    Victory for New Zealand against Australia in the second Twenty20 cricket international at Dunedin, and a return to form from Martin Guptill

    Victory for New Zealand against Australia in the second Twenty20 cricket international at Dunedin, and a return to form from Martin Guptill


    The Black Caps opener made a game-high 97 off 50 balls in the four-run win, after the hosts posted 219 for seven.

    He and Kane Williamson shared a record 131-run second-wicket stand against all comers.



    Ahmedabad has proven Ahmed-ageddon for England's hopes in the World Test Championship.

    India continue as the favourites to play New Zealand in the June final after romping to a 10-wicket win in the third test inside two days.

    England were rolled for 81 in their second innings with Axar Patel spinning match figures of 11 for 70.



    The Breakers have suffered a 96-78 defeat to the Sydney Kings in the Australian basketball league.

    They've blown a 13-point first-quarter lead to fall behind by 10 points at halftime in Melbourne.

    The Breakers have one win from seven to start the season.



    Sprint cycling veterans Ethan Mitchell and Sam Webster have gone head-to-head in the flying 200 at the national championships in Invercargill.

    Mitchell set a new championship record of 9.763 seconds with Webster 0.033 of a second - or a few shreds of tyre rubber - behind.



    Plenty to consider for the New Zealand men's rowing eight and quadruple sculls crews.

    The Lucerne 'regatta of death' will go ahead in May - a last chance for the boats to qualify for the Tokyo Olympics, if they go ahead.

    Eight hopeful Tom Mackintosh says he's committed, but in a Covid-ravaged world that's not the case for everyone.

    A decision on whether the crews will head to Lucerne is expected around midday.



    New Zealand's rugby referees are preparing for a rule change they can see coming in the international game's future.

    A goal-line dropout will occur in this year's Super Rugby Aotearoa if a player is held up or knocks on in-goal, or an attacking kick is grounded by the defending team.

    Referees boss Bryce Lawrence says it's been used in Australia, and is something World Rugby is considering so they want to lead the way now.

    Super Rugby Aotearoa kicks off tonight with the Highlanders hosting the Crusaders.
