Team News:

New Zealand(NZ):

Tom Latham has made an adequate recovery from his finger injury to slot into the middle-order and take the gloves. Williamson reckoned Colin Munro was “fine” and with Henry Nicholls battling an injury, should take up the opening slot uncontested. New Zealand love battering sub-continent teams with pace and seam and could sacrifice one spinner in the XI. Tim Southee is battling a non-serious niggle of his own, and should he get ruled out on the morning of the game, New Zealand can play both spinners and trust all-rounders Neesham and de Grandhomme to bowl after Boult and Lockie Ferguson.

Probable XI:

Martin Guptill, Colin Munro, Kane Williamson (c), Ross Taylor, Tom Latham (wk), James Neesham, Colin de Grandhomme, Mitchell Santner, Tim Southee/Ish Sodhi, Trent Boult, Lockie Ferguson

Sri Lanka(SL):

Sri Lanka’s possibilities of structuring a XI are limitless. They played Lahiru Thirimanne in the lower-order middle-order in the Scotland ODI, but it is evident that No.6 is far from ideal for the southpaw. Karunaratne all but confirmed that young Avishka Fernando will miss out, keeping Thirimanne at the top.

Kusal Perera will take the gloves and play in the middle-order. Jeffrey Vandersay bowled through Sri Lanka’s optional net session on match eve and should join spin-bowling all-rounders Dhananjaya and Jeevan Mendis in a troika. Isuru Udana’s recent form will force a toss up between Nuwan Pradeep and Suranga Lakmal for the second seamer’s slot.

Probable XI:

Dimuth Karunaratne (c), Lahiru Thirimanne, Kusal Mendis, Kusal Perera (wk), Angelo Mathews, Dhananjaya de Silva, Jeevan Mendis, Thisara Perera, Isurua Udana, Nuwan Pradeep/Suranga Lakmal, Lasith Malinga

What to Expect:

Cardiff experienced a wet and cold spell since the Bank Holiday Monday but the weather cleared up two days out from the game. Saturday is forecast to be the warmest day of the week, with a high of 20 degrees Celsius and only a 10% chance of rain. As in the India-Bangladesh warm-up game, conditions will assist seamers with the morning start. The pitch traditionally slows down a touch through the game and could bring the spinners into the game in the afternoon.

Teams:

New Zealand Squad:

Kane Williamson (c), Tom Latham (wk), Martin Guptill, Colin Munro, Ross Taylor, James Neesham, Colin de Grandhomme, Mitchell Santner, Ish Sodhi, Tim Southee, Trent Boult, Lockie Ferguson, Matt Henry, Henry Nicholls, Tom Blundell

Sri Lanka Squad:

Dimuth Karunaratne (c), Kusal Perera (wk), Lahiru Thirimanne, Kusal Mendis, Angelo Mathews, Dhananjaya de Silva, Jeevan Mendis, Thisara Perera, Suranga Lakmal, Isuru Udana, Lasith Malinga, Jeffrey Vandersay, Milinda Siriwardana, Nuwan Pradeep, Angelo Perera, Avishka Fernando
