New Zealand rode on a century by Kane Williamson and handsome contributions by Luke Ronchi and Ross Taylor to post a total of 291 runs in their Group A match against Australia at the Champions Trophy cricket tournament here on Friday.
Williamson led the Kiwi charge with a solid innings of 100 runs before being run out.
His 97 - ball innings included eight boundaries and three sixes.
Ronchi chipped in with a quick fire 65 off 43 deliveries which included nine boundaries and three sixes.
Taylor, on the other hand, was unlucky to miss out on what would have been a wel - deserved half - century as he was dismissed on 46, hitting six boundaries during his 58 - ball stay at the crease.
Fast bowler Josh Hazlewood produced an excellent display of pace bowling to return figures of 6/52 - - three of those wickets coming off four deliveries in the penultimate over of the innings.
