45.0 - Siddle to Craig, FOUR, Craig gets another four. Short of length delivery outside off, Craig stays back and swings across the line, didn't get hold of the heave but got it in the gap wide of mid-on, who gives chase but only to come second

44.2 - Siddle to Craig, FOUR, even better this time. Length delivery outside off, Craig gets on top of the bounce and drives it back past the non-striker, mid-off had no chance of stopping that

44.1 - Siddle to Craig, FOUR, glorious drive! Pitched up outside off, Craig presses forward and caresses the drive to the right of mid-off, who gives chase but the timing was very sweet, runs away to the fence. 150 up for the Black Caps

39.3 - Lyon to Corey Anderson, FOUR, Anderson comes down the track to get to the pitch of this tossed up delivery and he lofts it over the man at mid-on, didn't get it off the middle but it had enough on it to reach the fence

38.4 - Bird to Corey Anderson, FOUR, nicely done by Anderson. Half-volley on the pads and Anderson doesn't miss out. Comes across and clips it wide of the man at mid-on, crashes into the fence in a jiffy

37.5 - Mitchell Marsh to Craig, FOUR, on the pads this time and Marsh pays the price. Craig works it away fine and the fielder at fine leg was very square, runs away to the fence in a jiffy

36.3 - Bird to Corey Anderson, FOUR, shortish delivery angling away outside off, Anderson gets on top of the bounce, opens the face of the bat at the last moment and steers it past backward point, who gives chase but the ball beats him to the fence

31.3 - Siddle to Craig, FOUR, angling away just outside off, Craig goes hard on the drive, the ball takes the outside edge and rolls away in the gap between backward point and gully, Lyon from backward point gives chase but he was in contact with the rope when he flicked the ball back in. The third umpire took a look at the replays and asks his onfield colleague to signal a boundary

28.4 - Hazlewood to Doug Bracewell, FOUR, short, wide and four, width on offer from Hazlewood, Bracewell gets on top of the bounce and cuts it over point for a boundary

27.1 - Siddle to Corey Anderson, FOUR, nicely done by Anderson, lweans into a length delivery and pushes it back past the non-striker, rolls away to the fence in a hurry

26.2 - Hazlewood to Watling, FOUR, lovely shot, full and wide outside off from Hazlewood, Watling bends down low and caresses it through extra cover for a boundary

18.3 - Bird to Corey Anderson, FOUR, lovely shot, overpitched and just outside off, Anderson leans forward, presents the full face of the bat and punches it back past the non-striker, doesn't need to run for those

16.3 - Bird to Watling, FOUR, cracking shot, width on offer from Bird, Watling leans into the drive and plays it on the up, finds the gap through cover-point and rolls away into the fence

14.4 - Hazlewood to Corey Anderson, FOUR, nicely played by Anderson, on a length and around off, Anderson uses his bottom hand to good effect and whips it wide of mid-on, off the mark with a boundary

13.0 - Hazlewood to Corey Anderson, byes, FOUR, poor ball from Hazlewood, banged in short and well down the leg-side. Nevill leaps and can get only a hand onto it, tips it over the bar and into the fence for four byes

7.1 - Siddle to Williamson, FOUR, floaty half-volley from Siddle, gentle start to his spell, Williamson gets forward, presents the full face of the bat and drives it back past the non-striker, rolls away to the fence

5.5 - Bird to Williamson, FOUR, cracking shot, overpitched and just outside off, Williamson gets forward, presents a straight bat and languidly drives it back past the bowler, no need to run for those

5.4 - Bird to Williamson, FOUR, Bird hasn't got into his rhythm as yet, slightly overpitched and on the leg-stump line, Williamson gets forward, presents the full face of the bat and laces it to the right of mid-on for a boundary

4.3 - Hazlewood to Williamson, FOUR, cracking shot, a long half-volley from Hazlewood, Williamson leans forward, gets his head on top of the ball and caresses it through extra cover, off the mark with a boundary

3.5 - Bird to Guptill, FOUR, too straight from Bird, ends up drifting onto Guptill's pads, flicked away fine past the keeper. Hazlewood gets across, puts in the dive but ccan't stop the ball from hitting the ropes

2.0 - Bird to Guptill, FOUR, lovely looking clip from Guptill, tad too full from Bird, ends up drifting onto Guptill's pads, he presents a straight bat and drives it past mid-on, rolls away to the fence in a hurry

1.3 - Bird to Guptill, FOUR, lovely shot, fraction too short from Bird, Guptill swivels across, rolls his wrists and pulls it in front of square on the on-side, earns his first boundary

0.5 - Hazlewood to Latham, FOUR, too full and too straight from Hazlewood, ends up as a half-volley on Latham's pads, whipped away in front of square on the on-side, beats mid-wicket and rolls away to the fence

