CWC 2019 Match 4: SRI vs NZ Pre Match Analysis

Till now, New Zealand did not win any of the ICC cricket world cup. Whereas, Sri Lanka did it 23 years before at Gaddafi stadium Lahore under the captaincy of Arjuna Ranatunga.

The Final of ICC cricket world cup 1996 was played between Sri Lanka and Australia. Mark Taylor led the Australian Team in 1996 despite his explosive batting in the world cup final, he could not make it worthwhile.

Sri Lanka has recently visited South Africa in order to play Test, ODI, and T20 series. Earlier, in the Test Series, Lankan Cricket Team Defeated Africa in their Home ground. Despite considered as the underdogs they created the history as none of the other Asian team have ever defeated South Africa on their home soil in Test series.

Everyone was expecting Sri Lanka to be defeated very badly as Sri Lanka have many new young Players with No Experience, but all those were come out of the Box and smashes the African Team in Every Department.

Despite the momentum which they got in Test Series, Sri Lanka could not make it worthwhile in the ODI series. Although the heroic victory in Test Series gave their youngsters A ray of hope to keep the Momentum up in ODI series.

The incredible performance of the African team did not let them lift the ODI trophy, consequently Lankan Team whitewashed by African on Africa’s Home ground. They did not even give a tough time to prove their credibility which will be a very dangerous indication for their Team management as only 2 months left in the starting of the Mega Event.

On the Other side, New Zealand is looking even better than the Lankan Team. The aggressive approach they have adopted for the last 2 years, is now become a vital feature of this Team.

In addition to that, they have the ruthless bowling attack to destroy any batting line up on their day. Although since the last 2 years they are lacking an incredible finisher, for now, they have the players like Corey Anderson who gained the popularity for his big hitting in the short format of Cricket. Due to which, New Zealand Management will heavily rely on Grandhome, Neesham and Anderson by giving them free hands to make big hitting worthwhile.

Their recent performance is indicating that they will do something extraordinary in the world cup, but we have seen them already when it comes to the knock out round, we tend to be surprised.

Recently New Zealand has defeated Bangladesh on their home soil. Whereas, New Zealand cricket Team were defeated by India in their Home Ground by 4-1. Though have been defeated by No 1 ODI Team, still New Zealand cricket team is capable of doing something exceptional.

Recently, many former cricketers and Experts have labeled New Zealand as favorite to lift the World Cup trophy. Kiwi’s reached in the final of ICC cricket world cup 2015, but unfortunately, they couldn’t chase their first ICC cricket world cup trophy and got crumbled by Australia. But their explosive batting line and ruthless bowling attack have enough potential to make a strong and worthy come back as they did it against Bangladesh with an immense margin.

Despite the retirement of Some Key Players including Brendon McCullum, kayle Mills, and Daniel Vettori New Zealand have acquired some talented champs like Guptill, Neesham, Grandhome, Williamson, and Boult. These players led the New Zealand Team to the first ICC world cup final in 2015 and now again looking in great touch to shatter the opponents.

Versatility has always been the feature of this Team as they have acquired some extraordinary all-rounder since last 3 years.

According to the above-mentioned Results of previous encounters, we have seen, New Zealand has always been a tough side for Sri Lanka because of the fierce pace attack of the Kiwi’s, especially on fast pitches.

Due to the Lack of experience and potential in the young side, it seems difficult for Sri Lanka to eradicate their deficiencies. This time Sri Lanka is Far behind then New Zealand as they did not Perform well in recent series including African and Australian series.

As they are undergoing from a bad time. In the last three Years, they did not produce the quality players to backed up Sangakkara and Jayawardene, which can be a serious problem in the coming World Cup.

Whereas, New Zealand cricket team has the potential and enough experience to take over Sri Lanka easily. They have revamped their approach as many of their youngsters have groomed themselves in a very short period of time, which is a clear indication of how much dedication they have brought to their Game.
