New Zealand vs Australia, Tri-series Final in Auckland, Highlights

Australia won the tri-series and marched towards the top of the T20 international rankings second only to Pakistan after winning all five matches in the series

Australia take on New Zealand in the Tri-Series final, live on Sky Sports Cricket, knowing that a win will see them rise to the top of the Twenty20 world rankings.

Australia a 19-run win over New Zealand via the Duckworth-Lewis method. But despite David Warner, made captain of the team, having a lean run in the first three matches with runs of 6, 4 and 2, Australia were unstoppable.

New Zealand failed to recover and kept losing regular wickets but Ross Taylor's valiant innings and Ish Sodi's resilience took them to 150/9. "The clarity and roles that these individuals have at Big Bash level can (also) be executed on the worldwide stage".

Australia's bowlers, led by Ashton Agar's 3 for 27, restricted New Zealand to 150 for 9.

Border said Warner's aggressive instincts make him the ideal man to replace Smith in the job.

He deceived Kane Williamson as the New Zealand captain tried to force the pace in the eighth over; that was followed two balls later by Mark Chapman lbw attempting to sweep. Billy Stanlake provided a breakthrough in the fourth over as Guptill departed for 21, sending the shot straight to Warner.

"We had another good start but I thought through the middle, we didn't assess as well as we could have", Williamson said.

After a subdued Ashes and a struggle in the opening games, David Warner rediscovered his joie de vivre at Auckland with 59 from 24 balls, where D'Arcy Short's free-spirited walloping alongside him no doubt reminded him of his own T20 origins.

A 38-run ninth-wicket partnership from 36 balls offered some solace as Sodhi provided Taylor with stability.

Lynn left the ground in the hands of trainers midway through New Zealand's innings at Eden Park after diving in the field and landing awkwardly on his right shoulder. That became an issue when the Australians found themselves 84-3 with just over 10 overs gone but they quickly recovered. Short dismissively swatted three early on to ease Australia on to the front foot as they hunted down a fifth successive win that gave them the trophy as well as taking them second in the ICC rankings - a remarkable turnaround, given they started the month languishing at No. 7.

Guptill & Munro- These two have been in great form and we all know what they did against the Aussies a few nights ago.
