David Warner, Mitchell Starc incredible performances hand Australia a perfect win, Australia clinch the Chappell-Hadlee trophy

Riding high on the century from the explosive Aussie opener and former Australian captain, David Warner Australia managed to give a white wash to New Zealand. Also with this win they grabbed the Chappell-Hadlee trophy back which they had lost to New Zealand at the start of this year.

Australia put upon a total of 265 and was successful in defending this total at the Melbourne cricket ground as Mitchell stark proved quite a hefty customer for the visitors to handle. Stark bowled lethal deliveries and managed to take 3 wickets after giving 34 runs in his 10 overs. He was well supported by the Australian fast bowlers namely Faulkner, Cummins and T Head who took 2 wickets each. Hazel-wood also managed to get 1 wicket in his 7 overs.

New Zealand on the other hand failed to impress everyone and after suffering defeat from India in the ODI series handed over the series easily to the Aussies without showing any significant resistance. Martin Guptill was the only batsman that was in form but his single handed fight couldn’t save the series for them.

After winning the toss, Aussies decide to bat first and lost early wickets of Aron finch and Skipper Steve smith. Warner kept Australia in the game by scoring a fine century and was there till the last bowl of the innings to ensure that the host put on a decent total, which ended by scoring 264/8.

New Zealand in order to chase down this total, needed Martin Guptill or Kane Williamson to fire big but neither of them managed to do so hence failed to chase down the total and merely managed to reach a total of 147 runs suffering a 117 runs defeat at the hands of the Aussies.

Martin Guptill, the lone fighter for New Zealand

New Zealand looked well in the hunt early, when Tom Latham was timing the ball well and Martin Guptill was ably supporting him. But later Latham gave a soft dismissal, Kane Williamson missed a straight delivery and Guptill too throwing his wicket in Lamentable fashion. With the top three returning to the pavilion, it was only a matter of time as other were struggling against the Australian pacers. In the end the Australian registered a 117 run big win and clinched the series.
