New Zealand’s Cricket World Cup tournament had a very good start. Blackcaps had won the first four matches of the tournament but then the team had to face defeat in four consecutive matches. If the result of the match does not come today, then New Zealand’s problems will increase even more.
On the other hand, Sri Lanka has nothing left to lose. The team is already out of the race for the semi-finals of the World Cup 2023. Sri Lanka has played a total of eight matches so far in the tournament, in which the team has won only two matches. Kusal Mendis and company can also spoil New Zealand’s dream of playing semi-finals.
