    If the TAB takes bets on it I am tempted to place $1000 on NZ to beat Zimbabwe. Our team always seems to win against the weaker teams. With a few upsets against Bangladesh discounted.

    For whatever reason our players are world beaters in these games. We always take the opposition seriously I think while other teams rest players etc.

    I'm 99 percent sure there'd be a head to head market on that game. You'd only get, probably, $1.10 at most.

    SL's bowling is in good shape.

    Murali/Malinga have been bowling really well in the IPL.
    With Mendis and Mathews for support.
    Even the pie chucker Fernando has looked semi decent in the IPL, so he would probably be the 5th bowler.

    the batting on the other hand is a big worry.
    For as long as there is limited overs cricket - of ten, twenty or fifty overs - there will remain the Sri Lankan spinners' mid-innings choke

    Fernando's not in the squad. But yea same story as last time really. You'd fancy SL to win batting first and setting a moderate total. And they can bowl first and restrict sides to pretty low totals. But if a team strings a partnership together against them, or they put SL in and take wickets, then it's looking like curtains.

    Like last time SL squad carries some passengers. Jayasuriya, Kapugedara and Kulasekara do not deserve to be in the squad over Jeevantha Kulatunga, Farveez Maharoof and Vaas / Thushara.

    Biggest worry for SL is Dilshan has lost form. On the other hand Jayawardane, Sangakkara, Chandimal and Mathews all are in red hot form.

    Possible team against NZ,
    Dilshan, Jayawardane, Sangakkara, Chandimal, Mathews, Jayasinghe, Perera, Randiv, Murali, Malinga, Welagedara

    It would have looked much nicer if Maharoof was replacing Perera.

    SL might open bowling with Randiv, and see whether McCullum and Ryder can dominate quality off spin, together with Malinga.

    McCullum will probably struggle but I think Ryder quite likes spin bowling.
    Direbirds FTW!

    Yeah. Bats five in proper cricket for a reason.

    Only difference is he's rarely served with off spin of Murali's or Randiv's quality on slow wickets like these.
