Kiwi captain Brendon McCullum won the toss & decided to bat first in the final of Cricket world cup 2015. But his batsmen including him didnt respond to that decision well. McCullum got out on a duck playing 3 balls only.
At one point they lost 3 wickets for 39 runs. Then a decent partnership between Ross Taylor & Grant Elliot saved the grace a bit. This 2 added 111 runs pretty quick. But the rhythm cut off when Taylor got out on 150 runs. Australians took that chance with both hands & forced the black caps to lose their remaining wickets adding only 33 runs!
Grant Elliot was the sole run scorer for the kiwis. He scored 83 of that total. But the failure of other batsmen prevented New Zealand from a big score.
Australia’s yet to bat & they are on the driving seat.
