New Zealand

New Zealand have kicked off the ODI series with a bang. Soon after the whitewash in the Test series, the hosts outplayed the visitors in the opening match of the ODI series. Though they fielded a new-look team with most of their senior players rested, New Zealand still managed to gain the upper hand in the contest.

Chad Bowes made his ODI debut and opened the innings alongside Finn Allen. NZ vs SL, It wasn’t a remarkable debut as the Canterbury batsman was out for just 14 off 15 balls. Skipper Tom Latham struggled to get going. He was part of a 39-run stand for the 4th wicket though he scored just 5 off 17 balls. Nevertheless, he is a key player for NZ in the middle order.

New Zealand Playing XI

Finn Allen, Chad Bowes, Will Young, Daryl Mitchell, Tom Latham (c & wk), Glenn Phillips, Rachin Ravindra, Henry Shipley, Ish Sodhi, Matt Henry, Blair Tickner

Sri Lanka  

Dasun Shanaka will be furious with the result of the 1st ODI in Auckland, a venue that is known to be favourable for chasing. The skipper himself was out for a golden duck as the team bundled up for just 76 runs. The bowlers did a fine job with Chamika Karunaratne and Lahiru Kumara finishing with an economy of below 5 r.p.o.

Kasun Rajitha also managed to pick up a couple of wickets at an economy of just above 5. NZ vs SL, What Sri Lanka will be looking for is a complete turnaround in the batting department. And it will start with Pathum Nissanka at the top followed by Kusal Mendis at number 3. These two batters are key to a comeback and Mendis, in particular, needs to play a big knock to take Sri Lanka to a competitive total.

Sri Lanka Playing XI

Nuwanidu Fernando, Pathum Nissanka, Kusal Mendis (wk), Charith Asalanka, Angelo Mathews, Dasun Shanaka (c), Wanindu Hasaranga, Chamika Karunaratne, Kasun Rajitha, Lahiru Kumara, Dilshan Madushanka
