The NZ vs SL second ODI will be played in Christchurch on March 28. The match starts from 6.30 am IST which is 2 pm local time. New Zealand outplayed Sri Lanka in the first ODI as they won the match by 198 runs and are leading the series 1-0.
Batting first, New Zealand posted a competitive 274. Fin Allen (51), Daryl Mitchell (47), Glenn Phillips (39) and Rachin Ravindra (49) came up with special contributions. For Sri Lanka, Chamika Karunaratne picked up four wickets with the ball.
Sri Lanka’s chase went completely off the track as Henry Shipley playing his fourth ODI took five for 31 in seven overs as the Lankans were bowled out for just 76 inside 20 overs. Daryl Mitchell and Blair Tickener took two wickets each as the ISlanders were dismissed for one of their lowest ODI totals. The first ODI was also the 100th overall between both sides.
Heading into the second ODi, New Zealand will be missing a few of their players who played the first ODI as they have reached India for IPL 2023. It will be interesting to see whether the IPL-bound Sri Lankan players play the second ODI.
