Match factsDecember 6, 2016 Start time 1420 local (0320 GMT)Big PictureNew Zealand must have left the Sydney Cricket Ground on Sunday night thinking, if only. If only they had asked for a review when Steven Smith was given not-out by umpire Mick Martell after being trapped lbw on 14, the first ODI might have unfolded quite differently. Trent Boults fine delivery had swung in and trapped Smith in front, but New Zealand declined to refer Martells decision upstairs. There was plenty of chat afterwards about that, New Zealand coach Mike Hesson said. There were two sounds and the possibility of an inside edge. Were all well aware there wasnt. That was the thinking and you could understand it. It was a little bit frustrating. The reason it was frustrating was that Smith went on to accumulate 164 and set up a big win for Australia.The teams now move on to Canberra with Australia 1-0 up in the three-match series, so New Zealand must win at the Manuka Oval on Tuesday to have any hope of retaining the Chappell-Hadlee Trophy. The good news for New Zealand is that they had one batsman who looked every bit as dangerous as Smith at the SCG, but unfortunately for them, Martin Guptill couldnt go quite as deep into the innings as Smith, and fell for 114 off 102 balls. The toss may be particularly important in Canberra, where big runs are generally available, and the team batting first has won the six most recent ODIs.Form guideAustralia: WLLLL (last five completed matches, most recent first) New Zealand: LLWLWIn the spotlightA golden duck in Sydney was hardly the start Aaron Finch wanted in this series, but he will be pleased to arrive in Canberra for the second game. Take a look at Finchs scores in his three ODIs at the Manuka Oval: 38, 109 and 107. His last two hundreds at the venue have come against South Africa and India, and Finch could use a big score again: in 18 ODIs since the end of the previous home summer, Finch has averaged just 26.25.After New Zealand lost Guptill, their hopes of chasing down the hefty target in Sydney faded. But, while Colin Munro was at the crease, there remained at least a tiny glimmer of hope. Munro struck four fours and one six in his innings of 49, and put on 50 for the eighth wicket with Matt Henry. While they were together, the required run rate hovered around nine an over, but at least it didnt balloon too much further. But when they both holed out in one Pat Cummins over - the 44th of the innings - the dream was dashed. It was a different sort of knock than what Im used to playing, Munro said. Given that role to try and take things a bit deeper in the innings sort of suits my game. Hopefully, in the games to come, we can have a few extra batters around me at the end and have a bit of a hit.Team newsGlenn Maxwell and James Faulkner were the two members of Australias 13-man squad left out in Sydney, and the selectors may wish to retain the winning XI in an attempt to secure the series.Australia (possible) 1 David Warner, 2 Aaron Finch, 3, Steven Smith (capt), 4 George Bailey, 5 Mitchell Marsh, 6 Travis Head, 7 Matthew Wade (wk), 8 Mitchell Starc, 9 Adam Zampa, 10 Pat Cummins, 11 Josh Hazlewood.Lockie Ferguson picked up a wicket in his first international over, but the rest of his debut was rather costly: he leaked 73 runs from nine overs, sent down four no-balls and therefore four free hits, and also cramped up. Tim Southee might come in for Ferguson in Canberra. New Zealand may also wonder if their batting order could be strengthened by the inclusion of Henry Nicholls.New Zealand (possible) 1 Tom Latham, 2 Martin Guptill, 3 Kane Williamson (capt), 4 Jimmy Neesham, 5 Colin Munro, 6 BJ Watling (wk), 7 Mitchell Santner, 8 Colin de Grandhomme, 9 Matt Henry, 10 Tim Southee, 11 Trent Boult.Pitch and conditionsManuka Oval is the kind of venue where big totals are on offer batting first, and chasing can be a challenge. The forecast for Tuesday is for a shower or two and a top temperature of 28 degrees centigrade.Stats and triviaIn Sydney, Guptill became the tenth-fastest player to 5000 ODI runs, behind Hashim Amla, Viv Richards, Virat Kohli, Brian Lara, Gordon Greenidge, AB de Villiers, Sourav Ganguly, Dean Jones and Graeme Smith.This will be Kane Williamsons 100th one-day international.Adam Zampa enters this game as the worlds leading ODI wicket-taker in 2016, with 30 scalps at 27.80. His feat is all the more impressive given he didnt make his ODI debut until February in New Zealand.QuotesWe were a little bit frustrated with the fact we chased the game with the ball. We had some good plans in place and perhaps we need to back those a bit more. We werent far