So was this a deliberate Hesson and KW tactic to not give any hint to WI that they would declare? If so, is this an effective strategy given the sacrifice of runs so as to catch the openers off guard? Powell got out for zero so maybe it has some effective value - but is it worth the lost runs? If NZ hadn't got a wicket - the answer would be a resounding no. Personally, as a fan, I like the slogathon for both its run vs time value and its entertainment. Of course KW and Hess care lil' for entertainment tho and nor should they. But I do like the fact (if they are) that they're trying new tactics and a 443 run lead ought to be enough so its low risk.
