In the ongoing Test at Hagley Oval in Christchurch, Australia and New Zealand locked horns for the second time in the series, delivering moments that will be remembered for a long time.

Australia, deciding to bowl first on day 1, dominated the early proceedings and bundled out New Zealand for a paltry 162, thanks to Josh Hazlewood's exceptional five-wicket haul. The Australian bowlers' disciplined attack left the Kiwis struggling to build a substantial total.

The spotlight, however, shifted towards New Zealand's Matt Henry, who continued to shine in the Test after picking three wickets on day 1 and adding four more on day 2. He mesmerised everyone by taking seven Australian wickets, including the crucial dismissal of all-rounder Mitchell Marsh for a duck.

The incident became a turning point, showcasing Henry's precision and the tactical acumen of New Zealand's captain, Tim Southee.

During the 46th over in the innings, Marsh faced a delivery from Henry that came in sharply after pitching outside off, missing the bat and striking the pads. This led to a confident appeal for LBW. Initially, the umpire, Nitin Menon, ruled it not out.

However, in a dramatic twist, Southee decided to review the decision at the very last moment. The replays and ball-tracking confirmed that the ball was indeed on target to hit the top of the leg stump, showing three reds and overturning the on-field decision, marking a significant blow to Australia's batting lineup.

Australia ended their first innings with a score of 256/10, managing to take a lead of 94 runs. In their second innings, New Zealand made a cautious start, reaching 73/1 in 31 overs, still trailing by 21 runs.
