NZ vs SL Betting Tips

  • Daryl Mitchell looked in good form once again as he hit 47 runs to begin the series. The right-hander is well worth backing as New Zealand's highest run scorer in Christchurch. Henry Shipley took 5-31 from seven overs in the first ODI and he is a strong choice for New Zealand’s top wicket taker in this match.
  • Pathum Nissanka has developed on the international stage over the last 18 months and the opener is our tip for Sri Lanka’s highest run scorer against New Zealand. Chamika Karunaratne took 4-43 on Saturday and he is our pick for Sri Lanka’s top wicket taker in the second ODI.
  • Irrespective of the format, Daryl Mitchell continues to impress. He is well worth backing hitting over 29.5 runs in this clash.

NZ vs SL 2nd ODI Match Prediction & Betting Tips

The second ODI of the three-match series between New Zealand and Sri Lanka takes place on Tuesday afternoon at the Hagley Oval. New Zealand are 1-0 up in the series after a 198 run victory in the first ODI at Eden Park, Auckland on Saturday. Read on as we preview this day-night ODI. This match gets underway in Christchurch at 14:00 local time.

New Zealand will be without two of their most powerful batters from the first ODI but it was their bowlers who stood out in that game. In cold conditions, we expect the hosts to be too strong once more.

Sri Lanka were outplayed in the first ODI and must find a way to produce more runs in this game if they are to be competitive. With the ball, they showed that they can cause New Zealand plenty of problems.

NZ vs SL Match Toss Prediction

The last three ODIs at the Hagley Oval have been won by the team batting second. We predict that both captains will want to field first ahead of this match.

NZ vs SL, Hagley Oval Pitch Report

We expect a similar surface to what we saw in the first ODI. There will be assistance for the quick bowlers and a par score will be no higher than 250.

Christchurch Weather Report

There is a chance of rain interrupting the action during the afternoon in Christchurch. The forecast is also for cold conditions and a high of nine degrees.

New Zealand Team News & Playing 11

NZ Team News

There will be at least two changes for New Zealand from the first ODI with Finn Allen and Glenn Phillips all on their way to India for this year’s IPL. We expect to see Henry Nicholls and Mark Chapman come into the side. Lockie Ferguson is also now at the IPL after missing the first ODI.

NZ Key Players

  • Daryl Mitchell - As expected, the upper-middle-order batter took on added responsibility in the team in the opening game. He hit five boundaries including two sixes in his innings.
  • Tom Latham - Without the quick scoring pair of Finn Allen and Glenn Phillips in the team in this match, the skipper may need to score at a slightly quicker rate than he normally does.
  • Henry Shipley - The 26 year old right-arm medium fast bowler took the Player of the Match Award in the opening game after recording his format best figures. 

NZ Team Form

New Zealand have won two of their last five ODIs with Saturday’s big win ending a run of three successive defeats.

Sri Lanka Team News & Playing 11

SL Team News

After being bowled out for 76 on Saturday, there will be plenty of calls for changes to the side ahead of this match. However, with New Zealand likely to be weaker than in the opening ODI, and with no injuries reported by the visitors, we expect to see Sri Lanka unchanged. 

SL Key Players

  • Pathum Nissanka - The right-handed batter hit two boundaries in the opening game of the series and has a top score of 137 in this format.
  • Dasun Shanaka - The captain bowled well on Saturday but was dismissed first ball with the bat. He will have been embarrassed by the result and we expect him to lead by example in this ODI.
  • Chamika Karunaratne - The right-arm pace bowler dismissed Finn Allen and Will Young, two of New Zealand’s top three, before returning to dismiss numbers nine and ten later in the innings in Auckland.

SL Team Form

Sri Lanka have now lost four successive ODI defeats with losing margins of 198 runs and 317 runs in their last two matches.

Sri Lanka Predicted Playing 11

Pathum Nissanka, Nuwanidu Fernando, Kusal Mendis (wk), Angelo Mathews, Charith Asalanka, Dasun Shanaka (c), Wanindu Hasaranga, Chamika Karunaratne, Dilshan Madushanka, Kasun Rajitha, Lahiru Kumara

New Zealand vs Sri Lanka Head to Head

Although New Zealand have a very strong recent record over Sri Lanka in ODIs, they lead the head to head by a margin of only nine wins. Sri Lanka’s last ODI win over New Zealand was in 2015.

Who will win New Zealand vs Sri Lanka 2nd ODI Match?

After a one-sided Test series and now a one-sided first ODI, it is clear that New Zealand are more comfortable in local conditions. With cold weather forecast, we expect New Zealand to be the stronger side once more.

NZ vs SL Top Team Batsmen

Tom Latham, Daryl Mitchell and Will Young are our batting picks for New Zealand. Young hit a six in the opening ODI and has a top score of 120 from his nine appearances in this format. Latham needs 28 runs in this match to bring up 3500 ODI runs.

We recommend Pathum Nissanka, Angelo Mathews and Charith Asalanka with the bat for Sri Lanka. Mathews top scored for Sri Lanka and was the only player in the side to hit 3+ boundaries in the opening game. Nissanka has hit six scores of 50+ in ODIs.

NZ vs SL Top Team Bowlers

We are backing Matt Henry, Henry Shipley and Blair Tickner with the ball for New Zealand. Although Henry went wicketless in the first ODI, he bowled two maidens and conceded only 12 runs. Tickner got the big wicket of Angelo Mathews on Saturday before dismissing Lahiru Kumara from the 19.5th ball.

Chamika Karunaratne, Lahiru Kumara and Kasun Rajitha are our bowling tips for Sri Lanka. Rajitha has taken 14 wickets from his last six games in this format. Kumara dismissed two of New Zealand’s top four batters in the opening game of the series.

🏆 New Zealand vs Sri Lanka Prediction

It would be a big surprise if Sri Lanka were unable to produce a stronger display, particularly with the bat, in this game. However, New Zealand know how to get the best out of a home pitch, particularly in the forecast cold weather. We are predicting a closer match than on Saturday but are backing New Zealand to win again.
