Australia beat Kiwis in Tri-Series final

Australia beat Kiwis in Tri-Series final

Rain has robbed Kiwi cricket fans of a grandstand Twenty20 tri-series final finish, with the heavens opening over Eden Park on Wednesday and handing Australia a 19-run win over New Zealand via the Duckworth-Lewis method.

The introduction of Agar (3-27) further dented New Zealand's momentum as he claimed the wickets of Kane Williamson (9), Mark Chapman (8) and Colin de Grandhomme (10) in his first two overs to reduce the hosts to 92 for five at the halfway mark.

Opting to bat first, New Zealand struggled to 150 for the loss of nine wickets with Ross Taylor's (43 n o, 38b, 2×4, 1×6) unbeaten knock being the highlight of the innings.

Australia ended the series unbeaten while New Zealand and England, which begin a five-match one-day global series on Sunday, had one win each.

"It's probably one of those grounds where you should be able to have five (fielders) out straight away, as it doesn't really matter", he said. New Zealand have lost their last two games and will be looking for a reversal in form to clinch the series.

Former Australian skipper Allan Border has advocated for David Warner to take over the T20 captaincy from Steve Smith on a permanent basis, saying it's the smartest move to ensure Smith stays fresher for longer.

"It's provided some awesome moments for New Zealand cricket and the teams that we've been involved in, and when you throw that into the mix, it does make it enjoyable". However, the second time, when Australia were at 121 for three in 14.4 overs, the umpires made a decision to call it a day and the game was handed over to the Kangaroos, who were ahead by 19 runs via the D/L method.

Taylor and Ish Sodhi combined for a 38-run partnership but it was too late to revive the innings.

"We always try to coach the guys at training to start well with your first six [deliveries], and we try to make it game-scenarios as much as we can in the nets where they try to execute their best ball".

Colin Munro went next.

Glenn Maxwell (20no) and Aaron Finch (18no) steadied the ship before heavy showers forced play to be abandoned.

"I have no problem with that as a scenario going forward as we play more and more worldwide T20 cricket".

Andrew Tye has been impressive with the ball for Australia, with eight wickets, while Trent Boult has also picked up eight wickets for New Zealand.
