Sri Lanka vs New Zealand

Sri Lanka vs New Zealand T20 World Cup Highlights – 29 Oct 2022

Kane Williamson | New Zealand Captain

It was interesting match, the wicket was different as the surface had some tennis ball bounce so slower balls, cutters were very effective. (On Glenn Phillips) Incredible, any hundred is amazing but the way he worked hard and put pressure on the opposition after our poor start. We were being aggressive but keeping it simple in the powerplay, the length ball was the most difficult to hit, so we stuck to that and those cutters. The boys executed the plans really well.

First ten overs, we bowled really well. Credit to Glenn Phillips who played an outstanding knock but while fielding we dropped a few chances. Then 160 was maybe too much for us with the quality of Southee and Trent Boult. There is a way to chase big totals, but we lost early wickets and then lost them at regular intervals. We need to come out with a positive intent in the next couple of games.

Man of the Match is Glenn Philips

My conversation (with Mitchell) was to carry on as long as possible, play the right possible shots, was a little difficult against the slower balls, but we managed to get to a competitive total. I couldn’t put away the slower ones, but managed to execute my skills against the pacers, especially when pace was on. The bowlers did well later on. I did cramp up a bit, lack of salts possibly there, the boys asked me not to take any further risks on limping away.

Pitch Report | Dale Steyn and Mel Jones

We have moved across a couple of pitches and that means there will be one short boundary and one massive boundary. The pitch itself is an absolute belter, looks very similar to the previous two games played over here. The captain winning the toss will look to bat first.
