SL vs NZ 2nd T20I Squad Comparison

Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka looks solid at the top and in the middle in the batting department. While Avishka Fernando didn’t perform as expected, Kusal Mendis scored 79 runs off 53 balls. Mendis was supported by Niroshan Dickwella in the middle who scored 33 off 25 to help the home team reach a competitive total. Given Shanaka and Isuru Udana’s performance with the bat in the death, Sri Lanka would be confident in their batsmen going into the 2nd T20I match.

Kusal Perera and Avishka Fernando are good hitters to have at the top. And if they get going, Sri Lanka will be in a commanding position early on. While Malinga and Hasaranga delivered with the ball, others failed to contribute. Sri Lanka bowled 8 overs with Malinga and Hasaranga together conceding 44 runs for 4 wickets. Kasun Rajitha and Isuru Udana’s expensive spells saw the game slip away from Sri Lanka. Udana is crucial in this bowling set up and his performance is a key factor for Sri Lanka. The home side will need at least 3 bowlers to bowl full spells at a decent economy rate and pick up regular wickets.

New Zealand

Blackcaps secured a win in the 1st T20I of the series chasing 175 runs courtesy of Ross Taylor and Colin de Grandhomme. After finding themselves at 39-3 in the 8th over, Taylor and Grandhomme together built a partnership of 79 runs for the 4th wicket in 37 balls. As a result, the duo changed the course of the match bringing Blackcaps closer to victory.

Mitchell Santner and Daryl Mitchell scored an unbeaten 31-runs partnership in the last 19 balls as New Zealand won by 5 wickets. Guptill, Munro and Tim Seifert need to fire at the top for New Zealand to seal the series. Also, they need their best bowlers bowling their best spells to stay in the game for longer. Seth Rance finished with 0 for 58 in his 4 overs and would not be a fit going into the next match.

New Zealand might think of replacing him with Lockie Ferguson while allowing Daryl Mitchell to bowl an over or two. While Daryl Mitchell and Colin Munro are not the regular bowlers for Blackcaps, they are good options for Southee to get a breakthrough.

New Zealand is favourites to win this match

Sri Lanka has a solid batting top-order along with a death bowling specialist in the bowling department.
