Mitchell Santner becomes New Zealand 's T20I trump card.

Day three was more milestone day than moving day for the Australians, who did the Kiwis over slowly, before they aim to go for the kill with the ball.

Despite a dramatic final session in which five wickets fell, including four to the short ball, there was much to celebrate for Australia, with David Warner passing Don Bradman's mark of 6996 runs and becoming the 12th Australian to join the 7000-club, and Marnus Labuschagne winning the race to 1000 runs for the year.

In particular, New Zealand has come to be seen as a bolthole of choice for Silicon Valley’s tech elite.

Speedster Mitchell Starc claimed his second five-for in as many games and his third in day/night Tests as the Black Caps melted in the heat against Australia's vaunted, though depleted, attack.

While the late strikes may have lifted morale in the Kiwis' dressing room, they have only highlighted how difficult it will be for their batsmen under lights.

If they are to save this game, they will likely have to bat through two evening sessions. Twelve of the 26 wickets to fall have come in the final period of the day.

The Kiwis showed that it's not just the new ball that is threatening at night. The ball was into its 43rd over when Australia lost four quick wickets in a dramatic finish to the day.

An Adelaide family including a 15-year-old girl are among 11 Australians unaccounted for in New Zealand after the White Island eruption, their relatives have confirmed

  An Adelaide family including a 15-year-old girl are among 11 Australians unaccounted for in New Zealand after the White Island eruption, their relatives have confirmed An Adelaide family including a 15-year-old girl are among 11 Australians unaccounted for in New Zealand after the White Island eruption, their relatives have confirmed .Gavin Dallow, his wife Lisa Dallow, and her daughter Zoe Hosking, 15, were on a two-week cruise.Speaking from his Adelaide home, Mr Dallow's father Brian said the trio had been on a daytrip to White Island."We do know they were on the island. That is definite," he said."At the moment, we think they might be in hospital. We're not sure. We really don't know anything.

With nearly 80% of Australians suffering some form of lower back pain , the Faculty of Pain Medicine of the Australian and New Zealand College of Anaesthetists have joined forces with Choosing Wisely Australia to warn New advice has also been issued on treating chronic non-cancer pain with opioids.

Joe Burns, Labuschagne, Steve Smith and Travis Head all fell to the short ball.

But there is a still a sense of the inevitable about this game with the main question being when Tim Paine's side will wrap up their fifth consecutive win at home – and third of the summer – rather than if.

Australia reached stumps on 6-167, a lead of 417, on the third day after New Zealand were skittled for a miserable 166.

The injury to Hazlewood was the sour point for the men in the baggy green, who made the world's No.2 side look decidedly second rate before the Black Caps late run.

Spinner Mitch Santner has been ineffective, providing more danger to umpire Aleem Dar than he has the Australian batsmen. Play was stopped for several minutes as Dar had his knee treated after a collision in the field with Santner. The official was cleared to continue adjudicating in his record-breaking game.

Three days into the series, the Black Caps face an almighty test of their character and resilience if they are to save this game. Even if they are to lose, which appears likely, they can still salvage something if they go down fighting.

Friends mourn three NZ volcano victims

  Friends mourn three NZ volcano victims The friends of three Australian victims of the deadly Whakaari volcano eruption have confirmed their deaths, lifting the toll to seven. When nine close friends embarked on a cruise earlier this month, they looked forward to "a wonderful holiday together" with no idea of the tragedy that lay ahead.On Wednesday night, three of them - Australians Jason Griffiths, Karla Mathews and Richard Elzer - were confirmed dead in a statement issued by the remaining members of the group.The trio had taken an excursion to New Zealand's White Island on the day of a deadly volcano eruption.

With one in five Australians living with pain , it is likely that someone you know is directly affected. Painaustralia is the national peak body working to improve the quality of life of people living with pain , their families and carers, and to minimise the social and economic burden of pain .

Despite its dangers, no other drug has ever rivaled its efficient pain -numbing qualities. But a study identified a compound that could do the trick - without the lethal side-effects. The study also found over-60s were more likely to be prescribed painkillers late than younger patients.

In the years to come, this summer will be looked upon as the one which marked Starc's second coming as a world force.

The speed demon could have responded to his Ashes snubbing in a more emphatic fashion and must be back among the first picked in the Test XI.

Pakistan could not find a way to negotiate one of Australia's finest left-arm quicks last month, and now it's the Kiwis' turn to feel his wrath as Starc's love-hate relationship with the pink ball continued.

The paceman is one of the strongest critics of day/night Tests even though he excels in the format.

In his seventh Test under lights, Starc has taken 38 wickets at 20, vastly superior to his overall numbers which, it must be said, are more than decent.

Starc prefers the traditional red ball but he will be taking home another pink globe to place in his trophy cabinet. He certainly had no problem raising the ball to celebrate his 13th bag of five or more wickets.

Starc's 5-52 has taken his summer haul to 19 wickets at a miserly 15, the sort of figures you expect to see from a junior playing well above their grade instead of a bowler plying their trade at the elite level.

'Turning point' as number of male smokers drops: WHO .
The number of male tobacco users is falling for the first time, the World Health Organization said Thursday, hailing a "major shift" in efforts to kick the world's deadly tobacco addiction. The number of women and girls who use tobacco products has been steadily declining for years. But tobacco use among males -- who account for the overwhelming majority of smokers -- has until now been expanding.
