Heaps.

That Sri Lankan game is the 9th ranked NZC team behind the test team, the A team, and the 6 FC sides playing today...

No Rudderfid nor Worker...

It is Greg hay or Will Young...

Will Young is the favourite - but Greg Hay just smacked a dbl ton and was top run scorer last season as well..

But Latham will get another chance to feast on Asian club (Bang and SL) attacks at home...

It is a very bad season for NZ. Bangladesh and Sri Lanka in NZ is about as bad as it gets.

All it does is let ordinary players boost their stats and cement their positions, when in a years time, NZ is facing Aus in Aus, Eng and Ind here.

NZ test team vs SL


Ajaz Patel was New Zealand's match-winner in the first Test against Pakistan in UAE

William Somerville's impressive seven-wicket return on his Test debut in Abu Dhabi was not enough to merit him a place in the New Zealand squad for the first Test of the home season against Sri Lanka. Left-arm spinner Ajaz Patel was picked as the lone spinner in the 13-man squad with legspinner Ish Sodhi also deemed surplus to requirements on the traditionally seaming Basin Reserve pitch in Wellington.

Patel, 30, made his Test debut ahead of Somerville in the first Test of the series against Pakistan, picking match figures of 7 for 123 in New Zealand's four-run win. His call-up for the sub-continental challenge came after a sustained period of excellence in the domestic circuit where he finished as the leading wicket-taker in each of the last three seasons. Patel went on to play each of the three Tests in the campaign and was joined by Somerville for the series-clinching win in the final Test.

"Ajaz certainly grabbed his opportunity on the UAE tour and he's a proven performer in New Zealand conditions," said selector Gavin Larsen. "Will Somerville was an obvious stand-out on debut in the Abu Dhabi decider and it's great to know we've got quality spin bowlers who can create competition for places.

Central Stags batsman Will Young was also included as a batting backup after impressing in the ongoing 'A' series against India. Young scored a century in Sunday's 50-over clash in Mount Maunganui and replaces keeper-batsman Tom Blundell, who will return to Plunkett Shield action starting later this week.

"It's an exciting time for Will Young who has been pushing for higher honours for a while now. He scored hundreds against Pakistan A and India A in recent months and fully deserves his call-up."

Squad for 1st Test: Kane Williamson (c), Tom Latham, Jeet Raval, Ross Taylor, Henry Nicholls, BJ Watling, Colin de Grandhomme, Tim Southee, Neil Wagner, Ajaz Patel, Trent Boult, Matt Henry, Will Young

Southee relishing return to familiar setting

December 13 2018

Southee is 9 behind Chris Martin's tally of 233 Test wickets

It's been a hard grind for New Zealand after months of cricketing obscurity. But a sweet, series-clinching win against Pakistan in the UAE sets them up nicely for the five-Test home season (against Sri Lanka and Bangladesh) ahead. After weeks of toiling on barren surfaces, the sight of an emerald green surface at the Basin Reserve in Wellington two days out from the series opener against Sri Lanka left Tim Southee and Co. in good spirits.

Southee, Trent Boult and Neil Wagner didn't play together in the Tests against Pakistan as New Zealand played two frontline spinners, but the fast-bowling troika is set to be reunited with a mini race developing among the "good mates."

Southee, 224 wickets from 61 Tests, is marginally ahead of Boult, 222 wickets from 57 Tests, as the duo move towards Chris Martin's tally of 233 Test wickets. That'll put the two behind only Sir Richard Hadlee (431 wickets) and Daniel Vettori (362 wickets). The pair is expected to leave Martin behind by the end of the two Tests against the under-fire Sri Lankan line-up, if the early evidence of form and conditions are anything to go by.

"It's nice to be back in conditions we're used to," Southee told reporters on Thursday (December 13). "We've come from a place that wasn't easy for pace bowlers, so there was a bit of a spring in the step of the fast bowlers anyway.

"It's [the series win against Pakistan] something the group is very proud of. A lot of good sides have gone to the UAE and haven't been able to tip Pakistan up. We know we can't let that overhang into our home summer and start afresh in different conditions."

