Australia still hold the edge in the first Test against New Zealand in Perth despite the visitors picking up some late wickets towards the end of the third day’s play.

The hosts were reduced to 167-6 in their second innings after opting against enforcing the follow-on, but still hold an overall lead of a commanding 417.

Earlier, New Zealand had been bowled out for just 166 runs in their first innings after Australia had posted 416. It was Marnus Labuschagne who led the Aussie charge with the bat with the right-hander registering his third Test ton in a row.

A five-wicket haul for Mitchell Starc saw the Kiwis come undone against the pink-ball as they conceded a decisive 250-lead to Tim Paine’s men.

Can the visitors make a miraculous recovery in the first of the three Tests or will Australia march towards their seventh straight win in day-night Tests? Find out by following the ball-by-ball LIVE updates from Perth below.
