Chappell-Hadlee Series Game 3

Mathew Hayden has blasted the highest score by an Australian in ODI history to lead Australia to 5/346 off their 50 overs in the 3rd and final match of the chappell-hadlee series.
All kinds of records tumbled as Hayden carried his bat to finsih 181 not out. He eclipsed Mark Waugh's 173 in the 2001/01 series to register the highest score by an Australian in ODI history.

Before today the highest by a player from any country in a one-dayer in NZ was 156 by Andrew Symond last year in the Chappell-Hadlee series.

Hayden hit 10 sixes to break the record for most sixes in an innings by an Australian which was 9, set by Ponting last year in that 430 odd score against South Africa. Hayden now sits in 8th place on the all-time list for highest individual score in ODIs.

Hayden's 181 came off just 166 balls with 11 fours and 10 sixes.
Watson chipped in with 68 off 69 balls as the openers put on 122 for the first wicket in 25 overs.
