New Zealand vs Sri Lanka 2nd ODI Match Prediction
New Zealand vs Sri Lanka

The venue of Bay Oval, Mount Maunganui remains the same for the next game. Keep reading to find out the New Zealand vs Sri Lanka 2nd ODI Match Prediction.

New Zealand was on a rampage in the first game after winning the toss. Martin Guptill slammed a brilliant 138. The fifties from captain Kane Williamson and Ross Taylor gave a good company that laid a good foundation for a big score. James Neesham then provided the finishing touch with a knock of 47 from 13 balls. He struck Thisara Perera for 5 consecutive sixes that raised the total to 371/7.

In reply, the Sri Lankan openers provided a great start by adding 119 runs. But once they got out, the chase lost the zing. Kusal Perera was the lone warrior from that point onward. He made 102 runs but struggled for partners at the other end. Despite a fighting effort, Sri Lanka fell short by 45 runs. The hosts now have a crucial 1-0 lead in the 3-match series. They would most likely seal the series in the 2nd ODI itself.
