Super Stoinis sets new all-round benchmark

No, you weren't dreaming when you thought Marcus Stoinis emerged from nowhere to deposit sixes all over Auckland in one of the most stunning ODI knocks ever put together by an Australian during last week's series opener. Stoinis, a one-game wonder a week ago, was composed and confident at the crease today,
playing patiently as he looked to repeat his feats in similar circumstances; wickets were falling, the target looked a distant one, and he was the last remaining recognised batsman. Ultimately it wasn't his day – he fell for 42 from 48 deliveries – but there were enough signs to show that his 146 not out has made him a new player.
