SL vs NZ 1st and only T20 Dream11 Team Playing11 Prediction and Match Preview


Match Preview

 

New Zealand reigned supreme in all three ODIs and defeated Sri Lanka in a set pattern. NZ batted first on all the occasions, raised a mammoth total and crushed Sri Lanka under the pressure of scoreboard with a good bowling performance. Now we shift to the only T20I.

The home team will be missing Captain Kane Williamson, he has been rested. Jimmy Neesham will not be available since he is injured.

 Still, NZ boasts of a solid lineup.Ross Taylor, Colin Munro and Martin Guptill demonstrated good form in the ODIs and will be key players here. Rest of the side has T20I experience as well.
Tim Southee will lead the team, while Scott Kuggeleijn receives a first call-up and Mitchell Santner and Henry Nicholls return to contention.

Sri Lanka will hope to sneak a win here as the shorter format arrives. With belligerent hitting, they tried their best in the ODIs but the middle order collapses let them down. They will sense a chance in the T20I. The likes of Lasith Malinga, Niroshan Dickwella and Thisara Perera will be the stars to look out for.