47.5 - Lyon to Boult, SIX, these are important runs for New Zealand! Once again Boult dances down the track and swings across the line, this time he gets it much squarer as he smacks it over the deep mid-wicket fence for a maximum

47.3 - Lyon to Boult, SIX, this gets the crowd going! Boult once again jumps out of the crease, gets to the pitch of the ball and slogs it through the line, hits it right off the middle and it sails over the wide long-on fence

43.5 - Lyon to Boult, SIX, this time Boult dances down the track and goes for the full-blooded lofted drive. It was right in the slot and Boult hammers it straight back over the bowler's head for the first maximum of the match

48.0 - Lyon to Boult, out Caught by Khawaja!! Finally, the 46-run stand comes to an end. Boult, the final one to depart. In order to try and hit another six, Boult jumps out of the crease and lofts it straight down the ground, didn't get it off the middle and Khawaja from long-on moves to his left and takes the catch. The momentum was taking him over the rope as he took the catch right on the edge, he throws the ball up in the air before he cross the rope, balances himself quickly and jumps inside the rope to take it on the second attempt. He was very calm under pressure and that was the key in completing the catch. This wicket also means that tea will be taken early. Boult c Khawaja b Lyon 24(22) [6s-3]

41.1 - Lyon to Southee, out Caught by Hazlewood!! Tim Southee's resistance doesn't last long, just three deliveries. Floated up invitingly wide outside off, Southee goes hard on the drive (as he always does), he wanted to clear the man at mid-off but ends up slicing it in the air off a thick outside edge and backward point takes the easiest of catches. A very soft dismissal for the Kiwi pacer. Southee c Hazlewood b Lyon 0(3)

39.4 - Lyon to Corey Anderson, out Caught by Khawaja!! Ohh no! What have you done, Mr. Anderson? His fight is over now. Lyon gives this one more air and Anderson just goes after it with a half-hearted lofted-drive. Didn't give his all and ended up spooning a simple catch to Khawaja at mid-off, who won't drop those. Tame dismissal for Anderson. Corey Anderson c Khawaja b Lyon 38(87) [4s-6]

29.3 - Siddle to Doug Bracewell, out Caught by Voges!! Another one bites the dust. The umpire checks for Siddle's front foot and he is fine on that count. Nothing but a shortish delivery outside off, Bracewell pokes at it away from his body, the ball flies towards first slip off the outside edge and Voges takes a well-judged catch after diving across to his left. Doug Bracewell c Voges b Siddle 5(11) [4s-1]

26.3 - Hazlewood to Watling, out Caught by Nevill!! That's a cracker from Hazlewood! He kept it full and in that corridor outside off, Watling was shuffling across on the defensive push, is done in by the extra bounce, the ball takes the outside edge and nestles safely in the gloves of Nevill. The partnership has been broken, Australia have strick immediately after lunch. Watling was looking solid, but there was nothing much he could have done there, McGrathseque bowling from Hazlewood. Watling c Nevill b Hazlewood 17(51) [4s-2]

11.1 - Siddle to Henry Nicholls, out Caught by Nevill!! That's a sitter for Nevill and New Zealand have lost half their side. Poor shot from Nicholls and his debut innings is a short one. On a good length and a hint of shape away from outside off, might have been some extra bounce as well. Nicholls didn't need to play at that, instead, he has a spar and gets a regulation edge. Simple catch for Nevill and Siddle gets his second wicket. Henry Nicholls c Nevill b Siddle 8(13)

8.4 - Hazlewood to Brendon McCullum, out Caught by Warner!! McCullum gets a duck in his 100th Test and New Zealand are in big trouble. Lovely channel from Hazlewood, just short of a good length and shaping back into the right-hander, McCullum was pressing across as he looked to nudge it towards the on-side, gets a thick inside edge that lobs towards third slip - off his pads. Warner reacts quickly, moves forward, dives and holds on. Umpire Illingworth's finger went up straightaway and McCullum didn't bother to even think about a review. Brendon McCullum c Warner b Hazlewood 0(7)

7.2 - Siddle to Williamson, out Caught by Nevill!! That's a ripper from Nevill and New Zealand have lost a huge wicket. Lovely bowling from Siddle, just short of a full length and a hint of nip back into the right-hander, drew Williamson into the drive. He went with hard hands, doesn't cover for the movement, gets a thick inside edge on the drive. Nevill dives full length to his left, goes one-handed and snaffles a beauty, with his left gloves. The Australians are cock-a-hoop, Williamson was batting like a dream, but it's just a short lived cameo. Williamson c Nevill b Siddle 16(18) [4s-4]

6.2 - Hazlewood to Guptill, out Caught by Smith!! Edged and caught! That's the perfect line and length from Hazlewood, on a good length and in that channel around off, Guptill was prodding forward with a perfectly straight bat, the ball nipped away a tad at the last moment, caught the outside edge and flew towards second slip. Smith doesn't drop those - takes it in front of his head, New Zealand have lost both openers now. Guptill c Smith b Hazlewood 18(18) [4s-3]

2.2 - Hazlewood to Latham, out Caught by Nevill!! Early strike by Hazlewood, Smith's decision to bowl first gets an early backing. This was a short of a good length delivery that shaped away from the left-hander, Latham was looking to play the drive, doesn't cover for the movement, there's a tiny edge on that, Nevill moves to his left and collects the ball. The appeal was spontaneous, but umpire Illingworth wasn't convinced. The review is made and we get the right call in the end. Latham c Nevill b Hazlewood 6(6) [4s-1]

22.5 - Bird to Watling, no run, loud appeal for LBW, on a good length and coming back with the angle, Watling got his bat and pad together as he looked to defend, the ball brushed the front pad first and then hit the bat as Watling prodded forward in defence, the impact was marginally outside off and would have been hitting the top of off-stump

22.4 - Bird to Watling, no run, loose from Watling, short of a length and seaming back towards the right-hander, he looks to cut, plays with an angled bat and gets an inside edge

151.1 - Corey Anderson to Voges, FOUR, nicely done! Waited for the length ball and opened the bat face to glide it fine towards third man

150.2 - Doug Bracewell to Voges, FOUR, yorker gone horribly wrong, dishes out a full toss at the hip which Voges bludgeons to deep square for a one-bounce four

143.5 - Craig to Voges, FOUR, take a bow Adam Voges! His second double hundred in Test match cricket and what an incredible summer he's having! Gets there with a pull over a leaping short mid-wicket. It was a full toss and Voges knew it was four the moment he hit it, while running to the other end he pumps his fist and knocks the glove with Lyon. Off comes the helmet and the dressing room rise on their feet to applaud this memorable moment. A mammoth effort from the Western Australian! His average will only get better from now. 100 plus and counting....

139.3 - Boult to Voges, FOUR, short and sat up at a comfortable height for Voges who rocks back and murders the pull through mid-wicket, Craig came sprinting in and puts in a sprawling dive, but to no avail

139.0 - Doug Bracewell to Hazlewood, FOUR, and to rub salt on the injury, an outside edge flies between slip cordon and gully! Good length in the corridor of uncertainty, Hazlewood hung his bat and the edge raced away. Also brings up Australia's 500

138.5 - Doug Bracewell to Hazlewood, FOUR, full and wide, Hazlewood bent his back knee and timed the pants off a drive through cover, don't bother running Josh! Off the mark with a four

136.5 - Doug Bracewell to Siddle, FOUR, ah! Shot. Shot of the morning! Full and right in the slot, Siddle gets across and drives straight beating a desperate dive from mid-off

135.4 - Boult to Siddle, FOUR, neatly done! Leant forward and pushed in the gap through cover, pinged off the middle and way she goes into the fence

133.0 - Southee to Siddle, FOUR, short and wide, Siddle rocks back to cut this behind backward point

126.2 - Corey Anderson to Siddle, FOUR, back of a length and well outside off, Siddle stands tall, plays with an open face and guides it behind square on the off-side, gets it to the left of gully and rolls away to the fence

124.0 - Williamson to Siddle, FOUR, that's neatly done by Siddle, went down low, rolled his wrists around this flatter delivery and swept it behind square on the on-side. The fielder at square leg chases, but he can't haul the ball back in, a boundary for Siddle

122.0 - Corey Anderson to Voges, FOUR, full and wide from Anderson, Voges throws the kitchen sink, gets a thick edge that flies through the gap between slip and gully, rolls away to the fence for a boundary

120.5 - Southee to Siddle, FOUR, that's sublime timing from Siddle, width on offer from Southee, Siddle merely pushes at that, the ball raced away in the gap past cover-point, no need to run for those

120.0 - Craig to Voges, FOUR, fraction too short and well outside off, Voges makes room and chops it square on the off-side, two men give chase, but the ball wins the race

117.2 - Craig to Siddle, FOUR, skips out of his crease through a beautiful shimmy and lofts it straight down the ground. Not off the middle but good enough for it to run through

114.1 - Boult to Voges, FOUR, compensates for that last over's hideous cut shot. Short but not that wide, Voges arches his back to create room and cuts it wide of backward point

113.3 - Corey Anderson to Voges, FOUR, cross-seamer and Voges meets it on the up and creams it through a drive past mid-off

111.0 - Boult to Voges, FOUR, looks like this is the plan now. Fired in short and aiming for the helmet badge, Voges takes his eyes off and goes with the hook. Manages a top-edge that runs through fine leg

110.3 - Boult to Voges, FOUR, and this goes through. Wasn't even wide, just late-cut it and bounced it over gully to get that boundary

108.1 - Doug Bracewell to Voges, FOUR, short and mellowed with width, Voges arches his back and tailors it between backward point and cover-point with a thrashy cut

