TOTAL133 Ov (RR: 4.20, 562 Mins)559/9d
Fall of wickets: 1-101 (Joe Burns, 22.4 ov), 2-403 (Usman Khawaja, 86.2 ov), 3-427 (David Warner, 95.4 ov), 4-462 (Steven Smith, 107.5 ov), 5-512 (Adam Voges, 122.3 ov), 6-539 (Mitchell Marsh, 128.4 ov), 7-547 (Peter Nevill, 131.1 ov), 8-547 (Mitchell Starc, 131.4 ov), 9-547 (Mitchell Johnson, 131.5 ov)
95.4 to DA Warner, and he is gone now! Finally. Warner has to go. Fishes at that from outside off, and gets a thick outside edge which flies to second slip. Craig takes it in front of his face. Big wicket. End of a monumental innings from Warner, he has put the game firmly in Australia's grasp. 427/3
122.3 to AC Voges, Voges goes now. Follows the delivery and chooses to drive, angled across and it takes the outside edge. Fantastic bowling to elicit the edge knowing Aus will be looking to keep that run-rate going. Juts a thin edge. 512/5
22.4 to JA Burns, finally a wicket. Finally some luck goes New Zealand's way. Burns has just changed his bat, but the bat has nothing to do with this dismissal. This is short of a length, Burns goes with a half-cut-half-push. The ball seams back in a little, takes the inside edge, and he is bowled. 101/1
107.5 to SPD Smith, interesting shot. He was looking really good until that. Full outside off, some swing away from Smith who stood his ground, and looked to go over the infield. He cleared his front foot too, more of a slog. A thick outside edge is easily and gratefully accepted. Smith won't be happy with the execution.. 462/4
86.2 to UT Khawaja, hang on. let me see if I can spell it. W-i-c-k-e-t. Oh they have finally got one. And I have just had a minor heart attack because they are checking the no-ball. It is not a no-ball. I can get back to writing the description of the wicket. Full ball, half-volley, slightly loose push, uppishly it goes, low to short cover's left. Taken. WACA Ground stands up to applaud. Khawaja raises his bat. Gets a pat on the back from Smith as the captain walks in. There is no way Smith is sending a nightwatchman here with runs for the taking. 403/2
128.4 to MR Marsh, what a catch Bracewell. Take a bow Doug. Looks like he has overstepped. Inches in it but he is over the line according to me. Very marginal call but the umpire decides it is fine. Hmm. Full and drilled back at Bracewell who is all reactions, takes an unbelievable effort to hold on to it. Marsh displaying all his might throughout the innings an now he has to go. Important wicket too for NZ.. 539/6
131.1 to PM Nevill, and Craig gets im. Tossed up outside off, Nevill comes down and tries to hit down the ground but the ball dips late, and bounces extra, no spin and Nevill is beaten. Watling has an easy dismissal to make and he does so. 547/7
131.4 to MA Starc, Starc goes now. Tossed up on off, Starc plants one foot forward, and crashes the ball high in the air. Doesn't get close to enough. The ball spins, and skews off the outside half of the bat in the air to the man at long-on.. 547/8
131.5 to MG Johnson, and he is gone now. Aus don't need to declare, if they are batting like this. Nice flight outside off, Johnson advances and looks to go wide over long-off. But it is wide outside off and the ball spins past. There is laziness all around. Watling thinks Johnson has edged it, but realises that Mitch has not yet bothered to make an attempt to make it back and finally whips off the bails with Johnson well short. 547/9

