    Sigh...just when it looked like New Zealand were starting to build some momentum our two best bowlers go and get injured. Sri Lanka to win comfortably.

    Yea a real shame that Mills got injured just after it looked like he was getting some rhythm back after a tough couple of months.

    Without Mills and Vettori we will find it hard to contain what is a pretty good batting line up. Wouldn't dream of saying this a few months ago but if we are to succeed in this game. It will be our batting that did the bu-si-ness.

    Expect some grass on the wicket.
    Diuretics are used to look good at TV shows

    I played for 20 years in the Lankan team, I did not have any problems as a Tamil - Muralidaran

    If that's the case then I expect Southee to rip through the Sri Lankans.

    SL will win comfortably IMO. Vettori and Mills will be a big miss for the Kiwis.

    Nah, there are some good players of pace there like Sanga, Mathews and Samaraweera. But NZ will find Kulasekara very difficult on such a track, and not to mention what Perera will do on such a track. SL will struggle on flat pitches, because batsmen don't know how to play on flat tracks as Indians to, and bowlers will get smashed on them. SL will be happy with a lively wicket because it is playing with their strengths.

    And I thought Samaraweera is a flat track bully

    We are also not sure because he has not played in many of seaming tracks. Plays well on dust bowls, and played some good knocks on seamin wickets as well. But still a unknown entity on seaming wickets. But has technique for sure.

    More likely to be a road to be honest.

    A bit of a dead rubber, this game, as both teams have already qualified for the QFs. So all that's riding on this game is Group order/momentum.

    I'm really torn about whether I want NZ to win this game or not. IMO, the least desirable team for NZ to face in the QFs is India. India look like they're going to finish 2nd in B, so 3rd is the position for NZ to avoid. If NZ lose this game they will probably end up 4th and avoid India, but if they win they could end up 3rd and face India. BUT, if NZ win and Pak beat Aus then NZ would top Group A and probably face the WIs.

    Maybe I should just stop worrying and enjoy the game.

    Scenario's

    NZ Lose - We'll finish 3rd or 4th
    Pak Lose (most likely, although you can't guarantee it) - Unless NZ get absolutely hammered, we'll finish 3rd because we've got a considerably better NRR than Pakistan does.
    Pak Wins: We come 4th

    NZ Win
    We'll finish 1st or 2nd depending on the outcome of the Aus Pak match.
