OUT! Caught. Mitchell Starc to Mitchell Santner. Short, outside off stump moves in front hooking, top edge in the air uncontrolled to fine leg, by Behrendorff. Mitchell Starc ends with five. Hits the pitch hard, Santner shuffled across to use the pace and help it over fine leg for six, but he doesn't get enough distance behind the ball, and it is easily pouched on the boundary edge.A dominant win by Australia in the end. Some magnificent bowling, and even better catching on display throughout the day. That vital partnership between Usman Khawaja and Alex Carey proved to be the difference between the two sides. New Zealand were very poor with the bat, and should've been more attacking when they had Australia against the ropes in the first innings. However, full credit must go to the Aussies, and they now go three points clear at the top of the table. New Zealand remain in third place.Tomorrow's World Cup action is a tasty one. England against India. Plenty at stake for the hosts. It should not be missed.

SIX! Nathan Lyon to Mitchell Santner. Off break length ball, off stump on the front foot slog sweeping, well timed in the air under control over deep square leg for 6 runs. A lusty blow from Santner. He gets down on one knee, and heaves it over square leg for a maximum.

OUT! Bowled. Mitchell Starc to Lockie Ferguson. Length ball, outside off stump no foot movement defending, missed to. Two in two for Starc now! He's on a hattrick. Can he repeat what Boult did earlier? Another superb delivery, and he is just far too good for tailenders. Ferguson defends down the wrong line, and gets his off pole pegged back. Wonderful bowling.

1
Nathan Lyon to Mitchell Santner. Off break length ball, outside off stump down the track driving, well timed to mid on for 1 run, dropped catch by Warner. Warner nearly joins the spectacular catch party for this match. Nailed to him at mid on, and if he was a little taller, he probably would've snaffled it. Used all his height, and it nearly stuck, but just rolls out the fingertips to land safely. Superb try.

W
OUT! L.B.W. Mitchell Starc to Ish Sodhi. Length ball, outside off stump no foot movement defending, hit pad to. Starc gets his third. New Zealand are folding. The left armer is round the wicket, arrowing into the stumps, and Sodhi is stuck on the crease. The pad seemed to get in the way of the bat coming down, and it meant he couldn't keep it out. Struck in front, and no hesistation from the umpire. A review was used, and HawkEye says it was umpire's call on height. Good enough to stick with the decision.
