Sri Lanka vs New Zealand T 20 Preview

Year 2019 did not start well for the Lankans with loosing the ODI series 3-0 to New Zealand in New Zealand.

But Lankans being able to show some fight in the ODI series with some special knocks from players like Thisara Perera and Niroshan Dickwella has build up the expectations for a close encounter and exciting end to the series in One off T20.

In New Zealand point of view Mitchelle Santner is set for a comeback in place of injured Jimmy Neesham  who has been ruled out of Squad.

In Lankan's point of view Danushka Gunathilaka will not take a place in the team as an opener as he is suffering from back injury.

Eden park is expected to have a batting friendly pitch and we will not get surprised if it will be another high scoring affair.

Lots of changes are expected to happen from the ODI squads in both teams and our expected playing xi for both teams are as follows:


1.Niroshan Dickwella
2.Sadeera Samarawickrama
3.Kusal Perera
