Sri Lanka wicketkeeper batsman Niroshan Dickwella is confident the team will put on a good show in tomorrow’s second Test against New Zealand.

Dickwella told journalists Sri Lanka wants to win against the world’s number two ranked team.

He said it’s going to be a different game in Colombo and fast bowlers will come into play a lot.

Sri Lanka will likely leave out off-spinner Akila Dananjaya, whose action was reported to be suspect for a second time by match officials after the Galle Test.

Dananjaya, who claimed a five-wicket haul in the opening game, was forced to remodel his action after it was first reported in November last year.

Technically he is allowed to play the second Test, but he is likely to travel to India instead to test his action.

Dilruwan Perera has been drafted into the squad and is expected to play.

Sri Lanka will move up to the number five of the official ICC rankings if they win the second Test and the series.
