    I'm very sceptical of this idea that there will be assistance from the pitch for the seam bowlers. Will believe it when I see it.

    Even if it does look a little green I'd still probably prefer we batted first. It would be a massive gamble to bowl first - we'd need probably 4-5 wickets in the first session to call it a success.

    DOG's CERTAINTIES:

    1. Jayawardene will score a century.
    2. Patel will concede 100 runs in the first innings.
    3. If NZ are on top, the rains will come
    4. If SL are on top, the rains will stay away.
    5. Boult will look awesome but will take less than 3 wickets for the match.
    6. Umpires will check for a no ball anytime DOUGEH takes a wicket.

    Boult will make us better than the sum of our parts.

    UDRS status for these matches? Presume it's low-profile and therefore nothing?

    Have a good feeling about Sri Lanka's bowling attack. The spinners in particular.
