ICC World Cup 2019 | Sri Lanka's Ordinary Performance Leaves Twitter Disappointed

Sri Lanka were at the receiving end of a masterclass from the New Zealand bowlers as they suffered a massive 10-wicket loss in their 2019 World Cup opener at Cardiff.

The day started on a bad note for Sri Lanka with a heap of wickets falling within the first few overs, with Matt Henry doing the bulk of the damage.

While the ball was doing the talking, the bails also had a say. Dimuth Karunaratne found some luck when Trent Boult’s delivery grazed the off stump but the bails remained in their grooves.

The seamers continued to make inroads into the batting order. Sri Lankan captain held his end and remained unbeaten but his side were bundled out for 136.

Any hopes of an upset were squashed by the New Zealand openers as half-centuries from Martin Guptill and Colin Munro meant the Kiwis eased to a 10-wicket win.
