NZ vs SL Betting Tips

  • After hitting 66 runs from 44 balls in the opening IT20, we are backing Darly Mitchell to be New Zealand’s highest run scorer in this game. Adam Milne took 5-26 in Dunedin and now has 42 IT20 wickets. He is our pick for New Zealand’s top wicket taker against Sri Lanka.
  • Kusal Perera hit 53 not out in the first game of the series and he is our tip for Sri Lanka’s highest run scorer against New Zealand. With the ball, Wanindu Hasaranga has taken 134 international wickets including 91 in this format. The spinner is a strong choice for Sri Lanka’s top wicket taker in Queenstown.
  • With six wickets across the series, we are backing Adam Milne to take over 1.5 wickets in this clash.

NZ vs SL 3rd T20 Match Prediction & Betting Tips

With the series tied at 1-1 ahead of this final match, New Zealand and Sri Lanka go head to head on Saturday afternoon in Queenstown. Sri Lanka won the first game of the series on a super over before New Zealand levelled the scores with a nine wicket victory in Dunedin on Wednesday. Read on as we preview the final game of Sri Lanka’s tour. This IT20 gets underway at the John Davies Oval at 13:00 local time.

New Zealand will be very focused ahead of this game as they look to complete another series win over Sri Lanka. They should have enough with bat and ball to win this match.

Sri Lanka have been their most competitive in this format but were well beaten in the last game. We expect to see them push New Zealand very close in this last IT20.

New Zealand Team News & Playing 11

NZ Team News

Although they had not got over the finish line in the opening match of the series, New Zealand selected the same XI for the second IT20 on Wednesday. They were brilliant in that game and we expect to see the same players chosen for this final match.

NZ Key Players

  • Tim Seifert- the keeper-batter struck a brilliant 79 not out from 43 balls in Wednesday’s game. His innings included six sixes and he has always been an expert in the T20 format.
  • Daryl Mitchell- after top scoring in the opening game of the series, the right-hander did not get a chance to bat in the second IT20. He needs 46 runs in this game to bring up 1000 IT20 runs.
  • Adam Milne- the 30 year old fast bowler took the Player of the Match Award and recorded his best IT20 figures in the win in Dunedin.

NZ Team Form

New Zealand ended a run of three games without a win with a convincing nine wicket victory on Wednesday.

Sri Lanka Team News & Playing 11

SL Team News

Kasun Rajitha came into the Sri Lanka XI for the second game in place of the wicketless Chamika Karunaratne and took the only wicket of the innings. We expect Rajitha to retain his place in an unchanged team to conclude the tour of New Zealand.

SL Key Players

  • Kusal Perera- the 32 year old keeper-batter has hit 88 runs across the first two games of this series and has hit 13 half-centuries in IT20 cricket.
  • Charith Asalanka- the middle-order batter has looked good in this series. He took the Player of the Match award with 67 runs from 41 balls in the 1st IT20.
  • Wanindu Hasaranga- the bowling all-rounder went wicketless in Wednesday’s defeat but took 2-30 in the opening match of the series.

SL Team Form

Sri Lanka have won only one IT20, without the need for a Super Over, out of their last six games in this format.

Sri Lanka Predicted Playing 11

Pathum Nissanka, Kusal Mendis (wk), Kusal Perera, Dhananjaya de Silva, Charith Asalanka, Dasun Shanaka (c), Wanindu Hasaranga, Kasun Rajitha, Dilshan Madushanka, Maheesh Theekshana, Pramod Madushan

Who will win New Zealand vs Sri Lanka 3rd T20 Match?

There are some excellent players on both teams but New Zealand have been too good in their home conditions. On this pitch in Queenstown, we expect New Zealand to be the top side once more.

NZ vs SL Top Team Batsmen

Tom Latham, Daryl Mitchell and Tim Seifert are our batting choices for New Zealand. Seifert needs to hit 33 runs in this game to bring up 3500 runs across T20 cricket. Latham is skippering the side in this series and has a top T20 score of 110.

For Sri Lanka, Kusal Perera, Charith Asalanka and Kusal Mendis are our batting picks for Sri Lanka. Mendis has a top score of 79 in IT20s with nine centuries across other international formats. Asalanka has hit nine half-centuries in T20s.

NZ vs SL Top Team Bowlers

We recommend Adam Milne, Henry Shipley and Jimmy Neesham with the ball for New Zealand. Neesham has picked up three wickets across the series so far. Shipley has taken one wicket in each IT20 in this series and has dismissed Dasun Shanaka and Kusal Mendis.

Wanindu Hasaranga, Pramod Madushan and Kasun Rajitha are our bowling tips for Sri Lanka. Madushan dismissed Tom Latham and Adam Milne in the first game of the series. Rajitha’s best IT20 bowling figures are 3-29 and he has taken 87 international wickets.

🏆 New Zealand vs Sri Lanka Prediction

After two tests, three ODIs and two previous IT20s, Sri Lanka’s tour of New Zealand comes to a close in this game in Queenstown. Although the last match was very one-sided, we expect to see a much closer contest on Saturday afternoon. Sri Lanka have shown signs of their ability at times but overall have been outplayed. Our prediction is for Sri Lanka to have some good moments in this clash but for New Zealand to win.
