New Zealand tour of Sri Lanka :Sri Lanka Vs New Zealand, 1st T20i Live scorecard at Pallekele - Nov 19, 2013
Teams : Sri Lanka Vs New Zealand
Venue: Played at Pallekele International Cricket Stadium
Match scheduled to begin at 19:00 local time (13:30 GMT)
Pitch report :The Pallekele pitch has tended to provide assistance to seam bowling under lights, though on occasion it has also been a happy venue for spinners. If rain is in the air, teams may choose to bowl first, reasoning that it is more difficult to defend a total with a wet ball.It should perhaps go without saying at this stage in the tour, but once again, rain shapes to be the defining influence of the match. The past two days in Pallekele have been hot and humid, before rain has arrived after dusk, around the time the match is scheduled to begin. Tuesday's forecast is for more of the same.
