CWC 2019: New Zealand defeat Sri Lanka without losing a wicket
A SHORT PREVIEW OF WHAT HAPPENED
All things considered, it was a fixture, yet it wasn’t a match. New Zealand saw a green surface, went for line and length, and held their slip gets. Sri Lanka, the most established group in the competition, played like tenderfoots, getting into a respectable position at 46 for 1 and afterward discarding everything to droop to 60 for 5, with Matt Henry, the player of the match, grabbing 3 for 29.
A fifty association kept the Sri Lankans in it for some time, yet 136 wasn’t even a Twenty20 score and the NZ openers thumped the keeps running off with a solitary stratagem, going down the track to discredit the development.
DKODING | Matt Henry | CWC19
Henry picked up the first three – Lahiru Thirimanne (4), Kusal Perera (29) and Kusal Mendis – as Sri Lanka were left wobbling at 46 for 3.
DKODING | Colin Munro| CWC19
DKODING | Martin Guptill | CWC19
Colin Munro and Martin Guptill together stole the show
Both batsmen scored briskly as the conditions eased out just a touch, and struck half-centuries to build some confidence going ahead in the tournament. While the Sri Lankan pacers found more swing in comparison to their opponents, their accuracy wasn’t up to the mark to trouble the New Zealand openers. Guptill and Munro stitched together their highest opening stand
The Lone Warrior
DKODING | Dimuth Karunaratne | CWC19
Opener Dimuth Karunaratne accomplished the uncommon accomplishment of bringing his bat through a Cricket World Cup innings, however, his colleagues offered little obstruction as New Zealand rejected Sri Lanka for 136 in 29.2 overs
The whole batting line up of Sri Lanka except Dimuth Karunaratne was a big miss today. It would be unfair to even name one player. Malinga gave his best but it was insufficient
They all disappointed big time
The Game Changing Moment
When Kane Williamson took the review on Second Ball
It was Kane Williamson hawk-eye which set up the momentum for the Black Caps.
Sri Lanka – The Lankan boys need to set their grip right in a 45 long day World Cup it is only going to be difficult from here
New Zealand – The Black Caps were not tested much today but they were scintillatingly amazing in all aspects.
To Sum up in less words :
Black Caps kept Sri Lankans starving
