New Zealand arrived in Sri Lanka with a plan. Having studied England’s 3-0 Test series victory on the island last year, New Zealand have picked a squad that could push as many as three frontline finger-spinners into the playing XI in Galle. They also have a recent record that suggests they are one of the more reliable non-Asian teams in Asia, having defeated Pakistan 2-1 in the UAE last year, as well as having drawn a Test series in Sri Lanka on their most-recent visit, in 2012. There is plenty of experience in their batting order.
On the other side, the rejuvenated Sri Lankan team has different plans. They look well prepared for the ACID test and the they are confident of overcoming any challenge posed by the formidable Kiwis. According to the captain of Sri Lankan team Dimuth Karunaratne said that the guys are well energetic and confident to put up a better performance in this format of the game as well. The first test match between the two teams will start tomorrow at the Galle International ground.
