A crushing series win is in sights for Australia on the penultimate day of the Boxing Day Test against New Zealand in Melbourne.

The hosts have set the Kiwis a mammoth target of 488 to get in the final innings after a swift declaration at 168-4 on Day Four.

Tim Paine’s men already lead the three-match series by 1-0 after an emphatic 296-run win in the first Test held in Brisbane. New Zealand’s start in the second innings has not been a good one although opener Tom Blundell is resisting with a fighting half-century.

Can the visitors miraculously avert a huge defeat or will Australia seal the series before the final Test in Sydney? Find out by following the ball-by-ball LIVE updates from the Melbourne Cricket Ground below.
