New Zealand have won the annual Prime Minister’s XI tour match in Canberra yesterday and last night, and it marked a day of firsts for a number of reasons.

Firstly, it marked the first game at international level where the new pink Kookaburra ball was used under lights (Southern Stars spinner Erin Osborne is telling Jim Maxwell all about it, below left), and it also saw me undertake my first stints as a ball-by-ball commentator for ABC Grandstand (below right, with ACT Comets star batsman, Jono Dean, who was also on debut). All feedback has been positive thus far!
