New Zealand vs Australia 5th T20 Review: Asked to bowl first, New Zealand bowlers did a good enough job to restrict the Aussie batsmen from bulk scoring. Australians could only manage to post a modest total of 142 runs despite getting the start. It wasn’t going to be enough to stop the Kiwi batsmen from surmounting it. Openers, Guptill and Conway came out all guns blazing and completely thrashed out Australia from the game within the first 10 overs of their innings. Soon after, a couple of quick wickets went down but that didn’t bother NZ much as Glen Phillips did the rest of the work in a jiffy and sealed the series 3-2 for the host team.
NZ- 143/3 in 15.3 overs. New Zealand trumps Australia in the series decider by 7 wickets.

AUS- 142/8 in 20 overs. New Zealand needs 143 runs to win.
Australia didn’t have the best of the starts after winning the toss. Aaron Finch lost his new batting partner, Josh Philippe early in the innings. Then both Finch and Wade stitched up a good partnership and were cruising towards a competitive total. But soon after the captain’s departure, Aussie innings went nowhere as they kept losing wickets one after the other and saw themselves short of 7 runs of the 150 mark. New Zealand bowlers did a good job to put a lid on the scoring rate and ensured that NZ was in the driving seat after the end of 1st innings. It was up to the Kiwi batsmen to finish off the series in some fashion.
