    Agreed, realistically not expecting NZ to fire a shot in those conditions without arguably 3 out of 4 of their best players in Vettori, McCullum & Ryder, have a feeling they won't win a game.

    I'm cautiously optimistic that a few guys can step up in those players' absence and we'll be competitive.

    I'm happy to see that the matches are at Dambulla. From memory of other games I've seen played there, the conditions are nice and bowler-friendly. And the scenery's spectacular as well.

    Vettori and McCullum are on paternity leave I think. Ryder's injured.

    Kyle Mills is vice-captain!

    Righto - I'm going to pick this now - NZ to make the final.

    Kane Williamson to shine with bat and ball. Taylor to make a few nice fifties. Guptill to be aggravatingly inconsistent. McKay and Mills to form a dangerous new ball pairing. Oram to get injured. Styris to annoy the best bats in the world with his nagging medium pace.

    Why hasn't Nath McCullum played any of the warm up games so far? Everyone else getting a run.
