New Zealand vs Sri Lanka: After their previous match against Afghanistan being abandoned due to rain, New Zealand will now look to keep their winning run intact as they take on Sri Lanka on 29th October at the SCG. The Kiwis started off their campaign in the T20 World Cup 2022 with a sensational victory over their neighbours Australia. However, they missed the opportunity to get an easy win over Afghanistan as the match was called off and the two teams shared a point each. 

Sri Lanka, on the other hand, have had a disappointing run in the tournament so far. They lost their first Group Stage match against Namibia which was a big letdown. Although they regained momentum and qualified for the Super 12 easily, the Lankans ended up losing to Australia after winning their first Super 12 match against Ireland. A loss in the upcoming match against New Zealand will practically end their hopes in the 2022 T20 World Cup. 

In this article, we shall take a look at the Weather report, Probable lineups and Match prediction of this match.
