BAN VS NZ ICC WC 2019 | Bangladesh VS New Zealand ODI ICC CRICKET WORLD CUP 2019 PREVIEW
Ask any cricket watcher or analyst about who the ‘dark horse’ is for the cricket world cup 2019 and there is a good chance New Zealand will be mentioned. The Kiwis are a very good ODI side that is capable of beating any other side on its day.
New Zealand was beaten 4-1 by India in New Zealand, however, they have done much better while playing in their own conditions before that series. Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Pakistan, and West Indies were all beaten easily without losing a single match.
New Zealand even managed to win two matches against England but lost the series 3-2.
New Zealand has a very strong batting lineup, easily better than Sri Lanka’s.
This is a top-7 where there is plenty of power, proven ability to score centuries, and most of the players are in good form. Ross Taylor is in the best ODI form of his life and will be looking to make a huge impact on the cricket world cup 2019 while Kane Williamson is always in the conversation as one of the best batsmen in the world.
The slot for the spinner will be a choice between Santner and Ish Sodhi. Wrist spinners may be the fashion but we expect Mitchell Santner to be picked ahead of Sodhi.
This is a New Zealand squad that has all bases covered and is experienced enough to know what it takes to win on the big stage.
No other team has had a more difficult build-up to CWC 2019 than Sri Lanka. The side has changed captains, made wholesale changes to their lineup, lost tournaments, dropped in rankings, and then repeated the whole process once again.
As a result, it is Dimuth Karunaratne that is going to be leading the Sri Lankan team for the ICC World Cup 2019. He will have some new and inexperienced names to call upon mixed with some of the familiar names we have seen over the years.
On paper, this Sri Lanka side cannot be termed as weak like a team like Ireland or Scotland. It is, however, one of the weakest squad’s in this edition of the cricket world cup and most teams will be expected to beat it easily.
The best chance that Sri Lanka has to win is to hope that one or more of its batsmen have the tournament of their dreams. That is the only way the weaknesses in its fielding and bowling will be covered.
The Oval, currently referred to for sponsorship purposes as the Kia Oval, is an international cricket ground in Kennington, in the London Borough of Lambeth, in south London. The Oval has been the home ground of Surrey County Cricket Club since it was opened in 1845.
