Commentary

I don't think even the Australians would have expected such an easy outing today. It was one bad day for New Zealand where everything went horribly wrong. Something for the two Johns - Wright and Buchanan - to ponder over. But we all know they're a much better team than this so no need to despair. Australia had the worst of days at Newlands not too long ago. Happens to the best of them.

The players have all the time in the world now to sign autographs.

We'll let you know who the Man of the Match is as soon as we receive word.

The Man of the Match is James Pattinson. Thanks for pointing out the error about Bracewell picking up the award in his debut match. I must have been dreaming! I really need to catch up on sleep. Don't ask!

That's all we can bring to you for now I'm afraid. No pictures of the presentation unfortunately. There's of course the report by Brydon Coverdale and analysis by Dan Brettig to keep you going. Thanks for the mails and your company. We'll see you again soon. Cheers (on behalf of Sid Talya, Nitin and Raghav) !

Bracewell to Warner, FOUR runs, so Warner does the honours! Short outside the off stump and he fetches it and clubs it high over mid-on, too easy for Warner, Australia are 1-0 up

Bracewell to Warner, FOUR runs, he overpitches first up, Warner was waiting for it with a straight bat, defensive punch past the bowler and mid-off

It's Bracewell now

Martin to Khawaja, no run, slants across the left-hander, he safely lets it go, that ends a very good over, pity he has just eight runs to defend
