NZ vs SL, 3rd ODI: Top Five Picks

  1. Daryl Mitchell (NZ): Right-handed batter Daryl Mitchell scored 47 off 58 with three fours and two maximums in the first one-day international. The all-rounder also picked up two wickets; he looks worthy for the final game.
  2. Tom Latham (NZ): Skipper Tom Latham, who will also lead the side in the three T20 internationals to be followed, missed out in the first ODI as he got dismissed four just five of 17. The left-handed batter has a good record in Hamilton, with 324 runs to his name at an average of 46.28 in 8 innings.
  3. Henry Shipley (NZ): The tall right-arm medium-fast bowler Henry Shipley picked up his maiden five-wicket haul in his 4th ODI in the last game. He bagged five wickets for 31 runs in 7 overs as he could be amongst the wickets again.
  4. Kusal Mendis (SL): Wicketkeeper batter Kusal Mendis suffered a tough time in Auckland as he got out for a 16-ball duck. The right-handed batter, who has scored 2654 runs in 92 ODI innings with two hundred and 20 fifties, will look to get a significant score batting at no.3.
  5. Angelo Mathews (SL): With Sri Lanka getting all out cheaply for a mere 76, Angelo Mathews top-scored 18 off 25 in the first match. The right-handed player is a quality performer with 5853 runs in 189 innings with three tons and 40 half-centuries.
