After two test match and 1st ODI match won by New Zealand we don’t think you need today match prediction about the 2nd ODI match between New Zealand vs Sri Lanka of the ongoing five match ODI series. The hosts have taken a 1-0 lead in the series as our New Zealand vs Sri Lanka Prediction pointed earlier with a seven-wicket victory in the first match that was also played at the same venue. The visitors huffed and puffed their way to 188 runs batting first as Matt Henry and Doug Bracewell ran rout with the ball. While Henry claimed four wickets, Bracewell grabbed three as the Sri Lankan batsmen struggled to cope with the conditions.
In the 1st ODI match we’ve seen that Sri Lankan batting lineup failed as our New Zealand vs Sri Lanka Prediction given, even with the top five batsmen which included experienced pros such as Tillakaratne Dilshan, Lahiru Thirimanne, Dinesh Chandimal, and Angelo Matthews were all dismissed in single digit scores. Had it not been for a big effort from Milinda Siriwardana and Nuwan Kulasekara, the Lankans would have really struggled. The duo scored important fifties under the circumstances but it was not enough to make the game a real contest.
While New Zealand team had get a solid start from Martin Guptill and Brendon McCullum that saw the duo record another 100 plus partnership according to our New Zealand vs Sri Lanka Prediction, for the opening wicket saw the hosts move to a commanding position in the game. Both batsmen scored fifties with Guptill top-scoring with 79 runs off 56 deliveries. The Kiwis completed the chase in 21 overs in the end in what was a damning assessment of the present Lankan squad.
The Sri Lankan team come to play ODI series to make a come back but such a poor defeat will be hard to explain. Experienced batsmen were unable to deal with proper seam bowling yet again and embarrassed themselves as well as the side to change the New Zealand vs Sri Lanka Prediction. They definitely need to buck up and show better application out there in the middle. New Zealand did what they have been doing pretty well off late and that is play attacking, ruthless cricket. The hosts will back themselves to do just that yet again and with McCullum and Guptill in such murderous form, the Lankans could take some serious punishment yet again if their batters are unable to meet the challenge.
