The focal point of New Zealand's batting slump against Australia was a one-handed screamer by Steve Smith to dismiss captain Kane Williamson. 

However, the Australians should have had the prized wicket much earlier in the session, with the 29-year-old faintly edging a delivery from Pat Cummins through to the keeper when he was on 13. Despite Smith's insistence, captain Tim Paine chose not to review the delivery. It turned out to be a bad decision with ultra edge showing a spike when the ball went past Williamson's bat.

This caught Broad's attention, who had made headlines during England's successful 2015 Ashes campaign. He had refused to walk after what appeared to be a clear edge.
