NZ smash Australia by 10 wickets.

New zealand has hammered Australia by 10 wickets in the first Chappell-Hadlee Trophy match at Wellington. Set just 149 runs to win NZ got the runs easily, sealing victory after just 27 overs. Earlier, NZ won the toss and chose to field. None of the Australian batsmen ever got in and Hussey top scoring with 42 off 96 balls summed up how the Australians were playing. Australia now has to win or draw the 2nd match to retain their place at the top of the ICC One Day rankings although the way they have the last 5 or so matches, they don't deserve it.
