As Fleming won the toss and chose to bat at McLean Park, the former Black Caps captain fell for a five ball duck, losing his stumps to a pinpoint yorker from the youngest Barrett brother.

Luke Ronchi would play out the final ball of the over, Barrett starting his spell with a wicket maiden.

He wasn't done there, though. Barrett removed Ronchi for five in his next over, leaving Team Cricket in trouble early at 6/2.

Barrett is no stranger to cricket, having represented Central Districts as a youngster, as well as playing a match-winning knock in last year's edition in Christchurch.
