SL vs NL 1st Test Day 5 Highlights – 19 December 2018
1st Test, Sri Lanka tour of New Zealand 2018, Watch SL v NZ Cricket highlights today – First test day one from Basin Reserve, Wellington (New Zealand) Saturday 15th December 2018. “Looks a good wicket and usually ages pretty well,” says Kane Williamson. “It’s a quick turnaround, almost like a continuation of the series we had in the UAE. The conditions are different and we have to adapt well. There is some depth and guys knocking on the door.” “We would have bowled first, lots of grass on the wicket and moisture,” says Dinesh Chandimal.
“We have played in the subcontinent in the last couple of series and we couldn’t play a lot of seamers then. They have a chance now to come in, get lots of wickets and do well. Everyone is in shape and looking forward to doing well.”
New Zealand won the toss and elected to bowl First.
Pitch report: There is a steady wind. It is likely to get stronger as the day wears on. A bit moist and overcast at the moment, but the sun will come out later in the day. Not quite as green. Still a good tinge of green across. Day one is slow and tacky and the ball may seam and we would have some tennis ball bounce as the Test goes on. That may be different this time. There is a slight difference in the dryness, but it’s a new-ball pitch, so New Zealand need to pitch it up and get three-four wickets early.
