<p>The Australian players also saluted South African umpire Marais Erasmus, who is standing in his 82nd and last test, by forming a guard of honor.</p>
<p>On the first day of the second Test in Christchurch on Friday, Josh Hazlewood spearheaded an explosive pace assault by the Australians, which saw New Zealand collapse to 162 all out at tea.</p>
<p>Mitchell Starc concluded with 3-59 and Hazlewood collected 5-31 as an unaltered Australia attempted to win the two-test series.</p>
<p>A 55-run partnership between Tim Southee (26), and Matt Henry (29), for the ninth wicket, lifted the New Zealand innings.</p>
<p>When captain Pat Cummins set New Zealand to bat on a green-tinged pitch, Australia anticipated an early breakthrough, but New Zealand openers Tom Latham and Will Young dug in.</p>
<p>New Zealand reached 47 in the opening ninety minutes thanks to their tenacious fight, but once Young was removed for 14, the innings collapsed.</p>
<p>With the last delivery before lunch, Latham went for 38 and Rachin Ravindra for 4, helping New Zealand reach 79 for three before losing five wickets for just 28 runs.</p>
<p>Their star batsman, Kane Williamson, who was met with a standing ovation upon reaching the crease for his historic 100th Test, could muster just 17 before Hazlewood trapped him in front.</p>
<p>Williamson began to move before the three red lights appeared, even though he realized it was a lost cause and asked for a review.</p>
<p>Hazlewood also had Latham and Daryl Mitchell (four), both of whom were caught by wicketkeeper Alex Carey, and Ravindra, who was caught at first slip by Usman Khawaja.</p>
<p>The striking Carey claimed five catches, including two from Glenn Phillips off Cameron Green and twenty from Tom Blundell off Green. Starc then sent out Scott Kuggeleijn’s leg before the wicket with his following ball.</p>
<p>Hazlewood shared in the action, too, catching Southee to give Cummins a wicket and dismissing Henry in the next over to end the innings.</p>
