Earlier in the day, the SCG was treated to the Glenn Phillips show, as the stylish Kiwi batter scored a superb hundred after a rare failure from Devon Conway, Finn Allen, and Kane Williamson. Phillips scored 104 out of New Zealand’s 167 runs, as Sri Lanka was made to pay for some ordinary fielding and dropped catches after getting NZ to 15/3 at one stage. Quality spin seems to be the kryptonite for Conway and Finn Allen, although Sri Lanka couldn’t capitalize well enough. Maybe there is a lesson there for future teams that will play New Zealand. For now, stick around for the presentations…
New Zealand has had a good start to the competition in terms of fatigue. They beat Australia in Sydney before flying to Melbourne, where their match against Afghanistan was washed out before a ball was played. They would have loved to play that match, of course, but they haven’t had to deal with insane schedules or drastic time zone shifts.
Meanwhile, Sri Lanka has been knocked around, and they arrive at Sydney in chaos. They began their campaign in Geelong in the qualifications and have since lost three fast bowlers to injury. They then played a match in Hobart three days after the qualifications were completed. They next played Australia in Perth two days later. They’ve been transported back across the continent to Sydney. By the way, there appears to be some confusion concerning their schedule inside the side. Their next game is on Tuesday in Brisbane. They then return to Sydney.
Sri Lanka, on the other hand, has a history of finding grievance in high-profile tasks, and perhaps more crucially, of weaponizing that grievance in order to blast their way to positive outcomes. Some examples are test trips to South Africa in 2019, England in 2014, the T20 World Cup in 2014, and, of course, the 1996 World Cup. But they’re up against a team that appears to be far more prepared and more established than they are.
New Zealand has only lost three of its 13 completed matches this year. They have a nuclear top order, adequate firepower in the middle, and a world-class seam attack for Australian conditions. Meanwhile, Sri Lanka is surviving on top-order runs without much help from the middle order, and their assault appears more susceptible following Tuesday’s loss to Australia.
To overcome their cricketing and fatigue-related problems, Sri Lanka must dig deep and find fresh gear. New Zealand just has to expand on what they’ve already done.
Weather and Pitch Report:
Fortunately, after two cut-short games on Friday, the figure great searches in Sydney. This match will be played on a new pitch, and there will probably be a short side of the ground. The SCG has for the most part been the best batting surface such a long way in the competition.
