Australia on Sunday claimed a thrilling three-wicket victory inside three days over New Zealand at the Adelaide Oval in the first-ever day-night Test. Shaun Marsh took Australia to the cusp of victory before losing his wicket on 49 and the fighting Kiwis set up a tense finish under lights by also dismissing Peter Nevill to leave the home side seven wickets down. Peter Siddle hit the winning runs, much to the relief of the crowd, to clinch a 2-0 series win over the gallant Black Caps.
