Latham will play a part in the middle with Glenn Phillips and Daryl Mitchell. NZ vs SL, Latham has scored 771 runs in 21 innings played in the last two years. All three centuries have come while playing in New Zealand, where he averages 222 in 6 innings.

New Zealand vs Sri Lanka Match Prediction

New Zealand has been on top of their game at home. They haven’t lost an ODI since 2019. NZ vs SL, They have won 13 ODIs since then. Though New Zealand will be without the key players, they have enough firepower to keep their unbeaten streak of 5 ODIs against Sri Lanka to keep alive. On the other hand, Sri Lanka has everything to die for the results. Their World Cup qualification depends on the outcome. But they haven’t been good in this format.
