Cricket: Sri Lanka vs New Zealand Live Streaming 2nd Test 2012
Sri Lanka will be looking to add another humiliating defeat to New Zealand's records in the second Test at the P Sara Oval, after winning the first game by 10 wickets in three days thanks to Rangana Herath.
The spinner took 11 wickets as the Kiwis' struggles against spin showed no signs of abating, with only two half centuries coming in 20 knocks by their batsmen. This match is likely to offer more of the same, especially as Herath has a good record here.
The Black Caps will be hoping the rain predicted for all five days does in fact materialise, or that one or two of their top order players come good with centuries. The Black Caps' bowling has been good, so if they can get a decent score on the board they will be in with a chance.
In team news, Sri Lanka will likely call on veteran Tillakaratne Dilshan as he has recovered from his back injury. This means Dimuth Karunaratne will be dropped, despite scoring a half century on debut. That is likely to be the only change, given their dominance.
The Kiwis may not be able to call on Tim Southee as he has a slight injury, which would be a pity as this wicket has a bit of bounce and he was class in Galle. Spinner Todd Astle could be called upon, while Doug Bracewell will suffer the wicket-taking burden.
