Scorecard

 

Talking Points

An X-ray confirmed Matt Henry has broken his left thumb following a blow on day one – he will bowl but will probably not bat in the rest of the Test

Marnus Labuschagne completed his first record-breaking Test double century for Australia

Matthew Wade was floored by Tom Latham fielding at short leg – are fielders fielding too close to the batsmen and should there be measured distance of safety?

New Zealand manage to survive the final session without losing a wicket- the first time in the series that they have not lost a wicket in a session
