Cardiff: In the third match of the ICC World Cup today, New Zealand will face Sri Lanka on the Sophia Gardens ground. In such a situation, the Kiwi team is considered to be very heavy in this match.
New Zealand had defeated India in their first practice match. His bowling was excellent in this match, as well as the batsmen showed a lot. In the second match, however, the West Indies batters had thrashed the Kiwi team. The team’s bowlers did not stop the West Indies from crossing 400.
What does the batting order of Sri Lanka say is that
batters did well though. Especially Captain Ken Williamson and Tom Blundle. There is no power hitter like the West Indies in Sri Lanka’s team and this is a relief for New Zealand.
If Sri Lankan batting is seen, then he does not see any strong batting order. Team captain Dimut Karunaratne has been sent to England by the team captain four years later.
When Karunaratne was given command of the team, he played his last ODI four years ago. After this, he wore the Sri Lankan ODI team jersey in Scotland in May.
Angelo Matthews will not play due to injury, if the match
turns to match the batting with captaincy or not, then it will be known only after the World Cup.
The team has experienced batsman like Angelo Mathews in batting but he has been struggling with form due to injury due to inside and outside. In batting Lahiru Thirimane, Kushil Mendis, Avishka Fernando, Dhananjay D Silva are some other names.
Ticking to the Kiwi team’s swing will be a challenge for all of them.
There is a name like Lasith Malinga in bowling, but with age the bowler has lost his torso. Although he did well in the Indian Premier League (IPL) but he was T20 and this ODI.
Compared to Sri Lanka, the Kiwi team is ahead of them in every field. The main axis of batting is Captain Williamson. To support him, Martin Guptill, Tom Latham, Connil Munro, Henri Nicholas, Ross Taylor. They all want to play big innings.
Trent Bowtault is the main weapon of the team in bowling. In England conditions, how dangerous they could be, they had told India only in practice match. Tim Southey, Colin D. Grandhomme, Lucky Ferguson to accompany him, Spin has Michel Santnar and Ish Sodhi.
