Oh Sri Lanka again.

How great :D

I mean they were only here in

2014/15
2015/16 and now
2018/19

Bangladesh were here in

2016/17 and now
2018/19

No Pakistan this summer :(

Pakistani cricket team in New Zealand in 2014–15
Pakistani cricket team in New Zealand in 2015–16
Pakistani cricket team in New Zealand in 2016–17
Pakistani cricket team in New Zealand in 2017–18

Yes - I am serious - Pakistan toured NZ 4 years in a row...

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...

NZ will hammer SL. I feel Sorry for SL, but they have to bear it. The side is not good enough.

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.

Niroshan Dickwella recently promoted vice captain of Limited over games under MalinGa in NZ, hits sterling 80 not out.

Matthews 83, Karunaratne 83
Southee 6 for 68, Wagner 2 for 75

NZ so far 23 / 0 under lovely sun shine


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?

At least wickets are falling in this Test.
NZ 90/6 now.
Recovered from 64/6.

CdG proves to be a disappointment with the bat again.

Suranga Lakmal shows his class. I have seen him bowl a spell like this on a lively pitch in Dharamsala, India. Excepting Pujara, all other batsmen fell like nine pins.

Was surprised to see today that Lakmal has played 54 Tests!
I remember his name off and on, but if someone had asked me to guess, I'd probably have said 33 or so.

He has a bowling average of almost 40.
To be able to play 54 Tests and yet have a bowling average of 40 probably says a lot about lack of options in your country.

I think Ishant was also around 40 not so long ago but in the last few years has managed to bring it down to under 35.

Btw, the current MCG Test is Ishant's 90th Test.
Wow!
Of course, he started when he was not even 19.
To his credit, he has managed to stay largely injury-free in the last few years.
I remember him being injured earlier in his career.
You guys remember?

Boult's wickets.

Thisara Perera's knock must be seen in the context of the game.

NZ had got 319 off their 50 overs.

Thanks to Kusal Perera's 4 off 23 balls, and Chandimal's 3 off 12, Sri Lanka were in deep trouble at 128/7 after 27.

Thisara, who came in at 121/5, scored 140 of the 177 runs thereafter, in partnerships of 75, 51 and 44 for the last 3 wickets.

Pity this comes after the IPL auction - was he part of it?

Ferguson is a good bowler. Not surprised. He bowled with good pace against India 'A'.
