SRILANKA vs CANADA at HAMBANTOTA 3rd Match, Live Cricket Video FEB 20, 2011, LIVE SCORE SL VS CA scorecard

Sri Lanka's home record is imposing but the surroundings of Hambantota are almost as unfamiliar to them as they are to the visitors. A new pitch at a new stadium, the captains have been keen to praise the look of both. The state of pitches at this tournament is already shaping up into a bone of contention, and set against the fiasco at Eden Gardens, the Sri Lankan board should be credited for getting the stadium ready in time.

Canada have made some strides since then. There are central contracts in place. They also have a clutch of Under-19 players in the side, homegrown products and a "brand" of cricket they are keen to show off. It is bracing talk. "We've got some very exciting youngsters coming through the Canadian program for the first time. It's important to show our brand of cricket and home-grown cricketers, as opposed to the past where lots of guys from India and Pakistan came in after playing in their domestic leagues and 'A' teams. We want to show what Canada has produced for the first time."

Prime among them is Nitish Kumar, all of 16 and with much hype around him. No wonder his listed nickname is Tendulkar. From Bagai's words, the hype may not be unjustified. "He's my favourite batsman to watch in the world. I've never seen a talent like that and a lot of coaches in world cricket say that about him. He's so young but very exciting."
