New Zealand vs India- Previews and Betting Tips
After the series opener got washed out, the two teams locked horns at Bay Oval to gain an advantage over the other. Winning the toss, the Kiwis decided to challenge India with the ball. However, opener Ishan Kishan gave a stable start with his 31-ball 36 as India had put on 69 in 9 overs. Following that was entirely a Suryakumar Yadav show as the No.1 T20 batter went to score yet another hundred in the calendar year. His 51-ball 111 marched India to a mammoth total of 191/6.
The hosts were in sheer disappointment as their plans had been demolished. While chasing, the Kiwis were tied up with some exceptional bowling from the visitors. In a rather disappointing batting display, skipper Kane Williamson played a handy knock of 61 off 52 balls. As for the bowlers, every other bowler chipped in with a wicket but it was the surprise element of Deepak Hooda who claimed a 4-wicket haul. This achievement made him the first Indian player to have a century and a Four-wicket haul in Twenty20 Internationals.
Their recent form speaks a lot as the two teams take center stage for the ultimate showdown. India has won three of their past five encounters while the hosts have just secured two wins. India are in the driver’s seat and are the favourites to win today’s t20 match. For this exciting match-up, we recommend all the cricket lovers out there to gain some betting experience. All you smart brains with a knack for making the right calls, we advise three-way, ante-post, parlay, and in-game betting. These options provide the best returns on investment courtesy of the exceptional match odds on offer during live games.
With skipper Williamson out of the picture, the hosts will rely heavily on Devon Conway and Glenn Phillips to guide them over the line. In their recent 10 matches, they have scored 367 and 325 runs, respectively, and need to keep the runs coming in. Alongside their batting woes is the bowling that did poorly at Bay Oval. Although claiming a hattrick, Tim Southee has shown signs of leadership and class. He has bagged 17 wickets in his recent 10 matches and will lead the bowling department. Alongside him will be Mitchell Santner who has picked up 11 wickets in 7 games. The Kiwis have a well-balanced side, and every player is a match-winner for them.
Squad: Mark Chapman, Finn Allen, Devon Conway(wk), Glenn Phillips, Daryl Mitchell, James Neesham, Mitchell Santner, Ish Sodhi, Tim Southee, Adam Milne, Lockie Ferguson
After claiming a magnificent win in their previous match, the men in blue are in complete control of the series. They have the firepower in the top and middle order to get them the deserving whitewash. Courtesy of his century, Surya now has 469 runs in his recent 10 matches at an average of 78.17. He has been a lone warrior while he makes it look too easy. In this final encounter, the services of Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant & Ishan Kishan will be pretty necessary. As for the skipper, he has contributed to all departments. He has 141 runs and 8 wickets to his name in the past 7 games.
Meanwhile, the youngster turned T20 specialist will be the leader of the pace-bowling attack. Arshdeep has 15 scalps in 9 games and keeps improving every single game. The visitors have a squad that seems to be unstoppable.
Squad: Sanju Samson/Suryakumar Yadav, Ishan Kishan, Rishabh Pant(wk), Deepak Hooda, Shreyas Iyer, Hardik Pandya(C), Washington Sundar, Yuzvendra Chahal, Arshdeep Singh, Mohammed Siraj, Bhuvaneshwar Kumar

Pitch and weather Conditions
As the T20I series heads into the final game at McLean Park, the weather seems to be all set to cause interruption. Precipitation is expected to be between 60-80% during match hours, alongside humidity is high at 80%.

Meanwhile, the pitch is regarded as one of the best batting surfaces in New Zealand. The average first innings score is 171. The ball comes onto the bat nicely, giving batsmen value for their shots. However, the pitch slows down as the match progresses and the longer boundaries then come in handy for the bowlers.
