The pair shared an entertaining stand of 52 before Southee had Burns, in sight of batting through the innings, caught behind. That ended a stay of nearly eight hours in which he faced 297 balls and hit 16 fours and a six.
Robinson’s then had Conway playing on for 23 before, a ball after seeing an lbw reviewed in Williamson’s favour, he successfully challenged a not-out decision to have the star batsman leg before for just one.
