The Aussies have managed to level the series and keep the series alive. It was generally just better cricket from them this time,but it's interesting to compare their second win with the game in Melbourne that got the Kiwis 2-0 up.
Melbourne, 39th over, NZ needing just under 6 an over to win:
Taylor is batting, one Hussey bowling and the other spills a catch on the boundary, resulting in four runs. A couple of balls late, 5 wides down the legside, and the chance that Australia were hanging onto is gone.
Adelaide, 37th over, Aus needing just over 6 an over to win:
The Husseys are batting, Michael pulls and is dropped by Cumming on the boundary, resulting in four runs. Next ball, McCullum fumbles a wide ball - 3 more runs, and the NZ let Australia into a comfortable position.
They say catches win matches - and sometimes dropping them is more than just an opportunity missed!
