Hey is it possible to see highlights here in the UK?

Does this work?

Whether you're a fan or not of Matthew Wade you can't deny the bloke has stones. I saw coverage towards the close of play - Wagner hit Wade on at least 5/6 occasions. Didn't show any fear. Fronted up to go again.
I admit I'm a big fan of the 'show no pain' approach!  Respect to anyone that can pull it off at this level. 

NZ showing some real fight, and making a contest of it.
Not sure what Aus were thinking.  Didn't look like they were going for quick runs to put NZ in under lights, and now they have 2 sessions to bat out before (ideally) taking the new ball under lights.
It's going to be another hard day in the field at 40C+, but when the lights come on everything turns on it's head!

After refusing to play the short ones from Wagner and fall into the above mentioned leg trap, Wade takes the bait and falls into the exact same trap from de grundhomme - unbelievable!

Kiwis losing Ferguson seems way more costly than Australia losing Hazlewood. Despite the kiwis having an all rounder, their lack of decent spinner is a real issue.

In UK highlights come a bit late on YouTube.

Australia trash New Zealand by 296 runs. Starc ended up with 9 wickets in match. New Zealand's batting was awful for the majority of the match.

Someone like Latham who's overall record makes him look world class, but generally only gets runs against the weaker sides like Sri Lanka, Bangladesh and Zimbabwe.

Love this meme about Wade....

Although the outcome for New Zealand wasn't ideal I really enjoyed watching Wagner bowl. To send down a really aggressive spell of short pitched bowling lasting 9 overs in 40C is a fantastic effort, even though it's not quick on the TV displayed radar gun it seems to trouble most of the batsmen.
There's a lot of talk in the Australian media about how many great fast bowlers are available to fill Hazelwood's spot but I am slightly sceptical that they have the same control and ability to apply pressure.
The deck at the MCG will be a road as usual (particularly after recent events where they over watered the pitch in an attempt to make the game interesting) so I don't anticipate that it will be gripping viewing.

If both sides continue with the body line style bombardment there will still be a result. Not many batsmen like the ball fizzing past their nose.

Williamson sticks the Australians in at the MCG. Supposedly the grounds man has left 10.5mm of grass on the pitch.

Raval axed and Ferguson crocked replaced by Blundell and Boult
Pattinson replaced the hamstrung Hazlewood

Poor decision by Williamson to bowl first. The pitch was grassy but it wasn't anyway near as bowler friendly as the visitors assumed.

Also the Kiwis are handicapped by having a pathetic spinner in santner, he can't bowl for toffee.