106.1 - Doug Bracewell to Voges, FOUR, BMac leapt as high as he could but just over him at first slip! Width on this length ball, Voges flashes at it and the top-edge evades McCullum's high jump to run to the fences behind

103.5 - Craig to Voges, FOUR, and this one vrooms away. Voges got forward and got the ball through extra cover's drive to earn a boundary. Should have been stopped but the ball hit some barren spots and only gained pace

100.5 - Southee to Nevill, FOUR, okay. Here's why you watch Test cricket. These mini-battles, I tell you. Short ball had hit him on his chest and hence he had ducked the follow-up short ball. Southee dishes out a short serving for the third time and Nevill swivels to pull the pants off that one. Raced through square leg

100.0 - Craig to Voges, FOUR, here's the ton for Voges! 5th Test ton of his short career so far. Luck and all but he's been there to score all these runs. And what a way to get there. A full toss knee-high and Voges shimmies out to whip it through mid-wicket

99.4 - Craig to Voges, FOUR, cannot do this. A ball this short to a man in his 90s is pie. Goes deep and pulls it through mid-wicket

94.4 - Southee to Voges, FOUR, was it the previous ball which propelled this shot? For Voges flashed hard at this full delivery and got it over the fielder at the gully, it races into the third man fence

92.2 - Southee to Nevill, FOUR, short and wide and Nevill cuts it over the fielder at gully, the ball races away to the third man fence

91.2 - Doug Bracewell to Voges, FOUR, that is a good drive from Voges, gets a little stride forward and thuds the drive into the pitch, the ball races away off the surface and finds the gap between mid-off and extra cover

86.1 - Boult to Voges, FOUR, full and swinging in from middle, Voges goes across and flicks it to the fine leg fence

85.0 - Boult to Nevill, FOUR, outside edge on this outswinger from Boult, but it rolls all along the carpet and crashes into the third man fence

81.3 - Southee to Voges, FOUR, this time could not get any swing and the ball kept coming in with the angled, Voges moves across and flicks it to the fine leg fence

80.1 - Boult to Khawaja, FOUR, Khawaja welcomes Boult with a flashy drive, full and outside off, Khawaja gets a stride forward and creams the drive through the covers

78.5 - Corey Anderson to Khawaja, FOUR, Anderson slips this one on the pads of Khawaja, he moves across and clips it fine, picks up another boundary

78.0 - Craig to Voges, FOUR, Voges goes deep in the crease and cuts this skidder outside off through the point region, no chance for the fielder running across from the deep. The partnership between Voges and Khawaja is now 150

77.0 - Corey Anderson to Khawaja, FOUR, this time he beats the diving fielder at point, and will get a four for it. Short delivery and Khawaja cut this off the back foot

76.0 - Craig to Voges, FOUR, the trigger movement from Voges was on the front foot, the bowler drpped it short and Voges cut it from there to beat the fielder at cover-point, the ball races away to the fence

74.5 - Corey Anderson to Voges, FOUR, very full and well outside off, Voges reaches out for the drive and squeezes it through the cover region, long chase for the fielder from extra cover but the ball wins the race

73.5 - Craig to Khawaja, FOUR, good use of the feet from Khawaja this time, made this flighted delivery into a full toss and then just wristed it over mid-wicket for an easy four

72.4 - Corey Anderson to Voges, FOUR, short delivery and Voges swivels across the line, whips it easily and the ball races away to the fine leg fence in a jiffy

72.3 - Corey Anderson to Voges, FOUR, outside edge and that runs away to the third man fence, fuller length delivery and Voges poked at it, gets it off the outer edge and the ball sneaks past the fielder at slip and gully. Fifty for Voges

70.3 - Corey Anderson to Voges, FOUR, straying on the pads of Voges, he moves across and clips it fine on the on-side, away from the fielder to pick up the first boundary after lunch

68.2 - Southee to Voges, FOUR, overpitched and on the stumps, that's easy pickings for Voges, he shuffles across and whips it in front of square on the on-side, bisects the two men in the ring and rolls away to the fence in a hurry

63.3 - Craig to Khawaja, FOUR, Craig isn't learning here, another short and wide delivery outside off, Khawaja back saway, makes more room and cuts it square past point for back-to-back boundaries

63.2 - Craig to Khawaja, FOUR, poor ball from Craig, dropped it short and well outside off, Khawaja backs away and cracks it square on the off-side, beats the man at backward point and rolls away to the fence

59.4 - Craig to Khawaja, FOUR, 4th Test hundred for Khawaja, he pumps his fists, removes the helmet, kisses the badge and gets a warm hug from his partner. The Australian dressing room are thrilled to bits as well, coming to the ball, it was dragged short and down the leg-side, Khawaja went back and pulled it behind square on the on-side for a boundary

58.2 - Southee to Voges, FOUR, width on offer from Southee, Voges chops it hard and behind square on the off-side, he didn't get hold of the shot, but the finds the gap behind square, the ball slowly trickles away to the ropes

56.3 - Doug Bracewell to Khawaja, FOUR, Khawaja is back into his elements, this is a free-flowing cover-drive, moves him within one shot of yet another hundred.

