OUT! Caught. Marnus Labuschagne to Tom Blundell. Leg spinner full toss, outside off stump down the track driving, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to mid on, by Lyon. That's the end of that, a disappointing end for Blundell as he skews one he should've smashed. Boult won't come out to bat due to his broken hand so that is victory for the hosts. Australia have beaten New Zealand by 247 runs in Melbourne to take an unassailable 2-0 lead in the series. The hosts got ahead in the contest thanks to a quality century from eventual Player of the Match Travis Head, along with a trio of handy half centuries to help them to an imposing first innings total. In response, the Black Caps were blown away by the incredible Pat Cummins leaving the result all but certain. Tom Blundell made a superb ton to defy the Aussies today however he couldn't take the Kiwis to Day Five, despite their fantastic support in the stands. Special mention also to James Pattinson who was fired up in both innings on his return to the side, bowling some ferocious spells on his home ground. So Australia win the Boxing Day Test comfortably, New Zealand will just be playing for World Test Championship points at the SCG in the New Year. Join us then.

Calamitous running, both batsmen end up at the same end and it's a simple one for Australia to complete the run out. Southee set off, then hesitated and there seemed to be no calling at all. The hosts look likely to finish this off tonight now.

OUT! Caught. Tim Southee to Nathan Lyon. Short, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to fine leg, by Wagner. There might not be a five-wicket haul for Wagner but he gets involved in the final dismissal with a handy catch on the boundary edge. Lyon picked out the only person around the corner and Australia are all out for 467. About par on this ground in the recent years but that doesn't mean this is an easy wicket. Australia had to grind it out early on before allowing themselves to play their shots. Travis Head took full advantage of this with a marvellous century while Paine, Smith and Labuschagne all passed fifty.Once again it has been Neil Wagner who was the stand-out bowler. A fine effort which reaped rewards of 4-83 from his 38 overs. Without him his team could have been in deep trouble.Over to the two New Zealand openers and Tom Latham will be joined by a new partner in Tom Blundell.

OUT! Caught. Tim Southee to Pat Cummins. Slower ball full toss, off stump on the front foot working, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to short mid wicket, by Latham. Australia are in danger of being bowled out in quick fashion. The lower-order has been sent out with one task, score quick runs. In doing this they are giving their wickets away with the slower balls working wonders for New Zealand.

APPEAL! Neil Wagner to Travis Head. Length ball, outside off stump moves in front working, hit pad to fine leg for 2 runs, fielded by de Grandhomme, appeal made for L.B.W. So close to wicket number four for Wagner. Hits the pad and the bowler is much more interested than everyone else. The fact Head shuffled across made it a lot closer than first look. Umpire's call on the stumps so not out remains.

Wickets fall while Head remains stuck on 99. The ball was there to hit over the top but Starc didn't have the timing required to clear the fielders. Straight up and the Kiwi captain took the easiest of catches.

OUT! L.B.W. Neil Wagner to Tim Paine. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, hit pad to short extra cover. The appeal was loud and prolonged from Wagner and rightly so. He knew this was close and once the finger didn't go up he begged Williamson to review. Spot on with the review as ball-tracking shows three red lights and Paine will have to wait a little longer for his first Test century.

Trent Boult to Travis Head. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, to point for no runs, fielded by Nicholls. Wicketless session for New Zealand as Australia grab a stranglehold on the game. Travis Head and Tim Paine have batted beautifully and they are both within reach of Test centuries. Head is the closer on 98 while Paine still has some work to do for the 23 more runs. No joy for the Kiwis and it looks like they will be facing an mammoth task when it comes to batting.

OUT! Caught. Neil Wagner to David Warner. Out-swinging half volley, outside off stump no foot movement driving, thick edge to second slip, by Southee. A stunning catch from Southee sends Warner back.

It's New Zealand's first such occasion in Australia since 1987 and they are under pressure at 1-0 down in the series. James Pattinson returns on his home ground in place of the injured Josh Hazlewood. New Zealand make two changes. Tom Blundell replacing the out of form Jeet Raval and Trent Boult coming back in for Lockie Ferguson who got injured on his debut in Perth. New Zealand have won the toss and will bowl.

New Zealand have been bundled out for 148 giving Australia a commanding lead of 319. Warner and Burns charge off the field which suggests that the hosts will not be enforcing the follow-on, instead they will give their bowlers a chance to rest up. They deserve it as well because they have been phenomenal today. Cummins lead the way with 28-5, backed up expertly by Pattinson and Starc. Only Latham was able to resist for a long period of time for the Black Caps, they are deep in trouble now.

It's been a gritty innings against a world class bowling attack.

APPEAL! Pat Cummins to Mitchell Santner. Seaming in length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, hit pad to wicketkeeper for no runs, by Paine, appeal made for Caught. Massive appeal from behind the stumps, Cummins isn't so sure and neither is the umpire. They decide against the review and replays show the noise came from ball brushing pad.

