New Zealand's 55-run victory to decide the Chappell-Hadlee series swung on a moment that looks like it will be debated for years to come.

In the 34th over Matt Henry delivered an attempted yorker to Mitchell Marsh who was on 41. Australia were 164 for six chasing 247. Marsh hit the ball into his boot and Henry caught it in his follow-through. He gave a half-hearted appeal and returned to his mark.

Then the crowd saw the big screen replay and erupted. New Zealand captain Brendon McCullum consulted umpire Ian Gould about a retrospective catch. Gould consulted with the television official and Marsh, after an interminable wait, was dismissed.

Today the cricket world is still discussing the wicket and the effect it had on the outcome of the match.
