Prediction –

We predict that New Zealand will win this match but the macth has a very high probability of being a tie.



Preview –

Time wasn’t going well for the Lankans in the last test. They suffered a lot and both their batting and bowling were found quite lacking. Their fielding wasn’t up to their level as well. Thus the match resulted in a defeat for Sri Lanka and more accurately New Zealand had an easy win in their books. If Sri Lanka keeps playing like this then they will have hard times finding win no matter what. SO they need to rethink and do some major improvements to make sure they play differently in this match if they are hoping to get a draw or a win. But it can not be denied that they will be playing under a lot of pressure.

New Zealand has a chance of white washing Sri Lanka in their home soil. They played well in the first test between these two and got themselves a win. They will be very confident. Their Batsmen are in-form and their bowlers got them break throw at the right times. They fielded well and positively even after making mistakes. As they also have the home advantage, they are undeniably the favorites to win this match.

However anything can happen in a match and thus the team playing well in the field will win this match.
