New Zealand will take on Sri Lanka in the 2nd of the three match long ODI series which is a part of Sri Lanka’s tour of New Zealand 2023. The fixture is scheduled to be hosted at Hagley Oval, Christchurch on March 28. The match will commence from 6:30 AM IST. Ahead of the matchday, I have assorted three of the best money making betting tips for you from the NZ vs SL head-to-head encounter.
After facing a 2-0 series defeat against NZ in Tests, the visitors suffered a massive 198 run defeat and are currently trailing the three match long ODI series by 1-0. Henry Shipley ran through NZ’s top-order, eventually picking up 5 for 31 runs. Not a single Lankan batter looked comfortable on the crease and were eventually bowled out for just 76 runs. However, SL will not go down without a fight which makes the 2nd ODI even more interesting. As we prepare for the 2nd game of the series, let us have a look at our top team & player betting tips from the NZ vs SL match prediction.
Let us have a look at our top two team betting tips from the NZ vs SL match prediction.
In pursuit of a target of 275 runs, Sri Lanka crashed to 76 all out. It all started when opener Nuwanidu Fernando ran for a third even though his partner Nissanka wasn't interested which resulted in a run out. The duo could only muster 14 runs for the first wicket. In the last five ODI games, SL posted scores of 101, 19, 29, 7 & 14 runs before the fall of the first wicket. The reigning Asia Cup champions, Sri Lanka failed to amass our target of 24.5 runs on three out of five occasions. This entails a 60% success rate for SL to score under 24.5 runs before 1st dismissal in this game. Opener Pathum Nissanka averages almost 31.33 in the format. However, his average stoops down to just 15.18 while batting away from home. Nuwanidu Fernando, on the other hand, has only played 3 ODIs in his career and averages close to 24.33. Speaking of NZ, the side conceded more than 24.5 runs before picking up the first wicket on three occasions in their last five matches against the opposition they faced. Although this is against our betting tip, we must not forget that the Kiwis played against India. Shubman Gill & Rohit Sharma were the ones to open the innings and these two batters were in exquisite form and hence the Kiwis failed to pick up the first wicket early. Therefore, it would be fair to put your money on SL to score under 24.5 runs before 1st dismissal in this game. Our affiliate partner 1XBET has offered odds of 1.83 for the same and you should definitely pick this for a profitable return.
NZ are a better batting unit in the format and have produced explosive batters over the years. They are loaded with talented batters like Mitchell, Allen and Latham and account for a hard hitting top order line-up. NZ played an ODI series vs IND before hosting this tour of SL and scored 13, 0 and 13 sixes in three games. This sums up to 26 sixes that were struck at an average of 8.66. SL also played against IND in their last tour and scored 5, 3 and 0 sixes in those games, summing up to 8 maximums at an average of 2.66. In the last five head-to-head clashes against SL, NZ posted 14, 8, 9, 3 & 8 sixes in those games whereas SL struck 7, 13, 7, 2 & 1 sixes in the same. NZ posted more sixes on four out of the five occasions, accounting for a 80% success rate. Also, in the first game of the series, NZ bagged a massive 198 run victory along with that they scored 8 maximums. SL, on the other hand, bagged just a solitary six. Having said that, it looks like a hit betting tip to earn a bonus from the NZ vs SL match prediction. 1XBET offers the odds of 1.65 for NZ to score more sixes and you should take it as soon as possible.
We have chosen Kusal Mendis as our top player betting tip from the NZ vs SL match prediction. Have a glance!
Kusal Mendis made his ODI debut in 2016 and became a young sensation in the Sri Lankan batting line-up. He has played a total of 91 ODIs, scoring 2654 runs at an average of 30.86. He even bagged 2 centuries and 20 fifties in his career so far. But to pick this betting tip inclines more on his current batting form. The batter scored 388 runs in 11 games in 2022 at an average of 48.50. His figures drastically dropped in his 4 games in 2023 where he could only muster 38 runs at an average of 9.50. Those scores read as - 0, 34, 4 & 0 runs. To back this betting tip, his track record against NZ is sufficient. He played 5 games against the team and scored 38 runs at an average of 7.60 ( 18, 20, 0, 0 & 0 ). Four of those games were played in NZ where he posted the scores of 18, 20, 0 & 0. Mendis looked quite uncomfortable on the crease in the first ODI. He faced 16 deliveries and was dismissed for a duck. His records against NZ dont look good either and hence we suggest that the southpaw will be dismissed early in the NZ vs SL head-to-head contest. To win a bonus, log on to 1XBET and pick the odds of 1.87 for Mendis to score under 24.5 runs.