FOUR! Pat Cummins to Tom Latham. Seaming in length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, inside edge past fine leg for 4 runs. Latham tries an expansive stroke to start the session and the ball goes in completely the opposite direction to which he was aiming. Wry smile from Cummins, once again he starts a spell in the perfect area.

Four wickets in the morning session means it is a great one for Australia. Cummins got the ball rolling with two in the space of two balls, Pattinson joined the act with a ripsnorter and Starc ensured he wasn't left out after drinks. Latham is battling hard for New Zealand but he needs someone to stick with him this afternoon, a task that is by no means easy.

APPEAL! Mitchell Starc to Mitchell Santner. Short, outside off stump ducked Fended, hit body to leg slip for no runs, by Head, appeal made for Caught. Ferocious bowling, Australia are convinced they have another wicket here but the umpire disagrees. Santner was in an awkward position, looking for self-preservation rather than trying to play a proper shot. Replays suggest it is extremely close to the glove, it might well have touched however there isn't conclusive evidence. Paine isn't happy.

OUT! Caught. Mitchell Starc to Colin de Grandhomme. Seaming away back of a length, down leg side on the back foot defending, thick edge to gully, by Warner. Snaffled in the gully, Starc joins the party by ending de Grandhomme's resistance. The big allrounder thought he had this one covered however some extra bounce took him by surprise. It lobbed at a nice pace off the shoulder of the blade and Warner accepted it easily.

James Pattinson to Tom Latham. Seaming away half volley, off stump on the front foot driving, outside edge to second slip for 1 run, dropped catch by Smith, fielded by Burns. Put down and this time the rebound isn't kind to Australia, Latham gets away with one. Smith is normally such a reliable slip fielder but he's misjudged this one, diving across when he probably could have left it for first slip. Frustration for Pattinson after producing another peach.

OUT! L.B.W. Pat Cummins to Henry Nicholls. Seaming in length ball, outside off stump on the front foot working, hit pad to. Two in two, Cummins is on fire and the MCG erupts with joy. The umpire took a long time to raise the finger but he got it right in the end, with ball tracking showing it would have gone on to graze the top of the bails. It's a great delivery to a new batsman, full and fast and Nicholls played all around it. New Zealand in disarray.

OUT! Caught. Pat Cummins to Ross Taylor. Seaming away length ball, outside off stump on the front foot pushing, outside edge to third slip, by Burns, dropped catch by Labuschagne. Big early strike, Cummins is the man for Australia. It's been a nervous start by the Black Caps and this wicket always seemed on the cards. Taylor went at the very full ball with hard hands, the ball flew quickly to third slip where Labuschagne could only parry it up high and Burns settled under the rebound with a huge smile on his face.

Welcome to coverage of Day Three of the Second Test between Australia and New Zealand at the MCG. A fired up Aussie attack made a couple of key breakthroughs last evening to leave the Kiwis under serious pressure, after a marvellous Travis Head century had earlier put the hosts in control. The tourists will need an excellent day with the bat today to stay in the contest, with the Latham-Taylor partnership likely to be crucial. Tim Paine will probably be relying on Nathan Lyon for plenty of overs in the Victorian heat today while the quick bowlers rotate from the other end.

Nathan Lyon to Ross Taylor. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, to extra cover for 1 run, fielded by Starc. After spending nearly two days in the field this was always the worry for New Zealand. A fresh and firing Aussie bowling attack had the new ball in their hand and made things happen. Two late wickets of Tom Blundell and the huge one of Kane Williamson has left New Zealand scrambling to make a decent total. A lot of pressure on Tom Latham and Ross Taylor to go big tomorrow, do join us then.

APPEAL! James Pattinson to Ross Taylor. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot working, hit pad to for no runs, appeal made for L.B.W. Huge stroke of luck for New Zealand. Taylor's kryptonite has always been getting trapped on the front pad early on and Pattinson knew that. Hit high on the front pad which prompted Taylor to ask for the review. Extra bounce on this wicket from the new ball has ball-tracking taking it over the stumps. Taylor survives.

Neil Wagner to Matthew Wade. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, to mid on for no runs, fielded by Williamson. Australia are in complete control of proceedings at the MCG after a fantastic Day Three. Pat Cummins got things rolling for them this morning, nailing a perfect line and length from ball one and finishing with an outstanding 28-5. Mitchell Starc and James Pattinson also chipped in, with Tom Latham the only New Zealand batsman able to resist for any period of time. The Kiwis were bundled out for just 148 leaving them 319 behind and with a mountain to climb to save the match and series. They showed impressive spirit to keep fighting in the final session, however it will take a miracle to prevent the hosts going 2-0 up at some point over the next two days.

FOUR! Tim Southee to Joe Burns. Length ball, outside off stump on the back foot cutting, well timed past third man for 4 runs. The shackles are well and truly off for Burns now, he capitalizes on some width by scything the ball to the fence. There was a fielder in the deep but he was left with no chance.

SIX! Tim Southee to Joe Burns. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed in the air under control over long off for 6 runs. Boom, that's the sort of shot that you would expect to see in the BBL not in a Test match. Burns plants his front foot and then wallops it back over the bowler's head with disdain.
