Hadlee, Chappell, Crowe, Cairns, Border, Larsen, Warne, Rutherford and Gilchrist...just some of the cricket greats who have fought The Battle for the Tasman.

Hosted by Ian Chappell, The Battle for the Tasman chronicles the hard fought and incredible one-day internationals between traditional sporting rivals, Australia and New Zealand.

From 1980 through to today, six classic matches games have been chosen for you to enjoy. Each game showcases big hitting, inspiring bowling and thrilling finishes that will have you on the edge of your seat.

Of course, The Battle for the Tasman would not be complete without Richie Benaud's incisive look at the moment that sent Australian and New Zealand relations into a tailspin: the infamous Underarm Incident.

From the first ball to the last over, through all the changing fashions in coloured cricket clothing, this is exceptional and entertaining international cricket.

So take your seat, press play, and let The Battle for the Tasman begin.
