After the Aussie batsmen smashed the bowlers all around, the New Zealand batters put up a brave front with Martin Guptill leading the chase. The Kiwis raced up to 37 in 4 overs before Kane Williamson was caught by Brad Haddin behind the wickets off Nathan Coulter-Nile for 17.
It was Guptill who kept the run flow on, and along with skipper Brendon McCullum, the duo put on 61 in five overs. McCullum was dismissed for am 18-ball 37.
Needing 17 in the last two over with Anderson and Ronchi, New Zealand fancied their chances. Both fell to Mitchell Starc in the same over to give the Aussies a chance to snatch the game back.
Yet New Zealand had James Neesham and Anton Devcich to score six from the last over, but the batsmen just couldn’t keep their calm as Neesham was dismissed on the first ball while Devcich was run-out.
