Thanks for following WB. Hope to see a typical hard and bouncy WACA track.
That should be it from me now and I will hit the bed again. Not sure when I will be back - going around for the India-South Africa series - but will be following the continuing live blog of this series at The Roar throughout. Perth up next from November 13.
Have a good day ahead!

Been bit of a hara-kiri towards the end. Brendon McCullum was the only batsman who showed any sort of resistance on the final day even as wickets kept tumbling around him. And then a poor decision got the better of him. Poor on a couple of counts - the ump. got it wrong while those before him also did in taking their reviews as a tactical option.
Not much to talk about for New Zealand apart from that McCullum innings and the Kane Williamson century and fifty.
Their bowling has a lot to do to change things around going into the second Test at the WACA where the track might not assist too much swing. And then there are fitness issues too, with Southee in doubt and Neesham ruled out too.
Mark Craig's 0/156 puts a bit of a doubt over his selection too. So all in all, an overhaul of the bowling department is a realistic option.
