New Zealand were off to a promising start in the T20 World Cup decider against Australia, with the scoreboard reading 23/0 after 3 overs. However, Josh Hazlewood cleverly rolled his fingers across the seam to fox Daryl Mitchell, who perished in a bid to give himself room to open up the off-side. Hazlewood's unerring accuracy often frustrates batters, which proved to be the case on this occasion. The onus is now on Martin Guptill and skipper Kane Williamson to not let Australia use the opening wicket as a springboard to gain ascendancy.
