Mark Craig took two wickets in an over near the end of the first session on Saturday, including that of Australian skipper Steve Smith, as New Zealand seized the upper hand on day two of the first day-night Test.
After resuming at 54-2, the Australians struggled against the pink ball and some intense pressure from the New Zealanders and added 62 runs for the loss of six wickets in the session to reach tea at 116-8, still 86 runs behind.
Smith (53) held the innings together as Adam Voges (13), Shaun Marsh (2) and Mitchell Marsh (4) were dismissed cheaply. He as building a good partnership with Peter Nevill, reaching his half century from 108 balls with a boundary in Craig’s first over before the New Zealand offspinner struck the vital blow.
