    Default Australia v New Zealand, 2nd Test, Hobart | NZ beat Australia by 7 runs

    Hughes, Warner ride luck in chase

    Australia 136 and 0 for 72 (Warner 47*, Hughes 20*) need 169 runs to beat New Zealand 150 and 226 (Taylor 56, Lyon 3-25, Pattinson 3-54 , Siddle 3-66)



    A fortunate Phillip Hughes and an enterprising David Warner guided Australia to 0 for 72 in pursuit of 241 following a tense start to the fourth innings in Hobart. Rain arrived during the tea break and could not be shaken, meaning the duo will resume on the fourth morning to confront the session in which 19 wickets have fallen over the first three days. New Zealand's bowlers will consider themselves in with a chance of disturbing the chase, particularly against the nervy Hughes.

    He had gloved a catch down the legside off the bowling of Chris Martin when he was on 0, but the visitors' appeal was muted and no DRS referral was requested. Batting uncomfortably for his Test place, Hughes survived in the company of Warner, who played more confidently though he too had a slice of luck.
    They were batting after rain delayed the post-lunch resumption, having watched New Zealand slip from 3 for 139 overnight to 9 for 203. New Zealand's lead was given an unlikely top-up by the last pair of debutant Trent Boult and Martin. Boult struck four boundaries and Martin survived nine balls before his partner swung Nathan Lyon into the deep.
    Lyon's three wickets meant he had wrapped up the New Zealand tail for the third time in four innings, but it was Peter Siddle and James Pattinson who did the bulk of the heavy lifting for the hosts. Siddle struck in the first over of the morning and persisted admirably throughout, while Pattinson's swing and speed accounted for Ross Taylor, whose 56 was the highest score of the match, and the dogged Dean Brownlie.
    Ricky Ponting was late to the ground on the third morning, having received the news that his grandmother had died overnight. His team-mates wore black armbands onto the field in recognition, and were soon patting Ponting on the back as he clung onto a sharp chance in the day's first over. Siddle moved the ball fractionally away from a perfect length, and Kane Williamson's feet did not move swiftly enough to avoid the edge.

    Brownlie had been Australia's chief batting tormentor in this series, and for 32 runs he hung tough . The ball continued to seam and swing, Siddle and Pattinson persistent and pacey, but in the absence of a wicket Michael Clarke was forced to make a change. Mitchell Starc could not improve on his first-day bowling at the Gabba, but his short ball disrupted the visitors' progress by clouting Brownlie on the left wrist as he ducked. Magic spray was called for, and Brownlie's touch was affected.
    Taylor watched it all from the other end, and in the next over he did not get far enough forward to negate Pattinson's away swing. As in Brisbane, he edged, offering a chance that Clarke held adeptly to his right. Pattinson with in fine rhythm in his second spell of the session, and a bouncer grazed Brownlie's ginger left glove on the way through to Brad Haddin.
    Reece Young fell victim to Siddle's nip-backer, reward for a wonderfully relentless display, and Tim Southee was unable to contain himself against Lyon. The first ball sailed over Michael Hussey's head for six, the second skimmed beyond mid-off for four, and the third picked out Hussey in a foolhardy attempt to repeat the first. Doug Bracewell swung rashly two balls later to be bowled.
    Martin was very nearly lbw to Lyon before he had scored, but evaded the appeal and allowed Boult to swing for the boundary. He did so with success until he picked out Hussey in much the same manner as Southee had done.
    Hughes faced up to the first over of Australia's chase and played Martin solidly enough, but in the third he should have been out. He looked a guilty man as New Zealand chose not to refer to technology for proof of a gloved catch, and went on to capitalise on their oversight.
    Warner was the more positive of the duo, eluding a trio of lbw appeals that did not quite meet the precise criteria for a dismissal, and once snicking Southee past his leg stump to the fine leg fence. He also managed a handful of more authoritative boundaries, and gave Hughes an embrace of solidarity as they walked off for the interval, and ultimately the day.

    NZ wins second test




    New Zealand broke an 18-year drought with a thrilling seven-run victory over Australia in Hobart today.
    Australia, chasing 241 to wrap up a 2-0 series win were dismissed for 233 when last man Nathan Lyon, after adding 34 with undefeated opener David Warner, was bowled by seamer Doug Bracewell to nail the win.Bracewell finished with best test figures, six for 40 in just his third test.
    Warner played an outstanding hand to bat through the innings and finish on 123 not out off 170 balls.
    The day began with Australia 72 without loss, needing a further 169.
    Instead the day turned into a disaster for the hosts, and unconfined delight for New Zealand.
    While Bracewell, who took nine for 60 in the match, led the way, his three fast-medium mates, Chris Martin, Tim Southee and Trent Boult all made important contributions.It is New Zealand's eighth test win from 52 tests against Australia, and the first since Eden Park in March 1993.Australia's batting fell apart in a period from 21 minutes before lunch to half an hour after the resumption.
    In that period they lost seven for 40 from 11.3 overs.Australia lost their three key batsmen, former captain Ricky Ponting, current skipper Michael Clarke and the other veteran Mike Hussey in the space of 15 balls and 10 minutes, all to Bracewell.Wicketkeeper Brad Haddin and Warner put on 33 to refloat the innings before Haddin, Peter Siddle, James Pattinson and Mitchell Starc departed in 11 balls for just seven runs.Warner started pushing for runs and pulses were racing when Lyon was given lbw to Southee by umpire Asad Rauf. Lyon sought a referral, which showed the ball pitching fractionally outside his leg stump.Seven balls later another lbw appeal, this time from Bracewell, was given not out. This time New Zealand went upstairs, and the replay showed the ball missing Lyon's leg stump.Slowly the last pair had whittled the target down until 16 were needed when a nervous drinks break was taken.It was down to eight needed when Bracewell got a ball through Lyon's defence and the New Zealanders hugged excitedly in the middle of the ground.It is New Zealand's third win on Australian soil, and first since 1985.
