Sri Lanka face a daunting task as they now need to win to draw the series and keep their hopes of qualifying for the World Cup alive. The Dasun Shanaka-led side were completely blown away in the first ODI, which they lost by a mammoth 198-run margin. The second ODI, which was washed out dented Sri Lanka’s World Cup hopes further and now, they have no option but to beat New Zealand in the series finale on Friday, March 31, at the Seddon Park in Hamilton. On form, New Zealand start as overwhelming favourites, but Sri Lanka have players who can spring a surprise. ‘Crossing All Bridges’ Virat Kohli Shares Picture of Himself, Wife Anushka Sharma and Daughter Vamika From Their Rishikesh Trip.

Finn Allen (51), Rachin Ravindra (49) and Daryl Mitchell (47) were the principal contributors for New Zealand with the bat in the first ODI as the Kiwis were bowled out for 274 in 49.3 overs. But a fiery 5/31 from Henry Shipley meant Sri Lanka could only manage 78 runs in 19.5 overs. Coming to the third game, Sri Lanka need a much better batting effort if they hope to level this series. A lot of Sri Lankan hopes would rest on veteran Angelo Matthews, who could manage just 18 runs in the 1st ODI. Skipper Shanaka will also hope to bounce back from his golden duck. Shakib Al Hasan Becomes Highest Wicket-Taker in Men's T20Is, Achieves Feat With Five-Wicket Haul During BAN vs IRE 2nd T20I 2023.
