new zealand vs sri lanka head to head 1699431310

ODI World Cup 2023 NZ vs SL: The ODI World Cup match was played today between New Zealand and Sri Lanka. New Zealand won this match by 5 wickets. With this victory, India has reached the semi-finals.

On the other hand, this World Cup has been very bad for Sri Lanka. They have played 9 matches and won only 2 of them. They have lost 7 matches. The Sri Lankan team will now have to bear the brunt of this poor performance by being out of another major tournament.

Sri Lanka is not only out of the race for the World Cup semi-finals, but will also not be able to qualify for the Champions Trophy 2025. Had Sri Lanka remained at number one, it would have qualified for the Champions Trophy. 8 in the points table in the World Cup 2023, but after losing to New Zealand, this dream of the team is now over. Sri Lanka has played all 9 league matches in the World Cup and the team is ranked 9th in the points table with just 2 wins.

Now there is little hope left for the Sri Lankan team from the Pak-England match. If Pakistan beats England by a big margin, then England can reach 9th position and Sri Lanka can reach 8th position in terms of net run rate. This will increase Sri Lanka’s chances of qualifying for the Champions Trophy 2025.

Kiwi team won by 5 wickets
