commentary

That's all the action we've got for today. Tune in tomorrow to catch the finals day of Womens and Mens Big Bash. Promises to be a cracker. Until then, sayonara from Raju Peethala, Pratyush Sinha, Varun Dixit and Sulthan. Wishing you a happy weekend. Ta!

22:44 local: Phewf! That was quick. Let's be honest here: New Zealand didn't have the runs; they pretty much lost it inside the first half of the first innings, (lost their top four inside 8 overs) and never found the road to recovery. de Grandhomme's 24-ball 38 only helped in coruscating a sorry scoreboard, and Australia with two of their best T20 batsmen - Lynn and Maxwell - made the chase look like a cheesecake. No sign of presentations yet unfortunately, guess that should be it. We are done...
