Hagley Oval cricket stadium at Christchurch  will host the opening match of the ICC cricket world cup 2015 on Feb 14 Indian time and Feb 13 New Zealand time. Match will be played between Sri Lanka and New Zealand. For New Zealand its a home conditions advantage, however the Sri Lankan team has already spent some good time in New Zealand playing a test series so the team already has accumulated to the conditions here. You can watch the live socre of the match at the live scorebaord widget above. And in case you need a detailed ball by ball analysis please visit this post.

As far as world cup performance in concerned New Zealand has so far just made it once to semi finals as their best performance. Sri Lanka on the other hand has won the world cup once and they have featured in the final of last three ICC world cup tournaments. Thus the match is goind to be  a super entertainer.
