Hesson is still fuming over the much-criticised decision by TV umpire Nigel Llong on Saturday's second day to turn down a Decision Review System (DRS) referral for a catch off Australia's Nathan Lyon.

Lyon survived after the "Hot Spot" thermal imaging revealed a mark on the back of his bat before he had scored. It was a major let-off for Australia, in trouble at 118 for eight and still trailing the Kiwis first innings total by 84 runs in a low-scoring Test.

Lyon was walking off the ground believing he was out before returning to continue batting and join in a record Australian trans-Tasman series 74-run ninth-wicket stand with Peter Nevill to deliver his side a vital 22-run first innings lead. Australia won the low-scoring Adelaide third Test by three wickets on the third day Sunday to clinch a 2-0 series victory.

"It was excellent, wasn't it? I think everyone at the ground saw what unfolded," Hesson told reporters.

"It's been spoken about a lot. We've certainly made a representation to the ICC and at present we're still awaiting an acceptable response."

Hesson said he had contacted match referee Roshan Mahanama but did not comment on what his side was specifically demanding from the ICC.

"There's been official representation from New Zealand Cricket, and from the team management as well," he said. "We're going through the proper channels and we're awaiting a response."
