3rd Over
Australia defeated New Zealand by 9 wickets to win the First Vodafone Test and take a lead in the two-match series. Thanks so much for joining us and we'll be back on in Hobart from Friday. Goodbye from Brisbane.
First Vodafone Test - Australia 427 (Clarke 139, Haddin 80, Ponting 78, Martin 3/89) & 1/19 (Warner 8*) defeat New Zealand 295 (Vettori 96, Brownlie 77*, Lyon 4/69) & 150 (Pattinson 5/27, Lyon 3/19). Attendance - 40670. MOTM - Pattinson.
Now we move on to Hobart for the second and final leg of this series. We know Australian all-rounder Daniel Christian will join the squad and there's a chance the injured Pat Cummins and Shaun Marsh may be available too.
New Zealand could take a little bit away from here because they spent parts of this game on top. They could even have had a first innings lead at one point. Dean Brownlie batted very nicely in this game while Dan Vettori was solid as always.
Then this morning it was the James Pattinson show. He ripped the hearts out of New Zealand by taking the first 5 wickets of the innings. What was a tight contest for a while, ended up a huge victory.
A huge win in the end for Australia after this game changed on the back of a string of dropped catches by New Zealand yesterday. From there Clarke and Haddin built a big partnership, creating a healthy lead.
D.Warner - 12* (4 balls, 14 minutes), U.Khawaja - 0* (4 balls, 6 minutes). Unbeaten 2nd wicket partnership of 8 runs.
Over 2.2: Bracewell to Warner, FOUR, short ball and there it is with a pull shot over wide mid on. It crashes into the fence and Australia have rolled to a massive 9 wicket victory!
Over 2.1: Bracewell to Warner, FOUR, gets forward and punches a drive back past the bowler and through mid off. Just 4 to win.
2nd Over
3rd Over: Doug Bracewell coming on for Southee at the Stanley St end.
Over 1.6: Martin to Khawaja, no run, on the crease and leaves outside the off stump for a wicket maiden. AUS 1/11 (Warner 4, Khawaja 0).
Over 1.5: Martin to Khawaja, no run, shuffles across and defends to the leg-side.
Over 1.4: Martin to Khawaja, no run, forward and leaves outside the off stump.
Over 1.3: Martin to Khawaja, no run, squared up slightly and defends along the ground to the slips.
That was a really good catch because the ball flew off the middle of the bat. It was straight to him though and following the drop, was the second Hughes' edge in as many balls.
P.Hughes - c:Guptill b:Martin 7 (6 balls, 6 minutes). FOW 1/11 (1.2), 1st wicket partnership (Hughes/Warner) of 11 runs (8 balls, 6 minutes). The new batsman is Usman Khawaja.
Over 1.2: Martin to Hughes, no run, OUT, gone next ball! Well, that wasn't great because the ball was short and wide. He sliced a cut shot straight to Guptill who makes no mistake. AUS 1/11
Over 1.1: Martin to Hughes, no run, DROPPED, three slips and a gully as Hughes is squared up and edging straight to McCullum at 2nd slip! You wouldn't believe it the catch has gone straight down, that's all four of them behind the stumps to spill a catch n
1st Over
2nd Over: Chris Martin with the new ball at the Vulture St end for what could be the last over of the match.
Over 0.6: Southee to Warner, no run, up on his toes and defends towards point. AUS 0/11 (Hughes 7, Warner 4) with just 8 more to win.
Over 0.5: Southee to Warner, FOUR, a bit of width and Warner slashes it away over backward point. Racing away to the boundary and just 8 to win now.
Over 0.4: Southee to Hughes, three runs, works the ball away off his pads through midwicket. The ball was swinging in but he played it well.
Over 0.3: Southee to Hughes, no run, on the front foot again and leaving the ball alone outside off stump.
Over 0.2: Southee to Hughes, no run, gets forward and leaves outside the off stump.
Over 0.1: Southee to Hughes, FOUR, five slips in as Hughes is rocking back to a short ball and punching it through backward point.
