With 1 loss against Australia and a win against Ireland, Sri Lanka is in 5th spot of Group 1. As we all know group 1 is pretty much open to all teams. Sri Lanka still has 3 matches left to play. In these two matches and the qualifiers that they played before, there have been some notable performances from some Sri Lankan players while some had some bad performances. Kusal Mendis and Pathum Nissanka, as we have already seen, can provide explosive opening overs with the bat. Wanindu Hasaranga was the 2nd highest wicket taker in the Asia Cup 2022. Although He had a bad day with bowling against Australia, he can very well destroy the opponents batting line-up on any given day. Bhanuka Rajapaksa provides Sri Lanka with much needed firepower in the middle order. Captain Shanaka is a powerful hitter of the ball who bats at middle order. Pramod Madhushan and Dilshan Madhushanka will handle the pace bowling.

The New Zealand had a bomb start to their World Cup campaign. They are currently on the top of the table in group no 1 with 3 points.  They won their first match against Australia with a big margin and due to that they had a great Run rate while their second game against Afghanistan got washed out. The New Zealand team is full of brilliant players. Their captain, Kane Williamson, is one of the successful captains out there. He always stays calm and cool and takes rational decisions on crucial moments which many times have saved his team from losing although there has been some criticism of his recent performance especially in the T20I format.


Jimmy Neesham is one beast of a player as he is an all-rounder. He can hit the ball finely as he has some serious strength while Daryl Mitchell is another man who can bat magnificently while Finn Allen, who replaced Guptil in the playing 11, played a ferocious innings of 42 runs on just 16 balls. Devon Conway showcased his class in the match against Australia and scored 92 unbeaten runs on 58 balls and earned the MoM award.   Ish Sodhi is right arm leg-break bowler of the New Zealand team who has brilliant previous records. In pace bowling, they have the likes of Trent Boult, Adam Milne, Tim Southee and Kylie Jamieson. All these pace bowlers will be crucial for New Zealand as everyone is aware of the fact that Australian pitches favor the pacers.


The New Zealand team is looking really dangerous as they defeated a mighty team like Australia in the first match by such a big margin. Moreover, it is known to everyone how good the New Zealand team performs in the big events. So, Sri Lanka will have to give their absolute best to win this match otherwise it’s New Zealand who are favourites.







Sri Lanka

New Zealand and Sri Lanka are two of the most evenly-matched teams in the world. They have faced each other in 11 World Cups, with New Zealand winning six and Sri Lanka winning five.

This will be the 12th time that these two teams have met at a World Cup, and it is sure to be a close match. New Zealand comes into the match as the slight favorite, but Sri Lanka cannot be counted out.

Both teams are strong in all three aspects of the game: batting, bowling, and fielding. However, New Zealand may have an edge in batting, as they have several players who are in good form.

Sri Lanka will need to bowl well and field impeccably if they want to win this match. They will also need to make use of any opportunities that come their way, as they are unlikely to get many.

This is sure to be an exciting match between two evenly-matched teams. Be sure to tune in to see who comes out on top!
