Vettori, Brownlie lead Kiwi fight back
Daniel Vettori and Dean Brownlie restored New Zealand's first innings after a clatter of wickets on the rain-shortened opening day of the first Test against Australia at the Gabba yesterday.
When rain forced an early finish after tea, New Zealand were 176 for five after winning the toss. Former skipper Vettori was on 45 off 66 balls and Brownlie on 32 off 89 deliveries.
The pair put on an unbeaten 80 runs to rescue their team from a shaky opening.
