TOTAL130.2 Ov (RR: 4.26, 559 Mins)556/4d
Fall of wickets: 1-161 (Joe Burns, 38.5 ov), 2-311 (David Warner, 70.4 ov), 3-399 (Steven Smith, 93.3 ov), 4-556 (Usman Khawaja, 130.2 ov)
38.5 to JA Burns, and Southee has broken the stand. Lovely length outside off, and again Burns pokes away from his body. Southee gets it to leave him off the pitch, and Watling dives to his right to pouch the edge. 161/1
93.3 to SPD Smith, bowled him! Near-perfect left-armer's delivery, straightening a touch from a good length after pitching on off stump. Would have missed off stump if Smith hadn't helped it through, but the angle opened up the gap and the swing found the inside edge. Smith was playing with a stiff front leg, with no knee bend, and his pad came in the way of his bat-swing as he aimed a drive towards mid-off. 399/3
70.4 to DA Warner, what a catch, Ross Taylor! That's fullish and wide, and Warner throws everything at it. The ball flew off the edge, high over first slip, and he timed his jump perfectly with his rigtht arm fully outstretched. End of an awesome innings from Warner, he's put Australia in a fantastic position. 311/2
130.2 to UT Khawaja, gone, a wicket for Williamson. And Australia have declared. Looks to reverse-sweep a full, flat one, and scoops a catch to backward point, who dives forward to scoop it up low. 556/4

Fall of wickets: 1-56 (Martin Guptill, 17.1 ov), 2-102 (Tom Latham, 30.1 ov), 3-105 (Ross Taylor, 31.3 ov), 4-114 (Brendon McCullum, 33.2 ov), 5-118 (James Neesham, 34.2 ov), 6-185 (BJ Watling, 51.1 ov), 7-231 (Mark Craig, 61.1 ov), 8-273 (Doug Bracewell, 74.4 ov), 9-310 (Tim Southee, 80.5 ov), 10-317 (Kane Williamson, 82.2 ov)
30.1 to TWM Latham, gone! length ball angling in towards off stump, and Latham looks to play a punchy drive, on the up, and the ball slices off the outside half straight to point. Wasn't the right length to be playing a front-foot drive, even a drive on the up. 102/2
34.2 to JDS Neesham, bowled him! Neesham's feet are absolutely rooted to the spot, thanks to Starc's pace, and the full ball cannons off the front pad into the stumps as he looks to play across the line. 118/5
80.5 to TG Southee, clatter. Clears his front leg again, and aims for the big heave over mid-on. Swings in, misses the bat by a long way, and takes out off stump. 310/9
82.2 to KS Williamson, full outside off, a bit of inswing, and Williamson goes for the aggresive drive, aiming through mid-off, and the ball kisses his inside edge through to the keeper to end a wonderful innings. 317/10
31.3 to LRPL Taylor, gone! The left-armers are turning it on! Back of a length, angling away from off stump. Taylor had shuffled a long way across, and ended up playing at one he could otherwise have left. Played quite close to his body, but the extra bounce produced the edge off the shoulder of the bat into second slip's lap. 105/3
33.2 to BB McCullum, another one falls! That was a good, solid length ball angling away, and McCullum goes for an ill-advised on-the-up punch. Extra bounce, and the edge carries at chest height to first slip. 114/4
51.1 to BJ Watling, beauty, he's struck first ball. A bit of reverse on that, is there? Definitely seemed to shape away a touch from back of a length and Watling goes for the back foot punch, further away from his body than he would have liked, and gets a thin edge through to the keeper. 185/6
17.1 to MJ Guptill, gone! That's a lovely delivery from Hazlewood, angling into off stump, fullish side of good length, and straightens away. Guptill is half-forward to defend, and third slip takes the thick edge very well, diving low to his right. 56/1
61.1 to MD Craig, oh no, what have you done? Poor shot, with Williamson playing so well at the other end. Flighted ball from Lyon, and he stepped out of his crease, looking for the big shot. Ball dips on him, turns away, and he slices the simplest of catches to point. 231/7
74.4 to DAJ Bracewell, bowled him! Excellent length, close to off stump, and maybe some inward movement too. Bracewell comes forward to defend, a small gap between bat and pad and he inside-edges onto his stumps. 273/8

