Pallekele has been cloudy, but largely free of rain in the two days preceding the match, but scattered showers are expected for Sunday, so if any cricket is possible, fans and players may be in for a frustrating stop-start day. The pitch at least would have had little chance to dry out in the brief periods of sunshine, and it may not have as much venom as the greentop that was prepared for the Twenty20. The challenge to the players will be to assume a match-day mindset after all the downtime of the past seven days. There’s a saying in Sri Lanka that if you want rain, play a cricket match. But from mid-October to December, this rule does not apply. It is going to rain nonetheless, whether there is cricket scheduled or not. In 2010, West Indies found that out on their tour which began early in November. On that occasion, the rains became progressively worse through the Test series, and the third Test barely saw 100 overs of play across five days in Pallekele. The ODI leg that began a few days later was postponed till the end of January.
It is easy to blame Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) for scheduling another tour during the monsoon, but this time, perhaps, there was little they could have done. In 2012, there was no obvious window in which both sides – New Zealand and Sri Lanka – had nothing in their schedule, bar the few weeks during the IPL. Laying aside SLC’s apparent willingness to lower themselves to any ignominy to make a buck, April and May is also a poor time to schedule cricket in Sri Lanka due to the southwest monsoon which begins around then. Aside from that, New Zealand Cricket rely on funds from the IPL to pay their player salaries, and for the smaller boards like these two, playing international cricket during the IPL is a much greater sacrifice than for the ECB or Cricket Australia.
