Its hard to tell what Baz means by all of this. So I can't really comment. If he is saying NZ benefits by only having to face 10 overs per bowler then I agree. If he is saying they benefit from fielding restrictions then I am not so sure that helps our batting all that much. I usually see a decent number of fielders inside the circle in tests.His hypothesis (and it remains a work-in-progress) indicates New Zealand batsmen feel more comfortable or insulated being subject to restrictions or parameters on how they play the game. Those might include fielding restrictions for power plays and a cap of 10 overs per bowler. Limited overs therefore becomes manageable; unlimited overs remains a step too far.
Would like to have a longer explanation of Baz's views basically. He may have some good theories.