41.0 - Southee to Khawaja, FOUR, to square third man

Khawaja comes down the track, doesn't get to the pitch of the ball as he goes hard on the drive, the ball takes the inside edge and goes past the leg stump.

Fuller length delivery that swings away late, Smith goes chasing after it as he looks to drive, the ball flies to the right of second slip, Craig was a little late to react, goes two-handed for it but can't hold on and it runs away to the fence.

154.2 - Craig to Voges, out Caught&Bowled!! Finally! Ladies and gentlemen - Adam Charles Voges has been dismissed. That also marks an end to a wonderful, wonderful knock from the Western Australian. He walks off to a thunderous applause and all the New Zealand fielders rush to congratulate him. It's been a terrific knock - An innings of patience and panache. Coming to the dismissal: Voges made his intentions clear a tad too early - Comes down the track and expectedly Craig drags it short.

147.5 - Corey Anderson to Lyon, out Caught&Bowled!! "Whoa! That's an absolute ripper, would've been in a circus" lauds Allan Border on air. That was a stunner from Corey Anderson. He made that look so easy - Just ike how you pluck an orange from the basket. He fired a full delivery on middle and leg, Lyon drives tamely to the left of him. Corey Anderson didn't even complete his delivery stride, realises the ball was going past and he dives forward and plucks a dipping, dying, ball inches above the turf. YOU TUBE is waiting Corey.... Lyon c and b Corey Anderson 3(24)

140.4 - Doug Bracewell to Hazlewood, out Caught by Southee!! Driven straight to Southee who has an exceptional pair of hands. Full and luring Hazlewood into the drive, he goes through with the stroke and got it right of the middle. Short cover was placed for the trap and Southee reverse-cups it above his head. Sharp reflexes there! Hazlewood c Southee b Doug Bracewell 8(10) [4s-2]

138.1 - Doug Bracewell to Siddle, out Caught by Corey Anderson!! Finally Doug Bracewell gets a wicket and most importantly they get a breakthrough. Siddle trudges back one short of what would've been a well-earned half-century. Lapse in concentration? Maybe. He was timing the ball well and might have got carried away with the play. Back of a length delivery jagged in on middle and off, Siddle looks to clear mid-off with a drive. The ball holds up and catches the toe-end, a dolly to Anderson at mid-on. Siddle c Corey Anderson b Doug Bracewell 49(81) [4s-7 6s-1]

111.4 - Corey Anderson to Nevill, out Caught by Watling!! Nevill perishes trying to be cute. Back of a length and angled across, Nevill attempts the deft late glide to third man, ball bounces a touch higher with Corey Anderson bending his back and the top-edge settles itself in a shuffling Watling's gloves. Nevill c Watling b Corey Anderson 32(94) [4s-3]

84.3 - Boult to Mitchell Marsh, out Caught&Bowled!! New Zealand wasted a review but that is not going to hurt them more as Boult has got the better of Marsh, short of a good length delivery and Marsh punches it in the air towards the right of the bowler, who extended his right arm and snaffled a good catch on his followthrough. Marsh goes for a duck. Mitchell Marsh c and b Boult 0(2)

84.1 - Boult to Khawaja, out Lbw!! That has been given out and it is the big fish. Khawaja does not review this lbw decision. He looked plumb to the naked eye and reviewing it would have only wasted the review. Coming to the dismissal, it was a length delivery that came in with the angle to the left-hander, Khawaja wanted to turn it into the on-side off the back foot, the ball swung in late and hit him on the back leg, it was hitting him right in front, the bowler appealed and keeper joined, making the umpire to raise his finger in a flash. A good innings from Khawaja comes to an end. New Zealand will be delighted to see his back. Khawaja lbw b Boult 140(216) [4s-25]

34.3 - Craig to Smith, out Caught&Bowled!! Craig gets the wicket he deserves. He has been really good today and now he has the the wicket of the Australian skipper. Floated up around off, Smith jumps out of the crease and goes hard on the drive, the bat face closes as he makes contact with the ball and he ends up hitting it uppishly, the bowler bends low and takes a good catch inches above the ground. Smith wasn't sure whether it was out, but replays showed that it was not a bump ball, plus the catch was also clean. Smith c and b Craig 71(112) [4s-10 6s-1]

2.3 - Southee to Warner, out Caught by Watling!! Southee picks his second and the Aussies find themselves in trouble early on. Short and slightly wide outside off, Warner will never leave it alone, he throws the kitchen sink at it as he slashes hard without any feet movement, but he can only manage an edge and Watling does the rest. Both the Aussie openers are back in the hut now. Warner c Watling b Southee 5(7)

