Sri Lanka's recent ODI record has been very poor and its bowling is quite ordinary
New Zealand has more experience, more power in its batting, and a much better bowling attack
New Zealand is the 4th ranked ODI side in the world while Sri Lanka is 9th
PITCH AND CONDITIONS
New Zealand vs Sri Lanka ICC World Cup 2019 match is going to be played at Sophia Gardens, Cardiff. A cloudy day has been forecast for match day in Cardiff. That usually means some movement with the new ball and so winning the toss to make the most of the conditions will be critical.
The pitch at Sophia Gardens is good for batting and we think it should flatten out after the first few overs and favor the batsmen. The spinners find the going tough at the venue and that is something that could help New Zealand.
