Australia have won the toss and opted to bat first in the Test series opener against Trans-Tasman rivals New Zealand in Perth.

The hosts have won all six of their previous day-night Tests encounters and will be looking to make it seven in a row against a New Zealand side who are only playing their third pink-ball clash.

The visitors are without Trent Boult who failed to recover in time for the first of the three Tests. In his stead, pacer Lockie Ferguson has been handed his Test debut.

Can Australia continue their impressive home dominance or will the No2 ranked Kiwis live up to their billing? Find out by following the ball-by-ball updates from Perth below.
