New Zealand vs Sri Lanka Prediction

Here are our New Zealand vs Sri Lanka predictions for their 2023 Cricket World Cup match, which should help you place more informed bets.

  • Sri Lanka is currently placed eighth on the points table with four points (two wins and six losses).
  • New Zealand is currently placed fourth on the points table with eight points (four wins and four losses).
  • In the last 10 ODIs between them, New Zealand have won eight, Sri Lanka have won only one, and one match was washed out.
  • The two teams have played 11 ODI World Cup games to date, with Sri Lanka winning six and New Zealand winning five.
  • Though both teams are grappling with injuries, New Zealand has a better team balance than Sri Lanka.
  • In the last 10 ODIs at the Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru, the team batting first has won three, while the team batting second has won seven.
  • The Chinnaswamy wicket is a belter of a track, and batters can pile on the big runs. There is little assistance for bowlers.
  • New Zealand vs Sri Lanka win probability: New Zealand (75%), Sri Lanka (25%)

This match is important for both teams. Sri Lanka, though eliminated, will play for their Champions Trophy qualification, while New Zealand will be vying for a spot in the semi-final.

We at CBA are betting on New Zealand to win this contest, considering the Sri Lankans look out of touch completely and have been grappling with multiple injuries. Moreover, the Kiwis have had a better head-to-head record against the Lankans in recent times.

Team News

New Zealand

  • The Black Caps are going into this match after a disastrous loss against Pakistan. They have now lost their last four matches on the trot.
  • It is a must-win match for the Kiwis, as a defeat would mean the end of the road for them should Pakistan beat England on Saturday.
  • The team is still struggling with multiple injuries, with Lockie Ferguson still doubtful and Matt Henry ruled out of the tournament.
  • The good news is that regular captain Kane Williamson is back, and he scored 95 runs against Pakistan in the last game. He will replace the out-of-form Will Young.
  • Ish Sodhi and Tim Southee will likely be replacing Lockie Ferguson and Matt Henry.

Sri Lanka

  • Sri Lanka is going into this match after a shocking loss against Bangladesh for the first time in a World Cup game. The Lankans have been officially eliminated.
  • They will, however, take this match seriously, as their Champions Trophy qualification is at stake.
  • Matheesha Pathirana and regular skipper Dasun Shanaka have been ruled out of the tournament, having been replaced by Angelo Matthews and Chamika Karunaratne.
  • The Lankan batters and bowlers have been under scrutiny, and the team does not look set to overcome the balanced New Zealand side. Their biggest disappointment has been their spinners, who have been clobbered for runs.

Key Players

New Zealand

  • Rachin Ravindra

With 523 runs from eight matches, Rachin Ravindra has been the leading runscorer for his side in the tournament. He became the first-ever cricketer to score three centuries in his maiden World Cup. Rachin Ravindra has displayed excellent resilience with the bat and has been timing the ball to perfection.

  • Kane Williamson

The captain is back with a bang. Having missed out on most of the tournament, Kane Williamson played a valiant knock of 95 against Pakistan, maintaining a good strike rate. He also has a tremendous record in this bilateral rivalry, and one look at the stats section will prove his credentials.

  • Tim Southee

With multiple injuries in the Kiwi dressing room and Tent Boult not in the best of form, the onus is on Tim Southee to provide the breakthroughs for his side. Though he has played only a solitary game so far, Southee will have to play the key role in this game should New Zealand look to qualify for the semi-finals.

Sri Lanka

  • Pathum Nissanka

The opener is the top-ranked ODI batsman for his side. Nissanka has scored over 1,000 runs in ODIs this calendar year — the first Sri Lankan batsman to do so since 2015. Even in this World Cup, Nissanka has been performing decently, having scored 330 runs so far.

  • Sadeera Samarawickrama

With 372 runs from eight matches, Sadeera Samarawickrama has been a consistent performer for his side and is the leading runscorer for the Lankans in this World Cup. He has maintained a strike rate in excess of 100 and played good knocks in crucial circumstances.

  • Dilshan Madushanka

With 21 wickets from eight matches, Dilshan Madushanka is currently the tournament’s leading wicket-taker. He became the first Sri Lankan player and only the second cricketer in the world, after Mitchell Starc, to scalp more than 20 wickets in his first World Cup outing.
