AUS vs NZ, 2nd ODI Live Updates: New Zealand were on top of the match early in the second ODI as Australia lost four wickets inside the first 10 overs. Mitchell Santner then had Alex Carey stumped to leave Australia five down, after the wicketkeeper looked to steady them along with Steve Smith. While Australia skipper Aaron Finch fell for a duck in the second over, David Warner was out for 5 soon after. Matt Henry accounted for the wickets of both the openers. Trent Boult then take over wicket-taking duties, as he trapped both Marnus Labuschagne and Marcus Stoinis LBW to leave the hosts reeling at 26/4. New Zealand captain Kane Williamson won the toss and opted to bowl as they look to level the series. Australia replaced one of their heroes from the last match, Cameron Green, with pacer Sean Abbott, with the all-rounder’s workload being managed. He had suffered cramps during his heroic knock in the first ODI. For New Zealand, Tim Southee has replaced Lockie Ferguson. New Zealand have won their last five ODI series, including a recent 2-1 triumph in the West Indies, and must win today to keep that streak alive. Australia had won the first ODI, which was a low-scoring thriller. (LIVE SCORECARD)
