New Zealand vs Sri Lanka Head to Head Record in ODIs: The SportsRush present before you the Head to Head record for NZ vs SL.
The third match of the ongoing ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 will be played between New Zealand and Sri Lanka at Cardiff tomorrow. While New Zealand lost their last warm-up match against West Indies, Sri Lanka ended up losing both their matches before the league stage.
New Zealand would still be banking on their past record and victory against India in the warm-up match. The Black Caps would be looking to start their World Cup campaign on a winning note against an unsettled Sri Lankan squad.
Positive signs for incumbent keeper Tom Latham who was back fully training today – catching balls at full pace and batting in the nets. Fingers crossed for Saturday 👌 #CWC19 #BACKTHEBLACKCAPS pic.twitter.com/Df41bJ9Kn8
