In response, Australia lost three wickets in the first four overs for the seventh time in T20I history, before falling to 4:19 after 4-2 overs

Mitch Marsh resisted by doing 45 runs with 33 balls, while Ashton Agar delivered a handy cameo with 23 runs with 13 balls

But the rest of the scorecard makes for grim reading for Australia, which failed to get a grip on the superior swing bowling of the Kiwi Quicks
