From Cricinfo:

Hello and welcome to Christchurch for the 2nd T20I between New Zealand and Australia.

Daniel Vettori has won the toss and will bat first again. In team news, Tim Southee comes in for Daryl Tuffey, which is a slight surprise.

While for Australia, Travis Burt is in for Shane Watson and Ryan Harris is in for Mitchell Johnson, who was MOM in the first match in Wellington.

The weather is fine with some high cloud. We are headed for a maximum of 28 degrees C and the surface is in pristine condition.

The pitch has played well in the curtain raiser between the two women's teams even though there were only 210 runs scored. New Zealand won the match to take the T20I series 5-0 after losing the ODI series 5-0 - remarkable turnaround.
Franklin just confirmed that Akhtar is faster than Tait
good start from kiwis... i hope they win this one...
when aus starts winning its very hard to stop them..
62/2 Guptill gone

Taylor and McCullum should be something special
wow what a fantastic 100 by McCulum only 17 more to reach highest score in 20/20

Century for McCullum ...brilliant!

:))) :))) @ the commentator... he yelled out "YEAAAAAAA... WOO HOO" :))) :)))

Unbiased ... maybe not.
McCullum scored 100 on 50 balls. Great hitting by McCullum.
Sadly did not get to the final score but still... what an innings!

Well played.

It will be interesting to see Warner in this stadium.
Im actually happy that Ryan Harris got the treat. He is not that good of a bowler that Pakistan made him look.
In the T20 you gotta master the scoop shot to make a 100. I think Mcullum made at least 40% of his runs off the scoop shots which most of em were perfect yorkers really.
well well well what is Aussies gonna do now?

All that pace and what it gets you is 10 runs per over.

Bring in Akhtar he will solve our bowling problems

Except for MJ and maybe the Dougy bunnynger the Australian bowling attack is WYSIWYG. In this case, what you saw today.
on this pitch ground Bonds figure are amazing when rest of them are going 10-12/over

Flicked Bond with disdain. Shot of the match for me.
wow wow wow wow.......................what a match....................
Wow...great stuff from Southee

Must say though Aussies are lucky a run out that NZ should have taken advantage of.
Yup... Super Over coming up.

I would send in Warner and White if I was Australia. McCullum and Hopkins for NZL.

Not sure about the bowlers.
What a great match. awsome suspense. great bowling by Southee. Great Excellent batting by White, man he is a very dangerous batsmen. missed NZ innings but saw ffew of mccullum shots and he was impressive. Im with Kiwis, too bad they post such a huge total and still didnt mange to win it as they should have been. Clarke proved that he is a 20-20 player aswell and showes another class that in 20-20 you can still go for singles-2's and fours, its not that if u dont hit a 6 your not a 20-20 super ove southee go for it
did they change super bowl...
i remember pak vs india.. u just have to hit the wickets?
What's happening. Just got back from the pub. Apparently we have a tie?
I know Mcullum hit a great hundred but I think southee should get the man of the match
for his overs. He more or less got NZ back in the match
newzeland wins.....................................................................................what a night................................
nice win in the end but they should've won inside the 20 overs.
Great win for KIWIS> very happy for them, stupid bowling by TATU as i call him. NZ deserved a win and they did. to me MOM should be Brendon n SOutheee
