View dismissal BB McCullum c †Haddin b Pattinson 16 98 44 2 0 36.36
19.1 McCullum has to go, Australia completely on top now, couldn't resist poking at a full, swinging, tempting delivery outside off that nipped away, it drew him into playing a shot and he got a faint nick straight to Haddin. All that patience and restraint and steel he'd displayed to get his far has been washed away 60/5
View dismissal MJ Guptill c †Haddin b Siddle 3 7 3 0 0 100.00
1.2 Siddle strikes! What a beauty! Just the right amount of movement, a hint of away movement after pitching on a good length on middle, Guptill played inside the line to that one, driving forward and nicked it straight to the keeper 10/1
View dismissal JD Ryder lbw b Pattinson 0 10 6 0 0 0.00
2.6 appeal for lbw, Clarke has called for a review, swung in and rapped Ryder on the pads near leg stump, the bat made contact with the pad as Ryder was trying to close the face on that fullish delivery. Hot Spot left the mark but to me it seems it was the bat making contact with the pad and not the inside edge but it's what the umpire thinks that counts. Ball-tracking shows the impact was in line with the stumps and the ball would have gone on to hit leg stump. Nigel Llong reverses his decision, it's out and Ryder has to walk back. 11/2
View dismissal LRPL Taylor* lbw b Siddle 6 22 18 0 0 33.33
7.4 Siddle strikes again, the umpire gives it out and Taylor calls for the review. Landed on a good length outside off stump and nipped back in sharply, Taylor didn't read it well, opted to leave and was struck on the pads, the umpire gave it out immediately once the appeal was made but Taylor wasn't convinced. Called for a review, thinking it may have gone over the stumps but ball-tracking shows the ball would have taken off the bails. It's the umpire's call, and he upholds the decision. Three down, New Zealand are in trouble. 25/3
View dismissal KS Williamson c †Haddin b Starc 19 49 41 2 0 46.34
18.2 caught-behind, caught down the leg side, a fortunate breakthrough for Starc, clear impact with the bat, down the leg side and Williamson chased it, trying to glance it down to the fine-leg boundary, made contact but it wasn't far enough from Haddin who dived to his left to complete a good catch, four down now 56/4
View dismissal DG Brownlie b Pattinson 56 114 85 10 0 65.88
45.4 Oh dear, Brownlie's chopped it on, short ball and he's cut well so far this innings, it's something you'd back him pull off but this one nipped in slightly and he got an inside edge onto the stumps as he was targeting the point region, the end of a very good innings that promised much more 150/9
View dismissal RA Young b Pattinson 0 2 4 0 0 0.00
19.5 bowled'im! Young departs, angled in and then moved away and Young was shaping to leave that one alone after it pitched but ended up chopping it on just as he was doing it, six down and New Zealand are in tatters 60/6
View dismissal DAJ Bracewell c Clarke b Siddle 12 52 37 2 0 32.43
33.6 Siddle strikes again, another promising stand broken, Bracewell had hung in at one end, supporting his more fluent partner, but was tempted into driving at a perfectly pitched-up delivery outside off that moved away, got a healthy edge straight to Clarke at first slip 105/7
View dismissal TG Southee b Starc 18 46 32 3 0 56.25
44.1 Brownlie's stranded, Southee chases a wide delivery from Starc, aiming to strike that through cover and drags it onto the stumps. That's two lower-order partnerships that showed some mettle, only to be cut short by avoidable shots 146/8

