Watling's resistance is over! He reaches out to sweep, cannot quite get over the ball to keep it down, and drags it into the hands of backward square leg. That's five for Lyon in this innings, and ten in the match. What a bowler. Matt Henry won't be coming out to bat because of his broken finger, so that will be that!Another completely dominating performance by Australia. They win by 279 runs, and secure a 3-0 whitewash. The standout performers in this match was Marnus Labuschagne's double century in the first innings, David Warner's century in the second, and Nathan Lyon's ten wicket haul. Once again they completely outplayed the Kiwis, and thoroughly deserved their victory. Not many positives to take for the visitors, they just weren't up to the standards to compete with the Aussies.

That is way too good. Somerville had no chance in keeping that out. Angled into the toes, a little bit of tail away, and at a quick pace too. The Kiwi tried his best to dig it out, but couldn't. The middle stump gets flattened.
