Australia and New Zealand face off on Day Two of the third Test at the Adelaide Oval in the novel day-night format with Australia on top. Australia’s bowlers were excellent with the pink ball in front a 47,000-strong crowd in attendance for the historic day-night Test. Mitchell Starc was again a dominant force but it comes as a major setback to Australia that he will no longer be available in this match owing to a stress fracture in his left foot. New Zealand were skittled for 202 with Tom Latham top-scoring with a solid fifty. LIVE CRICKET SCORECARD: Australia vs New Zealand, 3rd Test at Adelaide

Starc took three wickets as did Josh Hazlewood, while Peter Siddle and Nathan Lyon took two wickets each.

Australia had to bat in the final session after New Zealand were bowled out and unfortunately for them it was under lights at proper night time, the period which according to some produces most amount of support for the bowlers. Australia lost both their openers in heading to stumps with Trent Boult dismissing David Warner while Joe Burns fell to Doug Bracewell. Australia reached 54 for 2 at stumps still trailing by 148 runs, but with Steven Smith looking well set at the crease. New Zealand will be hoping to strike with great frequency on Day Two in order to restore balance.
