The mighty Aussie team is a test match king team. Only because they have not been any test cricket on the Kiwi soil does not mean they will have a downside in the first match. On the other hand, the Kiwis have played a lot of test.
Test match cricket on this ground before, the captain McCullum himself has played more than a dozen test matches in Basin. Who can forget his innings against India for 302 runs in the test series?
The captain McCullum observed that there is a swing in the wicket as well. But that is only likely to happen early morning in the initial overs. As the ball gets old and wicket gets dry, it will become feasible for batting side.
The New Zealand bowling line up is stronger than ever in 2016 for this test series. They do not lack the ability to play strokes as the team is packed with stroke makers like Guptil and McCullum himself.

Australian side is also a batting side, but still it will be interesting to see who wins the toss and what decision they make to start off the test match. The game is very much on. Smith is determined to reach the top of the table in the test ranking, therefore they will be ready to blast at the New Zealand players. The Smith said Kiwis is a very strong side.
