AUCKLAND (Reuters) – On Sunday, Australia achieved a clean sweep of their three-match Twenty20 series against New Zealand, defeating the Kiwis by 27 runs using the Duckworth-Lewis system at Eden Park.

The Australians had already won the series after winning the previous two games in Wellington and Auckland, scoring 118 runs for four wickets in 10.4 overs that were frequently disrupted by rain.

Travis Head top scored for Australia with 33 runs from 30 balls before being caught by Ish Sodhi off Mitchell Santner’s bowling, leaving New Zealand with a target of 126 runs in 10 overs.

Opener Will Young fell in the second over, and with Tim Seifert and Finn Allen following him in the pavilion shortly after, New Zealand’s cause was all but gone.

Glenn Phillips scored 40 not out from 24 balls, but it was insufficient in the end.

The bilateral series marked both sides’ final international outings before the Indian Premier League begins next month and the T20 World Cup in the West Indies and the United States in June.
