New Zealand started this edition of the World Cup on a positive note after sealing a comfortable victory over Sri Lanka in the opening game of the tournament in front of their home fans.

The Kiwis were made to bat first by the 1996 World Cup winners and they went on to post a huge total of 331 runs. New Zealand's top order performed and they were well supported by Corey Anderson down the order, which helped them post the target for Sri Lanka.

The Lankans crumbled as they could manage only 233 runs before being bowled out, resulting in a 98-run victory for New Zealand. Brendon McCullum will be looking for the second win of the tournament on Tuesday.

Scotland are the minnows of this World Cup and they start the campaign against the co-host nation on Tuesday. Preston Mommsen's side will be hoping that having a New Zealand coach in Grant Bradburn could help them clinch an upset in Dunedin.

What They Say

Brendon McCullum (New Zealand captain): "We've seen already that the wickets in both Australia and New Zealand are pure wickets, so it allows good ball-striking and high scores to unfold. What that does is then, I guess, from a bowling point of view, you've got to make sure that when you have the opportunity you can attack because wickets are so key."

Preston Mommsen (Scotland captain): "Grant Bradburn has got huge experience with playing in New Zealand and coached probably a lot of the guys in that New Zealand team. He's given us some valuable insights in our preparation for the game tomorrow."
