Australia warmed up for their tour of the West Indies, which starts later this week, by cruising to a six-wicket victory over New Zealand with 18 overs and five balls to spare in the final of the New Zealand Cricket Centenary series yesterday.
CENTENARY SERIES ONE-DAY INTERNATIONALS (Auckland, NZ): New Zealand 137 for 9 (50 overs); Australia 138 for 4 (31.1 overs). Australia won by six wickets.
Moin Khan, the Pakistan wicketkeeper, yesterday took five catches against Zimbabwe in the third and final one-day international in Harare to equal the wicketkeeping record for the most dismissals in a limited-overs match. Aamir Sohail was taken to hospital with a torn back muscle in the game which Zimbabwe won to level the series after the first match ended in a tie.Reuse content
