Australia captain Steve Smith had little hesitation in putting New Zealand in to bat after winning the toss in the first Test that started last Friday in Wellington.
The hosts essentially lost the match in the first hour as Australia exploited the seamer-friendly conditions and crashed to 51 for five inside 12 overs. They were eventually skittled out for 183.
The pitch, however, browned off quickly and while Australia went through some tough periods, the ball did little off the wicket from the second day as they built up a massive 562 with Adam Voges scoring a double century.
Australia won the match by an innings and 52 runs yesterday.
"I would have liked this to have been much greener than it was. It only seamed for two hours and that meant that both sides weren't able to be exposed in those conditions," Hesson told reporters in Wellington today.
"It's a bit different when it seams for two hours, it makes the toss a little bit more important.
"I think if you're good enough to make the most of it you can be exposed. Ideally you'd like both sides to have a bit of a crack at it when it does seam."
