New Zealand is in a good rhythm

The New Zealand team is in a good rhythm at the moment. His top order and especially both the openers are batting brilliantly. However, there is a world-class batsman like Kane Williamson in the middle order.

On the other hand, talking about bowling, the Kiwi team is strong on this front. Apart from Tim Southee and Trent Boult, there is left-arm spinner Mitchell Santner. We have seen his brilliance against Australia.

Sri Lanka under pressure

The Sri Lankan team has gone through difficulties in this tournament so far. Three of his players got injured, while the batting lineup could not click. This team, captained by Dashhun Shanaka, has played two matches. He won one match and lost in the other. In Group 1, Sri Lanka is at number five with 2 points. If they want to keep their semi-final hopes alive, they will have to win this match against New Zealand.

unlikely to change in NZ’s playing XI

It is unlikely that Kane Williamson will make any changes to the winning combination. On the other hand, the Sri Lankan team can replace a spinner and replace it with a specialist batter.

Probable XI of Both Teams

New Zealand: Devon Conway, Finn Allen, Kane Williamson (c), Glenn Phillips, Mark Chapman, James Neesham, Mitchell Santner, Tim Southee, Ish Sodhi, Lockie Ferguson, Trent Boult.

Sri Lanka: Pathum Nisanka, Kusal Mendis (wk), Dhananjaya de Silva, Bhanuka Rajapakse, Charit Aslanka, Dasun Shanaka (c), Wanindu Hasaranga, Chamika Karunaratne, Lahiru Kumara, Mahesh Teekshana and Pramod Madushan.