off. Mike Hesson, the New Zealand coach, after the loss in Sydney Bobby Hull Jersey . -- Mike Smith never saw his first NHL goal go in. Christian Fischer Jersey . Tests earlier this week revealed a Grade 2 left hamstring strain for Sabathia, who was hurt in last Fridays start against San Francisco. Its an injury that will require about eight weeks to heal. He finished a disappointing campaign just 14-13 with a career-worst 4. http://www.authenticcoyotesshopnhl.com/niklas-hjalmarsson-jersey/ . -- In one brief spurt, Brazil turned a close game into a rout and proved again it will be a strong World Cup favourite. Luke Schenn Jersey . Datsyuk will miss Tuesdays game against New Jersey and could be sidelined longer, while Cleary will likely miss at least the next three games. Its been an injury-plagued season for Datsyuk, who has suited up for just 39 games. Antti Raanta Jersey . "We have always prided ourselves on the way we play defence. Having two big pieces back is going to be a key for us moving forward for years to come," said Knighthawks head coach Mike Hasen. PARADISE ISLAND, Bahamas -- Justise Winslows position with the Miami Heat has finally been clarified.Hes their small forward.That is, unless hes playing power forward.Or shooting guard. Or defending the oppositions point guard. Or playing at center, as he did at times out of necessity in last seasons Eastern Conference semifinal series against Toronto.In Heat vernacular, the second-year player out of Duke is a Swiss Army knife, a jack-of-all-trades whose role is fast increasing. Not only will Winslow be called upon to play multiple positions, hes also being asked to take more of a leadership role now for a team that -- without Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh -- is rebuilding on the fly this season.Thats what I want, Winslow said Wednesday. Thats what Ive been working for my whole life, to make it to the NBA -- not only that, but to be a star and have my own team one day. This is the next step in me progressing and getting there, expanding my role and growing as a leader. And I accept whatever the coaching staff throws at me.Winslow was one of the last players to leave the court after Wednesdays morning practice, a full-contact session that had players diving on floors and crashing into one another throughout. And after it was over, Winslow spent a good half-hour working on his shot.The oldest Heat player is taking notice of the extra work the youngest Heat player is doing.Hes going to play a little bit of everything, said 36-year-old Heat forward Udonis Haslem. Just be Justise Winslow. Be that Swiss Army knife we need. One night it might be 10 rebounds. Another night it might be seven assists. Another night it might be 15 to 20 points. Just be Justise Winslow. He has the ability to do all those things and he has a high-enough basketball IQ where he knows when he needs to be aggressive, make plays and do oother things.ddddddddddddWinslow, who would be going into his junior year at Duke if he wasnt in the NBA right now, isnt just Miamis youngest player -- he holds that distinction by a lot.Hes 20; next on the Heat age lists are 23-year-olds Briante Weber, Stefan Jankovic and Josh Richardson.He was quiet, Haslem said. But he fit in right away.Winslow was the fifth-youngest player to get time in the NBA last season, older than only Tyus Jones, Stanley Johnson, Rashad Vaughn and Devin Booker. And more than half of the 60 players to get taken in this years draft are older than Winslow as well.He doesnt have to listen to anybody elses expectations, Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said. Theres so many things out there about who he needs to be or what position he needs to play, how many more points a game he has to score this year. Hes going to get more minutes, more responsibilities. I want him to embrace that in a healthy way and not try to live up to anything coming from the outside.That doesnt mean there arent things Winslow wants to emulate.Wades departure over the summer hit Winslow hard. They bonded quickly, forged by Wade realizing that Winslow was willing to learn anything and everything he could from the three-time NBA champion wanted to teach. Winslow would spend time chatting up Bosh about nuances of the big-man game; their lockers were side-by-side last season.And this summer, Winslow was part of the group invited by USA Basketball the U.S. Olympic team and help them prepare for what became a gold medal at the Rio Games.Seeing all those guys come together and not really care about stats before the gold medal, thats the kind of mindset we have to have as a team, Winslow said.
