Melbourne, Feb.17 (ANI): New Zealand pace spearhead Trent Boult has stated that his side should take a leaf out of Australia’s reverse swing abilities which was effectively executed in the opening Test match of the two-match series in Wellington.
Australia’s pace trio of Mitch Marsh, Josh Hazlewood and Jackson Bird were successfully able to reverse swing the ball to help the tourists claim an innings and 52-run win over New Zealand with a day to spare on Monday.
The 26-year-old left-arm bowler admitted that he was surprised to see Australia using reverse swing effectively and called on his side to learn from the tourists in case the wicket turns out to be flat, News.com.au reported.
The second match will start on Saturday in Christchurch, where both sides are fully expecting a green seamer. (ANI)
