Australia vs New Zealand cricket day four Test LIVE updates, scores, odds, how to watch

Lyon needs three balls to get the edge of Southee (4) and it floats delicately to Smith at slip. That’s all she wrote for New Zealand, the No.2-ranked team in the world who have been totally outplayed by Australia in this Test. No Black Caps player was able to stick it out in the stinking hot conditions in Perth, with Watling top-scoring with 40.  Starc was stuck on nine wickets for the match with his 4-45 in the second innings, matched by Lyon’s 4-63. The other wickets went to Cummins, who was unlucky to record only 2-31 off his 19 overs, the most economical of the Aussie bowlers at 1.63 runs an over. Now these teams get an extra day off ahead of the Boxing Day Test in Melbourne. It’s been a hell of a day and, in the end, a clinical performance marked by rather understated celebrations by Australia’s standards. That’s all from me, good night!
