SL vs NZ : New Zealand has given a return call to ODI specialists Colin Munro, Lockie Ferguson, Ish Sodhi, Martin Guptill and Jimmy Neesham while their spin bowling all-rounder M Santner still misses out from the released squad. Kane Williamson will be leading the side while Ross Taylor will be assisting him with his experience.
The visitors will be led by Lasith Malinga who has replaced Dinesh Chandimal while Angelo Mathews is missing out due to an injury. Sri Lanka looks a well-balanced team with a perfect miss of young and experienced players and it will be interesting to watch how they conduct themselves. They have Dinesh Chandimal, Kusal Mendis, Niroshan Dickwella, Dhananjaya de Silva, Thisara Perera and Kusal Perera in their batting ranks while Dushmantha Chameera, Lahiru Kumara, Nuwan Pradeep and Kasun Rajitha will form the bowling attack along with skipper Lasith Malinga.
