Full Match Details Of Today Match
Sri Lankan team performance had not been very impressive in a decade after the retirement of star players like Kumar Sangakkara, Mahela Jayawardene. They have some good young players but have not shown any consistency yet. They have faced big defeats in the recent world cup 2019 due to their inconsistent performance and also lost their last match against New Zealand in 1st T20 match.
It was a good match indeed as their batsmen did really well to post a good competitive score of 174 runs. Kusal Mendis played a brilliant knock of 79 runs with 8 fours and 2 sixes. Their bowlers while defending picked up 3 quick wickets but after that couldn’t stop the flow of runs as they faced a disheartening defeat. Skipper Lasith Malinga bowled beautifully and picked up 2 wickets giving away just 23 runs.
New Zealand, on the other hand, had a great 2019 so far. They did really well in World Cup 2019 to defeat India to enter into the finals. They played final against England but unfortunately lost in the super over. Their players had been in excellent form especially their batsmen who are looking very strong. They had already won 1st T20 match of the series against Sri Lanka and will be looking to clinch another one.

Pitch Report And Weather Forecasting in Today Match
The weather in Pallekele is humid with temperature in the mid-20s. There will be cloud cover and are chances of rain for this match. The outfield will be a little slow due to rain. The pitch here at Pallekele International Ground, Pallekele is a very good pitch for batting and doesn’t change in both the innings. We are expecting a lot of runs from both sides.
Toss Report in Today Match
According to us team who will win the toss will decide to bowl first as the wicket is good for batting and won’t change much in the second innings. The team will be hoping to restrict the opposition to a low score and chase the total. However overcast conditions can help fast bowlers in the first 6 overs so the batsmen will have to be little careful at the start.
