New Zealand vs India- Previews and Betting Tips
It was a dreadful start to the tour for the Kiwis at home. The hosts had no luck whatsoever in the shorter format of the game as India went on to win the series by 1-0. India’s stalwart Suryakumar Yadav was adjudged Man of the Series for scoring 124 runs in just 2 innings. Their previous outing was washed out and declared drawn courtesy of the DLS Method.
A 49-ball 59 from Devon Conway and 33-ball 54 from Glenn Phillips was the only good performance in a disappointing batting display. Courtesy of Mohammed Siraj’s 4/17 & Arshdeep Singh’s 4/37, India bowled out New Zealand for a mere 160. While chasing, skipper Hardik Pandya’s 18-ball unbeaten 30 got the visitors to meet the requirement of the DLS score, thus claiming a famous series win.
However, the stats read differently when it comes to the day-long format. The Kiwis have won 4 of their last five encounters against India with one match getting abandoned. The Kiwis whitewashed India 3-0 for the first time in 22 years and take the series at home. Although, a lot has changed in the past two years and India seems to be unstoppable at the moment. Since the series win, they are riding on plenty of confidence and would be looking to carry the momentum forward.
In this opening game, we predict the visitors to emerge victorious. This match-up creates an exciting opportunity for you all budding bettors out there. We highly recommend three-way, parlays, and in-game betting. These options will help you with maximum return on investment as the match odds are exceptional during live games. However, we advise you do your research to place reliable bets.
With Kane Williamson making his way back, a lot of pressure will be off the shoulder of the hosts. Plenty will be riding on the backs of Finn Allen and Michael Bracewell in the batting department. While Finn has 308 runs in 8 recent games, Bracewell has scored 260 in 9 matches at an average of 65. The well-balanced New Zealand side will desperately hope for their middle order to contribute in the necessary situation. As for the bowlers, Matt Henry has been remarkable with the ball, picking up 12 scalps in 5 games at an economy of 5.16. He will be accompanied by Mitchell Santner, who has 11 wickets in his recent 9 games.
Squad: Kane Williamson(C), Finn Allen, Devon Conway(wk), Glenn Phillips, Daryl Mitchell, Michael Bracewell, Mitchell Santner, Ish Sodhi, Tim Southee, Matt Henry, Lockie Ferguson
India will look at every possible way to take revenge on their previous whitewash against New Zealand. The visitors have a sharp and well-balanced squad with Shikhar back in action. Youngsters Shreyas Iyer and Shubman Gill will have plenty of eyes on them. Gill has 530 runs in his past 9 games at 75.71 while Shreyas has amassed 352 runs in just 6 games at a whopping average of 88. The duo will prove to be very lethal as their teammates, Suryakumar Yadav & Deepak Hooda, will be tested by the longer format. Meanwhile, the bowling department looks quite solid as well. Shardul Thakur will be hoping to keep his form going. He has picked up 14 wickets in his last 8 games while maintaining his economy under six. Accompanying him will be Yuzvendra Chahal who has bagged 10 wickets in just 4 games himself. India are hungry for the win and will come out all guns blazing to take over Eden Park.
Squad: Suryakumar Yadav, Shubhman Gill, Rishabh Pant(wk), Deepak Hooda, Shreyas Iyer, Shikhar Dhawan(C), Yuzvendra Chahal, Kuldeep Yadav, Arshdeep Singh, Deepak Chahar, Shardul Thakur
