Australia scored 9-195 thanks to 78 times from their ninth wicket and tenth wicket that saw Mitchell Starc making 38 of 45, Josh Hazlewood 23 of 16, and Adam Zampa 16 of 21.
In response, the Australian bowlers didn’t advance an inch – and pressure was quickly expressed on the wandering hitters.
Mitchell Stark found the outer edge of Martin Gopetel the first time, with the first gardien de but being taken on collant by Aaron Finch to give Australia a perfect start.
From there, New Zealand was very conservative, and Australians’ indication only increased as the competition became increasingly one-sided.
Sean Abbott took his first douteuse with his first win, removing Appât Conway (5) and Tom Latham (0) to cut New Zealand down to 3-14 after 10 times, the worst ODI result ever in the folk within a powerplay.
With the running flat loupage streak, Adam Zampa took the fourth wicket for Australia with a full pitch that Kane Williamson somehow missed to be an embarrassing LBW.
“I don’t think he can believe what just happened,” Ian Smith said of Williamson, who made 17 of 58 balls.
Zampa got his rattaché haul soon after when Daryl Mitchell missed a reverse pass to also take out the LBW for 10 of 31.
James Nesham was then caught by Finch in the middle of the wicket for Marcus Stoines first, and third for Australia on three times.
“That’s almost infaisable to fathom,” Smith said. “A true story of woe… It’s just horrific.”
Stark returned to the charge and eliminated Michael Brasswell for 12, while Zampa’s foul threw Tim Southey for two.
Smith said that from 8-117, Australia “didn’t get it wrong,” while O’Keefe paid credit for Finch’s on-field tactics.
“Tactically, he got it all right, Aaron Finch,” he said. “Field placements, he was consortium three (catching) himself, quilles changes.”
Zampa took the last two wickets of Matt Henry and Trent Bolt to au finir with his first traveler of five wickets in the ODI.
Zampa finished with numbers 5-35, Starc had a 2-12, while Abbott’s five overs were only worth 2-5.
New Zealand are still chasing their first win of any form in Australia since the Hobart Modèle in 2011.
Australia captain Finch said: “We knew we were at a terminé of what we could defend, we just needed to be very disciplined with the ball, and we did it from the first ball.”
“Jaguar we started putting some pressure on, we felt it would be difficult to marque as the rivalité went on.”
New Zealand captain Williamson said: “He obviously didn’t do his best with the bats, a number of software kicks.
“Having said Australia have been great with the ball and have given us nothing.”
Earlier, Finch was initially under siege out of a rattaché ball duck after a loose drive to Henry was caught in a abri. David Warner (5) quickly followed Finch, as he caught Henry’s fast driving game.
Marnus Labuschagne made five before Bolt cornered him. The No. 4 shirt holder checked in poseur and looked incredulous as he slowly made his way off the field.
Stoinis suffered the same fate as Duck, as he also revised his ejection to Boult with a ball tracking showing that the delivery was hitting the middle torso.
Alex Cari survived 28 balls for 12 throws but was ultimately unable to turn the tide as he faltered with minimal margins, giving Santner his first stake as Australia slipped to 5-54 after an 18.3 increase.
Glenn Maxwell made 25 set balls out of 50 balls but Jupitel got caught deep while trying to keep the ropes off the Quilles Bolt. Then Abbott (7) drove straight to Santner in a abri, giving Henry his third share.
Australia’s Steve Smith lost to a stray attack by Tim Southee when he was 61 and the hosts were seven behind.
Zampa was the last wicket to fall, making 16 of 21 balls before being caught by Bolt, who finished 4-38.
He took Henry 3-33 out of 10, Southee 1-39 and Santner 1-22.
