Discussion about the First World Cup 2015 Match

New Zealand was in trouble against the Zimbabwe. Zimbabwe beat Sri Lanka. Sri Lanka lost in South Africa. South Africa lost to the New Zealand. Regardless of the importance has already been granted to these three results in Lincoln and Christchurch this week - Kyle Abbott has described as 'amazing' to watch South Africa scrap to a narrow victory, JP Duminy said that they "don't have not been diverted" bydefeat - is likely to evaporate come February 14, 2015 when the WC begins at Hagley Park. The nature of the warmup game is that teams tend to not take too seriously, with the option of aligning all 15 players. But history has shown us that you can really not too read in them. In a Cup 2007 warm-up world, the India seduced by West Indies85 and we know all how this tournament is found for them.

Game One of the World Cup offers hosts New Zealand, riding a high during the last year and comes to know a hammering 134-term of South Africa on the place of Saturday, the picturesque Hagley oval, facing Sri Lanka - finalists in the last two world cups. Two teams with good records of the World Cup, and who know each other well enough. Sri Lanka have been stationed in the country for about seven weeks, and have a good sense of the conditions. New Zealand, skippered by Brendon McCullum, are spoken as contenders to the title after their best result ever years of test and ODI series win with the India, Pakistan and Sri Lanka.

On Friday, a day before the first of the World Cup in Christchurch, McCullum requested once more about the extra pressure of Captain of one of the Favorites, which are in excellent shape, the fans at home. This is a huge game, not only for the home team but for the host city, which remains in the regions devastated by the continuation of the tragic 2011 earthquakes. Who you ask, the theme of sports fans of Christchurch requiring reason for joy was resonance.

"I have a job to do and it’s all - encompassing in terms of captaincy, opening the stick and when trying to execute the strategies on the ground. Y at - it extra pressure? Iguess this is where everybody", he said. "Simply because the nature of it being a World Cup, I am excited about this subject and I have big ambitions on what I want to accomplish to goal. Whether you influence them or not is another thing, but I'm going to feel reasonably confident and secure in the fact that I'm surrounded by guys who I trust and believe in.

Belief. What is a word that has in a sense embodied the rise in the New Zealand as a team during the year leading to the World Cup? Against India, a team that regularly has the bossed in ODIs over the last years; they won 4-0 last January. Then a series of tests to win in the West Indies, lost 2-0 to ODI at home to South Africa, before a test match come-de-behind draw against Pakistan in the United Arab Emirates United. In the subsequent ODIs, the New Zealand won 3-2. Sri Lanka landed in the country and were beaten in the tests and ODIs, and Pakistan has handed over a loss series 2-0 ODI. How do you think that this is a team that believes in itself?

When you go into a tournament as outsider, dark horses or Favorites, and everything is irrelevant, once the games begin, "McCullum.This is awesome because it awakens the energy and anticipation and expectation, but once the game starts in fact this is return to racing in its purest form - which is bat and the ball and someone wins and someone loses. Therefore, it is the mindset that we have and we know what works for us. This is just what we can focus, not on the way in which some people were waiting for us and how some people are writing us off the coast. It is irrelevant from our perspective. We know what we need to do to succeed and if someone else is good enough to beat us, then so be.
Sri Lanka are also riding on the confidence, their team captain Angelo Mathews maintained as he given remarks of what the team has learned from their time in the hundreds. This is wonderful to have game a bit more cricket in New Zealand before the start of the World Cup 2015, but from tomorrow whoever plays the best of cricket will continue to win, said. 'I think we have a slight advantage. We are used to the conditions, we have an idea just from the wickets are like, but we have to be aggressive and play well to win against the New Zealand cricket. They are on a roll, they have been winning lots of games in the recent past, so we need to save our forces and be positive. "

Sri Lanka does not have the finger on their game for Saturday's match XI, but Mathews confirmed that Lasith Malinga to play. His most gives the team its iron of bowling spearhead, a Slingshot arm bowler fast with 271 counters ODI and the experience of two world cups, in which he left an impression on both occasions. The importance of the return of Malinga - he took 29 wickets against New Zealand in 21ODIs - has not escaped to McCullum.

"He is a world-class player who made a significant difference to their bowling line-up, he said. '.Mainly at the trailing end of the part. He is a player of phenomenal death, a factor that we must overcome if we are to succeed in this game. If we can head in these final overs with a beautiful platform, and we checked some of our ingredients key along the way, so I hope that we can put it under a bit of pressure. Certainly, Sri Lanka is a stronger team of the participation of Lasith Malinga.

If the conditions at Hagley Park during the two matches of preparation this week are any indication, the surface will encourage stick and bowling. On Monday, Sri Lanka touched 279 runs for 7 wickets in 44.4 overs and asked tough questions of South Africa who has stumbled to a D / objective L revised 188 with three balls and five wickets remaining. The sleeves of Sri Lanka are a century Cup and-sweater-powered off 82 balls byTillakaratne Dilshan. On Wednesday, the New Zealand accumulated 331 for 8 in 50overs then seduced by South Africa for 197 in 44.2, with Boult and early strikes fromTim Southee effectively put the match as a contest before Duminy and VernonPhilander products 50 gravelly.

After playing two matches in a day here in tour  an ODI in January and Monday's warm up against South Africa, Mathews knew the nature of the surface. "It is contingent on the weather, however the wicket looks really good. There will be many pathways, “according to him." "If this is a respectable window, we will try to bat first. We have the bowlers to stop the opposition and if we Bowl first, we experience in our stick [to hunt]. Therefore, it isnot really important to us. As long as we play good cricket, our brand of cricket, wewill be able to win. "

McCullum echoed the views of Mathews. ' [The pitch] looks good, looks like it has a bitof bounce and should be a one-stop even cricket, said. 'This is what you want in aWorld Cup, a step that has a bit for both parties. We have a flat surface on which the team that plays the best cricket will come out on top. This is a good window which hasbeen prepared.
