Martin to Dilshan, FOUR, good ball and well played, it hits a good length to bring Dilshan forward, then starts to straighten but Dilshan uses soft hands to fend the ball down into the ground wide of the slips and gully and brings up an excellent and very rapid fifty!

SL - 72/2 after 13 ov
Dishan - 52* off 33
Mahela - 12* off 33

Sri Lanka v New Zealand, 1st Test, Galle, 4th day

Ryder and McCullum out with stomach bugs
Sa'adi Thawfeeq in Galle -
August 21, 2009


New Zealand wicketkeeper Brendon McCullum and reserve keeper Jesse Ryder have been hit by a stomach bug and have returned to their hotel room at the start of the fourth day of the first Test against Sri Lanka in Galle today. Reece Young will keep wickets in the second innings.

Since he was not part of the first Test squad, New Zealand had to ask Sri Lanka for permission to field him. David Currie, the New Zealand manager, said Sri Lanka had consented to allow Young and he hoped McCullum and Ryder would recover in time to bat in New Zealand's second innings.

New Zealand coach Andy Moles said Tim McIntosh would have the team's third-choice keeper but he was also suffering after being hit by the stomach bug.

Both Ryder and Young are the most severe cases among seven players in the team hit in varying degrees by a stomach bug during the Test match.

Currie ruled out the stomach bug was due to the food they consumed at the hotel. The other players who were affected by the bug during the Test were Jacob Oram, Jeetan Patel, Daniel Flynn, McIntosh and Chris Martin.

even though the Kiwis were never a test force, especially in the sub continent, I always have a soft spot for them as they are my team after Bangladesh.

Here's hoping someone pulls through tomorrow and they can bat out a draw.

Fifth day against Murali would be tough. However, with that rain the wicket didn't crack up so there may be some hope for NZ.

Vettori's SR test bowling rate is 76. A little high, hmm. First SR is 70.

What do you expect when he plays the majority of his cricket in New Zealand pitches?

His average/strike rage is better overseas and also he has no other bowlers to help him build pressure and people can just block him out and take on the other bowlers

He has one of the best test records in the subcontinent for a foreign spinner apparently and has a very similar record to murali against australia even though when Murali plays some of those games against aussie they were spinning pitches. New Zealand pitches are roads where the ball does not spin,

bharat
August 26, 2009, 03:13 PM
What Vettori needs is support !! NZ cant rely on him completely ..moreover vettori is not a "strike" bowler like Murali or Warne, he keeps one end tied up (a la Kumble in non-subcontinental pitches) the others need to take advantage of that .Ofcourse he will have great days where he will run through a side (like Kumble on non-subcontinental pitches) now and then but he needs support !!

NZ should be optimistic on their future batting ( has the potential to be the best) but their bowling needs to improve especially in the subcontinent pitches.

Much ado about nothing - all those T20 hype

57.3 Finally, Murali gets his man. A struggling McCullum, who has been living on a edge, falls. It was the doosra from the leg and middle stump line, bouncing, and McCullum tried to adjust by opening the bat-face and play with the turn but it bounced more, got the edge and went straight to Mahela at first slip. Murali went round the stumps for this delivery and struck immediately 183/6

Thats because we never play in the subcontinent, this series against Sri lanka was a forgone conclusion

Vettori has been playing since 1997 and has only played 5 tests in sri lanka.

I can't remember the last time we played a test in India, all I remember is on the last tour 4-5 New Zealanders scored centuries in a single innings. I don't think that will happen again for al oooooong time lol

Bond is back for T20I's. This is where things will go haywire. :fingerscrossed:

The return of Shane Bond. A spate of persistent injuries had already forced Bond to retire from Tests but in a dramatic turnaround of events he quit the ICL and is now on the verge of an international return. Bond's Twenty20 international record (12 wickets from nine games at 20.33) isn't the best and he'll be aiming to improve that rather than get overawed by the occasion. This is a crucial moment in New Zealand cricket.

For Srilanka I would be looking forward to G Rupasinghe, every new player introduced by Lank always carries something special, hope GR will bring in the same.

Murali has been ruled out with a groin injury that flared up on day five at the SSC and the legspinner Malinga Bandara has been drafted in in his place. The other spinning allrounder, Kaushal Lokuarachchi, may also slot in. Angelo Mathews will return and there may be a debut for the rookie batsman Gihan Rupasinghe. Sri Lanka's fast bowling attack is boosted by Lasith Malinga.

Waiting for a great series here.

September 1, 2009, 11:12 PM
I'm nervous of the hype around bondy

he isn't as young as he once was. At o ne stage he was up there as one of the best bowlers of all time at his peak, I mean he ripped the heart out of the Australian top order in their peak like no other bowler could. Bowling around 90-95 km/hr swinging it both ways with a deadly yorker

But he is nearly 35 now, and I would be surprised if he could still do half of what he could

Them yorkers is just unplayable. I wonder what would it take to get our Rubel master that. That is a weapon which would get BD many wins.

I don't think you will, The way Malinga bowls people call it cheating, but I don't because have you ever tried bowling like that? it goes in all directions
But for some reason Malinga can bowl yorker after yorker

Murali getting injured is a blessing in discise, Ive know how good a bowler bandara is for a while but he never gets a go because of murali, but look at that bowling

Too early to say. The man's just got back, let him settle down.

At 34, he still bowls like Asif on steroids.
