On the day one of the Australia vs New Zealand 1st Test, Kiwi pacer Neil Wagner took a superb catch to dismiss dangerous David Warner. The left-handed batsman was once again looking in solid touch and was batting on 43 when Wagner in his followthrough took a one-handed blinder. It was a much-needed breakthrough for New Zealand.

Wagner, in his second spell, bowled an over-pitched delivery outside off as Warner toe-ended it back to the bowler. Wagner dived to his right side and stretched his hand to complete the stunning catch. Warner faced 74 balls in the first innings and smashed four fours in the process.
Earlier, Australia won the toss and opted to bat first. Colin de Grandhomme provided Kiwis with an early breakthrough by removing Joe Burns. Unfortunately for Australia, Burns, who did not opt for review, was adjudged lbw wrongly as HawkEye later confirmed that the ball was missing leg stump. At the fall of Burns’ wicket, Australia were 40 for one.
