Australia have won the series two-nil. They win this test in Hamilton by 176 runs. New Zealand were always in trouble after having only posted a 33 run lead in the first innings undoing the great work by their bowlers on day one. Australia's second innings total swung the game in their favour. Simon Katich's hundred was the highlight but they had superb contributions all the way through the order. And Mitchell Johnson has cleaned up New Zealand in the fourth innings with 6 wickets to finish with 10 for the match.
So Australia win the series 2-0 after a dominant 10-wicket win in Wellington. New Zealand's inexperience was exposed by a very settled and confident Australian outfit. New Zealand don't play another test until they tour the subcontinent at the end of the year. Australia travel to England in July to play the shambolic Pakistan in two-tests before gearing up for the Ashes in November.
Man of the Match - Mitchell Johnson "I've enjoyed the tour. It's been great. To finish it off like we have today, it's been a great summer for the boys. It's always nice to contribute and be a part of this side"
There was no man of the series named at the presentation ceremony. Both captians thanked the crowd, sponsors, and their opponents.
That is it as far as cricinfo's live commentary coverage of the Trans-Tasman trophy is concerned. Don't forget to read Peter English's bulletin and Brydon Coverdale's coverage from Hamilton of the press conferences and the fall-out from this match.
