New Zealand play Sri Lanka in Bengaluru, with a win for the Black Caps securing them a place in the semi-finals.


This is, in effect, a quarter-final for the Black Caps. There is a world where they can lose and still make it through, but it’s not one they’ll want to rely on, with a win for either Afghanistan or Pakistan in their final group matches meaning they will advance instead of them.

It didn’t have to be this way for the Kiwis. Four wins from their first four matches meant they had one foot already in the next round, but four losses on the bounce has led to a high-pressure encounter against a Sri Lanka team who have suffered a poor tournament and won just two matches.

New Zealand have a number of injury concerns, with Kyle Jamieson expected to make his first appearance in the tournament after fellow bowler Matt Henry left the squad due to injury.

On paper, the Kiwis are favourites and should win. But pressure does funny things in sport, and it is up to the Black Caps to rise to the occasion. has rounded up everything you need to know about how to watch New Zealand v Sri Lanka on TV and online, as well as our pick for key player to watch.

New Zealand v Sri Lanka key player to watch

Glenn Phillips (New Zealand)

The Kiwis XI hinges on Phillips's ability to offer with both the bat and the ball. Such are the injury troubles that New Zealand are suffering from, in their last fixture Phillips was selected as one of their five frontline bowlers, on top of batting in the top six.

He has had success against Sri Lanka in the past, and his country will need him to find that form again.
