NZ vs SL

NZ vs SL: Everyone across the globe is pumped for another epic World Cup T20 matchup. On Saturday, October 29, 2022, New Zealand and Sri Lanka will play in Match 27 of the World Cup T20 2022 at the Sydney Cricket Ground in Sydney. All of our ICC T20 World Cup 2022 today match predictions are posted in a safe and secure environment.

In the ICC T20 World Cup 2022, there have been some significant upsets. Ireland defeated New Zealand, New Zealand defeated Sri Lanka, and most recently, Zimbabwe defeated Pakistan. The only team in this tournament to have done so is India, as no other team had managed to win both of its games.

We believe that New Zealand was going to win with certainty, but they were unfortunate to have Afghanistan’s match against them canceled due to rain after they defeated a good team in the first match.

Sri Lanka performed well in qualifying games, winning two of the three games. They also got off to a strong start in the Super 12 by defeating Ireland in the opening game, but they were defeated by Sri Lanka in the following game. The rain had made conditions extremely challenging, and now Sri Lanka must win this match. However, defeating New Zealand in Sri Lanka’s conditions is not simple.

NZ vs SL: Pitch Prediction

The 27th game of the T20 World Cup 2022 will take place in Sydney, Australia, at the Sydney Cricket Ground. We had seen from prior games conducted here that the pitch is appropriate for batting at this location.

The pitch is fast and bouncy, making it difficult to score runs in the early and middle innings. In this game, we make a prediction that the surface will inevitably slow down and become puzzling for batting. It will be a herculean task to surpass a score of 180.

NZ vs SL: Weather Prediction

On the day of the play in Sydney, the weather forecast is forecasting that there will be some clouds around, and the weather prediction is also indicating that there will be some possibilities of rain, but we are in hope that the match will go on as scheduled without any delay.
