The Sri Lanka Legends will take on the New Zealand Legends in the 16th match of the Road Safety World Series. Both teams enter this fixture after winning their previous games. The Sri Lankan team defeated the South Africa Legends by 11 runs, while the Kiwis registered a clinical eight-wicket win against the Bangladesh Legends.
The Sri Lanka legends have been one of the best performing in the tournament as they have won both their games. The Lankans took down South Africa Legends with an all-round performance. Last year’s finalists have two out of the top three run scorers in the tournament in Dilshan Munaweera and Tillakaratne Dilshan. Similarly, they also have Nuwan Kulasekara, who has been the highest wicket-taker in the tournament.
The New Zealand team has also improved immensely after a nine-wicket defeat against the South Africa Legends in their opening game as they came back to register an eight-wicket victory over Bangladesh. The Kiwis have a good bowling attack, with Kyle Mills, Hamish Bennett and James Franklin who were among the wickets over the first two games. Their batting lineup is led by captain Ross Taylor, Jamie How and Dean Brownlie who have scored runs across the fixtures.
