History :
Sophia Gardens also known as the Cardiff Wales Stadium, is a cricket stadium in Cardiff, Wales. It is located in Sophia Gardens on the River Taff. It is home to Glamorgan County Cricket Club and is listed as an international Test cricket venue.Sophia Gardens has been an international cricket venue since 20 May 1999, when it played host to the 1999 Cricket World Cup match between Australia and New Zealand. From 2001 to 2012, the ground was a regular venue for One Day Internationals, hosting nine matches in 12 years, but it was not until 2006 that it hosted its first England match, the first match of the series against Pakistan on 30 August 2006. In 2012, the ground was named as one of three venues for the 2013 ICC Champions Trophy, along with The Oval and Edgbaston; it hosted five matches, including the opener between India and South Africa on 6 June 2013, and the semi-final between India and Sri Lanka on 20 June.On 11 April 2008, the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) announced that the venue would host a series of major Test matches over the next four years. It would host its first Test match on 8 July 2009 as the opening match of an Ashes series between England and Australia.

Preview :
New Zealand :
New Zealand made a good start against India in last warm-up match but they lost against west indies.They won match by 6 wickets and lost by 91 runs against west indies.New Zealand reached the semifinals six times but the trophy has eluded it.The Kiwis have been consistent performers at the World Cup, but a trophy has proved elusive. New Zealand has reached the semifinals on six occasions, and in the last edition, made a terrific run to the final.Their batting would revolve around three of their top four scoring the bulk of the runs. Since the end of the last World Cup, Ross Taylor has been in tremendous form, scoring close to 3000 runs at an average of nearly 70 with eight hundreds in the said period. Williamson and Guptill have also scored more than 2500 runs, with 14 hundreds between them and the onus will be on these three to serve as the backbone in the batting department.Kane Williamson, who showed tactical acumen to lead Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) to the Eliminator round in the recent Indian Premier League, is an able captain.

Trent Boult, the joint-highest wicket-taker at the 2015 World Cup (alongside Mitchell Starc), leads the attack and also he had good start in warm-up matches by taking 8 wickets.
His partners Tim Southee and Matt Henry have not been as menacing, but given the right conditions, they could prove to be a handful. Southpaw Mitchell Santner is the first-choice spinner, while leggie Ish Sodhi could be called to action if the pitch assists the spinners.

Probable XI :
Kane Williamson (c), Tom Blundell (wk), Trent Boult, Colin de Grandhomme, Lockie Ferguson, Martin Guptill, Matt Henry, Tom Latham (wk), Colin Munro, James Neesham, Henry Nicholls, Mitchell Santner, Ish Sodhi, Tim Southee (vc), Ross Taylor.

Sri Lanka :
New Zealand vs Sri Lanka 3rd Match Prediction in ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 on 1st June, 2019. Sri Lanka are going through a dismal patch in recent times. They were knocked out in the group stage of the Asia Cup and then were white-washed by New Zealand and South Africa. The Lankans recently beat Scotland to end a drought of ODI wins after eight consecutive defeats.It’s been almost three years since Sri Lanka have won a bilateral ODI series. Now, with a World Cup less than one weeks away, they will be starting afresh, under a new captain in Dimuth Karunaratne, seeking to familiarise themselves with English conditions.Sri Lankan selectors have loaded it with plenty of all-round options. Dimuth Karunaratne’s job will be to provide stability at the top and allow the natural stroke makers in the team – Kusal Mendis, Kusal Perera, Angelo Mathews and Thisara Perera – a free hand in boosting the scoring rate. However, the essence of having plenty of all-round options will always mean a lack of specialist bowling options in the team. This might come back to bite them, considering two of their league games are scheduled in Bristol, and they then travel north (Leeds and Chester-le-Street) for four games at venues which traditionally favor swing bowlers. It also ideally means this will be one team that has been set-up with an eye to chase down totals rather than setting them. Nuwan Pradeep and Suranga Lakmal are the key fast bowlers for sri lanks. They also made good strat in warm-up matches by taking 3 and 2 wickets respectively.

Probable XI :
Dimuth Karunaratne (c), Avishka Fernando, Lahiru Thirimanne, Angelo Mathews, Dhananjaya de Silva, Isuru Udana, Milinda Siriwardana, Thisara Perera, Jeevan Mendis, Kusal Perera (w), Kusal Mendis, Jeffrey Vandersay, Lasith Malinga, Suranga Lakmal, Nuwan Pradeep.
