EDGBASTON – Disgruntled New Zealand will take on shaky Sri Lanka in the fourth warm-up match ahead of the main round of ICC Champions Trophy 2017 on Tuesday, May 30, at Edgbaston Cricket Ground, Birmingham.
The game is scheduled to begin at 10:30 local time (09:30 GMT | 14:30 PKT).
The game is equally important for New Zealand and Sri Lanka, as both sides have lost their first practice match miserably. In order to gell up the teams, a win is a must for both sides.
NZ lost their first game to India, which was a rain-hit game as was last game between Pakistan and Australia. While Sri Lanka had failed to defend 328 runs against Australia in their first warm-up game.
The rain is causing a great threat to the major ICC tournament, may it does not disturb the main round of CT17, as it did in the warm-ups.
