Match Notes

  • Explosive Ryder livens draw

    The tour match may have ended in a draw, but there was no shortage of entertainment as Jesse Ryder equalled a first-class record for the most sixes in an innings - 16 - on his way to 175 at the Allan Border Field

  • Tourists build lead after Cowan century

    Ed Cowan and Matthew Wade fashioned innings of substance to help Australia A get within 28 runs of the New Zealand tourists' first innings in the tour match in Brisbane

  • Bracewell excels for tourists

    New Zealand's young fast bowler Doug Bracewell excelled with the bat then the ball as the tourists enjoyed another decent day against Australia A in the tour match in Brisbane

  • Nice to play with that sort of freedom - McCullum

    Brendon McCullum has said he was trying to place Australia A's bowlers, who were aspiring for a place in the national XI, under pressure

  • McCullum batters Test aspirant attack

    Brendon McCullum's blazing 146 from a mere 115 balls pushed the New Zealand tourists to a firm 4 for 290 against Australia A after a rain and bad light-shortened first day
