Australia vs New Zealand 3rd ODI Highlights

Watch cricket highlights of the 3rd ODI – Australia vs New Zealand – played at the SCG, Sydney.

Scoreline: Australia 301. Brad Haddin 109. Mike Hussey 51 (32), Michael Clarke 64. NZ: 269 all out. Grant Elliott 115, Brendon McCullum 36 (27).

After the failed experiment with Clarke as captain in the 2nd ODI, good sense prevailed and Ricky Ponting was rushed back for this game. Haddin was pushed up in place of Warner and it came off, with super strikes all around. Mike Hussey got into T20 sort of attack mode towards the end of the game.

With a target of over 300, and no McCullum at the top (shoulder injury sustained during play), NZ were probably counting on Ross Taylor magic, which skipped this game. Elliott who had a role to play in the 2nd ODI got to a 100 but the NZ run-chase was stifled by a buoyant Aussie performance, that harked back to their glorious run as world champs.
