New Zealand took a first innings lead in the second Test against thanks largely to Tim Southee's six-wicket haul on day three. Speaking about his exploits, the right arm fast bowler credited the wind for the assist."I play a lot here, and it's always nice because it's one of the few grounds in the world where the wind actually assists a right-arm outswing bowler," Southee said. "It was nice to pick up wickets, but it's just good to contribute to the bowling performance. Bowling second on that pitch and taking a 55-run lead into the second innings just shows how well we did as a bowling group. "Matt Henry didn't get a wicket but I think he bowled exceptionally well throughout - most of it was into the wind. He did a great job and deserves a lot more credit than his figures show."
