That was a Baz innings to the last. Exciting, by turns elegant and ugly, and snuffed out earlier than you wish.

Guppy's looking solid so far. Hope Kane has a better time of it today than he has had so far this series.

Damnit Kane remains out of sorts. What's happened? He didn't struggle against Australia last year. I guess everyone has a dip now and then though.

Guppy needs a big one here and Nicholls to dig in. I'm worried about exposing this middle order.

Surely this is the last we'll see of Ronchi? He had to perform today. He's only passed fifty four times in ODIs - one of those for Australia. Ever since his blistering 170 n.o. in January 2015, he has only reached the 40s once and the 30s twice.

OH AND FUCK THERE GOES ELLIOTT.

It was looking like we'd make 290, but with those two quick wickets I'll now be pleased if we pass 270.

What a weird innings. Completely fallen apart here. Wonder if it'll be a tough pitch to bat on. Interested to see how we go.

This is turning into a disaster. Milne really should've reviewed.

But yeah apparently the highest chase at Hamilton is 288.

Oh flipping fucking shitbricks. 15 balls. 9 runs. 5 wickets. And we're all out for 246.

Can't see Australia losing this. Mediocre farewell for Baz.

Ross Taylor can't come back soon enough.

Yet another series flop for NZ against Australia.

This could be game on yet. Australia 3/94 with their review wasted and Khawaja, Warner, and Smith all back in the shed.

Please please please let our hopelessly depleted bowling attack pull this off. It'll be a real stunner given we're without Boult and Southee (our first-choice pacemen), McClenaghan (who may be third choice on his day, at least until Henry took his opportunity by the horns), and Santner (who is somehow our best spinner right now).

MAKE THAT 4/94 WITH MAXWELL BACK IN THE SHED TOO!

If it rains right now, New Zealand will win on D/L. OPEN THE HEAVENS.

Haha. He... has not been great previously, let's say, but geez he shone just then.

I'm sure opinion will differ widely, but the Marsh situation:

Dangerous precedent to set to say that an umpire can refer a decision to the 3rd umpire AFTER a reply is shown on the big screen. A decision was made, then the crowd got upset at the replay. In no circumstance do the rules allow for the review of a decision over video on the ground prior to referring to the umpire. If it was a New Zealand review, it was accepted after the 15 seconds.

Not saying the 'correct' decision wasn't made, but the process itself was dangerously broken to get there. What will stop anyone waiting on the field for a video replay before demanding the umpires review a contentious call? Why didn't the umpire send the Warner LBW upstairs after finding out he got it wrong? That would have been a call made to reverse an on field decision after video evidence was received on ground independent of a player review - exactly what happened with Marsh.

Notwithstanding the post above, NZ have been very good today to claw back into the game.

My thoughts about Australia's top order have been no secret - a faltering Bailey and Glen Maxwell as 4 and 5 is the weakest our ODI team has ever looked, and they will always get in trouble if they lose 2 early wickets. Sure, they will score 400 every now and then on roads when they get on top. But they can't beat good teams on evenly matched wickets with those two where they are.

On another note, I'm absolutely baffled Guptill wasn't picked up in the IPL auction.

And a few others too. Guptill especially given his T20I form, and everybody seemed to think that his form was eyecatching enough.

NO FUCKING WAY WHAT A RESULT. I went out to dinner because I didn't feel like watching us lose and every phone update had me in disbelief. What fight. What a team.

And yeah Guppy and Khawaja should have gone for megabucks in the IPL auction. Mystifying that they did not. I've read some speculation that Guppy was overlooked because he is weak against spin, but come on.
