    NZ vs SL Test Series

    From March 9 to April 8, Sri Lanka is scheduled for a tour of New Zealand. On this tour, they are scheduled to play three ODIs, three T20Is, and two Test matches. The first Test will take place in Christchurch from March 9–13. The second Test will take place in Wellington from March 17–21.

    The 13 players included in New Zealand squad for their upcoming two-test series against Sri Lanka were hardly a surprise. All 13 of the players who participated in their recent 1-1 tie with England were selected, with the exceptions of the injured Kyle Jamieson and the uncapped seamer Jacob Duffy.

    In a thrilling game that they snatched by one run in Wellington to tie the series against England, Tim Southee will captain the team that is coming off the high of becoming just the fourth team to win after following on. On the other side, Dimuth Karunaratne will serve as the captain of the Sri Lankan test team.

    Along with Southee, Matt Henry, Blair Tickner, and Scott Kuggeleijn, Wagner will be in charge of the pace-bowling division.
