Australia vs New Zealand 3rd Test Day 2 Scorecard 28 Nov 2015

Read Scorecard of Aus vs NZ 3rd Test Day 2 which was played in Adelaide stadium. This game does not look like a test match as it has been moving at a rapid pace with the third innings half way played and only fourth innings remains – and this all in only two days. Australia had ended the first day at 54-2 and began playing on the second day. Then a sudden loss of wickets took place due to some amazing piece of fielding from New Zealanders as Marsh was run out at only 2 runs by McCullum. Followed by his brother Mitchell Marsh, who could only make 4 runs before Bracewell sent him back to pavilion.

The only one that displayed patient at the crease was Steve Smith, who went on to make a half century. But he too could not withstand the spin of Craig and was plucked when he was at 53. A controversial scenario took place when Lyon edged behind onto his shoulder and then got caught at slip off Santner. But the field umpire was not willing to give the decision towards New Zealand’s way and thus denied the appeal he received from the fielders.

McCullum was sure that Lyon was to be dismissed and went on to use a review. However, the third umpire, Nigel Llong gave the decision Australia’s way as well while Lyon had walked half way towards the pavilion. There was clearly a spot in the hot spot at Lyon’s bat and the ball’s deviation towards his shoulder was seen. The umpire checked for lbw as well for Lyon’s shoulder but he did not notice that the Eagle Eye was of the previous delivery.

This incident cost New Zealand, if not a lot, 72 runs that Lyon and Nevill went on to pile up after the review. Nevill made brilliant 66 runs, consisting of eight fours. Lyon dismissed before Nevill at 34 runs, 30 runs he made after the opponents reviewed against him. Injured Starc was still left but the injury did not stop him from plundering 20 runs off a single over from Mark Craig, a total of 24 runs that he made before Nevill was dismissed and Australian innings were over.

New Zealand began their innings with 37 overs remaining in the day. At the stumps, they have lost five of their most important batsmen. Guptill, who had been having a poor series so far, was not able to survive at the crease for long and was dismissed at 10 runs, with Latham following him back towards the pavilion as the visitors lost two wickets at just thirty two runs. Both batsmen became the prey of Hazlewood.

Williamson fell cheaply as well on whose shoulders were the hopes resting. His wicket was an important wicket for the Aussies. He became the victim of Marsh, who perished McCullum soon, filling the absence of Starc. Taylor became the victim for Hazlewoof and was dismissed after he had made thirty two runs in thirty two balls.

New Zealand were left at 116 for 5 at stumps day 2. However, there are three days left and there are no hurries. New Zealand can still pile up runs and give a challenging target to the hosts as they lead them by 94 runs.
