Perfect Australia win T20 tri-series

Australia completed their domination of the T20 tri-series, beating New Zealand in the final by 19 runs (on Duckworth-Lewis method) at Auckland’s Eden Park.

Bowling first, Ashton Agar (3/27), Kane Richardson (2/30) and Andrew Tye (2/30) restricted New Zealand to 9/150. Ross Taylor (43 not out off 38 balls) top scored for New Zealand.

D’arcy Short (50 off 30) and David Warner (25 off 23) compiled 72 for the first wicket as Australia reached 3/121 in 14.4 overs before rain ended play. Australia were far enough ahead on the DL method.

Australia won all five games in the T20 tri-series, beating New Zealand by seven wickets (Sydney), England by five wickets (Hobart) and seven wickets (Melbourne), and New Zealand by five wickets (Wellington) and in the final. New Zealand qualified for the final on net run rate over England (with one win each). Australia’s Wellington win was incredible, chasing New Zealand’s 6/243 with seven balls left.
