Pitch Behaviour

     Bowling favour


     On March 10 at the Hagley Oval, Christchurch, Sri Lanka will face New Zealand in the 1st Test, Day 2 match of the Sri Lanka tour of New Zealand, 2023, on Friday. The match begins at 03:30 AM IST.

     A home 2-match Test series between New Zealand and Sri Lanka has begun with the first test in Christchurch. Three of the Black Caps' past six home Test matches have ended in defeat, including one against Bangladesh at the beginning of 2022.

     Despite his tardy arrival due to a bereavement, New Zealand anticipates record-breaking batsman Kane Williamson to be "ready to go" against Sri Lanka. Williamson has remained at home ahead of his grandmother's memorial service on Wednesday.

     Sri Lanka is ranked third in the WTC standings and thinks it has a chance to make it to the championship game. All they need to do is win this series 2-0 over New Zealand and pray that India loses or draws their last Test match against Australia.
