Live: CB Series Game 8 Aus V NZ

Australia won by 8 runs.
Great chase by NZ, led by a brialliant century by Jacob Oram but they fell agonisingly short. England will have to watch out on tuesday.

Australia has won the toss and decided to bat. It's going to be tough work for NZ in the field as it's 40 degrees in Perth at the moment. Australia have made two changes, Nathan Bracken and Glenn McGrath are back in place of Brad Hogg and Stuart Clark. For NZ, Lou Vincent comes in for Nathan Astle who retired from international cricket the other day.

Mathew Hayden and Adam Gilchrist will open the batting for Australia. Gilchrist neede 72 runs to take him to 8600 ODI runs. Hayden needs 62 to take him to 4400.

Kyle Mills to open the bowling.
