New Zealand and Sri Lanka tend to have a strange relationship when it comes to multi-national encounters. In most cases, the encounters result in a New Zealand win, after looking very dominant. Sri Lanka though, despite looking dominated tend to provide a fight back on most occasions. In this tournament, Sri Lanka are currently at two points. A win takes them ahead of New Zealand, but doing so will be a tough ask. The likes of Wanindu Hasaranga are around, but a Sri Lankan win would result in a true dogfight between the sides.

NZ vs SL Key Players

Mitchell Santner

On a track that will turn considerably, Mitchell Santner is going to be a handful. He knows how to extract spin pretty well and is in pretty good form with both bat and ball right now.

Maheesh Theekshana

Maheesh Theekshana’s carrom ball is working wonders even in Australia. He is bowling well in the powerplay and will be a very big weapon for Sri Lanka against Australia. While there will be more bounce in Perth, it will interesting to see how he uses it along with his carrom ball.
