New Zealand would aim for a series whitewash when they take the field against Ireland in the third ODI at The Village, Malahide, Dublin on Friday, July 15. After chasing a 301-run total with one wicket and one ball remaining, the visitors tightened their grip in the second ODI to register a 3-wicket win with 71 balls remaining.
The Ireland team were impressive against India in the recently-played two T20Is and they have left a fine impression in the New Zealand ODIs as well. New Zealand might be playing with their second-string team but the likes of Martin Guptill, Tom Latham, Henry Nicholls and Mitchell Santner are still in the team. Ireland will give it their all for a consolation win against the Kiwis on Friday. As we gear up for the third and final ODI, I have brought to you the best three betting tips from the IRE vs NZ 3rd ODI head-to-head encounter.
Mentioned below is the top team bet from the IRE vs NZ head-to-head contest.
In absence of their regular captain Kane Williamson and key bowlers, the New Zealand batting unit has looked under a bit of pressure in Ireland. They chased down a 301-run target in the first ODI but one ball and one wicket was all which remained with them. They saved the match by the skin of their teeth. New Zealand scored 18 fours in the second ODI and 26 in the first courtesy Michael Bracewell hundred which consisted of 10 fours. New Zealand openers have failed to establish a partnership which can lay down a solid foundation. Martin Guptill scored a fifty in the first ODI when Finn Allen could manage only six runs. Guptill was dismissed for a duck in the second match while Allen hit a fifty. Will Young has scored 0 and 1 run from his two outings, captain Tom Latham scored 55 runs in the second ODI but that came in 73 balls and Henry Nicholls has failed to cross the 20-run mark. Michael Bracewell scored a hundred in the first match and 42 in second, a third impressive knock is well on cards but Ireland bowlers would come prepared for him. The Ireland bowling unit has been impressive anyway. They took nine wickets in the first match and gave New Zealand a run for their money. In the second match, New Zealand had to lose seven wickets to gun down 217 runs. The absence of express pacers Trent Boult, Tim Southee and Kyle Jamieson have also put pressure on New Zealand batters who are carrying the onus to win matches for the team with superior batting performances. New Zealand look set to score over 20 fours but not more than 26.5 four in the third IRE vs NZ ODI. If you feel the same, head over to Pari Match and grab the odds of 1.77 for New Zealand to score under 26.5 fours from the IRE vs NZ 3rd ODI head-to-head encounter.
Harry Tector and Jonny Bairstow are my top two player betting tips for the IRE vs NZ 3rd ODI. Have a look at it for reaping the best returns.
Harry Tector was on fire when India toured Ireland for a 2-match T20I series. The middle-order batsman put his team on the cusp of a win in both the matches. In the first match he scored 64 unbeaten runs which fired Ireland to 108 runs in a match which was reduced to 12 overs. In the second match, he again anchored the innings as Ireland fell just four runs short of the 226-run target set by India. Tector did the same in the first ODI against New Zealand when he scored 113 runs off 117 balls to help Ireland post 300 runs on the board. New Zealand somehow managed to win the match with a wicket left and a ball to spare. In the second ODI Harry managed to score only four runs but he is expected to score at least over 23.5 runs on Friday. At The Village in Malahide, the right-hander has played 10 matches and scored 470 runs at an average of 52.22. The 22-year-old youngster has played a total of 22 ODIs and scored 787 runs at an average of 43.72. In his short ODI career, he has hit as many as seven fifties and a hundred. Harry Tector has a knack of leaving impact against a stronger opposition. In his last three ODIs ahead of the series - he scored 52, 54* and 53 (all of them against West Indies). He hit 79 off 68 balls against South Africa in July 2021. With form, confidence and benefit of home conditions on his side, Harry Tector looks set to score high against a vulnerable New Zealand bowling unit. If you feel the same, head over to 1XBET and grab the odds of 1.832 for Harry Tector to score over 23.5 runs from the IRE vs NZ 3rd ODI head-to-head encounter.
Will Young, New Zealand's number three in the series Will Young has played a total of seven ODIs since his debut in March 2021. Young has scored 237 runs at an average of 47.40 so far but his confidence has taken a hit in the last couple of months. The 29-year-old got out after scoring just one run in the series opener, while in the second match he was dismissed on a golden duck which left New Zealand reeling at 0 for 2 after the first two balls of the first over from Mark Adair. The right-hand batsman was part of the New Zealand Test team which lost 0-3 against England in June. Young scored a run each in the two innings at Lord's before scoring 47 and 56 in the second Test at Nottingham. In the third and final Test, he could manage only 20 and 8 runs. The New Plymouth-born batter has scores of 0, 1, 120, 1 and 103* in his last five ODI innings. Both the hundreds have come against Netherlands. Scoring over 28.5 runs could be difficult for a struggling Young in front of an inspired Ireland bowling unit. If you feel the same, head over to 1XBET and grab the odds of 1.832 for Will Young to score over 28.5 runs from the IRE vs NZ 3rd ODI head-to-head encounter.
