New Zealand vs Sri Lanka Live: Can the Lions roar again?

Sri Lanka’s performance in this tournament has been far from impressive. The controversy in the previous match against Bangladesh was all people have been talking about. In the match that Lanka eventually lost, Angelo Mathews was “timed out” as he did not come to bat before the scheduled time. Now, they have to put that controversy behind them and prove their true potential. They also need to win this match to finish in the Top 8 on the points table. Otherwise, they may not be able to take part in the Champions Trophy in 2025.
