To me it's no mystery that NZ struggle to get reverse swing once the ball gets old. Sure it requires skill on the bowlers part to get it reversing, but you've got to give yourself a chance. NZ as a whole (team) don't seem to look after the ball nearly as well as most other sides. I first noticed it in England last year when the Eng bowlers really worked on the old ball..totally legally as well. All fielders spent a long time shining it. Australia do it well also. New Zealand need to make much more of a concious effort to really work on one side of the old ball. I suppose then actually knowing how to reverse it would also help