Fall of wickets: 1-6 (Martin Guptill, 2.1 ov), 2-87 (Tom Latham, 25.5 ov), 3-352 (Kane Williamson, 85.1 ov), 4-432 (Brendon McCullum, 103.4 ov), 5-447 (BJ Watling, 108.6 ov), 6-485 (Doug Bracewell, 120.6 ov), 7-525 (Mark Craig, 133.4 ov), 8-554 (Matt Henry, 138.1 ov), 9-587 (Tim Southee, 143.2 ov), 10-624 (Ross Taylor, 153.5 ov)
2.1 to MJ Guptill, and given. Full and straight and Guptill has to go. Late swing undoes Guptill. Comes back in as Guptill plays around his pad and is struck right in front of middle and leg. Latham advises him against the review. And rightly so.. 6/1
108.6 to BJ Watling, oh goodness! After all that he has done, after all that diligence and hardwork. Sometimes, life turns it around for you. And it is nice to see a wry smile on Starc. Very high full toss outside off, below the waist though. Watling steers a cut straight to point, Lyon makes up for his previous drop with a stunner. He stays low and takes a good catch low to his left.. 447/5
138.1 to MJ Henry, bowled im. Henry has to go. Terrific delivery. Full on middle, and angles away slightly, Henry plays inside the line like he has been doing all innings. He is beaten and the off stump is taken out. Starc has a deserving wicket.. 554/8
143.2 to TG Southee, and Starc gets the wicket. Low full toss on middle, Southee looks to drive but can only bunt the ball back to Starc who takes an easy return catch. Starc gets another and he will be quite happy with that. 587/9
85.1 to KS Williamson, Williamson goes! That new ball does the trick. What happened there. Short and wide outside off, KW plays the wrong stroke. Tries to drag that to the leg side but ends up lobbing a simple catch to mid-on. After 249 balls, he shows some emotion, as he shakes his head as he walks off. Terrific knock though, well played KW.. 352/3
120.6 to DAJ Bracewell, this time he gets the edge. No celebrations from Mitch. He has got his first. Full and wide again, there to be hit again and this time he gets closer to it but not close enough. Gets a thin outside edge for the keeper to take. Can the confidence of a wicket spark MJ back into action?. 485/6
25.5 to TWM Latham, Latham is gone, beautifully bowled. Latham nicks off to Smith. Nice change in pace and slows it up outside off, but it isn't too short. Latham is hanging on the back foot, and naughtily flirts at that, he did not have to. An outside edge is taken low to his left by Smith. The change works, and Smith is all smiles.. 87/2
133.4 to MD Craig, and Craig has to go now. Tossed up again, Lyon doesn't mind one good hit. Same loop and flight, Craig goes down to hit in the same spot but gets too close to the ball and skews it off the inside half of the bat to midwicket. Easy catch in front of his face. The bat may have turned in his hand too.. 525/7
153.5 to LRPL Taylor, caught at deep square leg, Jonny Wells the sub, takes the catch! No 300 for Taylor, but that is still a mounumental innings - the highest score ever made by a visiting batsman in Australia, broke a century-old record. Looks like he wanted to get quick move on and trusted his strong slog sweep to work for him. But Lyon's flight and the fact that this was outside off left just too much risk on the shot. Top-edged and taken nicely with a slide. Calm effort from Wells there. 624/10
103.4 to BB McCullum, how big will that prove to be? The umpire wants to check the front foot, but he is fine. McCullum has to go, beaten all ends up. Or did he play around that too much? Full and fast on middle and off, McCullum looks to tuck this into the leg side but fails to connect. The ball sneaks through between bat and pad and rattles the stumps. 432/4

2.1 to JA Burns, edged and gone! Burns goes. Terrific delivery, just unplayable. Full and swinging away, Burns fishes at that and gets a thick outside edge which carries to Taylor at first slip. Rosco takes an easy catch and NZ have one. Really good channels from Tim Southee, he had to play. 8/1
85.1 to AC Voges, .. and Southee strikes. Voges wants a review in a bid to overturn the on-field call of lbw. It is a fair ball. Full and on middle, Voges seeks to flick but does not connect as he is rapped on the pad. No signs of an inside edge. He toppled over the flick and the tracker shows that the ball would have just grazed the outside of the leg stump. Voges has to go. 294/5
98.5 to MG Johnson, Johnson is out, he walks back to warm applause. That's that, at least with the bat in international cricket. Back of a length and outside off, not all that short. He sets up for a pull and edges it behind, Watling pouches it. And Johnson finishes with 31 runs more than what Bradman scored in his last Test. 355/6
100.3 to PM Nevill, edged and caught behind ahead. Full outswinger, seduces Nevill into a drive. He only gets an outside edge, a healthy one and feeds a simple catch to his opposite number. Fourth wicket for Southee. 366/7
7.2 to DA Warner, and Warner has to go now. That is another poor delivery but Warner has picked the fielder at cover and has failed to keep his drive down. Against the run of play. Full and wide outside off, the drive was there to be played but Warner drove a bit lazily and did not keep it down. Latham holds on to a sharp chance. 46/2
68.1 to SPD Smith, Smith has nicked off! He shakes his head as he walks back. Good length and nibbles away slightly, Smith targets a punchy drive, perhaps through cover and only edges it behind. BJ Watling dives to his right and snaffles it. 270/3
71.6 to MR Marsh, an appeal for lbw, Marsh has been given out. He does not go for a review after consulting with Voges. Pretty full and snakes back in late to strike the back pad in front of middle. Two wickets in four overs for NZ. 277/4

10.2 to TWM Latham, Mitch J strikes and beams, his family is pumped. He waves to them I suppose. Lifting short ball rushes onto the left-handed opener at 147.1ks, Latham does not get hold of an attempted hook. He top-edges it as the ball balloons to long leg. Hazlewood runs in, plunges forward and completes a smart catch. 34/1
14.5 to MJ Guptill, bouncer and boom, Johnson style! Banged in at 141.5ks, rises and leaves Guptill in an awkward tangle. He hops up and pops it to short leg. This one carries low to Burns. 44/2
