Cricket-New Zealand dismissed for 624, Taylor makes 290

PERTH, Nov 16 (Reuters) - New Zealand were dismissed for 624
in their first innings before lunch on the fourth day of the
second test against Australia on Monday when Ross Taylor was
dismissed on 290.
    Taylor's score was the highest by any visiting batsman in
Australia and the third highest by a New Zealand batsman in test
cricket. It helped New Zealand to a 65-run first innings lead. 
    The 31-year-old righthander faced 374 balls and hit 43 fours
in his mammoth knock before he was caught by substitute fielder
Jonny Wells at deep square leg off the bowling of Nathan Lyon. 
    Australia, who scored 559-9 declared in their first innings,
won the opening test in the three-match series by a thumping 208
runs in Brisbane last week.
