New Zealand no longer go into this World Cup tournament as dark horses. They have the advantage of home conditions, and will also carry their confidence from the 4-2 series win right before the World Cup. Sri Lanka, on the other hand, are in indifferent form having lost their warm-up matches again South Africa and Zimbabwe.
On their day however there is little differentiating the two teams, and their record is a clear reflection of it. The two teams have met each other 89 times, with the Kiwis winning 41 matches, while the Lankans winning 40.