0.4 - Southee to Burns, out Caught by Watling!! Brilliant start for the Kiwis and credit to Brendon McCullum for trusting his wicket-keeper there. A strangle down the leg-side. Short of length delivery that slips down leg, Burns tries to tickle it fine, can only manage some glove. There was a bit of extra bounce and it brushed the glove on its way to the keeper. Very faint but enough for the third umpire to rule it out after the onfield appeal had been denied by umpire Kettleborough. Watling was confident and so were the others around the bat, McCullum reviewed without giving it a second thought and New Zealand have the first wicket. Burns c Watling b Southee 0(4)

114.2 - Boult to Voges, 1 run, here's the 150-run milestone for Voges! Fullish outside off, Voges squeezed it with an open bat and ran through

84.2 - Boult to Mitchell Marsh, no run, Boult bowls it full but the ball just pitched outside leg and saved Marsh on this occasion. New Zealand waste a review as well. Review part: Another big shout for the lbw and skipper McCullum has decided to review it. It is a legal delivery. But it has pitched outside leg, going down further there is an inside edge as well, wasted review there. Maybe got too excited and reviewed it.

66.1 - Southee to Voges, 1 run, leading edge and safe, a rare bad shot by the Australian batsmen today, short of a length and straightening on off, Voges was looking to work it towards the on-side, closed the face of the bat and gets a leading edge - wide of point, bringsup the 100-run stand with a single

63.1 - Craig to Khawaja, no run, close, close call for Khawaja, this was tossed up invitingly on middle, Khawaja went down on his knees as he looked to sweep, the ball was too full and he's struck low on the back pad. The impact was in front of middle and the ball would only have clipped the leg-stump. Umpire Illingworth said NO and it stays with his call

35.0 - Craig to Khawaja, 1 run, full toss from Craig and Khawaja finally gets to his fifty, he drove this wide of mid-off to get to the milestone

104.2 - Mitchell Marsh to Boult, FOUR, fun. Short ball on the top of stumps, Boult stands tall and forehands it down the ground

104.0 - Lyon to Craig, FOUR, short, wide and four! Runs are flowing, Craig has enough time to place the cut through a diving cover

103.0 - Mitchell Marsh to Craig, FOUR, greedy fuller length delivery, Craig leans in and creams the drive through extra cover. Full swings of the bat and great placement through the off-side ring

99.3 - Lyon to Southee, FOUR, lovely shot! Rocks back and cuts the ball through cover

97.3 - Lyon to Southee, FOUR, fabulous shot! Shimmies down and eats up all the flight on this with a drive over cover

96.4 - Hazlewood to Craig, FOUR, just wide of the second slip! Back of a length delivery, Craig jabs at it and the outside edge flies past a rightward diving slip who had his right hand stuck out but couldn't reach it

94.2 - Hazlewood to Southee, FOUR, pulled more convincingly this time. Swivels and pulls it to long-on

94.1 - Hazlewood to Southee, FOUR, short ball, Southee goes for the pull. Is late, ekes out a top-edge that balloons over Nevill's head

93.2 - Bird to Southee, FOUR, sprays one on the pads, Southee picks it up with a flick of his wrists and clips it through mid-wicket

91.3 - Bird to Craig, FOUR, that's a top-drawer shot. Fullish ball, Craig takes it on the up and times the drive down the ground. Southee widens his legs and lets the ball scoot through

86.3 - Hazlewood to Doug Bracewell, FOUR, in the air and just past mid-off. Sees this full delivery dipping and pulls out a full-blooded drive, that came right of the middle wonders Sir AB on air

84.1 - Bird to Doug Bracewell, FOUR, ah, shot! "That's the shot of the morning" declares Alan Border after Bracewell pinged one off the meat, full and in the slot, he times the pants of a drive which scorches past the bowler

82.5 - Bird to Craig, FOUR, welcome to the crease Mark Craig! Straightaway offered a freebie and he ensures it doesn't go scot-free. Down leg and Craig helps it with a glance, beating Nevill's air-borne dive

69.0 - Mitchell Marsh to Henry Nicholls, FOUR, ah, cute! Pokes at this ball with some width, the inside edge is found and it bounces over the stumps en route to the fine leg fence

65.2 - Hazlewood to Henry Nicholls, FOUR, imperious. Banged in after the fullathon, Nicholls swivels and pulls it uppishly over mid-wicket

62.2 - Mitchell Marsh to Brendon McCullum, FOUR, just wide of gully! Just. Kept his boot soled glued to point and reached out to play this length ball outside off. Wasn't quite behind and the outside edge flies to the third man fence

54.4 - Hazlewood to Henry Nicholls, FOUR, throws his bat at this. Hazlewood for one pitches it up and Nicholls open-bats the drive to place it well to the right of point

