There it is, Lyon snares Southee with one that skids straight on and Smith makes no mistake. Hugs and high fives all round for Australia, commiserations for New Zealand. Australia have beaten New Zealand by 296 runs in Perth to take a 1-0 lead in this Trans-Tasman series. It was a dominant display by the hosts built around a sublime century by Marnus Labuschagne and some ferocious fast bowling by Mitchell Starc. Pat Cummins and Nathan Lyon also chipped in with handy wickets, an important contribution with Josh Hazlewood unable to bowl. New Zealand were also hampered by the loss of Lockie Ferguson to injury as well as a tame first innings batting effort, leaving them with a massive deficit. Neil Wagner and Tim Southee showed incredible fighting spirit and physical fitness to keep the tourists going, while BJ Watling was his usual defiant self with the bat today. In the end though it was a massive victory for the Aussies, putting them in a great position heading to the MCG for the Boxing Day Test. The Black Caps have time to reflect before then so we shall expect them to come back stronger.
