AUSTRALIA WIN

Australia has won a rain-affected match by seven wickets.

The home side was set 95 off 90 balls after quality fast bowling from Billy Stanlake and AJ Tye kept New Zealand to just 9-117.

Stanlake (3-15) removed both Kiwi openers with his first two deliveries, and Tye (4-23) swept up the tail, after Dave Warner won the toss and sent the visitors in.

The rain arrived during the innings break, with the Duckworth/Lewis system leaving Australia 95 to chase off 15 overs.

Chris Lynn (44) and Glenn Maxwell (40*) led Australia home without too much fuss.
