New Zealand creep over the line against Australia

New Zealand edged to a one-wicket victory over fellow World Cup co-hosts Australia to claim the Chappell-Hadlee Trophy in a low-scoring thriller at Eden Park.

Left-arm pacemen Trent Boult (five for 27) of New Zealand and Australia's Mitchell Starc (six for 28) took career-best bowling figures in one-day internationals, but it was the Black Caps that just got over the line.

They appeared set to make a statement of intent after Trent Boult took five wickets in 18 balls as Australia collapsed from 80 for one to 106 for nine, before being bowled out for 151 in 32.2 overs.

Several of their batsmen were guilty of poor shots, but Brendon McCullum once again thrived where others failed with a blistering half-century in New Zealand's reply.

While his dismissal prompted a wobble, New Zealand appeared to be coasting before they lost a rash of wickets, with Starc coming to the fore, but Kane Williamson (45 not out) smashed a six to get his side to their victory target with 26.5 overs to spare.

Australia recalls frozen berries after hepatitis outbreak

An Australian food firm has recalled all packs of frozen berries after a hepatitis A outbreak linked to a Chinese packaging plant.

Officials believe the outbreak may be linked to poor hygiene and water supplies at the Chinese firm, after five people fell ill after eating the Nanna's Mixed Berries, which are produced by Patties Foods Ltd.

The issue has reignited concerns about food safety in Chinese exports, after more than 11,000 schoolchildren in Germany were struck down by vomiting and diarrhoea which authorities linked to frozen strawberries imported from China.

The particular risk that we've identified here is that a country that has endemic hepatitis A, that is China, has been involved with packing these berries.

Clearly there's strong evidence that there may have been a contamination during the packing process as they are fully sealed and then transported to Australia.