TOTAL42 Ov (RR: 6.28)264/4d
Fall of wickets: 1-237 (David Warner, 37.4 ov), 2-254 (Joe Burns, 39.2 ov), 3-258 (Steven Smith, 40.2 ov), 4-263 (Mitchell Marsh, 41.5 ov)
40.2 to SPD Smith, another wicket. Or is it? It's full and wide and Smith backs away and slices it in the air. Williamson dives forward at point and comes up with the ball in his hand. Doesn't look too animated, perhaps not sure if he's caught it cleanly or not. They're checking upstairs now. It's not a bump ball, he's sliced it off the lower part of the bat face. Williamson, diving left, has his fingers around the upper part before a couple of them appear underneath. Did the leather touch the grass before that happened? Hard to tell. It's given out. And on the balance of probabilities, it seemed out.. 258/3
37.4 to DA Warner, and now he connects with the switch hit, but picks out the fielder at the deep. Tossed up outside leg (off), and he slog-sweeps straight down the throat of sweeper cover (deep midwicket). Standing ovation as he walks back to the dressing room. 237/1
39.2 to JA Burns, and that's Craig's second wicket. Comes down the track to hit over the top, ball doesn't turn as expected, and he hits it straighter than he'd like, and not off the middle, straight down the throat of long-on. Every single New Zealand player in his vicinity runs up to him for a back-slap or a handshake as he walks off to loud cheers from his home crowd. He's just looked utterly at home in Test cricket. 254/2
41.5 to MR Marsh, gone. Length ball on off stump, a bit of turn, and he gets caught up in an awkward position, with his front foot planted heavily down the pitch, nowhere near the pitch of the ball, and too cramped to do anything apart from flick it in the air, straight to short midwicket. 263/4

TOTAL88.3 Ov (RR: 3.33)295
Fall of wickets: 1-44 (Tom Latham, 22.3 ov), 2-98 (Martin Guptill, 41.3 ov), 3-136 (Kane Williamson, 51.1 ov), 4-165 (Ross Taylor, 57.5 ov), 5-205 (James Neesham, 68.4 ov), 6-242 (BJ Watling, 77.3 ov), 7-243 (Brendon McCullum, 78.3 ov), 8-243 (Doug Bracewell, 78.4 ov), 9-249 (Tim Southee, 80.2 ov), 10-295 (Trent Boult, 88.3 ov)
22.3 to TWM Latham, yorker, gets some late swing into the left-hander, and it's given lbw almost as soon as he turns around to appeal. Hits him flush on the front toe, and Latham walks off after consulting with his opening partner whether or not to review. Clipping leg stump, according to ball-tracking. Impact on middle, right up on the crease.. 44/1
88.3 to TA Boult, full, slanting away in the channel, and Australia have won. Boult makes room to drive that through extra cover, and he gets a healthy edge through to Nevill. 295/10
68.4 to JDS Neesham, wow. This one bounces higher, dug in with extra effort, and Neesham can't do much about it, it's right on target, neck-high, and he jumps back, fends at it, takes his eye off the ball, and pops it up to short leg off the bat handle. 205/5
57.5 to LRPL Taylor, short ball does the trick. Was rising over the left shoulder, and Taylor went half-heartedly at the hook. Ball pops up for an easy catch to first slip, and it's gone off the wristband of the glove. Seemed to be a touch too early into the shot. 165/4
80.2 to TG Southee, full outswinger outside off, and it looks like Southee has nicked it to the keeper. Looked to smash it over mid-on, and it seemed like an obvious nick, but he's reviewed the out decision. Maybe it was bat on ground. Tiny Hotspot mark, but it's at the bottom of the bat rather than where it seemed to hit the edge, but Snicko goes crazy at the point where the ball is up next to the edge, so the third umpire has gone with the umpire's decision. Only thing that could have possibly saved the batsman was that the potential outside edge and the potential bat-on-ground seemed to happen at the same time. 249/9
78.3 to BB McCullum, keeps a bit low and comes in off the pitch as McCullum jumps back to work a back-of-a-length ball into the leg side, and there are two appeals. One for lbw, one for a catch at slip as Smith dives forward to grab it low. Nigel Llong raises his fingers, gestures to indicate he gave it out caught, and replays have shown quite clearly that it went straight off the flap of the pad. McCullum doesn't look happy as he walks off. New Zealand have no reviews left, and are eight balls away from regaining them. Hit him on the jump too. Will be interesting to see if it was lbw. 243/7
78.4 to DAJ Bracewell, full and inswinging, and Marsh is on a hat-trick. Right up there, and it pinned Bracewell's front pad on the crease as he aimed an on-drive at it. Looked plumb on first viewing, and ball-tracking thinks so too. Hitting middle and leg stump. 243/8
41.3 to MJ Guptill, and there's the wicket! Quicker, flatter, and it turned in just a touch. Guptill went back and across to defend, and was done in by the extra pace, was a little late getting across and played marginally down the wrong line. The ball took his outside edge, simple catch to slip. 98/2
51.1 to KS Williamson, given! Williamson goes for the pull and the ball turns in from outside off to strike him on the upper part of the back thigh. Williamson has reviewed. His back leg was bent, but it still looked a little high, let's see. Impact right on the edge of off stump, and it's clipping the upper edge of the bails. Umpire's call. That's a little unfortunate, I think.. 136/3
77.3 to BJ Watling, given! Went deep in his crease and looked to work this into the leg side. Spun more than he expected, perhaps, to beat his inside edge and hit his pad. He's reviewed it. Let's see. Hit in front of middle and off, on the flap of the pad. Hitting the top of leg stump, a decent chunk of it, says ball-tracking, and Watling has to walk back. Didn't really execute that shot too well.. 242/6
