New Zealand will be at loggerheads with India in the second of the three match long T20I series starting from 20th November, Sunday which is a part of India’s tour of New Zealand 2022. The fixture is scheduled to be hosted at the Bay Oval, Mount Maunganui and the match will commence from 12:00 PM IST. Ahead of the matchday, I have handpicked three of the best money making betting tips for you from the NZ vs IND head-to-head encounter.
The three match long T20I series is now reduced to two after the first T20I at Wellington was washed out due to persistent rainfall. However, there is a forecast for rain too in the second match as well. The last T20I match played here was two years ago which was washed out and the rain could again spoil the game tomorrow. As we get ready for this exciting contest, let us have a look at our top team & player betting tips from the NZ vs IND head-to-head encounter.
Mentioned below are our top two team betting tips from the NZ vs IND match prediction. Take a look!
The Kiwis did fairly well in the recently concluded edition of ICC T20 World Cup, finishing at the top of their respective group but losing to Pakistan in the semis. The venue for this game is the Bay Oval in Mount Maunganui which is supposedly a batting paradise. The small size of the ground ensures that a lot of sixes should be hit here and history says the same. The Black Caps smashed sixes above our target on all five occasions in the last five matches played here. The Kane Williamson led side posted 14, 8, 9, 18 & 11 sixes in the last five games here. This sums up to 53 sixes from five games averaging 10.6 sixes per game which ranks certainly above our target. Therefore, I feel I have done no wrong in adding this to my list of picks today. New Zealand in the last five outings vs India smashed 7, 5, 6 & 3 sixes. Although they average at 5.25 sixes per game, this is surely going to change in the near future. At home, this number jumps to 6.00 sixes per game for the Kiwis. The Kiwis have a lot of power hitters in their bags in the form of opener Finn Allen, middle-order batsman Glenn Phillips & James Neesham at the end. Glenn Phillips was the one to hit the most number of sixes for New Zealand in the ICC T20 World Cup (8) with Finn Allen & Kane Williamson in line who smashed 5 sixes each. Therefore, it would be fair to place your money on New Zealand to hit over 6.5 sixes in this game. Our affiliate partner 1XBET has offered odds of 1.75 in NZ’s favour from the NZ vs IND match prediction.
After a washout in Wellington, the three match long T20I series has now been reduced to a two match affair. The venue for the second T20I is Bay Oval, Mount Maunganui which once used to be a big ground but not anymore. In the past we have seen batters hitting loads of sixes all over the park here. The average first innings score is 199 here. In every single match, barring one, over the five game period, the total match sixes hit at this venue have been above our target. In total, 94 sixes have been hit here in the last five matches which takes their average to a whooping 18.80 sixes per game. This number certainly ranks above our target, thus making it a safe and reliable betting tip for this game. In the last five games, teams batting here posted 28, 16, 14, 24 & 12 sixes per game. Both India & New Zealand have a lot of power hitters in the form of Finn Allen, Glenn Phillips, Hardik Pandya, Ishan Kishan and more. Therefore, expect this to be a high scoring affair where plenty of sixes will be hit. To capitalise on this, grab the odds of 1.83 offered by 1XBET from the NZ vs IND head-to-head encounter.
Let us have a look at our top player betting tip from the NZ vs IND head-to-head encounter.
Surya Kumar Yadav is the No.1 ranked T20I player at the moment. Having made his T20I debut in 2021, he made a special impression on the selectors and the audience. SKY has a huge range of his unorthodox shots that makes it very difficult for the fielding team to predict the area of his shots. Yadav has played a total of 38 T20I innings and scored 1284 runs at an average of 41.41. His innings is laced with a century and 12 half-centuries. He averaged at 34.75 in the Asia Cup 2022. He is coming off a fantastic campaign in the T20 World Cup and struck few spine-chilling shots to bag in the runs for the team. He posted the scores of 15, 51*, 68, 30, 61* and 14 runs in six games. This sums up to 239 runs, averaging at a fantastic 59.75. He has only played three games against New Zealand and posted 63 runs in 3 games, but his current momentum should take over to win you this bet. He averaged at 34.85 in 2021 that escalated to 43.33 in 2022 with 1040 runs in 29 T20I innings. This made him the top scorer of this calendar year. 1XBET offers the odds of 1.832 for Surya Kumar Yadav to score over 24.5 runs in the NZ vs IND head-to-head match and you should pick it for a hefty payday.
