Trent Boult six give NZ a ODI series win

Australia had five pace-bowling options in both matches and were at full strength with the ball, with the possible exception of allrounder Mitch Marsh. Aaron Finch could call upon Mitchell Starc, Josh Hazlewood, Pat Cummins, James Faulkner and Marcus Stoinis, all of whom performed impressively at different times across the two matches.
On the flipside, just 12 overs of spin were bowled out of a possible 100, with part-time offie Travis Head (1-21 from five in Auckland) and full-time leggie Adam Zampa (0-41 from seven in Hamilton) only bit-part bowlers in the context of the series. Certainly it could be argued that both pitches favoured the fast bowlers, however the fact that Glenn Maxwell (picked for the India Test series as an allrounder) is still to bowl a single over in the seven matches he's played since his return to the ODI team remains a perplexing one.
