New Zealand stun champions Australia in Super 12 opener

Doug Conway scored an excellent unbeaten 92 as New Zealand thrashed reigning champions Australia by 89 runs in a rematch of final 12 months’s remaining, opening the Tremendous 12 stage with a bang on the Twenty20 World Cup on Saturday.

Expatriate New Zealanders turned out in numbers at a packed Sydney Cricket Floor and had been handled to fireworks from the Black Caps batters as they blasted their strategy to 200 for 3 of their 20 overs after Conway smashed the ultimate ball for a six. David Warner was unlucky to depart to a freak dismissal off the primary ball of the second over of Australia’s innings however the New Zealand bowlers saved up relentless stress to dismiss the hosts for 111 within the 18th over.

Seamer Tim Southee took three for six as New Zealand handed Australia their greatest loss in a T20 worldwide and received their first match in any format towards their neighbours in Australia since a check win in Hobart 11 years in the past.
