New Zealand vs Sri Lanka 2nd Test Today Match Prediction
Previously, the first test between New Zealand and Sri Lanka ended in a draw. So, this is now a must win test for each side as the winner will claim the test series trophy. The second test match between New Zealand and Sri Lanka will be held at Basin Reserve, Wellington from 26 to 30 December 2018.
After winning the toss in the first test, Kiwi Skipper Kane Williamson invited Sri Lanka to bat first. With some good knocks by Dimuth Karunaratne 79, Angelo Mathews 83 and Niroshan Dickwella 80, Sri Lanka got to the sum of 282 in the first turn.
However, New Zealand were in a different mood. Despite losing the first wicket at just five runs, New Zealand smashed 578 due to a splendid double hundred by Tom Latham 264. Hence, Sri Lanka trailed 296 in their second innings. However, they were batting at 287 for 3 on the last day when the test match ended in a draw.
New Zealand will win. Though, New Zealand seemed to have lost the way in the previous test, but they are hopeful for the test series trophy. However, their bowlers must strike early and take wickets.
Meanwhile, Sri Lanka will look forward to the test series victory. Their batsmen seemed to be looking comfortable at the fast pitches of New Zealand. But this might be a trick before the final blow. So, they must prepare for the victory.
