Sri Lanka’s best hope in New Zealand is for their seamers to attack the opposition batsmen. So said captain Dinesh Chandimal on the eve of the first Test, in Wellington. He didn’t quite say that Sri Lanka’s batting was fragile (even though it is). He didn’t make mention of the fact that his young quicks aren’t really the bowl-dry-and-wait-for-the-mistake sort (even though they aren’t). But he did acknowledge that going aggressively at New Zealand with the ball gave Sri Lanka their best chance.
