Warning! Do not bat in an odd numbered position in Australia’s middle order in a ODI.
Today, Peter Handscomb at three, Glenn Maxwell at five and James Faulkner at seven, faced a grand total of seven deliveries between them for the princely sum of exactly zero runs.
Earlier in the day, New Zealand’s Tom Latham and Lockie Ferguson also failed to get off the mark and so out of 19 wickets to fall in Hamilton, five combined to make nought.
New Zealand won by 24 runs and thus sealed a 2-0 series victory against a patch Australian side.
