Boult bowls NZ to Chappell-Hadlee series win over Australia

Before stepping out for training with his Australia team-mates, Maxwell fired some questions at Latham and to the New Zealander's credit he dealt with them in his stride.

When New Zealand reached 176 for two in the 36th over, Taylor and Dean Brownlie had set the stage for a big finish and a score in excess of 300 beckoned.

The friendliness of the interactions between the antipodean rivals will surely fade away on Sunday with New Zealand looking to reclaim the Chappell-Hadlee trophy and Australia needing a win to tie the series and thereby retain the silverware. Finch and Head steadied the ship briefly before departing for 56 and 53 respectively, with the remainder of the Australian middle-order quickly falling over.

Kane Williamson (37, 42b, 5x4) put in a decent knock but the star of New Zealand's batting was no doubt Ross Taylor (107, 101b, 13x4) as his superb innings was crucial for New Zealand as the batsmen after him in Neil Broom (8, 12b), Colin Munro (3, 9b) and James Neesham (1, 7b) failed to get going with the bat. New Zealand lost their 9 wickets in complete 50 overs and scored 281 runs. The feats continued for the Black Caps as Brownlie brought his maiden ODI fifty in the 27th over.

"I'd do it again, I just wouldn't hit off the toe next time", Finch said.

The pace spearhead sealed the victory by claiming tail-enders Adam Zampa and Josh Hazlewood in the 47th over to bowl Australia out for 257.

Barcelona qualify for 7th consecutive Copa del Rey semi-finals
The upside of Barcelona and Atletico Madrid squaring off in the semis is that they'll play twice, as opposed to the one-off final. In the midweek quarter-final Barcelona completed a 6-2 aggregate rout of Real Sociedad while Atletico beat Eibar 5-2.

Mitchell Santner picked up two wickets and Captain Williamson picked up a wicket and it was an important one of Aaron Finch.

The trend continued as Head and Faulkner (0) fell within five balls of one another and when Marcus Stoinis (42) departed, the match appeared over.

Yesterday's win wrapped up the Chappell-Hadlee series 2-0 to New Zealand, meaning the trophy is heading back to this side of the Tasman.
