Sri Lanka A tour of New Zealand, 2nd unofficial Test – Match Report

Kithuruwan Vithanage

New Zealand ‘A’ sweeps the tour DAY THREE Video Scorecard A barnstorming 7-78 from legspinner Todd Astle in Lincoln’s late afternoon sunshine helped propel New Zealand A to a nine-wicket win with a day to spare in their last match with Sri Lanka A, for an impressive unbeaten run in the series. The haul took Astle to 11 for 133 for the match, his two caught and bowleds on what turned out to be the last day including the prize wicket of Kithurawan Vithanage on 84. The expansive Vithanage (above) had looked stylish in a confident knock, but his undoing signalled a quick end as the rest of the order fell away after his dismissal, the Sri Lankans despatched for… Read More →

First four-day match ends in a draw


DAY FOUR The equation was straightforward after New Zealand A declared on the last morning at 229/6, Sri Lanka A needing 342 runs and to weather an attack studded with BLACKCAPS. Video Scorecard The final innings began with a hiss and a roar. A double strike from Colin Munro and Neil Wagner in the half hour before lunch saw Sri Lanka in early peril at 47/3 inside 15 overs, still needing a further 295 at just under five an over. But Sri Lanka steadied, then fought back, with a crunch fourth wicket stand of 176 between Kithuruwan Vithanage (88) and Roshen Silva, who would bring up his well-earned century in the closing chapters of the day. Two quick wickets from… Read More →

New Zealand A sweeps the series

Sri Lanka A in New Zealand

A little bit of Lincoln damp couldn’t stop New Zealand A getting off to their customary flier as they set off in search of a clean sweep in the one-day series with Sri Lanka A. Scorecard Their final 50-over fling was reduced to 45 overs by rain ahead of play, but captain Henry Nicholls’s plan to bat first paid quick dividends. Nisala Tharaka’s opening over was ripped for 19, helped by three George Worker boundaries and a no ball that likewise took off for four as the aggressive opener set off to dominate the early proceedings. CREDITS: Photosport Worker racing ahead, Michael Pollard then found the first six of the innings off Rajitha and New Zealand A’s 50 was on… Read More →

New Zealand A seal one-day series with convincing win

Scorecard NZ A 302-9 (Will Young 85, Adam Milne 45, George Worker 40; PLS Gamage 3-49) beat Sri Lanka A 185 in 40.5 overs (DPDN Dickwella 50, DSNFG Jayasuriya 27, CP Kapugedera 27; Ish Sodhi 3-39)by 117 runs.

Twist in the tail in high-scoring thriller


Almost 600 runs scored in a one-dayer belied a gusty spring day at Hagley Oval as New Zealand A made it 2-0 in their four-match List A series against Sri Lanka A. The nailbiter was a marked step up for the visitors after their comprehensive opening loss at the same venue two days earlier. Right on target for most of their chase to hunt down New Zealand A’s solid 305/4, they had been poised for retribution — at the very least, a last-over thriller — until Kithuruwan Vithanage was left kicking himself after his wicket, in the 44th over, triggered a messy and costly late collapse. Scorecard It was a bitter turn of events for the 24-year-old number three, who… Read More →
