James Pattinson guides Australia to victory in first Test
Brisbane: Australia crushed New Zealand by nine wickets to win the first Test before tea on the fourth day at the Gabba on Sunday.
The Australians, led by debut paceman James Pattinson, dismissed the Black Caps for 150 in their second innings before David Warner hit the winning runs to give the home side a 1-0 lead in the two-Test series.
Pattinson was the destroyer, taking the first five wickets to fall in the New Zealand innings, including three wickets in four balls, to have the Kiwis tottering at 28 for five.
He finished with five for 27 while Dean Brownlie was New Zealand's top scorer with 42.
Australia remained unbeaten at the Gabba since 1988 and the Kiwis are still looking for their first win in Australia since 1985.
The second Test begins in Hobart on Friday.
Match scores: New Zealand 295 and 150; Australia 427 and 19 for 1.
