In the first Test between New Zealand and Australia in Wellington, Australia batted first and scored 383 runs despite a shaky start at 89/4. Cameron Green played a pivotal role, scoring an unbeaten 174 runs, while Matt Henry of New Zealand took five wickets. However, the match also made headlines due to Kane Williamson’s unusual dismissal when he collided with his teammate Will Young while taking a single.

The run-out attracted more attention as this was the first time that the Kiwi skipper got dismissed in this way in 12 years of him playing the red ball format.

Australia dominated further by taking quick wickets, leaving New Zealand struggling at 42-5 by tea on day two. Josh Hazlewood was the last wicket to fall after a remarkable 116-run partnership with Green. At tea, New Zealand’s Tom Blundell and Glenn Phillips were at the crease, with the team facing a challenging situation.

Australia’s innings was highlighted by Green’s aggressive batting, extending his overnight score of 103 with powerful strokes, including a six that pushed Australia past 300 runs.

In their second innings, the visiting team ended the day at 13-2, with nightwatchman Nathan Lyon not out on six and opener Usman Khawaja on five. Steve Smith and Marnus Labuschagne were dismissed early, with Tim Southee getting Smith bowled with his third delivery and then having Labuschagne, who has been struggling for form, caught behind by Tom Blundell.
