The Australian One Day cricket team is in danger of losing its No. 1 ranking after losing the Chappell Hadlee  2 – 0 to the Kiwis on the weekend.

The New Zealanders wrapped up the series on Sunday by defeating the Aussies by 24 runs in front of a sold out crowd in Hamilton.

Australia have been accused of not showing the respect the Kiwis deserve by sending  a second string team to New Zealand and it left a disappointed stand in skipper Aaron Finch (pictured) to try to find a positive after the defeat.
