Australia resumed after tea on 116-8 and after adding two runs to their total, spinner Nathan Lyon, batting at number 10, was reprieved by the decision review system when yet to score a run.
New Zealand appealed for a catch at slip after a Mitchell Santner ball ricocheted off Lyon's upper arm during an attempted sweep shot and then called for a review after it was turned down.
The 'hot spot' technology showed a mark on Lyon's bat but 'snicko' showed no audio evidence of a nick, leaving third umpire Nigel Llong to deliberate at considerable length.
Adding to the theater, Lyon began trudging off to the dressing room but paused halfway back as Llong watched replays and pondered various camera angles.
As Llong's deliberations dragged on, the crowd grew restless and jeered. The eventual not-out decision drew ironic cheers as well as boos.

Josh Hazlewood's dismissal
The decision cost New Zealand their second and last review and ushered in an astonishing momentum shift as Lyon and wicketkeeper Peter Nevill began to plunder the bowlers and Australia was able to add 108 runs from last two wickets.
