New Zealand vs Sri Lanka T20, Match Prediction

New Zealand vs Sri Lanka T20 Match Prediction
New Zealand vs Sri Lanka

It’s down to the one last contest for Sri Lanka before they leave New Zealand. The visitors are yet to taste a victory on the tour as the hosts comprehensively won both Test and ODI series. The 2 sides will now clash in a one-off T20 at the Eden Park, Auckland. Keep reading to find out the New Zealand vs Sri Lanka T20 Match Prediction.

The Kiwis have been instrumental in all 3 departments in the series so far. They will now be led by Tim Southee in the T20 in the absence of Kane Williamson. All the victories for the hosts have been dominant so far. They won’t leave any stone unturned in trying to triumph the last game as well. Their batsmen scored in excess of 300 in all the 3 ODIs and chances are that they would launch again on the high-scoring venue of Auckland.

However, it’s the chance for the visitors to restore some pride. There have been some individual flashes of brilliance on the tour so far. Yet, they didn’t put together a team performance that would yield them a victory. But it’s their best chance to win in the shortest format as the squad possesses some talent for the setup. However, it’s still going to be an uphill task beating New Zealand in their own backyard and in their preferred mode of cricket.
