Need the local knowledge of Tyco to contribute to this!! Looks a better Test to trade than the one in Hobart. Pitch and weather conditions the key to a good draw lay for me! Will they leave it green as has been the way recently in NZ?

Easy to sound wise now, but this looked like a NZ win the whole way through. I was too greedy with my SL green but because I was hoping to cash it in for a bit more rather than because I saw them winning.

Anyway, 33 matched bets this test and think most of them were fairly reasonable. Assuming the almost inevitable NZ romp to a win, will have got me out of gaol for this weekend's largely fairly abortive gambling.

I'll make 200 on NZ, after some poor decisions throughout the Test. Made it all and then some, trading last night in a market concerned about rain today.

Yeh just never fancied them at sub 1.5 most of the game. Especially at this ground on a flat deck with weather always in the background.

I've got a paltry 100 quid on NZ and thousands on the other twoCry.
I'm pretty philosophical though as I didn't fancy either test this week.

Completely take the point and easy one to be playing around the margins trading rather than backing the winner. It's perfectly possible I've just been a bit lucky leaving a lot of red on the draw most of the game and not seeing a total downpour.

Yep, both obviously vanishingly unlikely but agree. Suppose Herath could come in and block for 30 overs but it's only really this pair that could save the game and they'd win it well before that. Unfortunately can't really see any way of deriving profit from that knowledge short of laying the draw at 18s when I'm already £1.8k red on it. Not appealing.

This might be a stupid question but how many overs does it take for a 'new ball' to be less effective? Often hear commentators say 'opening batsman' should look to overcome the period when new ball loses its shine or hardness.

Not a stupid question at all bit varies loads depending on atmospherics, nature of pitch and outfield and skill of bowlers. It sometimes swings more after the first few overs as one side is shinier but bounce and seam movement tend to decline gradually over time.
