Australia took an unassailable 2-0 lead in the three-match Test series against New Zealand after beating the visitors by 247 runs at MCG on Sunday. Chasing a mammoth 447, Kane Williamson’s troops were bundled out for 240.
Tom Blundell was the pick among the batting line-up after he scored a gutsy 121 before getting out to Marnus Labuschagne.
