New Zealand and Sri Lanka will clash with each other in the 2nd ODI tomorrow at Hagley Oval.
In the first ODI, New Zealand beat Sri Lanka by 198 runs and have taken a 1-0 lead and will now look to seal it tomorrow.
Additionally, batting first, New Zealand put up a total of 274 and set Sri Lanka to chase down a target of 275.
However, the visitors had a very bad outing in the second innings and were wrapped up for just 76 runs and thus lost the game.
Therefore, they will now look to play to get a series leveler in the 2nd ODI and make it a thriller.
Thus, we have a great game yet again between these two teams tomorrow at Christchurch.