47.3 - Lyon to Henry Nicholls, FOUR, drifted into the leg-side, Nicholls bends his front leg to kneel and brooms it away through backward square leg

46.0 - Lyon to Henry Nicholls, FOUR, width on offer and Nicholls flashes it square of the wicket, past point and it vrooms away

43.2 - Lyon to Henry Nicholls, FOUR, veering into Nicholls who gets low and sweeps it away through square leg

40.3 - Hazlewood to Henry Nicholls, FOUR, that will be 80% timing and 20% placement. Shapes back in to make the ball straight, Nicholls bends forward and clips it wide of mid-on for it to run away

26.4 - Hazlewood to Williamson, FOUR, too short and too wide, ball doesn't rise as much as Williamson expected, but playing late was the key there. Went for the late-cut and placed it past a diving backward point, raced away!

25.0 - Bird to Williamson, FOUR, full at the toes and Williamson uses his rubber wrists to perfection, threads the gap between mid-on and mid-wicket

24.2 - Bird to Williamson, FOUR, short and plenty of width on offer, Williamson hops and cuts square of the wicket, that's right from the coaching manual

19.0 - Mitchell Marsh to Guptill, FOUR, full and in the driving zone for Guptill. He goes deep inside the crease, bends his back knee and clobbers the drive through cover, sublime timing!

15.0 - Mitchell Marsh to Guptill, FOUR, up and over point! Short and ample width on offer, Guptill flays his hands on the cut, no one in the deep and it's an easy boundary

14.3 - Mitchell Marsh to Latham, FOUR, widish full delivery outside off, Latham goes chasing and the outside edge dies down well wide of second slip. Raced between first and second slip as Smith fails to slide

13.0 - Mitchell Marsh to Latham, FOUR, on middle and leg-stump, Latham raises the 50-run stand with an effortless flick through mid-wicket, Lyon swoops and gives it everything he possibly can, the ball though finds its way to the fence

7.4 - Siddle to Guptill, FOUR, Guptill is seeing Siddle like a bowling machine at the moment. Repeats the same shot and gets his reward

7.3 - Siddle to Guptill, FOUR, an action replay of the previous delivery, just that it went a wee wide of deep mid-wicket

7.2 - Siddle to Guptill, FOUR, ah, shot! Just picked it up and placed it over mid-wicket. Full on the pads, Guptill whips and gets his first four

4.0 - Bird to Guptill, FOUR, ho, ho! Martin Guptill, this ain't ODI cricket where you get a free-hit for a no ball. He sees length and wallops with a slog over mid-on, raced away

2.5 - Hazlewood to Latham, FOUR, this time he takes on the short ball! Fetches the pull from outside off and even though he was hurried into the stroke, he managed to place it in the unmanned fine leg region

102.0 - Lyon to Boult, SIX, and he pulls off this one. Gets low, reaches out to this flighted delivery outside off and swipes it well over long-on. And someone finally catches it in the crowd. With that Boult goes past Courtney Walsh for most number sixes by a number 11 batsman in Test match cricket

99.4 - Lyon to Southee, SIX, and another one! This is a blockbuster over. In the swinging arc, Southee flat-bats it down the ground. Sails over

99.2 - Lyon to Southee, SIX, thumped! Comes down the track, takes hold of this quicker delivery and hammers it over long-on. Way into the crowds

97.5 - Lyon to Southee, SIX, this is into the grassbanks. Dances down the track, gets under the ball and tonks it over long-on. Lauched into the orbit

104.3 - Mitchell Marsh to Boult, out Bowled!! Who would have thought? Who? Won the toss on a green mamba, turned the tables on the hosts and have now gotten a win so big that Kiwis go down by an innings. Win by an innings and 52 runs to be precise. Yorker on the base of off, a greedy Boult shuffled too far across trying to flick fine, missed it altogether and the stumps stand shattered. Australia go 1-0 up to ensure they don't lose this series. Boult b Mitchell Marsh 12(16) [4s-1 6s-1]

99.5 - Lyon to Southee, out Caught by Khawaja!! And after 16 runs in the last 3 balls, he perishes. Lyon cleverly bowled it outside off, Southee threw his bat at it trying to heave it. Ends up dragging it uppishly to Khawaja at long-on. Southee c Khawaja b Lyon 48(23) [4s-5 6s-3]

90.5 - Hazlewood to Doug Bracewell, out Lbw!! Loud appeal. Synchronized appeal. And Bracewell isn't happy with the decision and sends it upstairs. No inside edge according to HotSpot and Snicko. Clipping the top of middle according to HawkEye. Onfield decision stays and Bracewell has to walk back! Good length ball within the stump-to-stump mat, swung in and Bracewell was late on the flick shot, is rapped on the pads to perish. Australia are two wickets away from a resounding win. Doug Bracewell lbw b Hazlewood 14(45) [4s-2]

