*Official* New Zealand tour of Sri Lanka 2019

The Hutt Rec

International Debutant
I guess the second new ball isn’t that much of a factor, unless we really clamp down on Sri Lanka’s scoring rate.

Brilliant batting tour from BJ.


International Debutant
So far so according to plan!

No Karunaratne at the top of the order is a definite bonus.


International Coach
Southee shouldn’t be too tired, has had 2 whole days with his feet up, and had a days rest between his first and second spells. No reason for the comms to give him a break for his speeds.

Would like Kane to have a couple more close in fielders for the spinners early.


International Coach
I said once today, but it deserves repeating. Ben Stokes: the 2nd best kiwi allrounder in the world.
