David Warner hit his seventh one-day century of the year as Australia sealed a 3-0 series whitewash over New Zealand with a 117-run win in Melbourne.

The opener, who made 156 off 128 deliveries, was run out off the final ball of Australia's 264-8. The next highest score was Travis Head's 37.

Mitchell Starc took 3-34 as New Zealand were bowled out for 147 with almost 14 overs unused at the MCG.

Only Sachin Tendulkar (nine) has made more ODI hundreds in a calendar year.

Warner, whose century was his second in successive games and fourth in his six matches, has scored 1,388 runs at an average of 63.09 in 23 ODIs in 2016.

Australia beat New Zealand by 68 runs in Sydney and 116 runs in Canberra in the first two matches of the series.

Australia begin a three-Test series against Pakistan on Thursday in Brisbane, while New Zealand host Bangladesh in a limited-overs series starting on 26 December.
