Wright not concerned about Aussie record at the Gabba

6:41 am on 30 November 2011

On the eve of the first test, the New Zealand cricket coach John Wright isn't concerned about Australia's impressive record at the Gabba.

Australia haven't lost at the Brisbane ground since 1988 and have won 16 of their 22 tests since then.

However Wright was playing when New Zealand won there in 1985.

Wright says it's a good record but not one that really concerns them....

Wright feels his batsmen will be able to cope with the extra bounce, but believes too much can be written into that and he feels generally all the wickets in Australia are good for batting.
