Adam Zampa ripped apart the New Zealand batting order and bagged a maiden ODI five-for as Australia registered a morale-boosting 113-run win in Cairns to take an unassailable 2-0 lead in the three-match Chappell-Hadlee ODI series. The tourists were bundled out for a paltry 82 in a manageable chase of 196.

In conditions, where the ball nipped around upfront, the Australian pacemen made crucial inroads to lay the platform for the massive win. Such was the hosts' grasp over the proceedings that Sean Abbott ended up bowling four maiden overs in a row. Although he won't be happy with his sloppy fielding effort that led to Kane Williamson getting a lifeline. It's a different matter that it didn't cost them much.
