New Zealand, defeated finalists in 2015, will start their 2019 cricket World Cup championships today in Cardiff against maladjusted but unpredictable Sri Lanka. The game signals the start of a weekend full of exciting matches, with cricket World Cup fever now in full swing. Wherever you are in the world, you can watch the match using our guide below to get a live stream from New Zealand vs Sri Lanka.
Currently in the ICI Men & apos; s ODI team rankings, New Zealand has maintained much of the core team that impressed so much at the last World Cup, with Kane Williamson stepping up to replace Brendon McCullum in the captain role as the only major exception. Sri Lanka, on the other hand, is by no means a picture of stability, with skipper Dimuth Karunaratne – their fourth captain in eight months – who has not played a competitive ODI in two years.
The Lions & apos; the recent form seems to reflect the confusion and disgrace behind the scenes, with Sri Lanka losing 24 of their last 28 completed ODIs – with recent echoing losses to South Africa and Australia in the run-up to the tournament.
New Zealand, on the other hand, achieved an impressive six wicket victories over India, but lost 91 points to an improving West Indies in their World Cup warm-ups.
Despite their blip against the Windies, many will be dipping the Black Caps to reflect their performance during the last World Cup and the Saturday game offers an early chance for bowling duo Tim Southee and Trent Boult to shine and the potential of their new-ball partnership to show. .
The Kiwi ' s may be favorites, but it would be wrong to disregard the enviable World Cup record of Sri Lanka. Players like Angelo Mathews – who want to make a statement with selectors after being controversially dismissed as captain – and the reliable dynamite fast bowler Lasith Malinga must ensure that the match is not an easy opener for their more cherished opponents.
