SRI LANKA OR NEW ZEALAND- WHO WILL WIN THE GAME?

Excitement seems to be building up as the ICC World Cup 2019 proceeds towards the third match on 1 June, where world rank 4, New Zealand will play against Sri Lanka at Cardiff Wales Stadium, Cardiff. The first runner up of 2015 ICC World Cup, New Zealand is gearing up for the match and seems prepared to reach the knockout stage.

The ongoing group stage is for all the teams, where they play against each other once. The top four teams from this stage will make it to the knockout stage and finally the top 2 teams will proceed for finals.

Let’s take a look at the strengths and weaknesses of both the teams to analyze the fate of this match. After Putting down India in the warm up match a few days ago, New Zealand lost to West Indies in another one and Sri Lanka on the other side is not coming off too strong. Read ahead to find the comparative analysis of the teams as we try to predict who reigns over this match...

TEAM NEW ZEALAND

The star men of team New Zealand include Kane Williamson (c), Ross Taylor, Tom Latham (wk), Tom Blundell (wk), Mitchell Santner, Colin de Grandhomme, Lockie Ferguson, Tim Southee, Trent Boult, Colin Munro, Ish Sodhi, Henry Nicholls, Martin Guptill, Matt Henry, Jimmy Neesham.

ACES AND RIP OFFS

After delivering 14 wins from 14 matches in the recent home series against Sri Lanka, Pakistan, Bangladesh and West Indies, team New Zealand proved that their preparations for the world championship are going to put teams like Australia and India in a weak spot. With their current position, it is inevitable to see this team on the top four.

  • Vast experience

WEAKNESS

  • Under huge pressure to get ahead of Australia and India.

TEAM KEY PLAYERS:

  • Kane Williamson, Trent Boult, Ross Taylor

TEAM SRI LANKA

ACES AND RIP OFFS

Sri Lanka is portraying itself as a weaker team and has not been in good form after the retirement of Mahela Jayawardene and Kumar Sangakkara and because of the heat that is flowing in the team after the chaos over captain selection. Lasith Malinga and Angelo Mathews seem the only ray of hope for team Sri Lanka.

STRENGTH

  • All-rounder Angelo Mathews fitness and form.

WEAKNESS

  • Unquestionably dreadful performance in the past few years
  • Unrest in the team because of the selection issues

TEAM KEY PLAYERS:

ICC WORLD CUP 2019 WINNER PREDICTION

The chaos in the Sri Lanka team and exit of expert players from the team after the last world cup is the reason for weak position of the team, in addition, choosing Dimuth Karunaratne as captain, who hasn’t played much ODI matches since 2015, takes the Sri Lankan ship into deep waters. Another reason to worry for Sri Lanka is its bowlers who seem a little out of form, on the other hand, New Zealand’s performance has been consistent and with the current form of the team, they are sure to win this match.
