Dream 11 Fantasy cricket tips for Sri Lanka vs New Zealand
Wicketkeepers for SL vs NZ Dream 11 Team
Both BJ Watling and Niroshan Dickwella had a decent game in Galle. Both scored a half-century each and managed to do well with the gloves. The trend should continue in Colombo too.
Captain / Vice-Captain for SL vs NZ Dream 11 Team
Dimuth Karunaratne’s return to form makes him the apt candidate for captaincy’s job. Kane Williamson had an off game as he failed in both innings. But a player of his calibre won’t be quiet for long.
Batsmen for SL vs NZ Dream 11 Team
Apart from Williamson, Tom Latham will be a crucial batsman for the visitors as he has decent technique against spin. The Sri Lankan captain will once again be the backbone of the team’s batting. The other opener Lahiru Thirimanne also is in good touch.
All-rounders for SL vs NZ Dream 11 Team
Mitchell Santner failed to bag a single wicket in the last game. But he would learn from the mistakes and hope to come out stronger. Dhananjaya de Silva becomes a vital batsman for his skills with the ball as well as bat.
Bowlers for SL vs NZ Dream 11 Team
Suranga Lakmal and Akil Dananjaya were the major destroyers for Sri Lanka in the last game. Once again, they will be the leaders. Ajaz Patel had a pretty good outing in the last game and he remains the go-to bowler for New Zealand.
