NZ vs SL Match Preview
New Zealand, for all reasons, will hope for assistance for seamers from the pitch as their best and one of the world’s best fast bowler Trent Boult enjoys such situations.
The numbers also say in favour of Boult as he has taken 108 wickets since WC2015 which is highest by any pacer in the world. Rabada has taken the same amount of wickets during this period but has played 12 more matches.
For Srilanka, They don’t know what they should expect and what they will achieve in this tournament but this sometimes makes you fearless and the fearless approach can do wonders with 1983 has been the example.
James Neesham, Colin De Grandhomme and Mitchel Santer are the much-needed power hitting options New Zealand have. The exits of Champions Trophy 2017 was blamed on lack of power hitters down the order but these 3 will be the answer.
For New Zealand, there’s a major concern right at the top. Colin Munro is no longer the white-ball monster who spooks bowlers and was struck flush on the foot by a Jasprit Bumrah yorker in the first warm-up and missed the second game against West Indies. Henry Nicholls got the rather unexpected nod to open alongside Martin Guptill in four ODI’s at home earlier this year and gave a good account of himself. He looks set to bed in at the top – whether Munro is fit or not.
Srilankan Batting looks pretty stable on paper and they have big hitters in form of Ishuru Udana and Thisara Perera lower down the order but they lack playing as a team and if they play as a team and everyone knows his role and play accordingly they will be giving tough fights. Angelo Mathews will be a player to keep an eye on as he is the most senior batsman in the team and team management will look up to him as an anchor who keeps middle order together.
Sri Lanka has had a more chaotic build-up to the tournament: they nearly missed automatic qualification and all told they have lost 41 of the 55 ODIs they have played since the start of 2017.
Dimuth Karunaratne, who has played all of one ODI since the previous World Cup, finds himself in the middle of chaos as the captain. Despite the promise of Kusal Mendis and the experience of Angelo Mathews, Sri Lanka’s batting line-up doesn’t make you sit up and take notice of them. and their fielding is worst for any team in this tournament.
