PITCH AND CONDITIONS

Warm temperatures are forecast at Galle during the test, but the threat of thunderstorms on each scheduled match day could mean possible stoppages.

New Zealand

  • New Zealand has a chance of securing the top spot in Test cricket when they take on Sri Lanka from Wednesday, exactly a month after their cruel World Cup defeat to England.
  • New Zealand, with 109 points in Test cricket, is ranked behind India on 113 points, but a 2-0 series win in Sri Lanka will see the Kiwis leapfrog the Asian heavyweights.
  • The Kiwis too are carrying plenty of spin options and are likely to play two of them. Mumbai-born left-arm spinner Ajaz Patel claimed five wickets in the warm-up game in Negombo and he is likely to be the second spinner to leggie Todd Astle.
  • As seam is New Zealand’s strength.

PROBABLE PLAYING XI OF NEW ZEALAND

Jeet Raval, Tom Latham, Kane Williamson (c), Ross Taylor, Henry Nicholls, BJ Watling (wk), Colin de Grandhomme, Neil Wagner, Mitchell Santner, Trent Boult, Tim Southee

Sri Lanka

  • But Sri Lanka has some tough choices and in all departments.
  • Fernando became an instant hero and his subsequent snubbing from the World Cup squad earned the wrath of former players
  • New Zealand will be tough to beat.
  • Former captain Dinesh Chandimal, who also missed out on touring South Africa, is back in the squad and the wicketkeeper’s slot will be a toss-up between him and NiroshanDickwella.

PROBABLE PLAYING XI OF SRI LANKA

Dimuth Karunaratne (c), Lahiru Thirimanne, Dinesh Chandimal, Kusal Mendis, Angelo Mathews, Kusal Perera, Dhananjaya de Silva, Niroshan Dickwella (wk), Suranga Lakmal, Vishwa Fernando, Lahiru Kumara/Lakshan Sandakan.
