NZ vs SL Betting Tips

  • With four half-centuries and one hundred in international cricket already in 2023, we are backing Daryl Mitchell to be New Zealand’s highest run scorer in this final ODI. With the ball, Henry Shipley caused Sri Lanka’s batters plenty of problems in the first ODI and he is our tip for New Zealand’s top wicket taker in this game.
  • Pathum Nissanka has impressed across all-formats against some of the best teams in world cricket. The opener is a strong choice for Sri Lanka’s highest run scorer on Friday. Chamika Karunaratne dismissed two of New Zealand’s top three in the first ODI and he is our pick for Sri Lanka’s top wicket taker in Hamilton.
  • With an average of 61.75 from four innings against Sri Lanka this month, we recommend backing Daryl Mitchell to hit over 31.5 runs in this final ODI.

NZ vs SL 3rd ODI Match Prediction & Betting Tips

New Zealand and Sri Lanka end their ODI series at Seddon Park on Friday afternoon. Although the hosts won the first game of the series by 198 runs on Saturday, the second game was completely washed out and not one ball was bowled. Read on as we preview the final day-night ODI of this three-match series. The game begins in Hamilton at 14:00 local time.

New Zealand’s bowlers would have fancied their chances of bowling Sri Lanka out for another small total with the cloudy conditions on Tuesday. However, they could get similar conditions to take advantage of in this game.

Sri Lanka must win this game to give themselves a chance of automatic qualification to the 2023 World Cup. The approach may not come off but we expect them to play in an attacking manner in this match.

NZ vs SL Match Toss Prediction

Looking at recent results, there is no great advantage batting first or second at this venue. However, with humidity levels likely to get high in the second innings, we predict that both teams will want to field first.

NZ vs SL, Seddon Park Pitch Report

It is a good batting wicket in Hamilton and both teams should be targeting a score of 300+ when batting first in this game. There will be some good pace in the pitch.

Hamilton Weather Report

We should get a full game in Hamilton and we do not expect any rain delays. Partly cloudy conditions are forecast throughout the match.

New Zealand Team News & Playing 11

NZ Team News

With the heavy rain throughout Tuesday’s scheduled second ODI, all the New Zealand players who would have been selected will be even fresher for this final match of the series. We expect Tom Latham to lead a side with Mark Chapman in the middle-order and an opening pair of Chad Bowes and Will Young.

NZ Key Players

  • Daryl Mitchell - The 31 year old has the ability to be playing in the 2023 IPL but that competition’s loss is New Zealand’s gain in this series and the IT20 series which comes next.
  • Chad Bowes - The 30 year old opener made his international debut in the first game of the series and is in excellent form after hitting centuries for Canterbury in mid-February and early March.
  • Henry Shipley - It has been a great start to 2023 for the quick bowler who made his international debut in Karachi in January. His form is strong and his confidence is high.

NZ Team Form

New Zealand are a very good team across all formats and have not lost an ODI at home since February 2019.

Sri Lanka Team News & Playing 11

SL Team News

With the IT20 series beginning two days after this match, Sri Lanka will be determined to pick up their first victory of this tour in the final ODI. Wanindu Hasaranga continues to play on this tour and will arrive at his IPL team, Royal Challengers Bangalore, in time for their third match.

SL Key Players

  • Pathum Nissanka - The 24 year old right handed opener averages 38.35 in Tests and 31.33 in ODIs. His highest score of 137 came against a very strong Australia team last year.
  • Dasun Shanaka - With Sri Lanka now requiring other teams to help them out in order to automatically qualify for the  2023 World Cup, we expect the skipper to produce a strong performance with bat and ball in this match.
  • Chamika Karunaratne - The quick bowler has taken seven wickets across his last three international appearances including wickets against India and New Zealand. He enjoys the local conditions on this tour.

SL Team Form

Sri Lanka have not won a game in this format since November last year when they beat Afghanistan four wickets in Pallekele.

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

Who will win New Zealand vs Sri Lanka 3rd ODI Match?

With some of New Zealand’s top players now at the IPL, the gap between the teams has certainly got smaller. But looking at the teams, New Zealand are still the stronger side.

NZ vs SL Top Team Batsmen

We are backing Tom Latham, Daryl Mitchell and Will Young with the bat for New Zealand. With the likes of Devon Conway and Finn Allen away at the IPL, this is a great opportunity for Young to show he can dominate an innings for New Zealand. Mitchell has hit at least one six in each of his four innings against Sri Lanka this month.

Pathum Nissanka, Angelo Mathews and Charith Asalanka are our batting tips for Sri Lanka. Asalanka has an excellent ODI record with an average of 40.00 from 22 innings. Mathews has scored over 14000 international runs since his debut in 2008.

NZ vs SL Top Team Bowlers

Matt Henry, Henry Shipley and Blair Tickner are our bowling selections for New Zealand. Henry has been unfortunate with injuries in his career but is enjoying a run of games and is taking plenty of wickets. Tickner struggled on pitches in India earlier this year but is far more comfortable in home conditions.

We recommend Chamika Karunaratne, Lahiru Kumara and Kasun Rajitha with the ball for Sri Lanka. Rajitha got the crucial wicket of Rachin Ravindra who was looking dangerous on 49 in the first ODI. Kumara dismissed Chad Bowes and Daryl Mitchell in the first match.

🏆 New Zealand vs Sri Lanka Prediction

It was a shame that the weather prevented any action on Tuesday as it would have been very interesting to see how Sri Lanka approached the game after their poor batting in the first ODI. With automatic qualification for the 2023 World Cup still a possibility, we expect to see Sri Lanka batting with real aggression. Our prediction is for a tighter contest but with New Zealand getting the win to end the ODI series..
