OUT! Caught. Mitchell Starc to Mitchell Santner. Short, outside off stump moves in front hooking, top edge in the air uncontrolled to fine leg, by Behrendorff. Mitchell Starc ends with five. Hits the pitch hard, Santner shuffled across to use the pace and help it over fine leg for six, but he doesn't get enough distance behind the ball, and it is easily pouched on the boundary edge.A dominant win by Australia in the end. Some magnificent bowling, and even better catching on display throughout the day. That vital partnership between Usman Khawaja and Alex Carey proved to be the difference between the two sides. New Zealand were very poor with the bat, and should've been more attacking when they had Australia against the ropes in the first innings. However, full credit must go to the Aussies, and they now go three points clear at the top of the table. New Zealand remain in third place.Tomorrow's World Cup action is a tasty one. England against India. Plenty at stake for the hosts. It should not be missed.

SIX! Nathan Lyon to Mitchell Santner. Off break length ball, off stump on the front foot slog sweeping, well timed in the air under control over deep square leg for 6 runs. A lusty blow from Santner. He gets down on one knee, and heaves it over square leg for a maximum.

Can he repeat what Boult did earlier? Another superb delivery, and he is just far too good for tailenders. Ferguson defends down the wrong line, and gets his off pole pegged back. Wonderful bowling.

Warner nearly joins the spectacular catch party for this match. Nailed to him at mid on, and if he was a little taller, he probably would've snaffled it. Used all his height, and it nearly stuck, but just rolls out the fingertips to land safely. Superb try.

OUT! L.B.W. Mitchell Starc to Ish Sodhi. Length ball, outside off stump no foot movement defending, hit pad to. Starc gets his third. New Zealand are folding. The left armer is round the wicket, arrowing into the stumps, and Sodhi is stuck on the crease. The pad seemed to get in the way of the bat coming down, and it meant he couldn't keep it out. Struck in front, and no hesistation from the umpire. A review was used, and HawkEye says it was umpire's call on height. Good enough to stick with the decision.

Neesham wants to hoick this out the ground, but he has to fetch it from out wide, and is going against the spin as well. Not a great shot selection, and he pays the price. It goes straight up, and Lyon trots over to take the high catch himself. Game over now.

OUT! Caught. Mitchell Starc to Tom Latham. Off cutter half volley, off stump on the front foot flick, to short mid wicket, by Smith. There has been some outrageous catches today, and Smith joins the list with this one. Latham tamely clips it off the toes, and cannot keep it down. A subtle change of pace from Starc forcing the false shot. Smith is in close at short mid wicket, and flies to his right to take a one-handed beauty! A long way back for the Kiwis now.

OUT! Caught. Steven Smith to Colin de Grandhomme. Leg spinner half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to long off, by Khawaja. What a way to get out for a golden duck! Genius captaining from Aaron Finch. He tries some leg spin with Steve Smith, and it works first ball. Tossed up, tempted the all-rounder into the big shot, and he obliges. Unsurprisingly, he isn't used to the pitch yet, and mis-hits down the throat of long off. A bonus wicket for Australia.

A double drop? Lovely flight from Lyon. Williamson waves the bat away from the body, and gets a thin nick on it. The ball deflects off the gloves of Carey, and that puts Smith off at first slip. Not in the right position, and had to adjust quickly after it came off the keeper.

Shape back into Guptill, who tries a big booming drive, but is nowhere near connecting with the ball. It thuds into the front pad, and up goes the finger. The Kiwi opener walks straight off.

Trent Boult to Nathan Lyon. Yorker, outside off stump moves in front Scoop, Play and Miss (Leg Side) to wicketkeeper for no runs, shy attempt by Latham. What a brilliant spectacle those fifty overs were. The initial burst from Boult and Ferguson took out the Australian top order early, with some incredible catching helping the Kiwis along the way. The men in green and gold fought back, though, thanks to a gritty partnership between Khawaja and Carey. Momentum swung back to the Blackcaps at the end of the innings, with Boult nipping in with a hattrick. The game is interestingly poised, and can still go either way. It should be a tense chase to come.

OUT! L.B.W. Trent Boult to Jason Behrendorff. Yorker, to leg no foot movement working, hit pad to. Trent Boult you beauty! A World Cup hattick for the left arm seamer! Three yorkers have done the trick. This time is it Behrendorff who cannot keep it out. Looks to tuck it into the legside, but cannot make a connection, and it hits the boot right in front of middle and leg. A review is taken, but it's stone dead! Scenes at Lord's.

OUT! Bowled. Trent Boult to Mitchell Starc. Yorker, off stump on the front foot pushing, missed to. Two in two! Boult spears in another yorker, and it's too good to Starc first up. Tries to dig it out, but it gets through to peg back the middle stump. First class bowling, this.

OUT! Bowled. Trent Boult to Usman Khawaja. Yorker, middle stump moves in front flick, Play and Miss (Leg Side) to. Magnificent bowling at the death from Boult. Khawaja walks across his stumps to access the legside, but the seamer fires in a yorker at the base of leg stump. The ball slides past the inside edge of the bat, and sends the bails flying. An important innings from Khawaja comes to an end.

Carey looks to go over extra cover, but doesn't get the elevation required. A soft dismissal in the end, as he just chips it into the hands of the fielder on the edge of the ring.
