NZ vs SL Betting Tips

  • Devon Conway has hit 289 runs across his last five IT20s and the New Zealand opener is well worth backing as their highest run scorer against Sri Lanka. Tim Southee took 3-6 in the win over Australia and the right arm pace bowler is our tip for New Zealand’s top wicket taker in this match.
  • Pathum Nissanka has been in good form at the top of the order for Sri Lanka and we are backing the right-handed opener to be theri highest run scorer in this game. Wanindu Hasaranga had a poor game against Australia but he is a world class performer and he is a strong choice for Sri Lanka’s top wicket taker against New Zealand.
  • Our recommendation is to back Devon Conway to hit over 44.5 runs in this fixture.

NZ vs SL Match Prediction & Betting Tips, T20 World Cup 2022

New Zealand and Sri Lanka go head to head in Match 27 of the 2022 T20 World Cup at the Sydney Cricket Ground on Saturday evening. New Zealand beat Australia in their opening fixture before their game with Afghanistan was abandoned without a ball bowled. Sri Lanka have beaten Ireland and lost to Australia so far. Read on as we preview this match. The Super 12 stage game begins at 19:00 local time in Sydney.

New Zealand were unfortunate with the weather against Afghanistan but will be in a very strong position in the group if they win this match. They have an excellent recent record against Sri Lanka and will be full of confidence.

Sri Lanka too good for Ireland in their first Super 12 game but were then well beaten by Australia. They were unable to stop Marcus Stoinis in full flow and will need to be wary of the same thing happening against powerful batters here.

With the weather so poor that no toss took place in the Afghanistan v New Zealand game in Melbourne on Wednesday, we expect no changes to the team ahead of this game. Lockie Ferguson will have had nine days in between games and will be well rested.

  • Trent Boult - The left-arm pace bowler is one of the most consistent performers in international cricket and is a threat with the ball across the innings.
  • Tim Southee - the experience right arm fast medium bowler dismissed David Warner, Aaron Finch and Mitchell Marsh - all three of Australia’s top three batters.

SL Team News

It has been a tournament of injuries for Sri Lanka’s pace bowlers and Binura Fernando became the latest player to be ruled out of the tournament. He bowled the first five balls of the innings against Australia before having to leave the field and has been replaced in the squad by Asitha Fernando.

SL Key Players

  • Pathum Nissanka - The 24 year old batter has already hit scores of 40 against Australia and 74 against UAE in this tournament.
  • Kusal Mendis - The opener was at his best in the win over Ireland hitting 68 not out from 43 balls and taking the Player of the Match Award as his side won by nine wickets with 30 balls remaining.
  • Wanindu Hasaranga - The bowling all-rounder conceded 53 runs from three overs against Australia but he is still the joint leading wicket taker with nine dismissals in the T20 World Cup 2022.

SL Team Form

Sri Lanka’s seven wicket defeat against Australia ended a run of three successive wins in this format.
