Australia vs New Zealand 1st Test 2008: Online Live Score

First of the two-test series between Australia and New Zealand is now going on in Brisbane now. After two days, it is now clear that bowlers are dominating the match as 26 wickets were fallen in the first two days of the test. The wicket of the Brisbane now seems to be a minefield. Winning the toss, New Zealand captain Daniel Vettori decided to bowl first. His bowlers justified his decision by getting Australia all out for 214. At that moment, it seemed New Zealand was in the driving seat, but the match took a quick turn when Australian pacers dismissed New Zealand for only 156 in the first innings. Australian batsmen are now struggling at 131 for 6 in the second innings. That means, Australia is now leading by 189 runs with 4 wickets at hand. So, you can see the match is now in an exciting position and there is not doubt, the Brisbane test will definitely see results.

Australia and New Zealand are two neighboring countries and they have a health rivalry in many sports including cricket and Rugby. In Rugby, both Australia and New Zealand are two arch rivals and whenever they play against each other, it becomes a high-profile match. The same thing goes in cricket too. Australia and New Zealand are the two cricket powers in the world. They have a good cricketing rivalry in the history and whenever they face each other, cricket fans gets excited. The same thing is happening in the ongoing Trans-Tasman Trophy 2008/09. Cricket fans of both sides are now exciting with this series.

Australia suffered a 2-0 test series defeat to India recently which aroused many questions about Australia’s superior form in the cricket world that they have been showing for about a decade. Following the retirements of some great players like Shane Warne and Glenn McGrath, Australia is now facing lots of problem to fill up the gaps created by these retirements. For New Zealand, the story is slightly different. They also lost some players like Stephen Fleming for retirement, while New Zealand also lost some excellent players like Shane Bond to Indian Cricket League (ICL). So, both sides are now going through a formation period in true sense and they are yet to come to terms with the players they lost over the last couple of years.

However, that did not matter to the cricket fans of the two teams as they are still attracted by the ongoing test series between Australia and New Zealand. I know that the match is shown live on TV in both the countries. However, it is also true that many of you can not manage your time to enjoy the match live on TV. Still, I would request you not to put your head down. For those passionate, but unfortunate cricket fans, here I am giving some names of online live score websites from where you can get the live score and updates of the match:
