New Zealand take field with pacer Lockie Ferguson, as they face Australia in the first ODI of Chappell-Hadlee Trophy 2016 at Sydney Cricket Ground. Ferguson made appearance in only eight List A and 22 First-Class matches so far. It is his performance in the recent Plukett Shield that got him into the squad against Australia. The bowler is capable of generating good pace and made a successful debut, getting a set David Warner out for 24 in his very first over he bowled in international cricket for New Zealand in the match on Sunday.

Ferguson did not have a great start to the over, though. His first ball was hit straight down the ground for a four. Warner looked to put the debutant under pressure, putting in a lot of power in the shot to add some pressure over Ferguson. The bowler, however, maintained a consistent pace around 150 kmph throughout. As Warner looked to scythe the ball to third-man off the last delivery of the 10th over, he chopped it onto the stumps. Warner was dismissed for 24.
