Australia took the lead and a telling advantage in the first Test courtesy of an opportunistic century by captain Michael Clarke and poor New Zealand fielding on day three at the Gabba.

The Black Caps rallied to take five wickets in the final session and bowl Australia out for 427.

But they were dealt a hammer blow when a fired-up James Pattinson removed Brendon McCullum in the last over before stumps to have the tourists 1 for 10 and 122 runs in arrears.

"I don't want to speak too soon, but a 120-odd run lead is a very good position if we bowl well tomorrow."
