    White Ferns survive middle order collapse to level Twenty20 series against Australia

    The White Ferns have survived a middle order collapse to level the Twenty20 series against Australia at one-all, clinching a thrilling last ball win in the second match

    New Zealand's won by four wickets in Napier chasing down the 130 run target with Maddy Green scoring a four off the last ball with three required.

    Frankie Mackay had put the hosts on top with 46 off 39 on a troublesome calf, but when she was dismissed to make it 81 for three it triggered a collapse that saw the Ferns slip to 101 for six.

    However, Green and Hannah Rowe combined for a 30 run unbeaten seventh wicket stand for the win.

    Mackay, who earlier took two for 20 in the bowling effort, has told Spark Sport her side is thrilled.

    The series decider is Thursday at Eden Park.
