New Zealand will clash horns against the Asia Cup Champions Sri Lanka in the 27th match of the World Cup. The match will be held at the Sydney Cricket Ground on 29th October at 1:30 PM IST.

Hopefully, rain stays away from this exciting clash. New Zealand thrashed Australia in the Opening match of the World Cup. Their match against Afghanistan got washed out due to rain. Sri Lanka have won the match but badly lost against Australia in the last match. It will be an exciting contest with the Sri Lankan spin against the attacking New Zealand batsmen.


Match: New Zealand vs Sri Lanka

Venue: Sydney Cricket Ground, Sydney

Date and Time: October 29, 1:30 PM IST

Telecast & Live Streaming: Star Sports Network and Hotstar


The pitch at SCG is very good for batting. Batsmen can score runs easily on this pitch. The Blackcaps scored 200 runs in the tournament opener at this venue. But the ball can swing under lights if bowled in the right areas.


New Zealand

Kane Williamson(C), Finn Allen, Devon Conway, MS Chapman, James Neesham, Mitchell Santner, Glenn Phillips, Trent Boult, LH Ferguson, Ish Sodhi, Tim Southee

Sri Lanka

Pathum Nissanka, C Asalanka, B Rajapaksa, D Shanaka(C), D de Silva, W Hasaranga, C Karunaratne, K Mendis, M Theekshana, L Kumara, K Rajitha


New Zealand looks favorite to win this match. If the Sri Lankan spinners trouble the New Zealand batsmen, the match would be more interesting.
