Cricket Betting Tips and Match Predictions: Sri Lanka tour of New Zealand 2023 – NZ vs SL 3rd T20I Match Preview:
The third and final game of the three-match T20I series between the home team New Zealand and Sri Lanka will be played at John Davies Oval, Queenstown on Saturday.
New Zealand has leveled the series 1-1 after a comprehensive victory by 9 wickets in the second T20I.
The visitors didn’t get a good start after being put into bat first as they lost both their openers within four overs. Despite losing their openers early, the Lankans did look on course for another strong total with Kusal Perera and Dhananjaya de Silva stitching a fluent 62-run stand for the third wicket. It was Milne who broke the partnership with a slower ball to dismiss Kusal Perera.
Dhananjaya fell soon after and despite a few handy blows from Asalanka, wickets kept tumbling regularly at the other end. They got bowled out for a below-par total of 141. Adam Milne was the star performer for the home side who picked up his maiden fifer in T20Is.
In reply, New Zealand got off to a flying start, thanks to opener Chad Bowes’ risky little innings of 31 off just 15 balls. Once he fell, it was Tim Seifert’s show who smacked Sri Lankan bowlers all over the park and scored an unbeaten 79 off just 43 balls. He, along with skipper Tom Latham, put up 106 run partnership to take the home side over the line.
An exciting game is anticipated here between these two sides on Saturday.
Key Players for Sri Lanka:
Dasun Shanaka: The skipper of Sri Lanka will be the key for his side. The 31-year all-rounder has put up many match-winning performances for his side. He has scored 1328 runs in 80 innings and has been good with the ball as well. He picked 2 wickets in the first T20I and can come in handy here as well.
Wanindu Hasaranga: The right-arm leg-spinner and an aggressive lower-middle order batter have been exceptional in the last few years. He is the No.1 Ranked T20I bowler in the ICC rankings currently. He picked up 2 wickets in the first game, ending up with excellent figures of 4-0-30-2. He will be hoping for another impactful performance in this game.
Key Players for New Zealand:
Daryl Mitchell: The hard-hitting all-rounder looks to be in prime touch. In the Test series, he scored 200 runs in just 3 innings at an average of 66.7. He is a good bowler as well, picking up key wickets in the middle overs. In the ODI series, he picked up 5 wickets in just 2 games. In the first T20I, he was the top-scorer for his side with 66 runs off just 44 balls.
Adam Milne: The right-arm pacer was impressive in the second T20I as he picked up his maiden fifer in T20Is. He was adjudged the player of the match for his match-winning spell of 4-0-26-5. He will be a crucial player to consider for this game as well.
