much Williamson can do about that. Far too good from the leggie.
17.3
6
SIX! Adam Zampa to Martin Guptill. Googly, on the front foot driving, well timed in the air under control over long on for 6 runs. Wrong'un picked, and Guptill deposits this back over the legspinner's head for a maximum. Finally a clean hit from the New Zealand opener. It has been a long time coming.
14.3
4
FOUR! Mitchell Marsh to Kane Williamson. Length ball, outside off stump down the track driving, well timed in the air under control past long on for 4 runs. A rare boundary! Williamson advances, smears this over mid on's head, and the timing is good enough to reach the fence.

OUT! Caught. Josh Hazlewood to Henry Nicholls. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, outside edge to wicketkeeper, by Carey. Nicked and gobbled up by the keeper. Nicholls goes for a full blooded drive, but gets a healthy nick behind. It only just carries to Carey, who takes a good low catch. Australia have deserved that. They have bowled well in this first ten.
