    *Official* Double Match Day - NZ v Sri Lanka (27th Sept)

    To make it easier for discussion, as suggested by Pratters I've created this thread for discussion on today's NZ v Sri Lanka match.

    Go New Zealand!

    Don't have a lot of hope, bar our seamers knocking the top off Sri Lanka's batting or an individual performance from someone like Guptill. Yes Guptill - Ryder is out of form and McCullum and Taylor have too much responsibility making them fearful. Surely Guptill is due an innings where all his edges and lofted shots land just out of reach of a fielder?

    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!

    Sangakkara wins toss and chooses to bowl.

    Looks like Franklin is playing for NZ and Murali misses out for Sri Lanka.

    Beat me to it.

    A green tinge would be good providing we post something competitive first.

    Very pleased with our team.
    Very worried about having lost the toss.

    awta

    A new ball in seaming conditions against our top order first up is a good reason to be nervous.

    Very worried too.

    If we are not more than 3 wickets down after 15 overs, I would consider that a success.

    Though in all honesty if we bat well we should win this. Our seam attack should be able to do well here, really need around 250 runs.

    Yes, our bowling is definitely a strength in general and in these conditions. That 'if we bat well' is a major 'if' though. Agree with DoG's definition of 'success'.
