Australia vs New Zealand Live Score and Commentary

Australia displayed an aggressive brand of cricket right throughout the Border-Gavaskar series and New Zealand just had no answer to it. David Warner and Steve Smith were the pillars for the hosts in all three games with the bat in hand while Mitchell Starc and co. shined with the ball as the hosts completed a 3-0 whitewash.

The summer will carry on for the Aussies with the arrival of Pakistan for a three-match Test series, starting next week in Brisbane, which will be a day/night encounter.

New Zealand on the other hand head home for a T20I series against Bangladesh.
