Home / Sports / Cricket News /  ICC cricket World Cup 2019: Consistent New Zealand face unsettled Sri Lanka

New Zealand are among the most consistent teams since 1975, but without a title to show for it. The closest they came was in 2015 when, after a spectacular run, they capitulated against Australia in the final.

In 1992, they were the best side on view, but were edged out in the semi-final by a resurgent Pakistan. Will this time be different?

They have batting heft and high quality pacers. Spin bowling is the weak link, though Santner and Sodhi would be handy.

Today’s match against an unsettled Sri Lankan team should provide a clue if they can go the distance.

Key Players: Williamson, Boult; Mathews, Malinga
