hopefully were playing on the pitch at where the aus v WI game was played yesterday. Has a nice green tinge and the ball was moving about. It could suit the likes of Bond and Tuffey. Otherwise, this is a game I go into with hope but no confidence.
Here are the teams for todays game, note murali dropped! and Jimmy Franklin brought in. SL won toss and chose to field.
New Zealand team
JD Ryder, BB McCullum†, MJ Guptill, LRPL Taylor, GD Elliott, NT Broom, JEC Franklin, DL Vettori*, KD Mills, DR Tuffey, SE Bond
Sri Lanka team
TM Dilshan, ST Jayasuriya, KC Sangakkara*†, DPMD Jayawardene, SHT Kandamby, TT Samaraweera, AD Mathews, KMDN Kulasekara, T Thushara, SL Malinga, BAW Mendis
Daniel Vettori is an absolute legend!
