A washed out first day in Christchurch is unlikely to prompt wholesale changes in strategy, because there is still plenty of time left in the game, New Zealand batting coach Craig McMillan said. Jean Segura Jersey . Not even the toss was possible on Thursday, which means neither team has yet named their XI.Play is now set to begin half an hour early, for the following four days, as long as weather permits. A minimum of 98 overs is scheduled for each of these days, when usually, only 90 are expected to be bowled.Theres not a lot of overs lost even though we lost the whole day today, McMillan said. We havent named our XI, and there are probably discussions on that tonight, but I dont think too much has changed.Though a day of rain may make an already green Hagley Oval surface even more conducive to seam movement, McMillan hoped the recent proliferation of greentops in New Zealand will have equipped his batsmen with the means to cope.I think its fair to say looking at that surface that the toss will be important, he said. I think with the pitch being under cover today with the rain about, that first session tomorrow (Friday) is certainly going to be challenging. Hopefully, though, theres enough movement for a couple of days, so that the team that wins the toss doesnt have so big an advantage. I think theres going to be enough for both teams in the first innings.These are conditions that weve been in quite a lot over the last few years. Weve batted first on a number of pitches that looked very similar to the one out there, and weve done it well. Its nothing new to us but we still know that we have to get things right against a very good Pakistan attack.McMillan had been charged with helping New Zealands batsmen - who were battered in India - regain some confidence ahead of the long home season. He said the top order had prepared specifically for the Pakistan attack, with special attention given to combating the left-arm angle that Mohammad Amir, and perhaps Rahat Ali, will provide.I want to see the batsmen commit to their own personal game plan, McMillan said. Weve done some good work over the last two days in the nets. Both sets of fast bowlers are licking their lips and are pretty excited I think by whats on offer. I think they have to commit to the style and game plan that they want to follow through with and they have to make good decisions. They have to be nice and precise the way they go about it. If they do that, theres a reasonable chance they can come out with some success. Hisashi Iwakuma Jersey . The Oilers come in having lost five in a row (0-4-1) and 16 of their last 20 games, dropping a 2-1 decision to the Vancouver Canucks on Tuesday. Felix Hernandez Jersey . - Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco is not a fan of his teams use of the wildcat formation, saying "it makes you look like a high school offence. . -- The Magic have their first victory of the new year. They havent had this good a start to an NRL season in over a decade, and Canberra genuinely believe something special is happening at the club.Few can put their finger on exactly whats changed this year, but a more mellow coach Ricky Stuart and his push for a more inclusive culture appears to be paying dividends.The Raiders sit seventh on the ladder with a 8-1-6 win-draw-loss record, just three points outside the top four.Not since 2003 have they lost so few games after 16 rounds.That year, they won 10 of their first 14 games and reached the semi-finals. It was also the last time they finished the season inside the top four.Theres something special building here, club veteran Josh Papalii said.I think the boys really believe somethings building for maybe finals footy or hopefully a grand final down the track.But weve got to obviously take it week by week; were still trying to be consistent.Papalii, who made his NRL debut with the Raiders in 2011, said Stuart was pretty intense when he first arrived in the nations capital from Parramatta two yeaars ago. Edgar Martinez Jersey. But the Queensland and Australian enforcer has noticed a change in recent times.I have, he said.As a former player for the Green Machine hes obviously very passionate about this club - you can sense it in videos where he talks about the green jersey and how much pride we need to take in it.Hes won three premierships and played in a few grand finals, so hopefully we can repeat that era.Winger Jordan Rapana, who only became a first-grade regular last season under Stuarts tutelage, agreed the club champion had mellowed out.Especially after a win, hes a lot nicer, Rapana laughed.Hes a great coach and hes leading us in the right direction.Weve got a good culture here. The more that we win, the stronger the culture is. Its a good environment to be in and the boys here a real tight.The Raiders havent played finals football since 2012.They face cellar-dwellers Newcastle at GIO Stadium on Sunday afternoon.
