New Zealand and Sri Lanka both fancy their chances in Christchurch for second Test

New Zealand and Sri Lanka both have unfinished business when they head into the series-deciding second Test in Christchurch on Wednesday. The home side have put the frustration of the drawn first Test aside as they push to win a fourth consecutive series for the first time in their history. Sri Lanka are equally determined to show the epic partnership by Angelo Mathews and Kusal Mendis to save the match in Wellington last week was no fluke. “We got so much confidence from that game for this game,” wicketkeeper Niroshan Dickwella said during nets practice Monday, ahead of the Boxing Day Test on what promises to be a green wicket that should provide some encouragement to the bowlers.
