Black Caps outside chance or no chance in Brisbane

12:53 pm on 23 November 2008

The New Zealand cricketers need to bat as long as they can today if they're to have any chance of winning the first Test against Australia at the Gabba.

One way or another it shouldn't go beyond the fourth day - Australia are likely to wrap it up in the morning session, unless the Black Caps somehow get the 184 runs they need to win.

They resume with 4 wickets in hand and Ross Taylor on 67.

Daniel Vettori's coming in as the new batsman.

The New Zealand bowler Chris Martin says they'll keep on fighting and have to match the efforts of Australia's best, Simon Katich - who made 131 not out on Saturday.
