AUS v NZ, Twenty20, Sydney: Australia beat New Zealand by a run in T20 thriller

Brendon McCullum's sizzling 61 off 47 balls went in vain as Australia bowled exceptionally well at the death to eke out a thrilling one run victory in the see-saw one-off Twenty20 International cricket match at Sydney.
Chasing 151, New Zealand came close to overwhelming the target before losing McCullum at a crucial juncture and eventually finishing at 149 for five wickets. Needing 14 runs off the last over of the bowling of Nathan Bracken, Nathan McCullum (10 not out) -- Brendon's elder brother -- hit a four and a six off the last two balls but that was still not enough in the end.
Earlier, a Brad Haddin-led Australia got off to a brisk start before losing momentum and it took useful contributions from David Hussey (41), Adam Voges (26) and David Warner (23) to reach a modest total of 150 for seven. Chasing 151, New Zealand got off to a wobbly start after Peter Siddle removed in-form Martin Guptill (0) and Peter Fulton (1) off successive overs to reduce the visitors to 12 for two.
However, Brendon McCullum and Neil Broom (36) steadied the rocking Kiwi boat with a 61-run stand in eight-odd overs which put the visitors back on the track.

AUS v NZ, 5th ODI, Brisbane: Australia retain Chappell-Hadlee trophy after washout (AUS 2:2)

A washed out Gabba in Brisbane has denied New Zealand a maiden ODI series win in Australia.
Brad Haddin (88) had given Ricky Ponting's team a chance after guiding them to 168-4 from 22 overs, with Martin Guptill (64 not out) looking to ease the tourists past their target.
But the hosts retain the Chappell-Hadlee trophy owing to their 2-0 series win in 2007 after umpires Steve Bucknor and Rod Tucker pulled the plug when the heavens opened.
New Zealand had been set a target of 156 off 20 overs but torrential rain saw them stopped short at 123-6 off 14 overs with the series poised at 2-2.
As they had not reached the prerequisite 20 overs the Duckworth-Lewis rule could not be applied, granting the series win to the Aussies.

AUS v NZ, 4th ODI, Adelaide Oval: Hussey brothers help Australia level series (AUS 2:2)

Twin half centuries from David Hussey (79) and elder brother Michael (75 not out) fashioned Australia's six-wicket victory against New Zealand in the fourth ODI as the hosts recorded their second successive win to level the five-match cricket series 2-2, at Adelaide today.
Chasing 245, Australia lost Michael Clarke (14) and Ricky Ponting (15) inside 15 overs but the Hussey brothers and Brad Haddin (43) made useful contributions with the bat as the hosts cruised to 247 for four in 48.2 overs.
Earlier, Ross Taylor's 71-ball 76 and Martin Guptill's 70-ball 45 helped New Zealand post a modest 244 for eight in their 50 overs after captain Daniel Vettori had won the toss and decided to bat first. Both the teams now move to Brisbane for the series decider on Friday.

Earlier, for Australia it was the wicketkeeper, Brad Haddin who took the charge in batting making a stylish 109, which was well supported by half centuries of captain Michael Clarke (64) and Mike Hussey (51).
Nathan Bracken, Ben Hilfenhaus and Craig White grabbed two wickets each for Australia to cut short the Kiwi run chase. New Zealand bowlers maintained a good line and length but couldnt manage to stop the flow of runs from the Aussie batsman. O Brien was the pick of the bowler, taking three wickets while Kyle Mills and Grant Elliot scalped two each.

Australia slid to their fifth consecutive defeat at home. The home side’s 226 total was a competitive target on a slow pitch but New Zealand paced their innings brilliantly.
The Kiwis started patiently and McCullum (43) was involved in two 40-plus partnerships with Fulton and Taylor (47) to ensure his team didn’t lose early wickets.
Taylor then added 72 with Elliot, but despite his dismissal, New Zealand were always in the hunt. Warner gave good support to Elliot, who made an unbeaten 61, and helped see his team through to a victory and a 2-0 lead. Earlier, Australia made 225 runs for loss of five wickets.
Michael Clarke was declared the Man of the Match for his 98.

Australia's misery continued with New Zealand on Sunday pipping them by two wickets to clinch a low-scoring thriller and take a 1-0 lead in the five-match ODI cricket series.
Chasing a victory target of 182, New Zealand huffed and puffed before Ross Taylor (64) propped them up. Needing five runs off the last over, the Kiwis levelled the score in the fifth ball before captain Daniel Vettori hit the winning run off the last delivery from Nathan Bracken.
Earlier, after Australia captain Ricky Ponting had decided to bat first, Kiwi spearhead Kyle Mills (4/35) and his bowling colleagues skittled out the hosts for 181 in 48.4 overs.
