NZ vs SL, 2nd ODI Preview
Sri Lanka’s form deteriorated even further after a 2-0 Test whitewash, as they were all out for 76 runs in the first ODI. The key bowlers in the team bowled well in their respective spells to limit the hosts to a par total. In Auckland, where teams have chased even higher totals, a 275-run target isn’t much. Tom Latham, who is leading the hosts in the ODI series, scored a brilliant century the last time the two teams met in Christchurch. New Zealand has a number of newcomers on its team. Among them, Henry Shipley made his mark with a fifer in his fourth ODI.

New Zealand outplayed the visitors in every aspect of the game in the series opener at Eden Park. With the momentum on their side, NZ can be expected to continue having an edge over Sri Lanka. Shanaka leads a good all-round side and they can bounce back with a few players coming good on the match day. But on the whole, it is the home team that has the advantage and will start as favorites in our match prediction. Considering the team combination, New Zealand is expected to win this match.
