At one point floundering on 44-5 with a target of 233 set by the Black Caps to win, the Aussies mounted a superb fightback in Tuesday's 1st ODI of this Covid-delayed series. Superb batting performances from Green (89 no) and Alex Carey (85) helped steer the Aussies to an unlikely two-wicket victory, with the pair sharing a 158-run partnership.

The hosts clinched the win in dramatic style, despite a bout of cramp for Green and a tension-inducing rain delay that stopped play with the Aussies just four runs away from their target.

Despite the defeat and a batting collapse that saw that saw them lose their last six wickets for just 44 runs, there were positives to be drawn for New Zealand, with Trent Boult's destruction of the Aussie top order likely to have the home side decidedly wary coming this second fixture. Here's how to watch an Australia vs New Zealand 2nd ODI live stream and get international cricket online from wherever you are.
