SL vs NZ Match Prediction: New Zealand, despite winning the two games, is struggling due to multiple injuries to the players. They have brought in Hamish Rutherford to complete the xi. Also, the same pitch is going to be used. This means that the conditions will be slower and the Lankan spinners will come into play even more. This puts the hosts in the advantage.
