The Chappell Headley Trophy has seen some amazing moments so far. The victory of NewZealand in the ODI series and the Australians sweeped away the first test match involved some great bowling from both teams. However some bad umpiring will be imporved in the next test match due to the critisism of Smith and McCullum.
Brandon McCullum is a great lover of fast pace attack. He knows how to use them properly for the better results. He went into the first test match against Australia, he went into the field with major fast bowlers intentionally to speed up the wicket taking process. A great possibility is that McCullum will also go into the second test match with the four leading pace bowlers.
The possibility of a spinner seems less likely for the New Zealand attack in this test match against Australia. The Kiwis are keen and eager to make the series levelled with 1-1. The toss will play an important part in this contest. The pitch report is a bit more favorable for the bowling side. Therefore if the McCullum wins the toss, he will be more likely to put Australians to bat. The Aussies will have to face Trent Boult, Tim Southee, Matt Henry and Neil Wagner in the first innings.
The team batting first is not going to have a good time around on this pitch as the skipper Brandon has already made this aware. If the Kiwis play a spinner, the highest prospects for spin department will be Mark Craig and Neil Wagner. But the pitch condition suggests that the all pace attack could lead to a sensational start for the Kiwi bowlers. The scene noticed at Basin Reserve can be repeated again. We all await for the all important toss on Friday.
