A review of recently concluded Trans Tasmanian series. This series favored batsmen (albeit Adelaide day night Test) hence not surprisingly the new ball (from 0-20 overs and another 20 overs of second new ball which is taken any time after the 80th over)produced only 14 wickets(out of 93) for both teams, i.e 15.05% wickets fell to new cherry.
Both teams lost only 7 wickets each with New Zealand(13.46%) using it better than Australia (17.07%)

There is always temptation to compare against other series. Hence I quickly looked into post WC2015 Tests, and took only the first new ball(0-20 overs)into consideration – Not surprisingly the new ball has been effective picking 19.46% of total wickets that fell in 34 Tests played at end of Adelaide game(1st Dec, 2015)
Performance Indicators – Australia(bat/bowl)
Performance Indicators – New Zealand (Bat/Bowl)
