Fall of wickets: 1-10 (Martin Guptill, 4.4 ov), 2-91 (Devon Conway, 22.5 ov), 3-127 (Kane Williamson, 29.6 ov), 4-179 (Daryl Mitchell, 41.1 ov), 5-186 (Tom Latham, 41.5 ov), 6-191 (Michael Bracewell, 43.4 ov), 7-210 (James Neesham, 46.4 ov), 8-220 (Matt Henry, 48.2 ov), 9-223 (Mitchell Santner, 48.6 ov)
4.4 to MJ Guptill, Stunner from Maxwell, diving to his left. One-handed pluck from thin air and Guptill has to walk back. Fuller and angling away on off, he looks to push at that and takes a thick outside edge. The ball flies to the left of backward point where the Big Show puts on a show. And just stretches his arms matter of factly after pulling off a screamer.. 10/1
46.4 to JDS Neesham, Tickled to Carey! Back of a length slower one, Neesham looks to walk across and scoop it over the wicketkeeper. He only manages to feather it behind.. 210/7
48.2 to MJ Henry, Good diving take by Starc at midwicket. Full length ball around off, Henry looks to whack it over the ring on the leg side. But he fails to get the desired elevation with the bat turning in his hands.. 220/8
48.6 to MJ Santner, Soft, soft dismissal! Santner cannot believe it. Slower one down the leg side, would have been a wide. But he looks to flick it fine and gets a feather of an edge, Carey does the rest. Hopes of a possible high finish dashed.. 223/9
22.5 to DP Conway, loud and confident appeal for lbw, and given! Conway consults Williamson and reviews in time. Conway went for the sweep this time, the ball drifted and pitched around off and was turning in. It hit him right in front, we've to check for any edge and ball-tracking now. Nothing on Snicko, and it's headed right for the stumps, Conway goes and New Zealand lose a review. 91/2
29.6 to KS Williamson, Maxwell strikes, Williamson finds deep midwicket well inside the boundary! Williamson had been attacking every over over so, and Maxwell was expecting that this over. He slows it down again on middle and leg, and Williamson decides to go for the big shot, a sweep which he might have played a bit too early. It went in the air and gave Warner enough time to get under it in the deep. 127/3
41.1 to DJ Mitchell, Oh well! Mitchell has chipped this straight to midwicket and it's a big wicket. Tossed up on a length around middle and leg, slowed it down as well. He comes down the track to chip it over the fielder in the ring but failed to get the desired elevation. He had not gotten to the pitch of the ball either and ended up merely offering Smith the simplest of chances.. 179/4
41.5 to TWM Latham, Two wickets in the over for Maxwell and the set Latham departs. Australia on a roll at the death and Latham would be kicking himself. Tossed up around middle, he looks to sweep it over short fine leg but picks out Zampa there. Third batter to be dismissed in the forties today for New Zealand.. 186/5
43.4 to MG Bracewell, And this time Bracewell picks out the only man in the ring in front of square on the off side. Glenn 'Golden Arm' Maxwell on a roll today. Looks to come down the track and tonk the length ball over covers but finds Smith to perfection. New Zealand have lost their last three wickets for just 12 runs.. 191/6

Fall of wickets: 1-11 (Aaron Finch, 2.4 ov), 2-19 (Steven Smith, 4.3 ov), 3-27 (Marnus Labuschagne, 6.6 ov), 4-27 (David Warner, 7.2 ov), 5-44 (Marcus Stoinis, 11.6 ov), 6-202 (Alex Carey, 39.1 ov), 7-205 (Glenn Maxwell, 40.4 ov), 8-207 (Mitchell Starc, 41.1 ov)
2.4 to AJ Finch, swinging in, struck in front and loud appeal for lbw, the umpire gives it, and Finch reviews! It's all happening here. A trademark inswinging ball from Boult on middle stump, beats the inside edge, hits him plumb in front, and there's nothing on Snicko with a gap between bat and ball. That's hitting middle of middle, plumb as anything and Australia have lost a review early. Finch's rut continues. 11/1
4.3 to SPD Smith, chopped on, Boult strikes again! Boult threatens both edges of Smith, this time he swings it in, Smith gets only the inside edge and top of the stumps while driving the ball. 19/2
6.6 to M Labuschagne, Boult strikes for the third time and Labuschagne starts to walk back. This is an exhibition of swing bowling that Boult is putting on in Cairns. Once again spears a full, inswinger around middle and leg, beats his defense to pin him on the front pad. Labuschagne talks to Warner about the review but doesn't seem to confident and neither gets the nod from his partner. Superb bowling this.. 27/3
40.4 to GJ Maxwell, holes out to deep backward square, Boult strikes in his last over! Another big wicket down, Maxwell flicks the ball off his pads behind square, it sails towards the boundary before it's cut off by the tall Jimmy Neesham at the rope. 205/7
7.2 to DA Warner, Crunched... straight to the fielder in the deep in front of square on the leg side. Warner cannot help but smile sheepishly. The shot shows how good a touch he is in and tonight, it has contributed to his downfall. Short in length, he picks the length early plays the pull but finds Bracewell to absolute perfection. Australia's in-form batter finds himself in the dugout now.. 27/4
11.6 to MP Stoinis, straight through and Stoinis is gone too! Henry roars. Excellent ball from Henry to jag this one in off back of length which keeps Stoinis on the back foot, but he's defending this one well outside the line, and the ball sneaks through the bat-pad gap to hit middle. The bails go flying. 44/5
39.1 to AT Carey, pulled straight to mid-on! They have been attacking of late and Carey has given it away by pulling an innocuous short ball straight to Henry at mid-on. 202/6
41.1 to MA Starc, catching practice to midwicket! What on earth is going on here, Australia are throwing wickets away when they're so close to the target. An innocuous delivery from Ferguson on the pads, and Starc has chipped it straight into the hands of Mitchell who didn't have to move an inch. It might have been the extra bounce of the cross-seamed delivery. 207/8
