New Zealand score 307-8 against Australia in first ODI

Martin Guptill made 90, becoming the first man to strike a six onto the roof of Eden Park’s North Stand, and Brendon McCullum hit 44 in his last innings at the Auckland stadium as New Zealand made 307-8 batting first against Australia on Wednesday.

Guptill went on to hit four more sixes along with eight fours in his innings of 90 from 76 balls. His 79-run opening partnership with McCullum set New Zealand on course to a competitive total.

Earlier, Australia won the toss and elected to bowl, with skipper Steve Smith saying the chasing team normally wins at Eden Park.
