Trent Boult provided a rare highlight at the Basin Reserve on a day of Australian dominance.

The Northern Districts fast bowler added to his collection of superb catches with a stunning caught and bowled effort to dismiss Mitchell Marsh for a duck.

The catch - one-handed and diving to his right - even seemed to stun Boult himself, who reacted to the dismissal with a shocked look on his face.

Boult's catch capped off a manic over, which saw him dismiss Usman Khawaja lbw for 140, before having a terrible lbw review turned down on Marsh's first ball.

A ball later, the great grab saw Marsh depart for a second-ball duck, and give New Zealand a sniff of hope after having gone wicket-less in the first session.

However, Adam Voges continued to plunder runs to increase Australia's massive lead and leave the Black Caps with a big task on their hands over the coming days
