New Zealand Trashes Australia 3-0 in the Chappel-Hadlee Trophy

New Zealand has just walloped Australia 3-0, in the concluding game of the Chappel-Hadlee trophy today.

Needing to chase an unbelievable 347, contributed largely by a superb 181 by Mathew Hayden, they chased it down with 3 balls to spare with Nathan Bracken being the culprit - sending down two full toss balls to help the Black Caps finish the game and complete the white wash against the Aussies for the first time.

Australia have another injury worry - Mathew Hayden has a fracture in his big toe and will need to see doctors on when he can resume playing.

Well played New Zealand. You have now opened up the race to the World Cup.
