Hobart: Phillip Hughes was caught Martin Guptill, bowled Chris Martin yet again after Australia's quicks made the most of a verdant green Hobart pitch to rout New Zealand for a meagre 150 on day one of the second Test.
The visitors' abject total was made to look a little rosier by the opening overs of Australia's reply, as Hughes pushed at Martin's angle and offered Guptill a catch for the third time in as many innings. Usman Khawaja also eluded two appeals for caught behind, while the debutant Trent Boult worried David Warner a little with his left-arm swing before the showers arrived at 1 for 12.
Club team-mates Peter Siddle and James Pattinson had shared eight wickets between them for Australia, Siddle plucking two of the first three wickets as he pitched up with intent. Pattinson's five maintained the striking impact he had made on debut in Brisbane, and will be on a hat-trick in the second innings. Mitchell Starc, though still changeable in his line and length, nipped out the other two.
