OUT! Caught. Nathan Lyon to BJ Watling. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the front foot sweeping, to backward square leg, by Cummins. Watling's resistance is over! He reaches out to sweep, cannot quite get over the ball to keep it down, and drags it into the hands of backward square leg. That's five for Lyon in this innings, and ten in the match. What a bowler. Matt Henry won't be coming out to bat because of his broken finger, so that will be that!Another completely dominating performance by Australia. They win by 279 runs, and secure a 3-0 whitewash. The standout performers in this match was Marnus Labuschagne's double century in the first innings, David Warner's century in the second, and Nathan Lyon's ten wicket haul. Once again they completely outplayed the Kiwis, and thoroughly deserved their victory. Not many positives to take for the visitors, they just weren't up to the standards to compete with the Aussies.

OUT! Bowled. Mitchell Starc to William Somerville. Reverse Swing-Out yorker, middle stump no foot movement defending, missed to. That is way too good. Somerville had no chance in keeping that out. Angled into the toes, a little bit of tail away, and at a quick pace too. The Kiwi tried his best to dig it out, but couldn't. The middle stump gets flattened.

OUT! Caught. Nathan Lyon to Todd Astle. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the front foot slog sweeping, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to mid wicket, by Pattinson. That's a beauty of a catch! Lyon has four. Astle attempts a swipe over cow corner, but mis-hits it. The ball goes up high, Pattinson runs round from mid on, and takes a diving two-handed catch inches from the turf. Superb. Australia are three away.

OUT! Bowled. Neil Wagner to Mitchell Starc. Length ball, outside off stump no foot movement working, missed to. Much deserved wicket for Wagner after bowling so many overs in this heat. Beat Starc on the inside as the ball carried on with the angle and the Aussie tailender was not confident enough to get forward.It is also tea which will give the Kiwi opening batsmen time to compose themselves and get ready to face some hostile bowling. They are already staring at a huge deficit thanks to a marvellous maiden double-century from Labuschagne along with a pitch which is starting to play tricks. This is not going to be easy against this bowling attack.

OUT! Caught & Bowled. Todd Astle to Marnus Labuschagne. Leg spinner length ball, outside off stump on the front foot working, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled back to bowler, by Astle. Finally New Zealand dismiss Marnus Labuschagne but not until after he has scored 215 runs. Maybe over confidence trying to work the ball against the turn and once he didn't reach the pitch he was in trouble. Some fizz off the surface for the leg spinner.

OUT! Bowled. William Somerville to Matthew Wade. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the front foot sweeping, missed to. Not many people were expecting Somerville to open up this morning but it is a plan which has paid off straight away for New Zealand. Beats the sweep of Wade and clips the outside of off stump.

William Somerville to Marnus Labuschagne. Off break length ball, down leg side on the front foot working, hit pad to short leg for no runs, fielded by Phillips. Yesterday was largely dominated by the Aussie batsmen and Marnus Labuschagne. He has not stopped scoring runs since coming into the Ashes and day one was no different. A cenury he scored on a pitch which had a bit in it for the bowlers early on and then later with the new ball. The Kiwi attack were not able to use the conditions to their favour and then they were left to toil in the hot sun as runs leaked. They will be hoping today will be different but with the temperature set to soar they need early wickets, and a few of them.

Matt Henry to Matthew Wade. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, mis-timed back to bowler for no runs, fielded by Henry. Take a bow Marnus Labuschagne. To score 130 on this surface is a fantastic effort, and not only that this is his fourth century in five Tests, all of which have come in the first innings. Australia finish on 283-3 and with the new ball nibbling around earlier they will be very happy with their efforts.It was hard work for the bowlers once the shine went off the ball. In the afternoon session there were too many loose deliveries from the spinners and that allowed Australia to bat with no pressure. Tomorrow morning is definitely going to be key to the match as if New Zealand go wicketless they could be in for another long, hot day in the field. See you then.

Labuschagne has done what he has done all summer and notched up an eighth Test fifty while Steve Smith took his time to get off the mark but has now begun to find his feet. Runs have leaked when the spinners have been on and that's the time when New Zealand have wanted to create some pressure. They might need another Neil Wagner bombardment to get them back into the game.

OUT! Caught. Neil Wagner to David Warner. Back of a length, down leg side on the back foot pulling, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to leg gully, by de Grandhomme. How often does the bouncer tactic work for Wagner? Straight away after lunch New Zealand resorted to a legside field and instantly it pays off. Around the wicket coming at Warner and even though it wasn't perfectly directed Warner shovels it around the corner into the hands of de Grandhomme.

