8. New Zealand 332/8 vs Australia
Whenever a match is held in New Zealand, then big scores and lusty blows become imminent. The matches in the nation are dominated by the batsmen of batting sides with some flat wickets and small boundaries to their beneficiary.
This match was the third match of the 2005-06 Chappell-Hadlee series which was played at Christchurch on 25th December 2005. In the match, Styris hammered a sublime century while Mcculum also slapped a 25 ball half-century to salvage a marathon chase. While batting first, on back of some incredible batting by Hussey and Clarke in the back end of the innings, Australia had set a gigantic target of 332.
