    Clean sweep for Australia in one-dayers against New Zealand

    At Napier, Australia thrashed (has it been any different so far?) New Zealand by 122 runs to win the 5th ODI as well, thus cleaning up the series 5-0. All the Kiwi bowlers stuck to their task with the exception of Vettori who gave away just 37 runs from his 10 overs. Gilchrist blasted his way to 91 off just 61 balls and Ponting scored an unbeaten 141 in just 127 balls, shades of the 2003 World Cup final?

    Even after having their noses rubbed into the ground several times, Bracewell was able to come up with some humour and laugh at Australia as they fell 53 runs short of the target they were looking for. Perhaps he'll say that New Zealand chose not to chase the target successfully since he didn't want to rub salt into Aussie wounds.