82.4 - Bird to Henry Nicholls, out Bowled!! Woof! Nicholls departs and so do New Zealand's hopes. Bird claims his first wicket of the Test match. Nothing great about the delivery but Birdy will take it any day. A half-volley on middle stump and Nicholls was caught stuck inside the crease. Doesn't move his feet by much and was a fraction late on the whippy flick. The ball crashes into the front pad and finds its way to kiss the off-peg. Nicholls might have misjudged the line a wee bit there. Henry Nicholls b Bird 59(134) [4s-7]

77.2 - Lyon to Watling, out Bowled!! CLINGGGGGGGG go the bails and Lyon is mobbed by his team-mates. What a sight! A classic offspinner that can get you wickets on any track. Pitched just outside off and zoomed in like a snake to wake the bails up. Watling perhaps moved too far across the stumps, he left that alone after leaning forward but the ball sneaked in sharply to defeat him. Watling b Lyon 10(33)

68.2 - Mitchell Marsh to Corey Anderson, out Lbw!! This was the ball that Mitchell Marsh had been planning all night yesterday. And then this morning and then this spell. Post last ball, Smith asked Marsh to switch the angle. He obliged from over the wicket, pitches it on leg-stump and gets it to straighten. Anderson was expecting it to train away with the angle, tries to fetch it with a whip and misses. Given out immediately, and on review, the decision was upheld. That was taking down the throat of the leg stick. Corey Anderson lbw b Mitchell Marsh 0(22)

62.3 - Mitchell Marsh to Brendon McCullum, out Lbw!! And he makes this the last ball of the day. Perishes. McCullum just churns out events. He is an event mill. Went against him here but that will be his legacy. "The eventwallah". Raises his bat to the crowd who get their bums off the seats and shower in heartfelt claps. Mitchell Marsh had built his pace in the last over. Hurried one onto the pads this time, McCullum was late to tuck it away and was trapped in front. Given out by the umpire belatedly and then was referred upstairs only to see three reds. Hitting the top of leg-stump that. And folks, you have seen the last of Brendon McCullum at the Basin Reserve. Brendon McCullum lbw b Mitchell Marsh 10(31) [4s-1]

51.2 - Lyon to Latham, out Caught by Khawaja!! Khawaja can bat like a Superman and he can field like one too. Runs across from mid-off and latches onto this one at say around extra cover. Lyon flights it slow, gets it to turn a bit and Latham-on-skates, who was looking to loft it over mid-on, skewed it off the leading edge high for Khawaja to gobble it up. Latham c Khawaja b Lyon 63(164) [4s-3]

38.1 - Hazlewood to Williamson, out Caught by Nevill!! Big, big wicket this. It can be argued that Williamson could have played it better but Hazlewood has gnawed at that off-stump channel for long. After getting the Kookaburra to curl back in, he gets one to pitch and scissor away from the batsman. Williamson, with his feet in a honey pot, pokes at it and helps with the tiniest of edges behind. Williamson c Nevill b Hazlewood 22(44) [4s-3]

21.2 - Lyon to Guptill, out Caught by Mitchell Marsh!! That's a fantastic catch from Mitch Marsh. Tossed up on middle, Guptill has no respect for Nathan Lyon. He looks to smash him straight down the ground - No foot movement, the ball skews off the toe end and swirls high in the air. Marsh from cover runs back in circles, it was in the air for a long, long time. Marsh kept his eyes on the ball and grabbed it on the move - running backwards. Guptill c Mitchell Marsh b Lyon 45(55) [4s-7]

17.0 - Mitchell Marsh to Latham, 1 run, nicked and dropped! Marsh draws Latham into a drive by keeping it full and wide, he goes chasing and the outside edge is shelled by a diving Nevill. He dived full length to his left, got one glove but failed to close in.... Marsh lets out a huge grunt of frustration

88.2 - Hazlewood to Doug Bracewell, no run, this good length ball swung in and hit Bracewell in front of middle, a huge appeal from the slip cordon and this time Smithy wants to have a look. REVIEW PART: Australia review, for lbw against Bracewell: Front foot is fine, did he get an inside edge? Or did it clip the pad first? Third umpire asks for a front on vision. Can we have RTS on this" yelps the Tv ump. Is that bat hitting the pad? To the naked eye it looked like the ball slammed straight into the pad and it's the bottom of the bat that hits the shin and creates confusion in the DRS picture. Anyway the TV ump. sees an inside edge and conveys the same to umpire Richard Kettleborough who sticks with his initial verdict

73.3 - Lyon to Henry Nicholls, 5 runs, there's the fifty on debut! Cut it to cover and ran through. A misdirected throw at the bowler's end, no one to back up and it runs through

33.1 - Mitchell Marsh to Latham, 3 runs, Latham does take this Mitchell Marsh softener on with a cramped pull shot. Not in control and plays it uppishly to deep square leg for 3 runs. Gets a fifty and the Wellington crowd wakes up to applaud
