Sri Lanka vs New Zealand Live Score: Following NZ's early strikes, Perera leads SL's powerplay counterpunch.

Kane Williamson, the captain of New Zealand, won the toss and elected to bowl first at the Chinnaswamy stadium, where rain is expected throughout the match. This might be it. New Zealand and Sri Lanka are competing in opposite half of the table, and the outcome of this match will have far-reaching consequences for both. 

New Zealand is hoping to put Pakistan and Afghanistan at bay in the battle to the semi-finals, while Sri Lanka is hoping to qualify for the 2025 Champions Trophy. However, both of their efforts may be weakened, if not drowned out, by relentless rains that has overwhelmed Bengaluru for the past couple of days.

Rain is expected to have a huge impact on this game because parts of the city are under yellow alert until November 10. In the worst-case situation, there could be a washout because four thunderstorms are expected during the day. The city has had significant rain over the last four to five days, forcing the MET department to declare a yellow notice beginning Monday. A yellow signal is issued when the daily rainfall totals between 64.5 mm and 115. 5 mm.

The fact that Sri Lanka lost to Bangladesh by three wickets in a game fraught with controversy has thrown their campaign into disarray.
