Highly-rated New Zealand swing pair Tim Southee and Trent Boult will look to put the hosts' new-look batting lineup to the sword at the Gabba from Thursday as the tourists chase their first series win in Australia for 30 years.

Without a series triumph in Australia since the days of Richard Hadlee and Martin Crowe in 1985, the Black Caps clearly sense a weakness in Steve Smith's untested team following a raft of retirements.

The post-Ashes departures of former skipper Michael Clarke along with stalwarts Shane Watson, Chris Rogers, Brad Haddin and Ryan Harris have forced selectors to redraft Australia's batting, but there are questions over the replacements.
