Speaking about the Hamilton Pitch in New Zealand Interim Coach Jerome Jayaratna says that the Hamilton Pitch has been doctored.
He insisted that he’s intelligence tells him that it has been known to take spin as the game goes on.
However, he is assuming that the wicket has been doctored to suit the New Zealanders, which is understandable.
He added that there is more than 18 millimeters of grass on the wicket.
Captain Angelo Mathews had blamed that loss of the previous Test Match, partly on his batsmen's reticence, but with more fraught batting conditions now expected in Hamilton, Sri Lanka may mull the merits of conservatism again.
