Pattinson picks up three wickets in an over to crush Kiwis

Brisbane

James Pattinson had a triple-wicket maiden to make it a debut to remember as Australia crushed New Zealand in the first Test at the Gabba. The 21-year-old younger brother of one-cap England paceman Darren Pattinson earned man-of-the-match honours for his match-winning spell with the ball.

He reduced New Zealand to 28 for five with an irresistible spell of pace bowling, setting up Australia for a nine-wicket win. New Zealand managed to scrape together 150 all out in their second innings, but Australia swiftly chased down the 19 runs they required for victory, for the loss of Phil Hughes.

Martin Guptill started the day by smashing the first ball from Peter Siddle for four, but that was the last of New Zealand's early forward progress.

Pattinson was thrown at the Stanley Street End and his second ball was a steep riser, zeroing in at Guptill's ribs, and he could only fend the ball to Usman Khawaja at short leg.

Kane Williamson was beaten by his first ball, but was not lucky enough to miss the next, instead edging a full outswinger low to Ricky Ponting at second slip.

Kiwi captain Ross Taylor was next, driving at his first ball and nicking to Brad Haddin to deliver Pattinson his third wicket of the over. "To get Ross Taylor first ball was a big wicket for me and something I'll cherish the rest of my life," Pattinson said.

Having dismissed Brendon McCullum late on day three, Pattinson had four wickets for one run from five overs.

Now Pattinson plans more of the same in the second Test in Hobart, which starts on Friday. "I've had some success down in Hobart and I'm feeling really good at the moment so hopefully it continues down there," he said.

New Zealand had been 121 for seven at lunch and managed another 29 to avoid an innings defeat. Chris Martin was the last man to fall, holing out to Mitchell Starc for his 31st career duck.

Nathan Lyon chipped in with three for 19 to clip the Black Caps tail, taking his match figures to seven for 85.

Australian opener Hughes was the only batsman to fall in the run chase, caught by Martin Guptill at gully off the bowling of Martin after he had been dropped by Brendon McCullum from the previous delivery.

Australia captain Michael Clarke said: "Nice start to the summer. I'm really happy, it was a great performance today, and James Pattinson was outstanding. Our whole performance throughout this Test was spot-on."

Kiwi captain Taylor added: "The top six have got to put their hands up. There were some soft dismissals out there. We need to step up in the next match and put up a lot better performance than we did today."
