The first test match was won by Auatralia.
Australia after winning the 5 ODI series 3-1 are on a high note. Previously Australia at home white washed Pakistan in formats of the game including the 3 tests.
Australia have been so dominant against New Zealand in test matches that New Zealand have not beaten them in a test match since 1993.
Toss: Ponting won the toss and Australia batted first and scored 231 runs in their first innings.
|Australia 1st innings||R||M||B||4s||6s||SR|
|SR Watson||c Arnel b Southee||12||33||25||3||0||48.00|
|7.4 the miscued pull! Sudden rush of blood there, Southee pitched it on a good length outside off and Watson tried to pull it over midwicket, hit the bottom of the bat and the ball looped towards Arnel at mid-on who fell forward to take the catch 25/1|
|SM Katich||c Watling b Vettori||88||236||171||11||0||51.46|
|56.4 Katich falls just before tea! He shuffle across his stumps yet again and tries to clip it to the on side, but the ball goes straight off the bat and goes to Watling at forward short leg, no doubts about that at all 180/5|
|RT Ponting*||run out (Vettori)||22||62||47||4||0||46.80|
|23.3 from Patel, direct hit! Dan sets a fine example, Ponting pushes a full delivery down to mid-off but he hits it to Vettori’s left, picks it up and fires a flat throw at the stumps at the bowler’s end, they all know they’ve got him and the third umpire takes a look 63/2|
|MEK Hussey||c †McCullum b Southee||22||65||48||5||0||45.83|
|39.2 we saw it coming! Southee had beaten Hussey just a short while back outside the off stump, this time he pitches it up outside off and draws Hussey to drive forward, takes the edge which was loud and clear, Rauf confirms it 129/3|
|MJ Clarke||c Southee b Patel||28||50||33||4||0||84.84|
|49.3 yet another Australian gives his wicket away! Flighted on the off stump, Clarke chips down the track but doesn’t loft with any conviction at all, Southee’s there at long-on and he runs forward and takes it comfortably, Clarke fell for the trap 172/4|
|MJ North||lbw b Southee||9||66||47||1||0||19.14|
|67.1 North is referring this, the ball lands on middle and goes through with the line, North plays all around it and is hit flush on the pad bang in front of middle, looked obvious to us and Asad Rauf, North challenges it but in the end it’s a referral used up by Australia 200/8|
|BJ Haddin†||c & b Southee||12||32||31||2||0||38.70|
|65.6 another soft dismissal and New Zealand are taking them all, Haddin shapes to punch it through the off side but checks his shot and ends up tamely tapping it back to the bowler, that fielder at silly mid-off may have played on his mind 199/6|
|MG Johnson||c McIntosh b Vettori||0||3||3||0||0||0.00|
|66.6 New Zealand are chipping away, Vettori bowls it flatter on the off stump, Johnson gets forward and offers a bat-pad catch to McIntosh at silly point who takes it inches off the turf, Aleem Dar sends him on his way immediately 200/7|
|NM Hauritz||not out||12||32||21||2||0||57.14|
|RJ Harris||lbw b Vettori||10||20||17||2||0||58.82|
|72.2 Vettori strikes, the Australian collapse continues, the arm ball does the job, Harris is hit on the front foot as he looks to whip it square, in front of middle and leg, Harris is gone 217/9|
|DE Bollinger||b Vettori||4||9||6||0||0||66.66|
|74.3 the bails are down and the innings is over, Vettori bowls this one quicker and flatter, the ball clips the pad and clips the stumps as Bollinger gets forward to defend, leaves a big gap between pad and bat 231/10|
|Extras||(b 4, lb 6, nb 2)||12|
|Total||(all out; 74.3 overs; 306 mins)||231||(3.10 runs per over)|
