Seddon Park - Hamiltron - Tosses from 1991

Wondered about toss details in Hamilton?  Test Match Cricket started there in 1991 versus Sri Lanka.  The the ensuing years there have been 23 tests and the 24th is about to unfold with the West Indies rolling the arm over tomorrow.

Below is a spreadsheet I have manufactured showing all the matches and toss details and match results.  Very interesting mixed results thoroughout.

23 matches where NZ have win 8 tosses, electing to bat twice and field 6 times.

All teams have selected to Field 17 times and Bat 6 times.  The results aren't clear cut on toss selections.

Those results for Us are 10 wins overall, 7 Draws and 6 losses.  Recent results have reversed record trends and our W/L ratio is getting healthy again.

The stats.
