Match factsDecember 4, 2016 Start time 1420 local (0320 GMT)Big PictureIn 2004, the Chappell-Hadlee Trophy was struck. Cheap Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim Jerseys . In 2010, it was struck off. Not officially, of course, but the idea of an annual one-day series between Australia and New Zealand was quietly forgotten. It was as if these neighbours, until then welcoming each other with open arms, had fallen out over some petty matter like a tree hanging over the back fence. When they crossed paths at someone elses place, they would nod politely - as when the trophy was put up for grabs in their match at the 2011 World Cup in India - but neither would invite the other into their home. But at the World Cup last year, they kissed and made up, decided that actually that tree had plenty of tasty fruit, and why couldnt they just share it, after all.As a result, having gone nearly six years without a standalone Chappell-Hadlee series, we now have three in the space of 12 months. In February, New Zealand won at home. The teams now meet in Australia, and next February, they again play in New Zealand. It is curious scheduling for both sides. New Zealand rushed to Australia the day after winning a home Test series against Pakistan, but at least they can stay in white-ball mode for a while: their next commitments are home ODIs and T20s against Bangladesh. Australia have switched almost as quickly from Test mode, but unlike New Zealand, they must hastily change back into a Test mindset as soon as these three games are over, as they host Pakistan for three Tests.In the meantime, we can sit back and enjoy what should be a fine one-day series. If the World Cup final last year was a bit of an anticlimax, the pool game in Auckland showed how thrilling contests between these two teams can be. It was a low-scoring affair, dominated by the pace and swing of Mitchell Starc and Trent Boult - both of whom will be playing in this series - and it went down to the last wicket. Both teams have had significant personnel changes since that World Cup, though: from that match alone, Brendon McCullum, Daniel Vettori, Grant Elliott, Michael Clarke, Shane Watson, Brad Haddin and Mitchell Johnson have all retired.New Zealand enter this series missing some important players: Ross Taylor is recovering from eye surgery, while Adam Milne, Mitchell McClenaghan and Corey Anderson are all out injured. But they could unleash the pace of Lockie Ferguson, who at his best can hit 150kph, and still have some fine names throughout their batting and bowling groups. Australia come in at full strength, with Josh Hazlewood and Mitchell Starc back after resting from the tour of South Africa, and Steven Smiths men will be keen to put the focus back on the cricket after the Glenn Maxwell-Matthew Wade controversy in the lead-up.Form guide(last five completed matches, most recent first)? Australia: LLLLLNew Zealand: LWLWLIn the spotlightGlenn Maxwell hasnt played an ODI since the tour of the West Indies in June, having been left out of the squad for the tours of Sri Lanka and South Africa. If he wanted to slip quietly back into the side for this series, his pre-match comments on Matthew Wade and the Victorian batting-order have ended any hopes of that. Maxwell might just find himself under even more pressure to perform as a result - if he even finds himself in the XI at all.Martin Guptill is the No. 8-ranked ODI batsman in the world, boasts the second-highest score in ODI history (237*) and has struck 14 international centuries across formats. And yet, not a single hundred has come against Australia in 40 innings in Tests, ODIs and T20s. But Guptills last one-day series against Australia hinted at progress: he scored 90 in Auckland and was the leading scorer from both sides across the three-match Chappell-Hadlee series. But with Taylor injured and McCullum having retired since, the pressure is on Guptill once again to stand up as a senior batsman.Team newsAustralia have stressed that they will pick their strongest XI while this series is alive, and will refrain from resting fast bowlers as they did on the tour of South Africa. That should mean an attack based around Mitchell Starc, Josh Hazlewood and Pat Cummins. The main question is the balance of the middle order and allrounders, with Mitchell Marsh, Travis Head, Glenn Maxwell and James Faulkner potentially vying for just two positions. The uncapped Hilton Cartwright, named in the 14-man squad, has been released to play in the Sheffield Shield.Australia (possible) 1 David Warner, 2 Aaron Finch, 3 Steven Smith (capt), 4 George Bailey, 5 Mitchell Marsh, 6 Travis Head/Glenn Maxwell, 7 Matthew Wade (wk), 8 Mitchell Starc, 9 Adam Zampa, 10 Pat Cummins, 11 Josh Hazlewood.New Zealand have plenty of bowling options to choose from, with the uncapped Ferguson having a chance of playing.New Zealand (possible) 1 Tom Latham, 2 Martin Guptill, 3 Kane Williamson (capt), 4 Henry Nicholls, 5 Colin Munro, 6 James Neesham, 7 BJ Watling (wk), 8 Mitchell Santner, 9 Matt Henry/Lockie Ferguson/Colin de Grandhomme, 10 Tim Southee, 