Australia beat New Zealand by 279 runs
So that is it from this game and this series. The Kiwis will actually be relieved this is over. They have not only gone through a bad time on the field but also off the field. They though now have time to regroup and prepare for another stern test which awaits as they will be playing India in just less than a months time. The Aussies on the other, hand have dominated the home season in some manner. They can be very pleased with how things have gone for them. However, it is now time for them to take their mind off the longer format as they will be heading to India for an ODI series which will begin in a few weeks. For now though, you can follow the South Africa and England Test or the Big Bash which will begin shortly. Till then, take care and goodbye!
The Trans-Tasman trophy has been handed to Paine and now his teammates have been asked to join him to celebrate. The Australian players are pushing Labuschagne ahead and they went him to lead the side over the podium but he probably is too shy to do so and it is Cummins who goes up the stairs first and then the rest follow. They are now seen posing with the trophy. All happy faces and rightly so.
Victorious Australian skipper, Tim Paine, is jumping and running to give the interview. On the double series whitewash, Paine feels that he is very lucky to be the captain of such a team. Observes that the batting has become very consistent while the pace attack just keeps getting better and better, marvelling at the fact that in spite of Josh Hazlewood injured, there was someone stepping up. Praises Nathan Lyon for his support as well. On Australia's improvement over the last 12 months, Paine believes that they were getting 20 wickets before as well but were not scoring runs - something which has happened in this series and is happy to see the competition. Stresses that in the last 12 months, they were relying too much on too few individuals but this series has probably thrown up a few options. However, he is cautious to say that the away series coming up will be a true test of his team's character. On the contributions by the players to the bushfire victims, Paine says that the group realizes as a whole that the firefighters are doing a tremendous job in trying to save the victims, who are very unfortunate to be a part of those fires. Adds that his team is lucky to be just playing cricket and not be out there, needing to brave the dangers.
New Zealand series skipper (he was not playing this match), Kane Williamson, says that he is feeling much better in terms of health. Praises Australia for their clinical display, right from the first Test of the series which pushed New Zealand on the back foot, from where they were never able to recover. Hopes to take the learnings from this series into the future. On being asked to point the weak links, Kane says that it is not just one thing but plenty as Australia outplayed them in all departments. For starters, he says that his bowlers were not able to get wickets in clusters and then with the bat, they could not forge partnerships. Wants the individuals in his group to regroup and come back collectively as a stronger unit. Feels fantastic, he says, to see the depth in the Kiwi squad and as a captain, to have so many options. Admits that plenty of guys in his side were playing in Australia for the first time, so it was very tough, very disappointing and very frustrating. Feels that after months of terrific work before this series, they did have hopes of doing well here but sadly, it did not pan out that way.
MARNUS LABUSCHAGNE HAS BEEN NAMED THE PLAYER OF THE MATCH AND THE SERIES. Feels that it has been an amazing summer for him and his team - the bowlers and the batsmen, coming together as a group. On getting his maiden double Test ton in front of his family, he thanks them for their infinite support which has helped him get thus far and also thanks them for coming here to watch him play. On the reason for his success, Marnus feels that he has learnt to concentrate harder and not commit silly mistakes. On the upcoming tour to India, ML believes that it is going to be a great opportunity, IF he gets the opportunity to play there.
David Warner is now up for a chat with Kath Loughnan. Credits the team for starting the summer the way they did and then build it against Pakistan and finally end it here. Praises Nathan Lyon for the way he answered his critics. On his own ton in this Test, David says that he always maintained that he was never out of form and was hitting the ball well in the nets. Feels that the hard work just paid off and is happy to have contributed to the Jane McGrath cause. On Pattinson's catch, Warner laughs and says that he was actually comparing it to the one taken by Glenn McGrath in 2004/05. On Joe Burns' contribution, Warner admits that Joe Burns has not quite done well as per his expectations but expects him to bounce back hard, since there is the Big Bash to follow and later on, the Sheffield Shield before the tour to Bangladesh.
Kath Loughnan is interviewing Nathan Lyon. On Australia becoming the number 2 Test side, Nathan Lyon feels very happy to see the team getting back to the top slowly. On his own bowling, 'Gary' says that it is a special feeling to perform well in front of his own crowd. Feels even more special to have contributed to the Jane McGrath cause. Lyon says that there is a good gelling within the group and they want to be the number 1 side in the world but admits that there is a lot of work to be done prior to that.
The Kiwis had another opportunity to show their mettle, nobody expected them to chase this down but at least they were expected to make the Aussies work hard for the wickets but that was once again not the case. They were bundled out for a mere 136 within 47.5 overs with Lyon once again bagging a fifer.
The hosts though decided not to enforce the follow-on and they played an attacking brand of cricket. Batted for around two and a half sessions before declaring. Warner's ton was the highlight and because of him and Labuschagne's half ton, the Aussies gave the visitors a huge target.
In reply, the Kiwis started off well, they had a wicket-less session on Day 2 and it gave the feeling that their battling line-up has finally arrived and they might just give Australia a run for their money but that was not the case. The Aussies bowlers were all over them on Day 3 and blew them away even before they could avoid the follow-on. Nathan Lyon and Pat Cummins were the tormentor-in-chief with the offie taking a fifer.
The story has been the same right from the Day 1 of this series and it continues to be the same in this Test too. Australia dominated this game right from the word go. They won the toss, elected to bat, posted a huge total on a wicket which was not that easy to score. Marnus Labuschagne was the star for them with the bat with a double ton.
To be honest this series has been a real disappointment, everybody expected it to be a cracker but New Zealand have surrendered in all the three Tests. Even in this one, let alone the margin of defeat but the manner in which they were beaten was actually embarrassing. A little less than two sessions is what they had to play out to take it into Day 5 but they failed to do that too. Except for Watling and Colin de Grandhomme no batter showed any fight. The rest just had no answers to this excellent Australian bowling attack.
The teams are seen shaking hands which means that Matt Henry won't be coming out to bat. Australia have won the Test match, they have completed the whitewash and it is another emphatic victory for them. They have blown away the visitors for the third time in a row!

