Australia has completed an enormous 208-run win over New Zealand in the first Test at the Gabba.

The Kiwis were bowled all out for 295, chasing an improbable 504 runs for victory.

New Zealand resumed on day five at 3-143, with Brendon McCullum and Ross Taylor at the crease.

McCullum got off to a flying start, smashing a boundary to the start the day and was in ominous touch, however, the only problem was keeping partners down the other end.

Ross Taylor was the first to go for 26, to make it 4-165.

Neesham and McCullum reached 5-205, before the former was dismissed by a classic Johnson bouncer for three.

After Watling was dismissed for 14, the Black Caps were 6-242, before they lost 3-9 to be 9-249.

However, skipper Brendon McCullum (80 from 80 balls) was incorrectly given out, with no reviews left for the tourists. Umpire Nigel Llong gave McCullum out, believing he edged the ball onto his pad before being caught in the slips. However, replays later showed he had not edged the ball.

Craig and Boult put on 46 for the final wicket, before New Zealand was eventually dismissed for 295.

Lyon finished with figures of 3-63, while Marsh, Hazlewood and Starc took two wickets each and Johnson took one.

Dave Warner was named man of the match for his brilliant 163 in the first innings and 116 in the second innings.

The second Test starts on Friday in Perth.
