NZ vs Aus 1st T20: Conway slams 59-balls 99; NZ thrash Aus by 53 runs

NZ vs Aus 1st T20 Highlights: Conway slams 59-balls 99; New Zealand thrash Australia by 53 runs- Devon Conway starred with a quickfire 99 as New Zealand registered a comprehensive win to start off this 5-game T20I series against their Trans-Tasman rivals. On the contrary, it was a very timid performance from the Aussies and they have a task cut out before the second T20I.

Chasing 185, Australia needed a solid start but what they got was anything but a solid start. They lost 4 wickets inside the Powerplay with very few runs on the board and when that happens in a big chase it is difficult to fightback. No one except Marsh showed any fight and his 45 was the only shining light in an otherwise abysmal chase.

NZ vs Aus 1st T20 Highlights: Ish Sodhi claims 4 scalps; Kiwi bowlers shine

Excellent bowling display from the Kiwis as they were right on the money from the get-go as their swing kings, Southee and Boult got them off to a perfect start with 2 wickets each in the Powerplay. Jamieson was a little expensive for his wicket. Sodhi and Santner came in at a very good time to bowl and the leggie finished with 4/28 from his 4. Overall it was a brilliant bowling display all around.

Earlier in the evening, New Zealand were asked to bat. They were off to a horrible start but Australia were treated to a Conway show. His unbeaten 99 with some solid support from Phillips and Neesham saw the hosts finish with 184. A score that was too good for the tourists to scale.