11 Trent Boult.Pitch and conditionsThe only ODI at the SCG last summer was a high-scoring affair in which India chased down 331 to beat Australia. There has been spin on offer at the ground in the Sheffield Shield this season, but expect the one-day surface to be good for batting. The forecast for Sunday is for a fine day and a top of 28 degrees centigrade.Stats and triviaThe worlds joint top ODI wicket-taker in 2016 is fit and available, but has been left out of Australias squad for this series: John Hastings, who has 29 victims at 24.13.Martin Guptill needs 45 runs to reach the 5000-run mark in ODIsThe Chappell-Hadlee series has not been played in Australia since February 2009Quotes Weve both come off playing Test matches, so weve got to be adaptable and turn things around with the white ball. Weve played pretty well here in Australia in one-day cricket, hopefully that will continue.Steven Smith Cheap MLB Jerseys .Y. - Nelson Mandela will be honoured by the New York Yankees with a plaque in Monument Park. Cheap Angels Jerseys Authentic . -- Los Angeles Lakers guard Jordan Farmar will be out for roughly four weeks after tearing his left hamstring. http://www.cheapangelsjerseys.com/ .S District Court against Major League Baseball, the Office of the Commissioner and his own union, the MLBPA. NEW YORK -- Baruch College gave 30 student-athletes more than $255,000 in improper benefits over the course of five years, NCAA officials said in a decision issued Thursday.The NCAA Division III Committee on Infractions said the schools former vice president for student affairs and enrollment management and its former head womens basketball coach both violated NCAA ethical conduct rules.As I stated unambiguously to the NCAA, Baruch College accepts, and takes full responsibility for, the fact that some improper benefits were made available to a limited number of student-athletes during the period from 2010-2015, Baruch Colleges President Mitchel B. Wallerstein said in a statement.The committee said in its report that it had not seen a high-level campus administrator who had such breadth and scope of responsibilities in an infractions case as the former vice president.The former vice president wanted to raise the profile of athletics at the college and as part of that effort he was closely involved in the recruitment, admission and awarding of financial aid for prospects and student-athletes, especially in the sport of womens basketball, Gerald Houlihan, a member of the infractions committee.The administrator and coach were not named in the report and university officials declined to name them.The former vice president, who was with the institution for 10 years, and former head womens basketball coach knowingly arranged or provided impermissible financial aid and extra benefits to student-athletes, according to the NCAA.However, the former vice president claimed he did not receive education on NCAA rules, therefore the violations were inadvertent. The former head womens basketball coach also said he had insufficient rules education, according to the NCAA.The penalties include four years of probation, a one-year postseason ban for the womens basketball team and prohibiting the coach and vice president from all athletically relaated duties for one year. Cheap MLB Jerseys Authentic. When asked about the possibility of an appeal, Baruch spokesperson Christina Latouf said the college will digest the information and respond at another time. The school in Manhattan has 18,000 students and 13 sports teams, according to its website.Violations included granting in-state residency based on athletics, providing impermissible financial aid, cash awards and extra benefits and choosing student-athletes for resident assistant positions when they were not qualified.The case started when Baruch College received two anonymous letters in early 2013 that alleged the former vice president provided two student-athletes improper financial aid. An internal investigation was conducted and a self-report was submitted to the NCAA enforcement staff in January 2014.Wallerstein said the college made some changes during the course of the NCAAs investigation, including revamping the role of the athletics director, appointing a new faculty athletics representative, establishing an athletics compliance team and improving training on student-athlete recruitment and financial aid.This was not the first time Baruch College was found to have committed major violations.In the 2004-05 and 2005-06 academic years, the womens basketball program was involved in a work-study program that wasnt monitored correctly and led to extra benefits and wages for work not completed. Penalties included one year probation, a $5,000 penalty, vacated wins, and a two-game suspension for an assistant coach.Houlihan said the prior case did not factor into the committees decision.I am committed to having an Athletics Program at Baruch College of which our students, faculty, staff, and the entire Baruch community can be proud and that is managed in an ethical and responsible fashion, Wallerstein said.
