Bracewell to open up from the River Derwent end
Unfortunately for the Black Caps, the bowler friendly conditions of the first three days have evaporated. Traditionally there is always a bit in the Bellerive track first thing in the morning and they will be hoping to exploit any advantage they can
For New Zealand, the importance of the opening session cannot be understated. They need quick wickets this morning or the game will get away from them.
And spare a thought for Tasmania's favourite son, Ricky Ponting, potentially facing his last Test innings in Hobart today, emotions must be riding high, especially following the sad death on Saturday evening of his grandmother
The Australian's recommence requiring 169 to win. Pressure is still on Australian opener Phil Hughes, he would love a good showing here to consolidate his position in the team before the Boxing Day test match
The weather here is much improved on days 2 and 3, blue skies with a bit of cloud, a breeze from the west and play to get away on time at 10:00 am.
Good morning and welcome to Blundstone Arena, Bellerive for Day 4 of the 2nd Test between Australia and New Zealand
The day belonged to the homeside, taking the 7 wickets required in the first session, and then the openers responding with the highest opening stand of the series. Join us tomorrow for the conclusion of this second test
So tomorrow morning Australia will resume on 0/72, requiring 169 runs to win. Hughes is 20 no and Warner 47 no.
17:30 - and that's it, play abandoned for the day due to rain. Play to recommence tomorrow morning at 10:00 am AEDST.
17:20 - and here it comes, rain starting to fall and covers being placed over the square
17:10 - Umpires have just announced a 17:30 start with 17 more overs to play today, provided it doesn't rain any more, but rain is falling heavilly on the Derwent River, about 800 metres away .....
17:00 - Well, the sun is out, rain has cleared, covers are coming off and umpires are coming out to check the conditions. It does look clearer down the river, but rain is still threatening
16:45 - still raining, not heavy but enough to frustrate. Covers over the complete square, more rain still coming up the river
16:30 - it has stopped raining here for the moment and the Umpires have come out to consult with the ground staff, however, from our vantage point we can see another big squall coming up the river which doesn't look good
Just like during the lunch break, here comes the rain, a massive line making it's way up the Derwent from the south, covers coming on. Wind has picked up and it's looking very uninviting
At tea Aus are 0/72 with Hughes 20 no and Warner 47 no. Australia require another 169 runs, NZ need 10 wickets
