1st ODI: New Zealand set a target of 233 runs for Australia

Australia require 233 to win this first of three Trans-Tasman ODIs.

Trent Boult comes out to biff an ungainly four and creak the total past 230.

It is fair to say a lot has happened since Australia and New Zealand’s men last went toe-to-toe on a cricket field.

The two sides met at the SCG in early 2020 in an eerie game that had the spectre of the pandemic looming large all around it.

The game began (under lights in Aus) at 2:20 pm local time and 4:20 pm NZST.
