NZ vs SL Dream11 Prediction

Black Caps, gearing up for their Thursday’s World Cup clash against Sri Lanka, would want to secure their most needed 2 points at Bangalore’s Chinnaswamy Stadium. On the other hand, the Srilankans are officially knocked out of the tournament after a defeat against Bangladesh in Delhi.

Another match in Bengaluru that has a rain threat. The weather forecast says there can be showers at the start of the match. But it doesn’t look like the match would get abandoned. We might see some over-reduction there.

Let’s take a look at our NZ vs SL Dream11 Prediction and fantasy cricket preview for this game.

NZ vs Sri Lanka, Match 41 of ICC Men’s World Cup 2023

9 November, 2 PM IST

Chinnaswamy Stadium, India

NZ vs SL Dream11 Prediction

Sri Lanka, coming from back to back defeats, have nothing to lose for them now. On the other side, New Zealand have also faced 4 back to back losses after a blockbuster start in this tournament.

The Srilankan side, at best, could play a spoiler for the opponent. And New Zealand, with no option but to win, would want to secure their spot in the semis by winning this knockout match.

Sri Lanka – LLWWL

Chinnaswamy Stadium Pitch Report

It’s a batting paradise. Wherever a batter hits, he gets runs with a fast outfield. Initially, pacers get some help though. But when the wicket gets old, spinners might come into the game. Rain can interrupt the match. Consequently, it will be easier to chase here.

Last result at the venue

NZ – 401/6 (Pacers – 5w, Spinners – 1w)

PAK – 200/1 (25.3/50 overs) (Pacers – 1w, Spinners – 0w)

Pakistan won by 21 runs – DLS Method

Who will win today’s World Cup 2023 match?

  • In the last 5 ODI matches, New Zealand has a lead of 4-0 over Sri Lanka.

Stats might showcase back to back losses for New Zealand. But they were so close to victory. They even lost after scoring 383 & 401. Srilankan’s batting needs to be stronger compared to the Kiwis’ bowling lineup. It is expected that New Zealand will win this match.
