Kiwi coach tips Lanka over SA

New Zealand coach Mike Hesson suspects Sri Lanka could be too good for South Africa in the opening World Cup quarterfinal in Sydney on Wednesday, but much will depend on the toss. “It’s a massive game. We are on the same side of the draw, so it’ll be interesting at Sydney. I think winning the toss and batting over there’s generally pretty important if it’s going to turn. I think Sri Lanka are dangerous in those conditions and South Africa are going to have to play well,” Hesson said.

He also said there was more to the West Indies, Kiwis’ quarterfinal opponents, than Chris Gayle. “We won’t spend our time on just one player. We’ll make sure we prepare as well as we can for every opposition member,” Hesson said.
