The BlackCaps welcomed their bitter Trans-Tasman neighbours with a big win in the first T20I match in Christchurch. Kane Williamson made it 2-0 in Dunedin, and they needed a win to take register third back-to-back series wins -- after beating West Indies 2-0 and Pakistan 2-1 at home.
But they lost the next two outings in Wellington as the Aaron Finch-led Aussies registered massive scores in the third and fourth matches. Now, they meet at the same venue to decide the winner.
The match will be followed by the women's match between New Zealand and England.
Head-to-head: The series started with Australia leading 7-2, then it became 7-4 for a while. It's 9-4 in 13 matches so far.
