"I thought we fought really well but it was sort of the story of our trip: good enough to win the game but not good enough to go through to the final".

Opening batsman Martin Guptill told Radio Sport Breakfast that New Zealand never considered the smaller total of 175 to progress to Wednesday's final. "You've got guys who only play T20 and that's their chance to play global cricket, so absolutely".

The Durham all-rounder was arrested in September a year ago on suspicion of causing actual bodily harm in an incident near a Bristol night club.

But after the big-hitting opener smacked 105 off 54 balls as New Zealand posted a seemingly daunting 243, Australia caned the New Zealand bowling to produce the highest run chase in Twenty20 history to win by five wickets.
