NZ vs SL, 3rd T20I: Top Five Picks

  1. Tim Seifert (NZ): Chasing a target of 142, Kiwi opener Tim Seifert did light work of the run-chase as he hammered an unbeaten 79 off just 43 with three fours and six sixes. A right-handed batter is a good option at the top of the order.
  2. Adam Milne (NZ): Speedster Adam Milne is the leading wicket-taker in the two matches with six scalps. With 5/26 in the last game in Dunedin, Milne became the 3rd New Zealander to pick a five-wicket haul in T20Is. He wants to add more to his tally in the series decider.
  3. Daryl Mitchell (NZ): Right-handed middle-order batter Daryl Mitchell didn't get a chance to bat in the second game. He scored 66 off 44 in the opening encounter of the series, as he is the man in form for the home side.
  4. Kusal Perera (SL): Explosive left-handed player Kusal Perera has struck the most runs (88) for Sri Lanka in the series. With scores of 53 and 35 already, he has got starts as he is a worthy pick for the final clash.
  5. Kusal Mendis (SL): Sri Lanka's wicketkeeper batter Kusal Mendis scored 25 off just 9 in the first and ten off 5 in the second game. However, he has looked in touch in his brief stays and would like to convert the small starts into a big knock to help his side seal the series.
