Blackcaps v Sri Lanka One-Day International
THE BLACKCAPS ARE BACK IN TOWN!
International cricket returns to Nelson this summer, with the Blackcap taking on Sri Lanka in the third One-Day International of the series at Saxton Oval, on Tuesday 8 January 2019.
The Sri Lankan cricket team always bring a positive style of play, and will take on New Zealand in two Tests, three ODIs and a one-off T20.
“The Blackcaps v Sri Lanka match is another excellent opportunity to promote the Nelson region on the world stage,” Nelson Mayor Rachel Reese said. “Nelson is proud to host the Blackcaps and Sri Lanka, and welcome the many visitors to our city and region.”
New Zealand Cricket CEO David White said “NZC is delighted that Saxton Oval will play host to a Blackcaps ODI. New Zealand tends to get the best outcomes from its boutique cricket grounds, and the Nelson venue is a prime example of this. It’s good we can host a match at such a popular holiday destination in early January.”
“Nelson Cricket in partnership with Nelson City Council is very excited to be again hosting the Black Caps in a One Day International on the 8th January,” Nelson Cricket Association General Manager David Leonard said. “It is fantastic that locals and visitors to the region get the opportunity to see the Black Caps live at one of the best boutique cricket venues in the country.”
