Mahela Jayawardene and Lasith Malinga have been dropped from the side for the T20 match against New Zealand tomorrow and Ajantha Mendis is out due to injury. I believe that gives New Zealand an advantage.
But that’s only if there will be any play at all. The weather forecast is not great for this series. Heavy rains are predicted.
New Zealand have played a lot of cricket in Pallekele during the T20 World Cup, so they will be accustomed to the conditions. They are favourites to win in my book.
Do you agree?
