On November 9, 2023, the 41st ICC Cricket World Cup match will take place at Bengaluru’s Chinnaswamy Stadium, featuring New Zealand and Sri Lanka.
New Zealand finds itself on a losing streak and is in dire need of a victory to secure a coveted top-four spot.
Meanwhile, Sri Lanka, although out of the semifinal race, is determined to clinch a win to remain in contention for the Champions Trophy.
Check the top three captain picks for the NZ vs SL clash.
Rachin Ravindra (NZ)
Rachin Ravindra has been a standout player for New Zealand in this World Cup. A pivotal top-order batsman, he pairs up with Conway as the opening batsman and comes into this match on the back of an impressive performance.
Ravindra recently showcased his prowess by scoring his second century of the tournament, amassing a remarkable 108 runs from a mere 94 balls. His consistency is underscored by his impressive tally of 523 runs at a staggering average of 74.71.
As an aggressive left-handed batsman, Ravindra’s ability to anchor the innings and score briskly makes him an invaluable addition to any fantasy team.
Kane Williamson (NZ)
The captain of the New Zealand team, Kane Williamson, is a cricketing stalwart known for his exceptional batting skills and tactical acumen. Williamson’s recent performances have been nothing short of stellar.
Despite nursing a thumb injury, he has played two games, delivering half-centuries in both. His most recent innings against Pakistan saw an unbeaten 95 runs, where he displayed his trademark elegance and resilience.
Williamson’s knack for anchoring the innings and steering his team through challenging situations makes him a captaincy contender for any fantasy team.
Dilshan Madushanka (SL)
Dilshan Madushanka, the Sri Lankan sensation, stands out as an instrumental player for the team. His impact in the World Cup, particularly with the ball, has been substantial.
Currently leading the wicket-takers chart, Madushanka has claimed a remarkable 21 wickets. What’s more impressive is his bowling average of 22.23, reflecting his consistency in dismantling opposition batting line-ups.
As a genuine wicket-taking threat, Madushanka’s contribution as a captain in a fantasy team cannot be overlooked.
