    Australia thrash New Zealand in Twenty 20 game

    The first ever men's Twenty 20 international was played between Australia and New Zealand today at Eden Park. Australia whipped New Zealand by 44 runs, a huge margin in a 50-over game so it is a real walloping in a 20-over context. Ricky Ponting nearly scored a century and assisted by Symonds, Katich and Hussey, Australia made 214 in their alloted 20 overs. In reply, New Zealand were in trouble once the openers were separated. Mike Kasprowicz used all his past experience at Twenty 20 to snap up four wickets as the Kiwis lost wickets at regular intervals. Only Scott Styris and McCullum contributed with the bat.

    With this victory, Australia have a unique achievement. They won the first ever test and the first ever one-day international too!