Nathan Lyon To BJ Watling OUT!
OUT! CAUGHT! BJ Watling falls and that might be the end of the game as well. Yes, the players are shaking hands. That means Matt Henry is not going to come out to bat. Full and down the leg side, Watling sweeps it but hits it straight to Pat Cummins at short backward square leg. The catch is taken and that is it. AUSTRALIA WIN BY 279 RUNS AND SWEEP THE SERIES 3-0!

Mitchell Starc To William Somerville OUT!
OUT! BOWLED! Lock, stock and barrell. That is a Mitchell Starc special. Tail-enders and fast bowlers. Special relation. Keep targetting the body and then the stumps. Give them a whiff that you are going to hurt them by banging it in. Keep pegging them on the back foot and then fire in a yorker. Right at the base of the stumps. The woodwork is shattered. 15 minutes left for the close today. Guess the game will be extended by 30 minutes if New Zealand don't get bowled out before the allotted time of Stumps.

Nathan Lyon To Todd Astle OUT!
OUT! CAUGHT! Why would you play this shot when there are 20 minutes left for Stumps? Very very uncharacteristic from Todd Astle. Is he the same Astle who faced 95 balls for his 25 in the first innings? Brain fade. Flighted delivery outside off, Astle looks to play the slog sweep, aiming to drag it but gets a top edge. Now, initially, it looks like the ball will land in between. Short mid-wicket runs back while James Pattinson at mid on rushes to his right. He gives it a good chase, clearly indicating that he wants to go for the catch. Keeps his eyes on the ball and then dives full stretch to his right to take a stunner. Superbly done. 23 minutes left on Day 4, Australia need 3 wickets. Or 2, if Matt Henry does not bat.

Just over! Not sure what mind-set the Kiwis have come out to bat with. Astle has played at least 4 attacking shots in the balls he has faced till now. Comes down the track this time but does not quite get to the pitch of it. Still goes ahead with the loft. Just about clears the mid on fielder and bags two.

Nathan Lyon To Colin de Grandhomme OUT!
OUT! CAUGHT! Oh dear... 40 minutes to go to Stumps and Colin de Grandhomme throws is away. He cannot control himself. Loopy delivery on middle, de Grandhomme comes down the track and looks to go over the leg side. However, he does not get to the pitch of the ball. It goes off the inner half of the bat and lobs towards deep mid-wicket. There are three men stationed for the catch - deep square leg, deep mid-wicket and long on. Joe Burns gets across to his left from deep mid-wicket while long on rushes to his right. In the end, Burns calls for it and takes it comfortably. This is what happens when you want to play your natural game. Becomes very difficult to understand when to curb your instincts. Still, a pretty decent innings to conclude a difficult tour of Australia. 4 wickets as per the scorecard needed for Australia, but 3, if Matt Henry does not bat. 40 minutes left. Do they have enough time?

Just misses the stumps! Almost a replica of his first innings dismissal. Only that one was a touch wider outside off. This is on a good length on off, Watling looks to tap but there is extra bounce on that one. The ball takes the inside edge but misses the off stump and goes towards the leg side.

