New Zealand vs India- Previews and Betting Tips
After losing their opening game by seven wickets, India were all set to level things at Seddon Park. However, the rain had other plans as heavy downpours enforced the abandonment of the second ODI in Hamilton. The rain had initially interrupted the match with the game being reduced to 29 overs a side.
Following that, India were off to a flying start. The visitors had amassed 89 for 1 in 12.5 overs before the weather took a turn towards disappointment. The pair of Shubhman Gill and Suryakumar Yadav were unstoppable. With scores of 45*(42) & 34*(25), they seemed in sublime form and onward to taking India to a ginormous score. However, the subsequent interruption forced the match officials to call off the game and abandon it.
It all comes down to the final fixture of the series with India aching for a win. The hosts are in cruise control in the driver’s seat as they’re 1-0 up with confidence oozing from their dugout. As for India, what started off as a spectacular tour will turn to sorrow in no time. This exhilarating contest has brought plenty of opportunity for bettors worldwide to win some exciting cash. Three-way, match-winner, over-and-under, parlays, and in-game betting are some of the options we recommend for the best returns on investment. Although, we always advise you do your research before placing a bet.
The hosts will take complete advantage of playing at home and will undoubtedly use the conditions to their benefit. So far, they’ve looked like a well-balanced side with plenty of improvement in the batting department. Kane Williamson scored a marvelous 94* in the opening game and will be a key contributor with the bat. Alongside him will be southpaw Tom Latham and the hard-hitter Finn Allen. The left-hander now has 309 runs in 9 recent games, courtesy of a swashbuckling century in the opening match. Meanwhile, Finn has 264 runs in his past 8 games and will undoubtedly look to score some more.
As for the bowling department, it’s massively complimented the batters and majorly supported by Tim Southee's experience. The Kiwi has bagged 12 wickets in his past 7 games with an economy of just 4.82. With 10 wickets in his past 5 games, Matt Henry will accompany him to be the backbone of the department. This well-balanced squad will do everything in its strength to upset the odds for India.
Squad: Kane Williamson(C), Finn Allen, Devon Conway(wk), Glenn Phillips, Daryl Mitchell, Michael Bracewell, Mitchell Santner, Adam Milne, Tim Southee, Matt Henry, Lockie Ferguson
The lack of adaptability to the conditions away from home will certainly be a huge disadvantage for the young men in blue. However, with the guidance of certain experienced players on the side, India are very capable to level the series. Batter Shubman Gill, despite the loss and washout, has seemed to be in terrific shape. He has amassed 561 runs in just 10 games at a whopping average of 80.14. Meanwhile, Shreyas Iyer’s average has gone off the charts. At 94.50, he has 378 runs in just 7 games, will be a key contributor with the bat, and will stand between New Zealand and victory. However, India need to help themselves with the ball as they lack experience and confidence. Pacer Shardul Thakur has been rather economical, picking up 13 wickets in 8 games at 5.88. Kuldeep Yadav could certainly use the conditions and would love to bring his tally of 9 wickets in 6 games to double figures. India have plenty of match-winners; if anyone could get them the win, it is this team.
Squad: Suryakumar Yadav, Shubhman Gill, Rishabh Pant(wk), Washington Sundar, Shreyas Iyer, Shikhar Dhawan(C), Kuldeep Yadav, Sanju Samson, Arshdeep Singh, Umran Malik, Shardul Thakur
