New Zealand’s hopes of securing a place in the semi-finals of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2023 were significantly dampened after suffering their fourth successive loss in a row. As a result, they will now need to battle their way into the semi-finals, despite having a slight advantage over the hopeful teams of Pakistan and Afghanistan, thanks to their net run rate.
The New Zealand cricket team had an impressive start to the tournament by defeating England on the opening day, followed by three consecutive victories. However, their winning streak came to an end when they faced the host nation, India. Subsequently, they faced defeats against Australia, South Africa, and Pakistan, with the last loss occurring due to the DLS Method after the game was affected by rain. These losses have placed New Zealand in a precarious situation, and they must win their final game in the league stage to avoid the risk of missing out on the knockout stage.
On the other hand, Sri Lanka’s slim hopes of progressing further in the tournament were extinguished with a defeat against Bangladesh on November 6, 2023. This loss eliminated Sri Lanka from the race for the knockout stage. The Sri Lankan cricket team is currently undergoing changes and reforms within their cricket board. With no chances of advancing, they will now be playing for pride in their remaining matches.
