Sri Lanka Vs New Zealand: 3RD T20 New Zealand Tour Of Sri Lanka 2019 – Playing XI, Pitch Report & Fantasy Picks | Dream11 Fantasy Cricket Tips | SL VS NZ

PITCH AND CONDITIONS

Plenty of cloud cover is expected throughout the game on Friday. However, the chances of precipitation are very low and so there should be a full 40-overs contest. The temperature should be around 24-26 degrees Celsius while humidity is likely to be between 79% and 84% during the match.

The first two T20 internationals of the ongoing series that have been played at Pallekele have produced high-scoring thrillers with 160+ having been scored each time. This goes to show how good the wicket has been for batting and one can expect similar conditions on Friday as well.
