Australia claimed three wickets in the final session on the fourth day of their second Test against New Zealand to leave the hosts struggling on 185 for five at stumps at Seddon Park, here.

The Kiwis were 89 for two at tea before some quick wickets exposed the tail. None of the New Zealand batting line-up managed to score more than 30 runs in an innings dominated by Mitchell Johnson collected three wickets after bowling the quickest he has in the series.

Brief score: Australia 231 and 511/8 vs New Zealand 264 and 185/5 in 62 overs (Sinclair 29, Guptill batting 29, McCullum batting 19; Johnson 3-39)
