After a thrilling Test series against England and Sri Lanka, the action for New Zealand now shifts to limited-overs cricket. The Black Caps will play a 3-match ODI series against Sri Lanka, starting on March 25 at Eden Park. The hosts will be without Kane Williamson, Tim Southee, Devon Conway, and Mitchell Santner due to IPL 2023. 

Meanwhile, Sri Lanka will be hoping for a better show in the limited overs series after a disappointing 0-2 loss in Tests. Despite missing some key players, New Zealand is expected to have the upper hand in the ODI series. They have a good track record against Sri Lanka in recent years and have been dominant in ODIs between the two teams.
