New Zealand had been the most successful team in recent ICC tournaments. They are ranked at number four position in the ranking. The conditions where they are playing this big event of cricket are not much different from their home conditions. They had beaten Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Pakistan, and West Indies were all beaten easily without losing a single match in these conditions. They have a good chance to win the crown of cricket for this world cup edition. They also managed to win out of five matches played against England recently. New Zealand has a very strong batting line up than Sri Lanka. They have very good ODI players like Colin de Grandhomme, Jimmy Neesham, Colin Munro, Martin Guptill, Kane Williamson, Ross Taylor, and Tom Latham. These players have plenty of power and hitting capability. They also have an option to include Henry Nicholls at the top of the order in place of Colin Munro. Ross Taylor is the best ODI player and he is in excellent form these days. He is looking to make a huge impact on the cricket world cup. They also have the best ODI bowlers like Lockie Ferguson, Trent Boult, and Matt Henry in their side.
Sri Lanka team had made many changes before this big event of cricket. They also had changed their captain for this tournament. Now Dimuth Karunaratne is going to be leading the side for this big tournament. Sri Lanka has come new and some experienced players in the side. Sri Lankan batting will be depended on Kusal Perera, Angelo Matthews, Lahiru Thirimanne Karunaratne, and Kusal Mendis. Avishka Fernando is the youngest players in their side who got a chance for this big event of cricket. Sri Lanka has a lot of experienced bowlers in their side. Suranga Lakmal, Nuwan Pradeep, and Lasith Malinga will be handling their bowling department. They have the spin bowlers like Jeevan Mendia and Milind Siriwardene who are no much experienced and they are not considered as world class bowlers. When we compare the Sri Lankan team with other teams on papers, they are not a best and attacking team who can win against strong sides of this tournament. Another weak point for this team is that they are the worst fielding side in the world. They are much depended to their batting department to win against any team in this big tournament.
