At the end of the day 2 Australia cricket team scored 363 runs with 4 wickets down, Burns 170, Smith 138, Wagner 2-85 trail New Zealand 370 by seven runs. After New Zealand 370 runs with the very large help of BB McCullum, Australia 289-run partnership between Smith and Joe Burns took ahead again from New Zealand on day 2.
Australia played brilliant and against New Zealand, good bowling attack and approx survived from huge pressure very gently at Oval. McCullum’s plan changing strategies had not worked enough yesterday and now Australia again in a good position. After some wickets loss from Australia, New Zealand’s hope comes again for the next good day. New Zealand bowlers tried their best to get Smith’s wicket but he strikes best as much as he can.
