New Zealand Vs Sri Lanka, 2nd Test Live Streaming 2019
The best part of the grounds here is that they cover the entire ground surface, so we don’t have to wait long for the garden to dry. Unfortunately, it’s still raining and there’s already plenty of water on the decks. Gardeners believe they need about 90 minutes to clean the water from the decks and get everything ready. We have an extra hour of buffer time, so we still have 90 changes, even if we start at 11:00 and then there’s also an extra half hour towards the end if needed.
Rain, rain, go
Unfortunately, it’s raining right now and the covers are firmly in place. The forecast for the day isn’t promising either. Fingers crossed, we’ll have some action soon.
Karunaratne has turned out to be a guiding force for the Sri Lanka team. The calm and calm left-hander has taken the island nation in three tests and Sri Lanka has won all three so far. And to make it even better, a couple of those victories have been backed up by Sri Lanka pursuing important goals.
In the Galle Test match, the left-handed hitter also led from the front with a brilliant 122 in the fourth inning. What about New Zealand? When visitors set a challenging target of 268, they would have felt a victory, but that was not the case. A series of spontaneous opportunities to give Karunaratne a break did not help his cause.
On a positive note, the likes of Watling, Taylor, Ajaz, and company made useful contributions. Somerville had no luck in the fourth inning. Tourists would also have fond memories of the second test site, P Sara Oval, with New Zealand’s victory in 2012. Boult and Southee’s duo had combined to collect 15 wickets at that Test.
Will Sri Lanka bring the experienced Dilruwan Perera? On the other hand, is there a place for Neil Wagner in the New Zealand camp? Launch and teams in a while. New Zealand vs Sri Lanka 2nd Test match will shortly resume after rain stops.
