Bond says Australia not what they once were

Unbeaten at home this summer the Australian cricketers arrive in Wellington today but they're not the team they once were says BlackCaps fast bowler Shane Bond.

New Zealand and Australia will play two Twenty-20 matches, five one dayers and two tests.

The return of Bond from injury gives the New Zealand bowling attack some much needed firepower and without the likes of Glen McGrath and Shane Warne, Bond believes the teams are evenly matched.
