Scores: Australia 181. New Zealand chase goes down to the last ball, with 1 run required to win. Vettori steers a four.

With Kyle Mills getting among the wickets and Mike Hussey and Brad Haddin having to perform a slow rebuild, Aus couldn't take advantage of the batting powerplay. They were however in the game strongly while bowling after taking quick early wickets. However Ross Taylor's knock coupled with a scrambled end by NZ ensured a tight game that went in the Kiwis' favour.

Pregame: Shaun Tait comes in place of Hilfenhaus. Ricky Ponting won the toss and opted to bat against a New Zealand side missing Jacob Oram and Scott Styris due to injury.
