    New Zealand beats Australia by 159 runs at Auckland

    ?>

    Trent Boult and Matt Henry shared six wickets to destroy Australia’s top order and steer New Zealand to a 159-run win on Wednesday, taking a measure of revenge for defeat by its trans-Tasman rival in last year’s World Cup final.

    In the opening game of the Chappell-Hadlee series, and the teams’ first meeting since the World Cup, New Zealand scored 307-8 after being sent in to bat, and Australia was never in the contest after slumping to 41-6 before being bowled out for 148 in 24.2 overs.

    Martin Guptill set up New Zealand’s inning with 90, sharing in a rapid 79-run opening partnership with Brendon McCullum, who was playing his last game at Eden Park.
