Australia defeated New Zealand in the 1st ODI by two wickets

Australia defeated New Zealand by two wickets in the 1st ODI of the Chappell-Hadlee Trophy. Cameron Green was awarded the man of the match for his 89 runs not-out innings in 92 balls.

Australia won the Chappell-Hadlee series’ opening match excitingly because Cameron Green, who entered the game following a top-order collapse, maintained his coolness during a late wobble, and battled through painful cramps.

Green and Alex Carey Show

Carey & Green | Australia

When Australia had 31 to win and everything seemed to be going their way, Carey pulled to mid-on, Glenn Maxwell and Mitchell Starc left, and Green was left struggling to go between the wickets.

There was a long break while the physio attended to him, and then Adam Zampa played a crucial role in relieving some of the pressure.

However, there was still one more touch of late drama when a light shower scudded around across the field. In the end, Lockie Ferguson’s pretty unimpressive wide decided the match.

Green finished with the best score of 89 runs in his ODI career.
