New Zealand was dominant in the Test series. But Sri Lanka didn’t give up easily. The visitors fought in the first game and forced it to a draw. However, the Kiwis pressed the accelerator and despite the Sri Lanka resistance, won the Test to clinch the series. The hosts have had a pretty good run at home in ODI cricket. Hence, they would enter the series with the tag of being the favorites.

The venue for the first match has hosted just 5 ODIs so far. It had hosted the last ODI three years back which had also involved these 2 teams. New Zealand had won that game easily by 36 after posting 294. We can expect another high-scoring encounter especially if the Kiwis bat first. It will be a big test for the visitors once again.
