While New Zealand has been one of the best-performing teams in the T20 World Cup 2022 so far, Sri Lanka has had a campaign filled with ups and downs. 

It is due to this reason that while New Zealand sits comfortably at the top of the Group 1 table, Sri Lanka is in the No.5 position right above Afghanistan.

New Zealand vs Sri Lanka: Winning Prediction 

The Sri Lankan team looked promising ahead of the tournament after their sensational performance in Asia Cup 2022. However, their campaign so far has had mixed reactions. They have played two matches so far – out of which they lost 1 and won 1. They have lacked consistency and thus it is difficult to bet on them in big matches. 

New Zealand, on the other hand, registered a fabulous victory in their very first match against Australia and thus turned many an eyeball towards them. They are being considered the favorites to lift the trophy now. We thus predict that they will end up winning the match against Sri Lanka pretty easily.
