    Unusual result in Aus v NZ test

    I just thought it was pretty strange that both teams scored over 400 in the first innings, yet the game didn't even reach the 5th day. Has this ever happened before?

    It seems to be a regular occurance when NZ are involved.

    An interesting stat was produced a couple of days ago on TV when Martin Crowe said NZ average (in their last 12 or so tests) a very respectable 450 in their 1st innings..yet average a poor 220 odd in their 2nd innings.

    If that stat doesn't tell you where NZ are going wrong in their test cricket at the moment..then I don't know lol.

    ....I'm not sure that in any of those games, both teams scored 400+ and the game didn't reach the last day...fair point though

    Didn't it happen in Brisbane just recently? New Zealand made a big score, Australia made a bigger score, New Zealand fell apart in the second dig. It might have just made the fifth day though, not sure.

    I noticed in the first innings set, there were about 7hundreds scored by bowlers and batsman combined. That must be unusual, 3 of the bowlers are world class (Mcgrath, Warne, Vettori, and errrrrr Martin)

    Nyet. McGrath and Gillespie both got their fifties early on the fourth day and New Zealand were bowled out in just over a session.

    Definitely a common occurence for NZ. Combine this with their inability to bowl fourth and defend a total and you have the reason for their demise in the last two years. It's as though they think the work is done after two completed innings.

    If NZ had a competitive score for the opposition, I would give NZ a good chance. Have not seen it recently though.

    Yea, NZ have the potential to push Australia - they just gotta try to play for the full 5 days at max. effort and not just give up after a few.

    No. New Zealand made less than 400 in the first innings.

    Vettori is not world class either.

    New Zealand are terrible in third-innings ATM.
    Not exactly like that's any secret.
    Started when they came about as close to losing an unloseable match as anyone ever has (vs Pak, First Test, 2003\04), and happened so often over here it was untrue.

    Hmm.
    You'd have to have a pretty loose definition of World-class (but then again we do, don't we - which is why I hate the phrase so much).
    Vettori is good, beyond doubt, he's better than just about all other fingerspinners, but he's not a bowler who you can back to run through batting-line-ups regularly.
    That, for me, is the best definition of World-class.
