Australia 149 for 7 (Healy 46, Kasperek 3-24) beat new Zealand 128 of 9 in 21 runs (Schutt 2-22, Wareham 2-25)
Prior to this match, a non-negligible debate about whether Australia’s world record ODI streak would be hindered without results due to the weather during the hours of waiting caused by a sustained shower on Mount Maunganui. There wasn’t. Like most possible concerns about the fate of this team, they didn’t take long to become academic.
In Bay Oval, the sky was clear enough to cause more than 25 truncated incidents in a greasy state, just as the theoretical conversation of no results soared. The delayed and shortened contest helped change Australia’s batting lineup and switch from ODI to Twenty20 mode.
But the result wasn’t different, as Meg Lanning’s team once again showed too many influential performers for New Zealand to deal with, despite another amazing spell from New Zealand. Lee Casperek Pick 3 Australians in 5 ball spaces.
Her efforts were more than comparable to Australian spinners Georgia Wareham, Jess Jonasen and Ash Gardner.
