Cameron Green’s historic 10th wicket partnership leads Australia to dominance against New Zealand

Cameron Green 10th Wicket Partnership, Cameron and Josh Hazlewood etched their names in the annals of cricket history with a record-breaking partnership for the 10th wicket against New Zealand. Both of them have not only broken records but also put Australia in a strong position on the second day in the Basin Reserve.

There was an extraordinary spectacle in the morning session in Wellington when Green and Hazlewood put on a 116-run partnership for the final wicket. Their strong partnership not only broke the previous record of 114 runs set by Jason Gillespie and Glenn McGrath in 2004, but also formed the highest partnership for the 10th wicket for Australia against New Zealand in Test cricket.

Cameron Green’s brilliant innings of 174 runs, second test century

This incredible feat was the sixth instance in Test cricket history that Australia made a partnership of 100 runs or more for the 10th wicket. The resilience and composure of this dynamic duo in the face of the New Zealand bowling attack played a vital role in helping the reigning ICC World Test Championship winners post a mammoth score of 383 in their first innings.

Young all-rounder Cameron Green performed brilliantly by playing an unbeaten inning of 174 runs in 275 balls. His innings displayed great patience and aggression, with Green completing his second Test century in the final over of the first day. The innings was particularly important for Green, who surpassed his previous best of 114 runs against India in Ahmedabad last year.

Green’s century, only the second of his Test career, proved to be a turning point as he went from a patient start to a more aggressive approach with the flexible Hazlewood. The Basin Reserve crowd was treated to a new cricket record as Green made it difficult for the Kiwis with his innings, frustrating the hosts and achieving the fourth-highest-ever 10th wicket haul by an Australian registered partnership.

Green-Hazlwood masterclass frustrates Kiwi bowlers

The partnership between Green and Hazlewood was not just about runs, it was a masterclass in intelligent batting. Both displayed impeccable cricket intelligence, knowing when to play safe and when to attack. Their strategic partnership did not live up to expectations and proved to be a cause of disappointment for the New Zealand bowlers.

Josh Hazlewood played a vital role in the partnership, hitting a boundary through mid-off to give Matt Henry five wickets. Despite Hazlewood’s departure, the crowd gave Cameron Green a warm farewell as he scored an unbeaten 174, his highest score in Tests and third highest in first-class cricket.

Green’s innings was praised as one of the better Test innings overseas by an Australian in recent times. The last wicket partnership of 116 runs not only set a new record against the Kiwis but also became the third highest partnership in New Zealand and fourth highest by an Australian pair, leaving a distinct mark on the cricket landscape.

The Australian team can be proud of the resilience and skill displayed by Green and Hazlewood, demonstrating the spirit of cricket beyond records and statistics.
