SL vs NZ 2nd T20I | Today match prediction and betting odds | Sri Lanka vs New Zealand

In the opening match of T20 international between Sri Lanka and New Zealand, the host was handed a five-wicket defeat by the World Cup runner up. After tying the test series with 1-1, both the teams geared up for the shortest format of the game as they play the first T20I match at Pallekele.

Now, after losing the first match Sri Lanka must be thinking of how to win the next one. The 2nd match of T20 series will be played in the same ground as the previous one, and the chances of winning the visitor are once again quite high. But we cannot forget the mishap which happened to New Zealand in the form of Lockie Ferguson, who has been ruled out for the rest of the series because of his fractured thumb.
