The Vantage Black Sticks Men have drawn 1-1 with trans-Tasman rivals Australia in their opening game at the Sultan Azlan Shah Cup in Malaysia.<br>

Following a two hour delay due to a lightning storm, the Kiwis played a staunch game against Kookaburras with neither side scoring in the first half.<br>

Goalkeeper Devon Manchester, playing his 100<sup>th</sup> tests, was outstanding in shutting down any chances from Australia includes several penalty corners.<br>
<br>
The Kookaburras were first to score just two minutes into the second half with Tom Craig finding some space in the circle to score a field goal.<br>
<br>
The Black Sticks equalised in the 52<sup>nd</sup> minute when Dominic Newman struck from the field to bring the game back to level terms.<br>
<br>
New Zealand played strongly on both attack and defence in the dying minutes but weren’t quite able to find a winning goal.<br>
