New Zealand vs Sri Lanka on November 9
New Zealand will face Sri Lanka in the 41st match of the ODI World Cup 2023 on Thursday (November 9) at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru. It will be the last group stage game for both teams. Sri Lanka have already been eliminated from the tournament, while this will be New Zealand’s last chance to make it to the top four. New Zealand faced Pakistan in their last game and suffered a loss despite posting 401 runs on the board. Rachin Ravindra scored another century in the tournament. Kane Williamson made a splendid 95 runs off 79 deliveries on his comeback. Pakistan lost their first wicket at the end of the second over. Fakhar Zaman and Babar Azam added 194 runs for the second wicket before rain interruption. Pakistan managed to win this game by 21 runs on the DLS method. Sri Lanka took on Bangladesh in their last game. Kusal Perera was dismissed for just four runs in the first over. They lost two more wickets before reaching 100 runs. Sadeera Samarawickrama made 41 runs before being dismissed. Angelo Mathews faced a rare "timed out" dismissal in the 25th over, and Charith Asalanka's fine knock of 108 runs helped Sri Lanka reach a total of 279 runs. Tanzim Hasan Shakib took three wickets on his World Cup debut. In their chase, Bangladesh lost two early wickets but had a crucial 169-run partnership between Shakib Al Hasan and Najmul Hossain Shanto. Mathews dismissed both, but it was too late. Bangladesh comfortably achieved the target of 280 runs with three wickets in hand in 41.1 overs. Dilshan Madushanka was Sri Lanka's top bowler with three wickets, while Maheesh Theekshana and Angelo Mathews took two wickets each.
Best economical pick – Sadeera Samarwickrama is the leading run-scorer in the tournament for Sri Lanka. He has made 372 runs in eight innings at an average of 62 and a strike rate of 102.47.
Top captains & vice captains – Rachin Ravindra could be the best batter in the clash between New Zealand and Sri Lanka. He is the Kiwis' leading run-scorer in the tournament, with 523 runs at an average of 74.71 and a strike rate of 107.39. He has scored three centuries and two half-centuries so far in the tournament. Dilshan Madhushanka is currently the leading wicket-taker in the ongoing ODI World Cup, having picked up 21 wickets at an excellent economy rate of 648. He is crucial for his side in most of Sri Lanka's games, despite their dismal outing so far in this competition.
Smart pick – Kane Williamson has managed to play just two games so far and has scored a half-century in both his innings. Williamson made 95 runs off 79 deliveries in his last outing against Pakistan.
Cautious Pick – Tom Latham has been dismissed for a single-digit score in two out of his last five outings and can be avoided for this game.
