he's done it! Vettori's hit the winning run! Bracken bowls a full ball outside off stump, he was looking for the yorker no doubt.Vettori loves width outside off, he loves the cut, and he places the ball through backward point and yells in triumph
9.50 pm: What a superb low-scoring thriller at the WACA. New Zealand pip Australia by two wickets off the last ball. They'll be mighty thrilled with the effort but it should have never got this close.
Kyle Mills is the Player of the Match for taking four wickets and then scoring 26 runs just when the chase got really tense. The next game is on Friday at the MCG, do join us for that. Thank you for your emails, on behalf of today's commentary team (Jamie, Sid R, and Kanishkaa) this is George Binoy signing off. Good night!

a fabulous catch by Clarke and we have a twist in the tale here, Bracken pitches it up outside off, he walks across his stumps, reaches forward and slices it on the up to backward point, Clarke flings himself to his left and cups it with both hands
