Australia vs New Zealand, 1st Test – Live Cricket Score

Hosts Australia and visitors New Zealand face off on the first day of the first of the three-match Test series at The Gabba in Brisbane on Thursday. New Zealand, who are currently ranked fifth in the ICC Test Rankings table, would love to come up with a stellar performance, continuing their ongoing good run in the format and win the Trans-Tsamnian rivalry as they square of against Australia in the first ever Trans-Tasman Trophy 2015-16. Australia, on the other hand too would be aiming for a fresh start to their Test campaign following a 2-1 loss to England in Ashes 2015.LIVE SCORECARD: Australia vs New Zealand 2015, 1st Test at Brisbane

Kane Williamson, one of the key batsmen in the current side, had miserably failed with the bat. He had managed only the scores of 19 and 0 and Black Caps will definitely want Williamson to perform better in the upcoming opening Test. Taylor, returning from a groin injury, and McCullum, off from the national duty for a long time, will be under pressure to perform.

On the other hand, Cricket Australia once again has chosen Josh Hazlewood ahead of Peter Siddle. Siddle, who impressed with 2 for 32 and 4 for 35 in Australia’s innings victory in the final Ashes Test at the Oval, was named 12th man with Hazlewood joining Mitchell Johnson and Mitchell Starc in a three-pronged pace attack. Meanwhile, the Australians have a huge task ahead. Steven Smith’s young side have to come out off the transition phase to outplay the more experienced and settled New Zealanders.
