G’day. Declaration runs, the best kind of runs! Okay, not quite. But, in keeping with New Zealand’s discipline in the first innings with the ball, they clearly aren’t going to drop their bundle and let the hosts score quickly. Even without the injured Ferguson, they won’t give up hope of rolling Australia and chasing the runs – however unlikely.

As always, I’m looking forward to your company throughout the second half of this third day. Drop me a line, fire me a tweet.

15th over: Australia 30-0 (Warner 17, Burns 10) Wagner to Burns, who scores a couple off the pads. But a couple of balls later and Warner is nearly run out! I think Burns had forgotten that Santner is a left-hander. Burns drops the ball out towards point and runs immediately, calling yes, expecting that the fielder will have to run around the ball. But Santner grabs it in his left hand and throws all in the one movement, and Warner isn’t even in the frame as the ball passes the stump. A big chance missed.

A couple more decent bouncers from Wagner, and he gets no-balled for an overstep into the bargain.

That’s drinks, and that’s me for the day. I commend you into the care of Adam Collins.