Southee, however, was wise to not draw any conclusions on pitch behaviour based on the covering of grass. Kumar Sangakkara scored a double hundred during Sri Lanka's last visit here, as did Shakib Al Hasan two seasons ago. Incidentally, all three of Boult, Southee and Wagner average a few points higher in Wellington than their career numbers. Southee's bowling average, especially, goes up to 46 at the ground compared with 31 overall.

"It's nice to see some grass on the wicket but I remember a couple of years ago Bangladesh ended up scoring 500-and-something in the first innings," Southee said. "It's also a strength of this side not to get carried away with conditions. We don't know what it's going to play like until we get out there. You can get in and it can be a batting paradise as well."

The first Test of the series starts on December 15 with the Boxing Day Test to be played at the Hagley Oval in Christchurch.

Im around - but the NZC home summer is dire...

All this summer does is let the like of Latham secure their spots so they may be in the team to suck against the stronger seam teams next year...

Latham was in danger of losing his spot - has now cemented it for 2019 at least. :-)

Rahane does the same.

Does just about enough to retain his place in the side.

That's the problem... then he fails in Aus, fails vs Eng and maybe against Bumrah's BCCI - while While Will Young just carries the drinks or Raval gets made into a scapegoat...

Happy to see this terrific fightback from Sri Lanka.
Even if they lose (which they 99% will), at least they're showing fight.

Pity rain stopped play, otherwise we were possibly looking at twin double-hundreds. :-)

Anyway, very well played, Mendis & Mathews.
Not much for the bowlers in the wicket, but your team still needed to bat out over 100 overs - which the two of you managed by yourselves, so all credit to you.

Looking forward to the Boxing Day Test now.

I always thought Boxing Day Tests were an Aussie tradition.
Is it big in NZ too?

On Dec 26-30 this year (2018)

It's took only 21 innings for k.Mendis vs 24 by Root

Anyway cricket Fartinities remembered great epic stands which last two days day 4 (20 for 3 to 259 for 3) & day 5 (259 for 3 to 287 for 3) 274* unbeaten stands (rain-draw)

http://www.espncricinfo.com/series/1881 ... in-nz-2918

26/12 - 03:30 AM IST
2nd Test, Sri Lanka tour of New Zealand at Christchurch,

Big picture

Sri Lanka fight at the strangest times. They had several opportunities to dig themselves out of holes against England, at home, on turning tracks specifically prepared to suit them, and yet, what defiances they could muster in that series were insufficient to prevent a whitewash. Somehow, in New Zealand - a country where this group of players had only previously tasted defeat - two batsmen mounted a daylong resistance.

Vitally, in the first away match of six consecutive Tests in the southern hemisphere, Sri Lanka have proved to themselves that their batsmen are not all hopelessly out of their depth. That at least in batting-friendly conditions, they are capable of quelling high-quality seam attacks - the likes of which they will now continuously face until March. Importantly, it wasn't just Kusal Mendis and Angelo Mathews who succeeded. Opener Dimuth Karunaratne and wicketkeeper-batsman Niroshan Dickwella also made runs on day one, when conditions were at their toughest

New Zealand, who have now missed the chance to go to second on the rankings (because only a whitewash against Sri Lanka would have got them there), will perhaps not fret over the Wellington result. Unlike the Basin Reserve surface, the one at Hagley Oval tends to remain receptive to seam bowling right until the final day, particularly if it is very green to begin with, as seems to be the case. Where the Basin track got slower each day, the one at Hagley tends to hold its pace throughout the Test as well. If Sri Lanka had to step up their batting to deal with Tim Southee, Trent Boult and Neil Wagner in Wellington, they will have to climb another rung to face them down in Christchurch.

On top of this, New Zealand's powerful batting order. Jeet Raval generally sees through the worst of the new ball, even if he doesn't quite move on to a substantial score. Kane Williamson seems to begin innings like he's already batting on a hundred, while Tom Latham and Henry Nicholls are also in excellent form. Ross Taylor and Colin de Grandhomme are capable of momentum-shifting knocks, and BJ Watling is often a reliable producer from the lower order. All of which begs the question - have New Zealand ever had it this good?

