One-day international, Wellington:
New Zealand 149-0 beat Australia 148 by 10 wickets
Bond and Ross Taylor celebrate one of his five wickets on Friday
Australia crashed to their fourth defeat in five games as New Zealand became the first team to beat them by 10 wickets in one-day internationals.
Hampered by injuries, and with their captain and vice-captain both resting, the Aussies were bowled out for 148 after being put in to bat by the Kiwis.
Leading Kiwi paceman Shane Bond was in destructive form, taking 5-23.
Lou Vincent and Stephen Fleming needed just 27 overs to knock off the runs, Vincent settling matters with a six.
He finished on 73 after smashing Mitchell Johnson a dozen rows back over long leg.
Skipper Fleming was under severe pressure going into the series after a succession of low scores and defeats.
But he looked back to his old self, making 70 off just 76 balls.
In the second over Phil Jaques played an awful shot off Bond, spooning a catch to mid-off.
The score had advanced to 16 by the time Brad Haddin's stumps were re-arranged by Bond; already the tourists were in trouble.
Stand-in captain Michael Hussey top-scored with 42, but the support was intermittent with neither Matthew Hayden nor Brad Hodge staying long enough to effect a recovery.
From 86-3, the innings unravelled quickly, Mark Gillespie and Dan Vettori both chipping in with two wickets.
The stand-out wicket was a stunning return catch taken by Bond, low to his right, to end Cameron White's innings on 13.
Australia needed early wickets to put New Zealand under pressure, but Glenn McGrath and Nathan Bracken were unable to oblige.
Fleming and Vincent were then brutal on Johnson and Shane Watson and the home supporters lapped it all up.
There are two fixtures left in the Chapple-Hadlee Trophy before the teams can concentrate on World Cup preparation.
