Bangladesh have started their innings on the 2nd day of the ongoing Test match between the sides. They will continue to bat against New Zealand on the 3rd day of the play. The two match long series commenced at the Bay Oval in Mount Maunganui from January 1. I have collated the three of the best betting tips from the NZ vs BAN Day 3 match prediction.
What a day for Bangladesh, possibly one of their best days of overseas cricket ever. The bowling unit deserves praise for this. They often waver away deep into innings overseas, but they held it tight on the 2nd day of the play. Mehidy capitalised on that to get rid of the lower order quickly. New Zealand added only 70 to their overnight score. Before the day ended, Bangladesh went into stumps 153 behind. I have picked the best Team and player bets from the New Zealand vs Bangladesh Day 3 head-to-head match. Take a gander.
I have picked the best team bet from the NZ vs BAN match predictions. Take a look.
Bangladesh bundled the Kiwi batting at 398 runs on the second day of the play.They then went on to score 175 runs with the loss of 2 wickets. MH Joy is going strong and batting fantastically with 70 runs in his pocket so far. The skipper, Mominul Haque has stepped on the other end of the crease with 8 runs facing 4.3 overs so far. This will be the second match for the 21 year old batter and is expected to bat a little longer, having adjusted to the Kiwi bowling. On the other hand, Haque holds a Test average of 41.01 and has a good track record batting against the current opponents. Hence, scoring another 20 runs before losing a wicket should be a cakewalk for the duo, considering their current form. Pari Match offers the odds of 1.87 for Bangladesh to score over 194 runs before suffering the next loss and it looks a lucrative bet to miss out on for the NZ vs BAN head-to-head match.
I have picked MH Joy and the Tigers’ captain, Mominul Haque, for the best player bets with respect to the NZ vs BAN head-to-head showdown.
This will be the second career Test match for MH Joy. He played two Test innings against Pakistan a month ago scoring a total of 6 runs at an average of 3.00. Although he has an average of 42.50 in his First-class career, he was able to put across a single century in 16 innings. He will be facing a much challenging bowling front including pacers like Southee and Boult. He has scored 70 runs in the first innings, opening for the Tigers. Joy is expected to bundle out before scoring a hundred on the third day of the play. He ducked out on 4 instances in the 12 innings he played in the format recently which speaks volumes about his current batting form. The bookmakers agree on the same, considering the odds provided for the cause. With Pari Match offering the odds of 1.35 for the batter to bundle out before scoring 100 runs, it looks like a good bet to make money from.
M Haque is leading the Bangladeshi side in the 1st Test match against New Zealand. He is currently batting at 8 runs, having played 4.3 overs so far. Haque has one of the batting numbers in the squad right now. He has played 118 First-class innings and batted with an average of 41.21 in those games. His Test career average hovers around the same figure at 41.01 with 3363 runs in 47 games. The fact that his average escalates to 64.50, brings more weight to this lucrative betting tip. He has 6 matches against NZ and scored 516 runs including 2 centuries and a fifty in those innings. Therefore, he makes up for the batting pillar in the middle order to provide the stability needed in the later overs. He bats with an average of 33.97 batting third in the format, which looks like a reasonable average to put your bets on. With that being said, I would suggest you to place your bets on Mominul Haque to gather 50 runs in the game and Pari Match offers attractive odds of 3.50 for the same.
