Boult got two lbw decisions on either side of David
Warner s dismissal for 35, removing Joe Burns (11) with
the total at 34 and ending Smith s scratchy innings at
14 as Australia slipped to 66-3.
Smith never appeared settled, his edge off Boult just
failed to carry to wicketkeeper BJ Watling on one, he
was dropped at mid-wicket by Mitch Santner on two,
and he squeezed an inside edge between his legs to get
a boundary off Boult on eight.
He challenged the lbw decision, but the TV umpire
confirmed the dismissal after the ball tracker showed
it hitting the bails. McCullum s New Zealanders didn t
need another contentious review, given the controversy
over Nathan Lyon s not-out decision on Saturday before
he played a big role in Australia s first-innings comeback
and swung the momentum of the game.
The Australians got on top again with Adam Voges
(28) sharing a 49-run stand with Shaun Marsh before
he was out in the second over after the tea break.
The Marsh brothers combined to add 46 before the
younger Mitch was out to Santner, skying a catch to
Shaun Marsh was batting to save his Test career after
a terrible run out in the first innings in his latest recall
to the national XI.
He faced 117 balls in 2½ hours and got Australia
within 11 runs of victory until edging Boult to slip. It
didn t end there.
Peter Nevill, the highest scorer in the match with 66
in the first innings, was out for 10 when he tried to
drive Boult and got an inside edge that Watling caught
to complete a spectacular, diving dismissal, leaving Aus-
tralia requiring two for victory. Starc, unable to bowl
because of a foot injury, hobbled out to join Siddle, who
edged his way to the win with an unbeaten 9.

ADELAIDE --- Australia won the first ever
day-night cricket Test by three wickets
against New Zealand yesterday, with tail-
enders Peter Siddle and Mitch Starc ushering
the hosts to victory in a dramatic finish under
lights that will almost certainly ensure the
format isn t consigned to history as a one-
The match was over inside three days, which
hasn t happened in an Adelaide Oval Test since
1951 and which highlighted the differences of
using the pink ball and playing under lights
in the longest form of the game.
Ball dominated bat, particularly in the twi-
light sessions. The first 25 wickets tumbled in
two days before New Zealand resumed Sunday
at 116-5, an overall lead of 94.
Josh Hazlewood, leading the attack because
the injured Starc wasn t allowed to bowl,
returned a career-best 6-70 and Mitch Marsh
took 3-59 to bowl the New Zealanders out for
208 in the first session and set up the target.
Trent Boult responded with figures of 5-60
for New Zealand, including Shaun Marsh for
49 just as the home team appeared to be coast-
ing, to ensure a tense two hours before Australia
clinched the three-match series 2-0.
"It was obviously a very tight finish --- great
for the game of cricket," Australia captain Steve
Smith said. "It was an exceptional event. It
certainly brought the bowlers into the game
--- I think they all enjoyed bowling under the
New Zealand skipper Brendon McCullum
said the day-night concept was the future of
"In terms of an experiment, I think it went
off as well as it could do," he said. "With
