Big-hitting Kiwi Munro could catch the eye

Left-hander can rack up the runs

Opener Aaron Finch leads Australia's Twenty20 side against Sri Lanka
1 of 1

New Zealand v South Africa
Sky Sports 2, 6am Friday
New Zealand are 6-5 outsiders for their Twenty20 clash with South Africa in Auckland but the Eden Park boundaries may not be big enough to contain Kiwi batsman Colin Munro.

The powerful left-hander smashed an unbeaten 50 off just 14 balls against Sri Lanka at the venue last January and followed up with an innings of 56, including six sixes, against Pakistan.

He made 101 against Bangladesh in his penultimate Twenty20 international on January 6 and looks overpriced to be man of the match.

Recommendation
C Munro to be man of the match
1pt 12-1 general

Australia v Sri Lanka
BT Sport 3, 8.40am Friday
Australia's Test team are already in India so a shadow squad has been named for the home Twenty20 series against Sri Lanka.

There is plenty of quality among the Aussie reserves, however, with Aaron Finch and Big Bash winner Michael Klinger opening the batting and James Faulkner and Pat Cummins among the fast-bowling options.

Sri Lanka have veteran paceman Lasith Malinga back fit and they won their warm-up game against a Prime Minister's 11 with opener Niroshan Dickwella scoring 47 off 26 balls.

Dickwella had a good Twenty20 series in South Africa, scoring 43, 22 and 68, and he finished the one-day series against the Proteas with blistering innings of 74, 58 and 39 (off 19 balls).

Recommendation
N Dickwella top Sri Lanka runscorer
1pt 7-2 general

He smashed an unbeaten 50 off just 14 balls against Sri Lanka at the venue last January and followed up with an innings of 56, including six sixes, against Pakistan
