Johnson to Southee, OUT, length ball and Southee who has no faith in Martin as he swings to mid wicket, big noise as the ball passes the bat. The Australians are confident and Southee is given out but he refers the decision instantly. Clearly a noise as the ball passes the bat but nothing from hot spot. The replay suggests there is no contact with the bat but no concrete evidence to reverse the decision. Unlucky for Southee but great news for this Australian side who has come out this morning and done the business with some good aggressive bowling

TG Southee c †Haddin b Johnson 5 (18m 9b 1x4 0x6) SR: 55.55

New Zealand will be devastated as they have shown no back bone on the third day and have been cleaned up by a very clinical display from an amped up Australian pace attack that looks focused and energetic. That is 12.1 overs bowled this morning for 49 runs and 6 wickets. The highlights package is not a pretty sight for the New Zealanders. Ricky Ponting has enforced the follow on and we will see MacIntosh and Watling back at the crease in a few moments time