Pat Cummins To Ross Taylor OUT!
OUT! TIMBER! That is as good as a delivery you can bowl. Absolute gem! Taylor was shell-shocked. He walks back looking at the big screen and probably wondering what wrong he did but he could have done nothing there. Cummins just continuously shows why he is the best going around with such deliveries. He goes wide of the crease and angles it into the middle pole. It is slightly fuller in length. Taylor looks to push at it, he plays the original trajectory but the ball pitches and moves outward. Beats the outside edge and hits the stump behind. Taylor departs almost immediately after he breaks the record of the leading run-scorer for New Zealand in Tests. Half the side back in the hut for the Kiwis.

We are back for the final session of Day 4 and could probably be the final session of the match too. The Australian players are out in the middle. Ross Taylor and BJ Watling will resume their innings for the visitors. Nathan Lyon will start the proceedings for the final session of Day 4.
... Day 4, Session 3 ...
What a session for Australia! First they scored some quick runs and declared and then have blown away the top order of the Kiwis! They are all over the visitors at the moment and are surely sensing a victory today itself. Starc and Lyon have been tormentors-in-chief. Starc took two at the start and Lyon took the other two. New Zealand though have their best batter, Ross Taylor out there and he is partnered by Watling. Both need to fight it out and at least take this game in Day 5. Can they do so? We will find out in a bit.

NOT OUT! It is a bump ball! The ball bounces just ahead of the shoe. This is tossed up outside off, Taylor looks to sweep but gets an inside edge, it hits the boot and lobs up. Paine takes it moving forward. An appeal, a confident one from the Aussies. The umpires get together and then take it upstairs. The SOFT SIGNAL IS NOT OUT. It stays that way as it has bounced in front of the boot.
Now then! This seems to be another wicket for the Aussies. They have appealed for a catch. The umpires have a chat and then take it upstairs. They are going upstairs to check if it is a bump ball or has he hit it directly on his boot. The SOFT SIGNAL IS NOT OUT!

Nathan Lyon To Glenn Phillips OUT!
OUT! There is something on Hot Spot and Glenn Phillips now has to take the long walk back. Lyon adds two more to his fifer from the first innings. Phillips bags a duck in the second innings of his career. The first ball of this over plays a big part in the dismissal. That one turned back in sharply and hit the pads. This one lands in a similar area and goes on with the arm. GP goes back and defends inside the line. The ball seems to have gone off something to Paine who takes a very good catch. An appeal, the umpire waits and then raises the finger. Glenn, just like Taylor indicates that he has not edged it and reviews. Replays though show the on-field call is once again right. Also, New Zealand have lost both their reviews now.
Glenn Phillips reviews now! He has been given out caught behind and he signals the 'T'.

Nathan Lyon To Jeet Raval OUT!
OUT! There is a slight spike on Snicko and Raval has to take the long walk back. It might be the faintest of edges and hence, Raval may not have felt it. Lyon strikes in his first over itself and he gets rid of Raval again. A lovely delivery this. He tosses it up outside off, gets it to drift back into the batter. It lands and then turns away. Raval lunges and tries to defend but due to the turn, the outside edge is taken. A huge shout and up goes the finger. Raval stands his ground, he then indicates to Taylor that he feels he did not hit it and then takes the review. Time for the replays and it shows the on-field call is the right one. Another low score for Raval and New Zealand slip further.
Do Australia have another? Aleem Dar has raised his finger for an appeal for caught behind. Raval though reviews as he feels he has not hit it.

Mitchell Starc To Tom Latham OUT!
OUT! Umpire's call as that is just about clipping the leg pole. We saw Williamson been given a similar decision in the last Test and this time it is Latham. Tom can really consider himself unlucky here. Most of the times, that wouldn't have been given. Australia won't care though. This is angled into the pads, Latham looks to flick but misses to get hit on the pads. An appeal and up goes the finger. Latham reviews after a chat with his partner. Replays roll in and it shows the outer part of the ball to be clipping the leg stump. Latham walks back but does not take a review along. Big wicket as he could really play a gritty innings. New Zealand in big trouble here.
Review time! Latham has been given out LBW and he has reviewed. It seems to be going down leg.

Mitchell Starc To Tom Blundell OUT!
OUT! TAKEN! Number one goes down! Starc provides the breakthrough but you have to credit Nathan Lyon in this wicket. That is an amazing catch by the offie. It is fuller and outside off, Blundell creams the square drive towards point. Lyon there dives to his right and takes it with two hands outstretched. The ball was almost past him, that is an outstanding effort. Blundell walks back for a low score and an early wicket for Australia.
