    Yeah it's a fine line, you want your players getting as much match practice as possible before the WC, but at the same time how much practice does the greatest ODI player of all time really need?

    Especially in August.

    He'll play the ODIs vs. Aust in India. That's good enough practice.

    He'll play ODIs against Aus and NZ and ODIs in SA. He is playing tests allround so that will be enough to stay match fit.

    Looks like we have the SL Board XI in a spot of bother - 57-5 after 18. Wickets evenly shared between Tuffey (2), Oram (1) and Southee (1), with one run out.

    Hmmm, and Sri Lanka weren't put in either. It seems to be a pretty decent batting line-up also.

    The lack of Williamson is a little scary though, I prey to god New Zealand aren't thinking of playing Ingram and Watling at the top with Guptill at three when this series kicks off next week, although that would hardly be surprising given it's New Zealand cricket where dealing with here. Hopefully with Kyle Mills also not playing they've just decided to give them both a rest as they were the best bowler and batsmen on that trip to Darwin.

    220 for the win then. Poor death bowling by Southee really, must of gone for at least 30 of his last three overs (all with the number 11 at the crease).

    He has quite a first-class record for a number nine, averages over 40 and strikes at over 100 in one day cricket.

    BJ Watling gone early, caught behind for four.

    The bowler who had Watling caught behind, Nuwan Pradeep, how fast is he? Sounds as though he has some real pace.

    Looks like we're cruising now.

    Styris is putting on a bit of a display - 57* from 44.
