The match starts at 10:30 AM local time (9:30 AM GMT) (3:00 PM IST).
Earlier this year, New Zealand and Sri Lanka faced off in a bilateral series where the former came out trumps by a margin of 3-0. The two teams are set to lock horns again, this time in the 2019 World Cup at the Sophia Gardens in Cardiff. The Kiwis had a bittersweet journey in the warm-ups. First, Kane Williamson & Co rolled over tournament favourites India and then were easily beaten by the Windies.

Over the years, the track has helped the team, batting second. 14 out of the 20 ODIs at this venue were won by the chasing teams. However, the last five completed One-Dayers at the very venue were won by the team, batting first. Hence, it won’t be a surprise if teams opt to bat first.
Fortunately, there are no chances of a downpour. The atmosphere is expected to be nice and cool with the temperature around the 22 degree Celsius. The humidity will be in the 50s. Clouds will be there throughout the encounter, but it won’t be a worrying factor.
