Sri Lanka vs New Zealand – 2nd T20 – Preview, Team Prediction and Fantasy XI

In the 1st T20 international, the match was see-sawing between both teams but the visitors came out triumphant from the encounter. New Zealand won the match by 5 wickets after a solid effort from Ross Taylor, Colin De Grandhomme and Tim Southee.

Lasith Malinga and co. will be very disappointed with the loss. Sri Lanka couldn’t get the required momentum in the powerplay overs and once again their batting let them down, as it crumbled under pressure in the 2nd innings.

Pitch Report:

There is no rain in the forecast for this match at Pallekele, but with the high humidity, the pitch is expected to quicken up and help the batsmen. There will be some swing early on, but otherwise it is a pure batting surface.

Probable Playing XIs:

Sri Lanka: Kusal Mendis, Kusal Perera (wk), Avishka Fernando, Niroshan Dickwella, Dasun Shanaka, Isuru Udana, Shehan Jayasuriya, Akila Dananjaya, Wanindu Hasaranga, Lasith Malinga (C), Kasun Rajitha/Lahiru Kumara

New Zealand: Martin Guptill, Colin Munro, Tim Seifert (wk), Colin de Grandhomme, Ross Taylor, Daryl Mitchell, Mitchell Santner, Seth Rance/Todd Astle, Scott Kuggelejin, Tim Southee (C), Ish Sodhi
