Vettori leads the collapse

11:19 am on 21 March 2010

The New Zealand cricket team's collapsed to be all out for 157 in the morning session of day three of the opening Test against Australia in Wellington.

The plan was to preserve wickets but captain Daniel Vettori set the tone, throwing his away in the first over, edging one to his Australian opposite Ricky Ponting in the slips to depart for 46.

Then Brendon McCullum and Martin Guptill were both caught in the same over for 24 and 30 respectively, before Daryl Tuffey was run out for a duck.

Tuffey would've been in but didn't ground his bat.

Brent Arnel was then caught for a golden duck on his first ball in Test cricket.

Tim Southee was the last to go, nicking one for five.

Chris Martin was not out for nought.

So the Black Caps trail by 302 runs and Australia have enforced the follow-on.