Sri Lanka have already sprung one surprise in the series. Although they have arrived in Christchurch full of confidence, they will probably need to spring another one in the Boxing Day Test.

Form guide
Sri Lanka DLLLW (completed matches, most recent first)
New Zealand DWLWD

In the spotlight
Neil Wagner has 154 wickets and has bowled in 73 Test innings, but has never collected poorer figures than he did in the second innings at Wellington, when he went wicketless for 100. Beyond the lack of success, Wagner might also be irked at his economy rate of 4.34, in an innings where no other bowler gave away more than 2.5 an over. His short bowling was defanged by a pace-less track, for sure, but there was also the matter of Mendis and Mathews playing him exceedingly well - New Zealand coach Gary Stead later remarked that theirs was "some of the best batting" he had seen against Wagner. For so long "Wagnerline" has worked wonders at home, uprooting stubborn batsmen and sparking collapses after the new-ball swing has disappeared. With Matt Henry forever on the heels of the incumbent seamers, Wagner will want to prove that Wellington was an anomaly.

The Sri Lanka attack, meanwhile, is ostensibly led by the senior Suranga Lakmal, but it is 21-year-old Lahiru Kumara who brings the real energy. He was comfortably the quickest bowler of the first Test, and created more chances on a flat surface than any of his colleagues, claiming 4 for 127 in New Zealand's only innings. He also had an excellent tour of West Indies earlier this year, where he took 17 wickets at less than 20 apiece, so if the Hagley Oval pitch is as seam-friendly as expected, Kumara may have another chance to establish himself as Sri Lanka's primary overseas wicket-taker.


There is an outside chance Matt Henry will play, but New Zealand will probably stick to the same XI that played in Wellington.

New Zealand (probable): 1 Jeet Raval, 2 Tom Latham, 3 Kane Williamson (capt), 4 Ross Taylor, 5 Henry Nicholls, 6 BJ Watling (wk), 7 Colin de Grandhomme, 8 Tim Southee, 9 Neil Wagner, 10 Ajaz Patel, 11 Trent Boult

As Kasun Rajitha went wicketless in Wellington, Sri Lanka may be tempted to swap in Dushmantha Chameera, who averages 24.00 in New Zealand, but has not played a Test since late 2016, largely due to injury. Otherwise, it will probably be the same side.

Sri Lanka (possible): 1 Dimuth Karunaratne, 2 Danushka Gunathilaka , 3 Dhananjaya de Silva, 4 Kusal Mendis, 5 Dinesh Chandimal (capt), 6 Angelo Mathews, 7 Niroshan Dickwella (wk), 8 Dilruwan Perera, 9 Suranga Lakmal, 10 Dushmantha Chameera, 11 Lahiru Kumara

Pitch and conditions
A green, seaming track is expected, but showers may interrupt play on the first two days. Clouds overhead may mean that the ball swings more. Sri Lanka will be especially unimpressed to note that the temperature is unlikely to make it out of the teens until days three and four, with wind-chill likely to make it seem even colder.

Stats and trivia
Neil Wagner's bowling average against Sri Lanka is 38.92 and his economy rate is 3.78 - both his worst against any team he has played. Wagner has only bowled to Sri Lanka across four Tests in New Zealand.

Lahiru Kumara's bowling average this year is 26.66, despite having played two of his five Tests on flat pitches, in Chittagong and Wellington.

With one Test to go, two Sri Lanka batsmen are among the top five run-scorers for the year. Kusal Mendis is third, with 941 runs at 47.05 (he has a chance of being the second after Virat Kohli to make 1000 runs in the year). Dimuth Karunaratne is fifth, with 736 runs at 52.57.

Among batsmen with more than 400 runs this year, Kane Williamson (66.77) and Henry Nicholls (61.87) comfortably have the best averages.

Quotes
"We weren't surprised by the way Sri Lanka played in Wellington. They are a very good side. They showed a lot of character and grit in that second innings. We're preparing for them to be exactly the same in this Test."

New Zealand batting coach Craig McMillan

"We've got some confidence. Angelo is batting really well and knows how to play in these conditions. Kusal has got runs as well. I'm sure Dimuth and the others will chip in as well."
