SL vs NZ Dream11 Grand League Match | Sri Lanka vs New Zealand 2nd T20I

After their emphatic outing in the world cup, New Zealand is now set out to lock horns with Sri Lanka in a three-match T20I series of which the first T20I was won by the world cup finalists by 5 wickets. Despite an amazing knock by Mendis of 79 runs, the hosts were outdone by their opponents.  New Zealand held their own by solid innings made by Grandhomme (44) and Taylor (48). The next game seems to be a very scintillating one. Let’s take a look at what could be the IN-A vs SA-A Dream11 Match Prediction as the tournament comes to an end.

Head to Head (last five matches)

Team news:

  • The Lankans could use a change in their squad as they would like to get a sure shot win.
  • Lockie Ferguson will not play in the rest of the series with a fractured thumb.
  • Seth Rance was on the expensive side in the last game but since they don’t have many options in the bowling department he will continue his attack.
  • Jayasuriya conceded 10 runs for his side in the only over he bowled being wicketless he could likely be swapped.
  • Rajitha was also an expensive player for the Lankans he could be replaced with Lahiru Kumara who was on the bench in the previous game.
