Australia vs New Zealand Live Score and Commentary

Steve Smith ruled the roost at his home ground to hand Australia a 68-run victory over New Zealand. First the Australian captain shone with the bat courtesy of his career-best ODI score after being given not one, not two, but three chances.

Then it was in the field, where he took a stunning catch to dismiss BJ Watling and completely overshadow Martin Guptill, who brought up his 11th ODI century and became the fastest Kiwi to score 5,000 ODI runs.
