Overs: 47.0 / 50.0


7.15pm Stoinis arrived at 54 for 5 and did not budge at all. He picked off the gaps with Faulkner, picked off the short straight boundaries with the tail, and powered onto follow an uninterrupted spell of 10-0-49-3 with a sterling century. He even added a fifty stand with No.11 Josh Hazlewood with the latter not facing a ball in about 30 minutes. During the process, Stoinis became the first Australian to hit a century and claim three wickets in an ODI. At the end of another thriller, though, New Zealand came away with a win, Kane Williamson producing that piece of magic. Dan Brettig's report should be your next stop. This is the Muthu brothers knocking off an Eden Park screamer from our bucket list.

7.10pm I shall bring you the presentations

Aaron Finch: That's a rollercoaster. Probably one of the best one-day performances [from Stoinis]. Just couldn't get over the line. You are aiming to get it deep, you never know what happens. I thought we were sloppy; the all-round performance. We believed we could chase 287, the ball flies at Eden Park. A lot of extras and wides, you can nitpick anything. Just a bit of a shoulder twinge [while batting]. I will get through it.

Kane Williamson: As Finchy mentioned, it was a rollercoaster. The way Marcus played for a good part of 35 overs was fantastic. He deserves to be the Man of the Match. On these sort of grounds, you need to look to take wickets. The way they built partnerships late gave us a chance too. Eden Park has produced some thrillers, and nice to be involved in this. It [Placing myself at short mid-on] was hopefully to gather a throw from somebody and avoid a direct-hit maybe.We need to be better going into Napier.

Marcus Stonis, Man of the Match: It may sink in later, the win was the priority. Some sad faces in the dressing room. I am not experienced for these grounds. Finch gave me the confidence - I had a full crack at ten overs. The key was not to panic. The first instinct is to score quicker. Jimmy [Faulkner] was good out there to bat with. We calmed each other down, and at the end we had a crack at it. Sometimes, the plans don't come off. A performance like this does well for your confidence, but consistency is the key. Hopefully, I back it up.

7pm 27, 911 fans celebrate with Kane Williamson and his team on Auckland day. Stoinis is stranded and left heart-broken.

Rikhil katyal: "28th Feb, 2015, wins the game with last hit off the bat 30th Jan 2017, wins the game with the last hit off the ball Venue: Eden Park Opposition: Australia Name: Williamson, Kane Williamson!!! "

Clinton: "Hazlewood a diamond duck in 26 minutes, that has to be a record!"

Rohantha: "This has the 1999 Alan Donald run out written all over!"

Safi: "First Rafa-Roger then Ind-Eng now Aus- NZ! These people giving me heart attacks."

46.6TG Southee to MP Stoinis, OUT, No run, Venue: Eden Park. Hero: Kane Williamson. Result: New Zealand win a thriller! You've heard that before? Whoa.... What a game. Breathless stuff. First let us give credit to Williamson for placing himself at short mid-on. Southee nails a yorker on off stump, Stoinis can only dig the ball out fairly straight to Williamson. He collects the ball, falls in front of the stumps, and under-arms it into the stumps to catch Hazlewood short. Hazlewood had lost his head. He was off for a single - there wasn't a single there - he has to spin back. He dishes out a desperate dive, but that's not enough. This is the first time Hazlewood has been dismissed in an ODI. Spare a thought for Marcus Stonis, though. Nearly pulled off an incredible heist from nowhere.
46.5TG Southee to MP Stoinis, BOUNDARY, 6 runs, low full-toss outside off, smeared over long-off for a six. Fifty partnership with no contribution at all from Hazlewood. He hasn't faced a ball yet. Unbelievable scenes at Eden Park.
46.4TG Southee to MP Stoinis, BOUNDARY, 6 runs, similar ball - full and wide outside off - Stoinis throws his hands at it and slices it over cover. Clears the bigger boundary.
46.3TG Southee to MP Stoinis, No run, full and outside off, slapped away to cover.
46.2TG Southee to MP Stoinis, No run, Ripping effort from Broom. He dives full length to his left and meets the ball on a half-volley and knocks it away towards long-off. Wide yorker, dragged away to wide long-on.
46.1TG Southee to MP Stoinis, No run, low full-toss, hit to deep midwicket, but they don't run.

You could have replaced those names with the names of the baristas at your local coffee shop and everyone would have just nodded along.

Starc's a capable batsman, and he sure can clear a ground. But you'd think these two have to take Australia to at least within 50 runs of their target. That seems to be their thought process in the middle anyway, looking for singles, hanging on. A message comes in from the think-tank, perhaps to that effect.

Australia need a mammoth 191 in 144 balls, with only four wickets in hand...

Jess: "With all respect @Suyog, theyve been playing Pakistan in ODIs extremely recently. They are an international team and are playing a consistent format of the game - they should not need a practice game" So a little perspective then? They'd thumped Pakistan 4-1, setting all sorts of records along the way. One off game shouldn't overshadow that, should it? And this is an under-strength line-up. As a commenter pointed out earlier, take Williamson and Guptill out of New Zealand and they would have struggled too

There can be one or more failures, as everybody in the team can't hit big on a given day. And last but not the least, match hasn't finished yet. So, give em a break."

Richard: ""Sheer, scary pace has paralysed them" Um... no it hasn't. They face Starc and Cummins in the nets, Heazlett faced Shaun Tait on his BBL debut, I don't think they're "paralysed" by Ferguson (who sprayed it everywhere when he played in Australia)." Fair enough, but there is a difference between facing your mates in the nets and an opponent who is totally on top, at international cricket

Plus someone said earlier this could be a battle of the stand in wicket keepers? No contest. Tommy is doing the keeping gloves proud. Could have solved the NZ selectors conundrum of too many all rounders"

Hayden Campbell: "Wow - That over from Boult reminded me of the World Cup. He looks to back bowling with great rhythm. There is something about watching left arm swim bowling. in recent times NZ have had some quality left arm swing bowlers like Allot, O'Connor and Murphy Su'a to name a few."
