Pitch Condition: The new ball moved considerably for New Zealand (although was in the hands of two skilful bowlers) but a fast outfield and short boundaries means runs can also flow freely. University Oval is one the venues ideal for preserving wickets for a late-innings assault.
The one previous ODI between the teams was a 129-run win for Sri Lanka in the Asia Cup although Afghanistan restricted them to 253 for 6.
The 78 runs conceded by Nuwan Kulasekara (from eight overs) were the third most of his ODI career and all three have come since May 2014.
This World Cup was the first time since 1999 - when they lost to England - that Sri Lanka had not won their first game of the tournament, although that did includes wins against Bermuda (2007) and Canada (2011).