Todd Astle to Marnus Labuschagne. Leg spinner length ball, to leg on the front foot defending, to silly mid on for no runs, fielded by Blundell. Lunch has been called on day one and once again it has been the Aussie batsmen who have dominated. Even though there was appreciable movement for the Kiwi bowlers they weren't quite able to put enough balls in the right areas to make it count. A couple of quick wickets are required after the break as this wicket is flattening out as the Aussies will be getting ready to pile on the runs.

Start of Australia Innings. Hello and welcome to the third and final Test between the Trans-Tasman rivals, Australia and New Zealand. It hasn't been a happy tour so far for the Kiwis and things aren't getting any better with the loss of key players due to a virus, including their captain Kane Williamson. In his absence Tom Latham will take over while Matt Henry, Jeet Raval, Todd Astle, Will Somerville and Glenn Phillips all come in, with Phillips making his debut.For Australia nothing changes tactically or through team changes as they name the same XI and also get first chance to post a big total after winning the toss.Plenty happening at the SCG with plenty of pink of show for the McGrath Foundation. A wonderful occasion and both teams will want to put on a show for the Sydney crowd who have had a lot to deal with recently.

OUT! Stumped. Nathan Lyon to Matt Henry. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, bottom edge to wicketkeeper, by Paine. Five for Lyon! An odd dismissal, this. Henry blocks it into the turf, it rolls back to Paine, who whips off the bails instantly. Henry's back foot slid out, but he never even thought about getting back. Maybe he didn't know where the ball had gone. Clearly stumped, and that's the end of the innings.A frustrating innings from the Kiwis. Many of their batsmen got starts, but no one could make that meaningful score. Lyon and Cummins the standouts with the ball, as per usual. Australia won't enforce the follow-on, so they will be back out batting in a few minutes time to add to their lead of 203.

Wobble seam down a probing line, and the ball jags back in between bat and pad to peg back the off stump. Not much Phillips can do about that.

Marnus Labuschagne to Todd Astle. Leg spinner length ball, outside off stump on the front foot Leave, Left to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Paine. A very similar session to the morning, that one. Three more wickets on the board for Australia, and they solidify their strong position in the match. New Zealand with some poor choices has gifted the hosts a few, and that will disappoint them. Glenn Phillips has looked good on debut, although he has been dropped twice and was out on a no-ball. Can the visitors survive the rest of the day? Find out in the evening session shortly.

OUT! Run Out. Marnus Labuschagne to Colin de Grandhomme. Leg spinner length ball, to leg on the front foot working, to mid wicket for 1 run, fielded by Wade, by Paine. Was there any need for that? An extremely risky second run attempted by de Grandhomme, and he ends up being an inch short of his ground. Tucked it into the legside, he took on Wade's throw, but that proved to be the wrong decision. Sharp fielding, and Paine did the rest.

Nathan Lyon looked dangerous throughout, bagging two scalps, and Pat Cummins chipped in with the important wicket of Tom Latham. New Zealand have looked comfortable with the bat in stages, but haven't been able to grind it out and keep their concentration for long enough periods. Interesting afternoon session to come.

OUT! Bowled. Nathan Lyon to Tom Blundell. Off break back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot flick, hit pad to. It's snuck through to clipped leg stump!

Welcome to Day 3 of this third Test at the SCG. The hosts are in command after posting a hefty total of 454, but New Zealand have started solidly in their response. One of the Kiwi batsmen will want to follow in the footsteps of Marnus Labuschagne, who notched up a brilliant double century yesterday. However, that may prove to be difficult. The pitch is only going to get more difficult as time goes on, so the visitors have a very tough job ahead of them today. It should be a fascinating three sessions to come.

Nathan Lyon to Tom Blundell. Off break length ball, middle stump on the front foot defending, to short leg for no runs, fielded by Labuschagne. A fantastic opening partnership from New Zealand in reply to Australia's 454. Tom Blundell and Tom Latham walk off unbeaten with New Zealand 63-0 and they had to battle hard against the new ball. Both took blows early on as the pitch began to play tricks but they saw that off and were then able to score a few runs of their own.A very good day of cricket seen by the spectators and there will be plenty more packing into the SCG tomorrow. See you then.

