Century-maker Joe Burns and skipper Steve Smith carved into New Zealand's first innings target Sunday and swung momentum back in Australia's favour on day two of the second Test. Burns was not out 126 and Smith, who took a fearful knock to the head in the last over before tea, was on 79 at the end of the second session. With a flat wicket working in their favour, the pair added 174 runs to have Australia 241 for 2 at tea in reply to New Zealand's first innings 370 at Hagley Oval in Christchurch.
