New Zealand will play Ireland in the second ODI of the New Zealand tour of Ireland 2022. The match is scheduled to take place at the Village, Malahide, Dublin on July 12. Ahead of the matchday, I have carefully assorted the best money making betting tip for you from the IRE vs NZ head-to-head contest.
Heading into the second ODI, the Blackcaps would be on their toes and will definitely look to put up a much better show to secure a win which is much more comfortable. It was a close competition in the 1st ODI where Ireland scored 300 runs in 50 overs. NZ managed to score 305 runs with just 1 wicket remaining to somehow win the match. To learn more, have a look at the best betting tip from the IRE vs NZ head-to-head contest.
Let’s have a look at the best team betting tip from the IRE vs NZ head-to-head contest.
Martin Guptill and Henry Nicholls will be seen opening the innings for New Zealand and the fire power in their batting is capable enough to pull off a great opening partnership. It's a fact that the pair of Guptil and Nicholls partnered for 12, 22,12 and 11 runs in the last four ODIs but that was against a more mature bowling attack which consisted of the likes of Fred Klaassen and Logan van Beek. Martin Guptill has played a total of 190 ODI matches and averages over 42. He boasts of a highest score of 237 not out runs and has hit 17 hundreds and 38 fifties. He is accompanied by Finn Allen on the other batting end. In the 1st match of the series NZ created an opening partnership of 11 runs whereas IRE faced their first loss after 6 runs. Ireland has a much fragile batting order with Balbirnie and Stirling opening for the team in the second ODI. If you feel the same, head over to 1XBET and grab the odds of 1.732 for New Zealand to score higher than Ireland at the first dismissal IRE vs NZ head-to-head encounter.
I have picked both the batters to score belo our desired target from the IRE vs NZ match prediction. Have a look.
Andy Balbirnie made his first first-class hundred in the Intercontinental Cup against Netherlands in 2017, before hitting his maiden ODI hundred in the winter of 2017-18 - against UAE then Scotland. He has played a total of 83 ODI matches, scoring 2542 runs with an average of 32.58. His career in the List-A format has been even better. He has scored 4114 runs in 118 games with an average of 37.74. While all this looks bright, his recent form has not been up to the mark. He recently came of playing from the Ireland Inter Provincial Limited Over Cup 2022 where he played 5 games and scored 110 runs at an average of 22.00, falling under our radar. He has played three games against New Zealand where he could only muster 45 runs at an average of 15.00. That includes their recent outing against New Zealand where he smashed 9 runs in the game. To in some money over this betting tip, log on to 1XBET to earn a profitable return by picking the odds of 1.832 for NZ to have the higher opening partnership from the IRE vs NZ match prediction.
An aggressive, but organised left-hander from Canterbury, Henry Nicholls' burgeoning domestic form brought him to the notice of the New Zealand selectors, who called him up to the national team in the 2015-16 home season. He made his debut in 2015 and has been actively involved in the batting department of the team. He has played 54 ODI matches where he amassed 1494 runs at an average of 34.74. He has been overshadowed by many prolific batters in the team. In the 1st ODI of the series, he managed to register 7 runs from 10 balls before he handed over his wicket to the Irish. This year, they played a three match ODI series against Netherlands where Nicholls registered 57, 19 and 2 runs. From averaging at 40.00 in 2021 to 21.25 in 2022, his batting form has deteriorated recently. This included his form in his last five innings where he posted the scores of 18, 57, 19, 2 and 7 runs. Evidently, he was dismissed before scoring 35 runs in his last five innings and is expected to carry on in the second IRE vs NZ ODI. 1XBET offers the odds of 1.832 for Nicholls to score under 34.5 runs in the IRE vs NZ head-to-head match and you should take it for a hefty payday.
