In some good news, the weather forecast in Sydney is absolutely perfect for this clash. So, there is no need to check rain radars, precipitation levels, forecasts and other weather features that have been quite prominent in this T20 World Cup so far.

The cricket itself has been enthralling. The last match was one of the all-time classics, and Sri Lanka will be seeking to put one on New Zealand as Dasun Shanaka’s team aims to keep their Semi Final hopes alive. Kane Williamson’s team, on the other hand, will finally line up, one week after their perfect display against Australia on this ground.

On paper, this looks to be a big test for Sri Lanka’s depleted attack, struck down by another injury in this tournament. Binura Fernando was the latest to suffer an unfortunate injury, as the Lions fought hard against Australia in Perth but were undone by Marcus Stoinis brilliance. New Zealand have a number of players who are capable of going big, so the challenge for the Sri Lankans will be to find early wickets and continue building pressure.

For New Zealand, a win here puts them on the brink of the Semi Finals thanks to their outstanding net run rate. Finn Allen and Devon Conway looks a magnificent opening partnership. Kane Williamson and Glenn Phillips have more in their arsenal. Jimmy Neesham can strike the ball miles. And, that’s before we mention the New Zealand attack. When a World Cup comes around, New Zealand can never be counted out, and they proved why once again last week in their 89-run drubbing of Australia.

Key Players to Watch/Key Stats

  • Can Wanindu Hasaranga bounce back after a tough night against Australia? The legspinner still has the equal-most wickets in this World Cup, with nine scalps at an average of 15.66 and economy of 7.42.
  • Maheesh Theekshana will be tasked with keeping the NZ top order quiet. He is conceding just 6.16 per over in this tournament, with eight wickets to his name in five matches. He could enjoy the dryish SCG pitch.
