NZ vs SL: The third match of ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 is between New Zealand and Sri Lanka which is scheduled today. The match will start at 3:00 PM IST, at 9:30 AM GMT on 1st June 2019. The venue of the match is at Sophia Gardens, Cardiff. In the previous head to head ODI series, New Zealand demolished Sri Lanka by a 3-0 clean sweep.
Sri Lanka had made a lot of changes to their squad before coming for the World Cup, including handing over the captaincy to Dimuth Karunaratne. Tom Latham has made an adequate recovery from his finger injury to slot into the middle-order and takes the gloves for New Zealand.
