    This will be a great test for us, Kiwis are ranked second in tests and have not lost a series since 2016/2017 against South Africa

    3/212 Aussies slightly in front, Smith gone, time for 5 & 6 to make a score, looking for 350 plus, Labuschagne going very well, he is a surprise package.

    There was something about Labuschagne that impressed me when he debuted. His bowling will also improve over time.

    For mine our problem seems to be at 5 and 6. Both Matt Wade and Travis Head seem to be able to make a start to an innings and fall to a 'hit and giggle' style of shot. All is well whilst the top order are doing jusat fine thank you very much.

    Cummins and Starc batted much better and contributed almost as many runs. Poor Josh Hazelwood breaking down with so many waiting in the wings for just this chance. Marnus only got a gig when Smithy was skittled.

    And if this is not one of the best catches ever it must be close:-