8.4 Martin strikes on his birthday! Pitched on a length on the off and Warner is sucked into the drive, walks forward to drive it through mid-off and it moves away to take the outside edge, Ross Taylor takes it comfortably at first slip 24/2
View dismissal PJ Hughes c Guptill b Martin 4 11 5 1 0 80.00
2.1 Martin strikes! Hughes is caught in the slips once again, the pressure on him grows, lovely delivery in the channel outside off, shaping away from the left-hander, leant forward to defend and it took the outside edge as it moved away, Guptill made no mistake at second slip. Tried to defend there with a slightly open face did Hughes 7/1
View dismissal UT Khawaja c †Young b Martin 7 78 51 0 0 13.72
18.6 Khawaja has to go! Martin gets three, he's on a bit of a roll is the birthday boy, good length and just some away movement off the pitch there, it drew Khawaja forward who couldn't resist a poke, he'd been leaving a lot of those deliveries for much of his innings, got a faint edge and Young made no mistake 35/4
View dismissal RT Ponting lbw b Southee 5 29 16 0 0 31.25
15.2 Ponting walked even before he was given out! He knew he was gone, landed on a good length on the off and moved back in further, Ponting had moved across and was caught in several minds about what to do with it, whether to play it to mid-on, or midwicket or squarer or leave it and in the end he didn't do any, was too late in bringing his bat down and by the time he did, the ball had struck him in line with middle, plumb. Again, he was surprised by the movement. 31/3
View dismissal MJ Clarke* b Bracewell 22 81 56 1 0 39.28
31.5 Rewind to Ashes 2005, Simon Jones to Clarke at Old Trafford. The only difference is that that it was reverse-swing that had a hand in the dismissal then. In this case, it was some inward movement off the pitch and a big misjudgement on the part of Clarke, landed short of a good length outside off and nipped in and he left that be, not expecting it to dart back in. Off-stump knocked back 75/7
View dismissal MEK Hussey c †Young b Boult 8 28 16 1 0 50.00
24.6 Maiden Test wicket for Boult, was not flustered by the pull the previous ball, short of a good length this time just on the off stump and got it to nip away, Hussey was looking to leave that one but that decision came a little late and feathered it to the wicketkeeper just as he was about to shoulder arms, Young was alert and dived foward and low to take a good catch 58/5

Four in four for Martin, Hughes and Guptill 72/1

34.6 to Khawaja, edged and Khawaja perishes chasing a wide one, just when Australia had a sound partnership going, brilliantly taken by Taylor at first slip, his view would have been obstructed partly by Guptill who dived to his right from second slip but he held on, full and wide and Khawaja tried to cream that through the covers, didn't quite work out that way 122/2

54.2 to Haddin, Haddin goes, a significant blow as he can get runs quickly, pitched on a length outside off and Southee continues to get it to swing away, chased it did Haddin and got a thick edge, straight into the hands of Taylor at first slip 192/6
54.5 to Siddle, New Zealand are ahead now, Siddle goes! Fishing for the away going delivery, swinging away, Siddle prods at that one, gets a thick edge and Ryder at second slip makes no mistake, moving low to his left 194/7

45.4 to Ponting, did that stop on Ponting? Bracewell bowled that short of a good length and he mistimed it completely, punching it away from his body straight into the hands of extra cover, Ponting walks back to a standing ovation. The umpire checked again for a no-ball but Bracewell was safe there 159/3
47.5 to Clarke, New Zealand have fought back, this is getting close, pitched up outside off and Clarke is sucked into playing the drive, it moves away after pitching, Clarke gets a thick outside edge and Taylor snaps it at first slip on the second attempt 159/4
47.6 to Hussey, It seems like we are, Bracewell has struck and spiced up this game even more, full delivery swinging in to the left-hander, lands on leg and straightens, Hussey closes the face on that one, misses and is struck in line. Asad Rauf probably reckons it's missing leg and gives it not out but Taylor calls for a review, and replays show it would have taken leg stump, Rauf has to reverse his decision and raises his finger sparking celebrations in the New Zealand camp 159/5
55.4 to Pattinson, New Zealan are on top now. The world has turned after lunch. Pattinson chases a wide one and the slips have been brilliant today, pitched it on a length and it was away-going delivery, Pattinson reached for that one and got a thick edge and Guptill snapped it easily at second slip 199/8
55.6 to Starc, Bracewell's struck, what a ripper, nipped back in from the off stump and Starc had no answer, was cleaned up, that knocked middle and off, significant movement back in towards middle and Bracewell's taken five, New Zealand on the brink of a famous win 199/9
63.4 to Lyon, Bracewell seals it for New Zealand! Got that to nip back in from outside off, closed the face on that one but it beat him through the gate, what a Test match but fittingly, it was Bracewell who finished it off, securing his team's first win over Australia since March 1993. It's their first Test win in Australia since 1985 233/10
