New Zealand and Sri Lanka will both play their first matches of the Cricket World cup 2019 on Saturday and will look to begin their campaign on a winning note.

Considering the team form, New Zealand will go in as favourites for the match while if Sri Lanka manage to topple New Zealand, it will be considered as a huge upset.

New Zealand's bowling should dominate the bowling pick for Dream 11 while Kane Williamson as the main batsman and captain is an absolute no-brainer. Sri Lanka batsmen, however, might come handy and cheap. If you are still starting out with the fantasy cricket game, you can click here for a quick starter guide.
