In Pics: Agar and Maxwell heroics help Australia win third T20 over NZ

Australia finally managed to post a win over New Zealand in the ongoing five-match T20 series, defeating the hosts by 64 runs in the third game at the Westpac Stadium in Wellington on Wednesday (March 3). Glenn Maxwell smashed 70 off just 31 balls while skipper Aaron Finch returned to form, scoring 69 off 44 balls to help the visitors post a massive 208/4 after batting first. Left-arm Ashton Agar derailed the New Zealand chase, claiming 6/30 in his four overs -- the fifth-best bowling figures in T20 international history to help bundle out the Kiwis for 144. Here we take a look at the exciting third T20 through a collection of pictures.
