Sri Lanka Vs New Zealand | 1st Test | Galle | Aug 14-18 | Match thread

Recommended Posts

It is very difficult to understand how good (or bad) the SL test team is.

 

They whitewashed Pak 2-0 in UAE couple of years ago, Also whitewashed SA 2-0 in SA few month ago. The only Asian team to achieve the feat.

However, they got whitewashed 0-3 at home by poms last year.  

Looks like they are goona get whitewashed to NZ too, at home.

double failure for kane in this match. although he has a classical technique, I feel that smith is more effective against spin because of his lightning footwork. however, kane is a top batsman and we will probably see him bounce back in the next match. watling has been superb in his usual understated manner.

 

SL is looking very very good to win the match. karunaratne has been a much improved player for SL. one of the better openers around, although that's not saying a whole lot these days.

Wow, SL has pulled off a 260+ run chase on a 5th day pitch. They are saying it didn't deteriorate as expected but still, you have to hand it to the Lankans for not succumbing to the pressure. Captain's innings by Karunaratne.

SL has shown world how to play in 4th innings. They did on SA tour as well which helped them to win that series.
