NZ vs SL Playing 11 Match 41 ICC World Cup 2023 

One of the most important matches will be played between New Zealand and Sri Lanka. The results might affect other teams as well. New Zealand is looking to qualify for the Semi-Final. On the other hand, Sri Lanka’s qualification for the Champions Trophy 2025 Pakistan is also at stake. Pakistan and Afghanistan will be watching this match closely because they are also in the race for the Semi-Finals.

The New Zealand team wants to win to qualify for the Semi-Final without defending other teams’ results. In case they lose they will be praying for Afghanistan and Pakistan to lose their matches too. So, even if the Black Caps lose they can still qualify for the knockouts of the mega event. 

Team combinations for both teams will be very important. Sri Lanka is looking to finish the tournament on a high with a win and also make sure of their qualification for the ICC Champions Trophy 2025. On the other hand, New Zealand would love to beat Sri Lanka to play India in the Semi-Final.
