Home' Greymouth Star : November 7th 2013 Contents Greymouth Star
of the New Zealand Herald
e smiles were back on New Zealand faces
as they ended a grim limited-overs leg of
their Bangladeshi tour on a winning note in
Having been thumped 3-0 by the hosts in
their ODI series, New Zealand finished the
trip with their first win in that country since
October 2008, winning their only T20 clash
by 15 runs at the Shere Bangla Stadium.
"It s been a pretty tough couple of weeks,"
captain Kyle Mills said.
" e Bangladesh guys have played some
really good cricket. e guys were under
pressure today and four or five really stepped
up for us."
Chief among those was Auckland left-
hander Colin Munro, who followed an
impressive 85 in the third and final ODI with
a bracing unbeaten 73 not out off 39 balls to
provide the key innings in New Zealand s
204 for five.
Munro hit five sixes in an innings which
amply demonstrated his aggressive qualities
and should have him shaping as an important
figure in the home limited-overs programme
against the West Indies and India.
e other key innings came from tyro
opener Anton Devcich.
He hit 59 off just 31 balls to give New
Zealand s innings a flying start. Munro and
Ross Taylor then shared a rapid 93-run stand
for the third wicket to set Bangladesh a target
which was beyond them.
eir chase ended at 189 for nine, of which
their inspirational captain Mushfiqur Rahim
hit a quick maiden T20 50.
Bangladesh did give New Zealand a scare
though, being narrowly ahead on comparative
run rate as late as the 13th over.
However, they had lost too many early
wickets and the tail was unable to complete
the job, as Tim Southee, Mills and Corey
Anderson played key roles with the ball.
Southee finished with three wickets, and
Anderson two as a 10-game barren period in
Bangladesh was brought to a halt.
New Zealand now head to Sri Lanka
for three ODIs and two T20s, starting in
Hambantota on Sunday.
No Brendon McCullum, Taylor or Kane
Williamson --- respectively at home receiving
rehabilitation on a wonky back, preparing for
the arrival of the West Indies, and recovering
from a fractured thumb --- means more
chances for new players.
It also makes an already difficult challenge
even harder against a strong Sri Lankan side.
"It s a great opportunity for a number of us
to stand up," Mills said.
" e T20 World Cup is not long after
Christmas (back in Bangladesh) and there s
also the big World Cup in 15 months
time (in Australia and New Zealand). So
it s an opportunity for us to get some solid
performances before we get to our home
summer." --- APNZ

Black Caps end
tour with T20 win
Fate has put Luke McLean
on a collision course with old
Aussie team-mates as he aims to
celebrate his 50th test cap with
the "biggest victory in Italian
history" this weekend.
McLean will line up against the
Wallabies for the sixth time in
his Azzurri career in Turin, seven
years after playing with Will
Genia and Nick Cummins for the
He is also expected to be
bombarded at fullback or on
the wing by one-time Brisbane

If McLean and his Italian team-
mates can rise to the occasion
at Stadio Olympico on Sunday
morning, he staunchly believes
they can continue the Wallabies
Australia have never lost to
Italy in 15 meetings but, after
a 3-8 record in 2013, they find
themselves vulnerable against a
team that upset both France and
Ireland in this year s Six Nations.
As big as those home wins were,
McLean says the Azzurri s first
"Tri-Nations" scalp would be
"It would probably be the
biggest victory in Italian history,"
he said. "To take the scalp of the
fourth-best team in the world,
and the Wallabies --- who have
won the World Cup twice ---
everyone knows the importance
and how difficult it will be to
come away with the win."
Under Frenchman Jaques
Brunel, Italy have closed the
gap against the top nations and
Wallabies veteran Adam Ashley-
Cooper believes the powerful
Azzurri pack will be licking their
Italy almost stole a win against
Australia last year before falling
22-19, and finishing off rivals
is now their big focus post-Six
Nations. "We obviously have to
prove to ourselves, and the Italian
public as well, that we are on the
right track," the lanky back said.
" e best way to do it is win those
McLean does not view
Australia as a wounded beast
ready to be picked off easily by
smaller animals. "You have to put
it into perspective, (New Zealand
and South Africa) are playing
top-notch rugby and Australia
has definitely improved since the
season has gone on," he said.
" ey are a quality team and we
have to be on our game because if
you give their backs a bit of room
they can run riot and we saw that
in Argentina (54-16)."