OUT! Caught. Matt Henry to Marnus Labuschagne. Slower ball half volley, down leg side on the front foot slog sweeping, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to long on, by Latham. Finally Labuschagne is out. He clears the front leg, looking to pump one over the rope, but miscues on this occasion. Hacked down the throat of long on, and taken with ease by Latham.Paine calls in the troops. Australia set New Zealand 415 to win. An almost impossible task given the state of the pitch and the bowling attack that the Kiwis have to face. All they can do is show some fight.

William Somerville to David Warner. Off break length ball, off stump on the front foot defending, back to bowler for no runs, fielded by Somerville. Australia pile on the runs, and are getting into that position to declare soon. David Warner batted with good tempo to get the run rate up, and he was supported well by Joe Burns and Marnus Labuschagne. Todd Astle provided the one positive for the Kiwis, bowling a good spell and removing Burns with a well-disguised googly. The lead is at 375 now, which is more than enough already, but they will probably bat for another hour after the interval, and make sure Warner gets to a hundred.

OUT! L.B.W. Todd Astle to Joe Burns. Googly length ball, off stump on the front foot defending, hit pad to. Astle gets the breakthrough! Wonderful delivery from leg spinner. He flings out the wrong'un, Burns doesn't pick it, and plays down the wrong line. Beaten on the inside edge, and it strikes the front pad in front of middle. The umpire didn't like it, but New Zealand did, so reviewed the decision. The line looked good, the only issue could be height, and HawkEye says it was smashing into middle and leg.

Welcome to Day 4 at the SCG. It is hard to see anything other than an Australia win from this position. The hosts currently lead by 243, and have all ten wickets in hand to build that up to as many as they feel necessary. All New Zealand can do today is make it as tricky as possible for their opponents, and cause an inevitable declaration to be made later than the home side want to. Will Australia be ultra-positive this morning to get back to bowling as soon as they can? Or will the Kiwis drags things out?

William Somerville to Joe Burns. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the back foot defending, to short leg for no runs, fielded by Latham. That will be stumps on day three. Australia in total control after bowling New Zealand out for 251. Nathan Lyon took another Test Match five wicket haul, and Pat Cummins chipped in with three wickets as well. The only positive with the bat for the Kiwis was that debutant, Glenn Phillips, got through to a maiden fifty. Too many got starts, and didn't convert, which meant the hosts got a huge lead after one innings each. Warner and Burns then played cautiously through to close, and will be back out tomorrow to add to that lead. Join us again in the morning to see that.

OUT! Caught. Nathan Lyon to BJ Watling. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the front foot sweeping, to backward square leg, by Cummins. Watling's resistance is over! He reaches out to sweep, cannot quite get over the ball to keep it down, and drags it into the hands of backward square leg. That's five for Lyon in this innings, and ten in the match. What a bowler. Matt Henry won't be coming out to bat because of his broken finger, so that will be that!Another completely dominating performance by Australia. They win by 279 runs, and secure a 3-0 whitewash. The standout performers in this match was Marnus Labuschagne's double century in the first innings, David Warner's century in the second, and Nathan Lyon's ten wicket haul. Once again they completely outplayed the Kiwis, and thoroughly deserved their victory. Not many positives to take for the visitors, they just weren't up to the standards to compete with the Aussies.

OUT! Bowled. Mitchell Starc to William Somerville. Reverse Swing-Out yorker, middle stump no foot movement defending, missed to. That is way too good. Somerville had no chance in keeping that out. Angled into the toes, a little bit of tail away, and at a quick pace too. The Kiwi tried his best to dig it out, but couldn't. The middle stump gets flattened.

OUT! Caught. Nathan Lyon to Todd Astle. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the front foot slog sweeping, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to mid wicket, by Pattinson. That's a beauty of a catch! Lyon has four. Astle attempts a swipe over cow corner, but mis-hits it. The ball goes up high, Pattinson runs round from mid on, and takes a diving two-handed catch inches from the turf. Superb. Australia are three away.

He's always been an attacking player, but what was CDG thinking here? Two men out in the deep, and it doesn't even look like he tried to genuinely clear them. Gently clipped out to deep mid wicket for a regulation catch. Will that spark a collapse?

OUT! Bowled. Pat Cummins to Ross Taylor. Seaming away length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, missed to. That is a corker from Pat Cummins. Cannot do much about that as a batsman, just far too good from the bowler. Angled in, a hint of movement away off the surface, and it's enough to beat the defence, and demolish the stumps. Unplayable delivery.
