About the Match
It is finally depressed to one last contest between Sri Lanka and New Zealand before the latter fly to Australia to face them in a test series. It has not been a effective tour for the Sri Lankans and they shell be hoping for a change in their inheritance with the change in format. The two teams are set to bolt horns in the only t20 scheduled to be played on 11th January at Eden Park, Auckland. In the two longer formats of the game, such has been the variation between the two sides that although New Zealand making so many mistakes, they have emerged dominant by important restrictions on all three occasions.
Although Sri Lankas batting did not fire communally in any of the three games, the most worring thing for their management will be the way their bowlers have performed in the middle overs. Akila Dananjayas absence has been telling for them as New Zealand have crossed the total of 300 thrice in three games. While Ish Sodhi has been super-fluent on all the surfaces, picking five wickets in three matches, the wrist spinners from the island nation are yet to pick up a wicket. After receiving hit for five sixes in an over, Thisara Pereras confidence with the ball is not too high. In the three matches gone in the series, there has not been much upgrading in the performance of the Sri Lankans.
Having won the Test and ODI legs of the tour, New Zealand will be devoted to try out some youngsters and give rest to their senior players. Kane Williamson has already been rested and Tim Southee will lead the team in his absence. The Kiwis have been super control in the two finished legs of the tour and although the absence of a couple of key players they do not look short in any department. With Kane Williamson absent, swaggering batsman, Glenn Phillips, is likely to get slotted at number three in the batting order. Ish Sodhi has been in wonderful form throughout the tour and in the absence of Trent Boult, Sodhi and Southee will have a superior role to play. Overall, the Kiwis have been way ahead as compared to Sri Lanka so far and the absence of two players should make a big difference.
The side winnig the toss is likely to bat second
