ICC Champions Trophy 2006

First Semi-Final, AUS vs NZ: Australia in Finals

Australia reached their first Champions Final with a 34-run victory over New Zealand in Mohali. They made 240/9 in 50 overs in the first semifinal on Wednesday and then restricted New Zealand to 206 with 4 overs to spare.
Australia recovered from 4-2 as Ricky Ponting and Andrew Symonds both hit 58s, but lost wickets at regular intervals. Chasing 241 for victory, the Kiwis tumbled to 35-6, Glenn McGrath taking 3-22 in a 10-over spell.
Jacob Oram (43) and Daniel Vettori (79) shared a seventh-wicket stand of 103 and the lower order kept thrashing boundaries. The loss put an end to New Zealand hopes of another shot at the title they won in Kenya six years ago. Australia (Playing XI) : Ricky Ponting (Captain), Adam Gilchrist, Nathan Bracken, Michael Clarke, Mitchell Johnson, Michael Hussey, Brett Lee, Damien Martyn, Glenn McGrath, Shane Watson, Andrew Symonds.
