Dream 11 Fantasy cricket tips for Sri Lanka vs New Zealand
Wicketkeeper for SL vs NZ Dream 11 Team
Kusal Perera will be the key man for the hosts as he can blast his way to a quick score and give the team a good start. Tim Seifert is guaranteed of a place in the XI and he has shown in the past that he can be a big striker.

Batsmen for SL vs NZ Dream 11 Team
Sri Lanka’s batting will rest on the shoulders of Avishka Fernando and Kusal Mendis. These 2 right-handers can build the innings with their steady heads. Now that Kane Williamson is not there for this series, it puts onus on Ross Taylor to lead the way with the bat.

Dasun Shanaka is a useful all-rounder who can bowl medium pace and give you the handy runs down the order. Mitchell Santner will be crucial especially if the pitch offers some turn.
