After facing a whitewash against South Africa in the One-Day International series, Australia is all set to host neighbors New Zealand for a three-match ODI series, which starts from Friday (Mar 13).
Aussies will be hoping to change the scenarios while the Black Caps have arrived in Australia with confidence as they recently crushed India in the ODI as well as the Test series.
The overall records, however, favor the hosts as when it comes to Chappell-Hadlee Trophy, then Australia have won it five times out of 11 series, whereas the Black Caps have won it four times. Two times the series ended in a draw. New Zealand currently holds the trophy after they defeated Australia 2–0 in the 2016-17 edition of the Chappell-Hadlee series.
For those who aren’t aware, the Chappell-Hadlee Trophy is an ODI series between Australia and New Zealand. It is named after legendary cricketing families from the two countries: the Chappell brothers (Ian, Gregory, and Trevor) of Australia and Walter Hadlee and his three sons (Barry, Dayle, and Sir Richard) of New Zealand.
