Australia beat New Zealand by 19 Runs in T20 Final


Australia clinched the T20 tri-series against New Zealand today after cruising to a 19-run victory in the rain-affected final at Auckland. The result means Australia notch up convincing wins in all their five matches against New Zealand and England.

It also means Australia leapfrog Pakistan to become the top-rated T20 team in the world. This will be the first time for Australia to hold the number one spot since rankings were introduced in 2011.

In today’s T-20 final, New Zealand scored 150 for nine in stipulated 20 overs after electing to bat first. Australia’s bowlers tore through New Zealand’s middle order, led by spinner Ashton Agar’s career-best T20 figures of three for 27.

Ross Taylor’s 43 off 38 balls was the highlight of a poor New Zealand batting display. In reply, Australia scored 121 for 3 in 14.4 overs when rain disrupted play. Officials decided to abandon the match due to persistent rain, awarding Australia a 19-run win under the Duckworth-Lewis system.
