New Zealand will take on Sri Lanka in Match 41 of the ODI World Cup 2023 at the M. Chinnaswamy Stadium, Bengaluru, on Thursday (9 October) afternoon.

They are in 4th place with 8 points and have the highest NRR among themselves, Pakistan, and Afghanistan. New Zealand lost the previous match against Pakistan despite scoring a massive 401. Kane Williamson returned in the last match and will likely play in this one.

Asalanka scored a fighting century, and Madushanka picked up 3 wickets with the ball. A win here will keep Sri Lanka in the hunt for the Champions Trophy qualification.
