    Australia's completed a 3-nil trouncing of New Zealand in their test cricket series after a 279-run final match victory in Sydney

    Australia's completed a 3-nil trouncing of New Zealand in their test cricket series after a 279-run final match victory in Sydney


    That completes a deja vu run of three 400-plus host totals, three New Zealand responses less than the follow-on target, and three finishes inside four days.



    Back home... Devon Conway's scored an unbeaten 101 runs off 49 balls to help Wellington beat Otago by 10 wickets chasing 169 in their Twenty20 Super Smash match in Dunedin.

    Wellington have a six-point buffer with two round robin games left.



    South Africa are 126 for two, chasing 438 for victory at stumps on the fourth day of the second test against England at Cape Town.

    The tourists declared on 391 for eight, with opener Dom Sibley unbeaten on 133 not out - his maiden test century.

    South Africa won the first game of the four-match series by 107 runs in Pretoria.



    To our Shane Warne baggy green cap watch...

    The Australian cricket great is auctioning off his heirloom, which has endured the sweat and toil of 145 tests, to raise money for the bushfire appeal.

    The latest bid for the taonga is 315,000 Australian dollars.

    The auction's open until Friday.



    American tennis player Coco Gauff has a blueprint to counter the gusty conditions served up by Auckland's ASB Classic.

    The 15-year-old's opened her account with a straight sets win in the singles draw.

    Gauff says she's practised in worse conditions in Florida.

    Serena Williams and Caroline Wozniaki have advanced to the second round of the doubles.



    The Adelaide 36ers have climbed back above the Breakers into fifth on the Australian basketball league ladder after a 102-96 win over the bottom-placed Illawarra Hawks.



    A list of earnings of every NRL player will help salary cap auditor Richard Gardham determine Latrell Mitchell's market value should he accept a cut-price contract from South Sydney.

    NRL salary cap laws state a player cannot be registered on a contract worth considerably less than his market value - and Gardham has final discretion to determine that.



    Three of the four semi-finalists have been found in the women's singles at the national bowls championships in Canterbury, with Jo Edwards the only past winner among them.

    She awaits the winner of the last quarter-final match-up between Serena Matthews and Jenny Stockford.

    Katelyn Inch and Wendy Jensen meet in the other semi-final.
