The finalists of the last season - Sri Lanka Legends will take on New Zealand Legends in the 16th match of the Road Safety World Series 2022 at Rajiv Gandhi International Cricket Stadium in Dehradun. New Zealand Legends are not getting enough opportunities to show their team’s strength due to the rain-affected games this season.

3 wins out of  3 games and Sri Lanka Legends have already placed themselves at the top of the points table with 6 points. New Zealand Legends have managed to win 1 game out of the 4 they played. With 2 games affected due to the rain, they are still in 4th place in the points table with 4 points from 4 games.

After defeating stronger teams like Australia, England, and South Africa, Sri Lanka Legends are looking confident in their approach where they want to fulfill their last year’s incomplete dream to lift the trophy. New Zealand Legends on the other side, have shown great character so far this season but due to unavoidable circumstances, they are losing momentum in the series.

New Zealand Legends Preview

New Zealand Legends will take on the undefeated Sri Lankan side in the upcoming match at Dehradun. After playing 4 matches so far this season, the Kiwis have managed to win just 1 game whereas they haven’t played 2 games due to the rain’s interference.

Kyle Mills’ spell of 2 wickets for 11 runs in 2 overs and Hamish Bennette’s 1 wicket for 20 runs in 3 overs led them to restrict Bangladesh legends to 98 runs in the only match which they could manage to win with the help of a brilliant chase. Dean Brownlie played a superb knock of 31 runs in 19 balls whereas captain Ross Taylor added his 30 runs from 17 balls while chasing 99 runs.

The team has a good depth in the batting as well as a bowling unit but tackling Srilankan in-formed batters who are thrashing bowlers so far this season, will be the big challenge for New Zealand’s bowling unit. They will try to put pressure on opponents' batters when they face table toppers on Saturday at Dehradun.

Key players:
Ross Taylor, Neil Broom, Dean Brownlie, Shane Bond.

New Zealand Legends Predicted Playing XI:

Anton Devcich, Jamie How, Dean Brownlie, Ross Taylor (c), Neil Broom, Gareth Hopkins (wk), Jacob Oram, Hamish Bennett, Kyle Mills, James Franklin, Shane Bond.

Sri Lanka Legends Preview

Sri Lanka Legends have managed to continue the good form of the past season as well where they defeated strong opponents like Australia, England, and South Africa in the first 3 matches. Now to maintain that unbeaten record, they will face New Zealand Legends in the next match at Dehradun on 24th September. 

While batting first against South Africa Legends in the last match, an early departure of in-formed Tillakaratne Dilshan was a big blow for the team. Upul Tharanga (scored 36 runs from 27 balls) and Dilshan Munaweera (scored 26 runs from 24 balls), took the charge in the middle overs to settle down the innings. Jeevan Mendis gave the finishing touch with his 43 runs from 27 balls to put the team's 165 runs on the board.

Nuwan Kulasekara’s 2 wickets for 33 runs in his 4 overs and an economical spell from Tillakaratne Dilshan along with Isuru Udana, both took 1 wicket each, helped the Srilankan side to restrict opponents to 154 runs and they registered a hat trick of wins in the league. Now with that momentum, they are eying on the 4th win of the season when they face New Zealand Legends in the next match.

Key players:
Tillakaratne Dilshan, Dilshan Munaweera, Upul Tharanga, Nuwan Kulasekara.

Sri Lanka Legends Predicted Playing XI:

Tillakaratne Dilshan (c), Dilshan Munaweera, Upul Tharanga (wk), Chamara Silva, Jeevan Mendis, Asela Gunaratne, Isuru Udana, Ishan Jayaratne, Sanath Jayasuriya, Chaturanga de Silva, Nuwan Kulasekara.
