Australia easing towards test series whitewash

5:25 pm on 11 December 2011

Australia are slowly tracking towards victory in the second cricket test against the Black Caps with the hosts 48 without loss chasing 241 to win late on day three in Hobart.

The New Zealanders were all out for 226 just before lunch.

The Black Caps bowlers will need to break through quickly if they're to have any chance of avoiding a 2-nil series defeat.
