New Zealand in Australia

The Black Caps are touring their bigger neighbours currently it what many think might be their best chance to beat them since the 80s.

Will need to do better than in the current tour match against a Cricket Australia XI. Aaron Finch has a double century as the hosts finished the first day on 376/0!

I've added the fixtures that are left to the original post.

NZ had been having pretty good preparation up to this point. Will be interesting to see the players picked for Australia, don't think there's been a squad announcement yet.

Cheers, too much effort to copy out on a mobile!

Be interesting to see how the DN test goes

NZ seemed Happy with the warm up math pitch provided then. Are Oz playing the similar games they did with us where we played floaty dobber bowlers?

Good response from NZ - pitch obviously DOA.

The Kiwis have taken a hammering on day one at the Gabba. 388/2 with a big century for Warner and a first test ton for Khawaja.

That's about 3/900 for New Zealand's bowling over the past two games.

Ouch. I assume it didn't swing. Without swing Boult is ordinary and Southee a pie chucker.

I was thinking that this was on BT Sport but that doesn't start till next year which is annoying. Sounds like an absolute hammering today.

This was like watching Pakistan bat against England, perhaps even worse.

Twin hundreds for Warner, and a maiden hundred for Burns. This is an absolute battering again. Wtf has happened to NZ's attack?

Typical Aussie conditions. Some pace and bounce, not much in the way of swing or seam (except for a little bit at times in first innings). Hence, lots of pies on offer. Also a very generous spinner, going for plenty.

Some good batting in favored conditions, but still, disappointing bowling. Rarely looked threatening.

ps. Southee injured. Was the pick of the bowlers in the first innings (which isn't saying a lot). Looks like he carried a crook back into the match.

pps. A great innings from Williamson. Without this, the Kiwis would definitely have been made to bat again.

The Gabba is of course a fortress for Australia but you would have expected a bit more fight from this NZ side, which has been very good indeed over the last couple of years. Sadly apart from the magnificent Williamson (who is right up there with Root and Smith) this has resembled some of the poorer NZ sides from the late-2000s/early-2010s.

Still, take no credit away from Aus - fantastic team in hard and bouncy conditions.

Australia really are the flat track bullies at the moment, and I mean that as a compliment. With fast scoring batsmen they can pile the runs up before the other side can draw breath and with their array of quicks, always more likely to have spells where they run through a lineup even on a shirt front.

Kane Williamson though. Absolute class.

I have a feeling that's gonna be Root's lot next time we tour.

perhaps New Zealand might have slowed things up had they taken those chances that came their way. Still hard to believe they are the same team that toured England this year.

The team that lost the opening test at Lord's and lost the ODIs, being flayed all overout the park?

If Boult's off-colour and Ross Taylor or the superb Kane Williamson gets out early they'll always be vulnerable.

Will still be a big scalp for Australia to pick up.
