The duo dominated New Zealand’s bowling attack in the morning session of the second day in Wellington, establishing a 116-run partnership for the final wicket with relative ease. This feat surpassed the previous record of 114 runs set by Jason Gillespie and Glenn McGrath in Brisbane in 2004.

This partnership, Australia’s sixth of 100 runs or more for the 10th wicket in Test cricket, contributed significantly to the reigning ICC World Test Championship winners posting a substantial first innings score of 383, following a challenging opening day at Basin Reserve.

Green’s unbeaten knock of 174 was a key factor in Australia’s performance. The young all-rounder played a patient innings initially, scoring his second Test century in the final over of the day, before adopting a more aggressive approach alongside Hazlewood on Friday.
