India and New Zealand will take on each other for the 3rd ODI of the India tour of New Zealand 2022 at the Hagley Oval, Christchurch on November 30, 2022 (Wednesday)
After New Zealand won the first ODI comprehensively, India wanted to square things off on Sunday but rain gods didn’t relent, resulting in another washed out encounter. The Wednesday game provides the Indian side a chance at redemption and make things alright now, ending the long wait for an ODI series win in New Zealand that have been eluding them for over a decade now.
Take a look at the best team bets from the IND vs NZ match prediction.
India have been a pretty conservative ODI side and even if their approach works more than not, it has been one of the major reasons behind the side failing to make inroads in the ICC knockout games. The first ODI in Auckland was a shining example of the same, with Shikhar Dhawan and Shubman Gill batting with an archaic approach right from the outset. As a matter of fact, India’s average first 10 overs score since Jan 2020 has been a very lackadaisical 48.1 with a balls per wicket ratio of 53.9. They have hit a boundary in every 7.9 balls that tells you the kind of team that India are. Among the top-eight ODI teams in the same period, India are at the sixth position among the runs scored in the first 10 overs and that is a direct inferring of the approach. In the last one year, that number stays close to 45.56 in the first 10 overs, making sure it is a cultural identification of sorts that determines how much the side would end up with eventually. As far as my own situation is concerned, I would bet big on them scoring under 53.5 runs in this NZ vs IND encounter in Christchurch with 1XBET offering odds of 2.25 for them. Then what are you waiting for? Go ahead and make the bet. You have a lot to gain.
I have picked both the batters to score high in the IND vs NZ match prediction.
When it comes to playing against India, you can trust Tom Latham to land a knockout punch every single time. I mean, what else explains the kind of dominance that the man has showcased against the Indian side in the last six years. The Kiwi batter, who has an average of 36.37 in ODI cricket, is definitely one of the best batters of our times but against India, his number increases to 65.08 and given that is a period of 19 matches we are talking about, we can infer everything we need to know. In 17 innings, he has five fifties and two centuries and in five of them, Latham has walked away with the player of the match award. His 846 runs against India is also the highest that the Kiwi wicket-keeper batter has scored in his ODI career that too batting at a strike rate of 99 - the highest that he has against any side in the ODI format. In 14 matches in 2022, Latham averages 55.8 at a strike rate of 101.3 with two half-centuries and as many centuries, making sure there is a whole lot of things to be explored. Then what are we waiting for? There is a lot of money to be made from this simple exercise of getting to bet on 1XBET who are offering odds of 1.832 for Latham to score over just 26.5 runs in this NZ vs IND 2nd ODI encounter.
Shreyas Iyer is not perfect as a batter. He has genuine issues against short bowling and sometimes, his shot selection is debatable. However, when it comes to ODIs, Iyer knows his batting knows no bounds. In 35 ODIs so far, Iyer has 1379 runs at an average of 49.25 with 13 half-centuries and 2 centuries. When he gets going in the format, runs come irrevocably fast and doesn’t stop at all. He has a balls per dismissal ratio of 49.8, which further compounds his credentials as one of the best ODI batters of our time and a superstar who could be the difference in the upcoming 2023 World Cup in India. What makes him such a wholesome ODI player is his balls per boundary ratio of 8.6. In four matches in New Zealand, Iyer has an average of 74.25 - and in every single game, he has crossed the 50-run milestone. That is some consistency, no? A balls per dismissal ratio of 75.8 in New Zealand further adds to his overall credentials. In 2022, Iyer has already played 13 ODIs for India, and holds an average of 62.89 and in 50% of those matches, Iyer has crossed the 50-run milestone. Then go for it, make yourself rich by placing a bet on 1XBET who are offering odds of 1.832 for Iyer to score over 29.5 runs in this NZ vs IND encounter in Christchurch.
