Match Notes

  • The art of lion-taming

    Gideon Haigh watches as New Zealand make Waugh's dominators fight for survival

  • New kid in town

    Don Cameron looks on as Lou Vincent makes a debut most audacious

  • Australia survives extraordinary Test of mettle

    By the time the last ball was bowled in this Third Test between Australia and New Zealand, the scoreboard at the WACA Ground in Perth was indicating a draw

  • Australia condemned to final day fight

    A troubled Australia will start the final day of the Third Test with just eight second innings wickets in tact and thus battling for survival after another six hours of New Zealand dominance at the WACA Ground in Perth today.

  • Warne down as Kiwis clutch valuable lead

    It was down and very nearly out at times, but Shane Warne somehow found a way to hoist a punchdrunk Australia off the canvas on a frenetic third day of the Third Test against New Zealand at the WACA Ground in Perth today
