Who Will Win Sri Lanka vs New Zealand, 3rd T20?
New Zealand defeated Sri Lanka by four wickets in a nail-biting thriller the other night to take an unassailable 2-0 lead in the three-match series. With just one more game to go, this third and final T20 international is now nothing more than a dead rubber. Both the teams have been very competitive in the series which has produced back-to-back close encounters. The hosts may have suffered defeats on both occasions but they have not made things any easy for the Kiwis. They have stretched the visitors in both the games and have made them toil hard for their wins.
Sri Lanka will now be playing for pride when they take on New Zealand in this final T20 international. The match will be played on September 6 at the same venue – Pallekele International Cricket Stadium in Pallekele. Live telecast is scheduled to begin at 7 PM local time.

SL vs NZ Weather Report
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. Temperature should be around 24-26 degrees Celsius while humidity is likely to be between 79% and 84% during the match.
SL vs NZ Pitch Condition
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.
SL vs NZ Toss Prediction
New Zealand batted second in both the matches and went on to win on both occasions. Pallekele has offered good batting conditions this series and so setting a target can be a little tricky here. The toss-winning team, therefore, will probably choose to chase this time around.
