Black Caps celebrate test win, December 2011

On 12 December 2011 New Zealand completed a seven-run win over Australia in the second test at Bellerive Oval in Hobart. The win came after New Zealand had been solidly beaten in the first test at Brisbane and following a meagre first innings score of 150.  However, New Zealand dismissed Australia for 136 in their first innings and 233 in their second. The hero for New Zealand was the young fast bowler Doug Bracewell who took six wickets for 40 in Australia's second innings.
