NZ won the toss and sent Aus into bat.

It seemed like a good call early on by flemming with gilly out off the second ball.

Then Hayden and ponting put on a 99 run partnership. Ponting got his 50 and was runs out just recently. Hayden has 40.

Aussies 2/99 off 16.1

Went and watched the last five overs on Foxtel in the staff room! Aussies 6 for 313, Hussey hit a six off the last ball!

Should be a good run chase!

Aussies ended up flogging them.

Hayden a beautiful century.

Hussey and Clarke played good at the end both striking 150+

Bowlers spreading the wickets evenly.

Lee 2/28 (8) - very economical

McGrath 2/41 (7.5)

Usually the other way round - little doubt Lee is our second best bowler at the moment in the ODI arena

I was in a corporate box CW so wasn't out amongst it.

All seemed to be in good fun with the crowd really. Everyone agrees all the crap after game 1 was bull**** about the crowd,including the Australians.

McGraths own words were "no problems' with the crowd in Wellington

McGrath was the reason the game was stopped Fluffy. Australian management and ICC match ref Clive Lloyd have said it is a media beat up as well.

Although apparently a security guard did call McGrath a wanker hahaha

So Katich had a few words to say to that section of the crowd over nothing, I highly doubt it.

Volley,do you expect crowds to sit on their hands and keep their mouth shut when oppostion are right in front of them ?

I am sure you do that at Brookvale right :roll:

No need to be smart Kiwi :) , all I know is that Katich would have heard alot in his playing days, and for him to fire up, it must have been worse than he's heard. He then got bottles thrown at him after he took that catch.

I think I also heard Hayden say that the crowd was one of the worst he'd played at, which doesn't mean much to me, because i'm not the biggest fan of Hayden.

I was at the Gabba when all the yobbo's were abusing Murali, and I didn't like it, so don't pull out that Sh!t.

The Aussie management have said no problem here,so that is good enough for me.

Players lose their cool unexpectedly sometimes,like Slater in India a few years back.

The Hayden comment holds nothing for me personally,considering his own crowds threw a chicken at Pat Symcox in 97 :D
