In the second match of the New Zealand T20I Tri-Nation Series, New Zealand and Pakistan will clash in a 20 over affair. The match will take place at Hagley Oval, Christchurch on October 8. Here, I have handpicked the three best team and player betting tips for you from the NZ vs PAK match prediction.
The Hagley Oval in Christchurch will host all of the matches in this tri-series. While there haven’t been many high-scoring T20s at this ground, given the strength of both teams and the depth in their batting lineups, it is going to be a thrilling contest. Prior to the upcoming T20 World Cup, the sides have crucial matches to play and test out their batting, bowling and fielding. I have collated the best betting tips for the NZ vs PAK match predictions and you should keep on reading for a better understanding.
Take a look at the best team betting tips from the NZ vs PAK match predictions.
Pakistan are placed at the 4th place in the ICC Men’s T20I rankings, a spot above New Zealand. Talking about the form of the teams, New Zealand have won four of their last T20I matches at home. In 2022, the Blackcaps have lost just one T20I so far. While the players must be confident coming into this tri-series, they haven’t had any tough competition this year. NZ toured Ireland, Scotland, and the Netherlands for a T20I series before finishing a 2-1 series win in West Indies. There are many batters who can step up and be a match-finisher for New Zealand. They always have their reliable skipper Kane Williamson in the middle order. Martin Guptill adds value with his experience in the team over the years. NZ were the runners-up in the previous T20 World Cup. NZ stands out with their fierce bowling attack with the likes of Southee, Boult and the lightning-fast Ferguson, force to reckon with for Pakistan. Pakistan lost a series against England by 4-3 in a T20I series. PAK relies too much on Rizwan and Azam for doing their bid in the batting department while their middle order looks problematic after they faced cheap dismissals lately. Pakistan rely on their bowlers and the top order to win matches. The hosts have some big T20 stars in their squad and seem to have a clear edge in this contest. Having said that, they will be the match favourites from the NZ vs PAK head-to-head encounter and you should pick the odds of 1.72 offered by 1XBET for the same.

New Zealand and Pakistan will play in a 20 over brawl after October 2021. Pakistan have risen up to compete among the best squads in world cricket. Pakistan were the runners-up in the recently concluded Asia Cup 2022. Babar Azam and Mohammad Rizwan have become one of the most lethal openers and have established themselves as one of the most reliable duos over the time. Pakistan were engaged in a seven match T20I series against England before coming into this tournament and posted the scores of 85, 203, 17, 97, 17, 14 and 5 runs before losing their 1st wicket. Azam and Rizwan have sealed their place in the opening line-up and averaged at 43.41 & 52.53 respectively in the series. This averages at 61.85 per game for the 1st wicket. Looking at the opening scores, it looks like the opening duo do not believe in half-measure. In the 1st match of this Tri-nation series against Bangladesh, Pakistan posted 52 runs before Azam gave away his wicket. The last time the sides met, Pakistan scored 28 runs before their first dismissal. To capitalise on this betting tip, log on to 1XBET as they offer the odds of 1.85 for Pakistan to score over 28.5 runs before 1st dismissal.
I have picked Mohammad Rizwan to score high in the NZ vs PAK head-to-head match.
Mohammad Rizwan is the only batter in the squad of Pakistan to have consistently batted impeccably in the T20Is. His campaign this year is a testament of Rizwan’s batting capabilities. He has mustered 2337 runs in 58 T20I innings at an astounding average of 54.34. Rizwan had an amazing campaign batting in the T20 World Cup 2021 where he smashed 281 runs in 6 games with an average of 70.25. The opener has hit an extraordinary 1123 runs in just 23 T20I innings in 2021, at an average of 73.66. He has registered a century and 21 half centuries. He was the top-scorer in the Asia Cup 2022 with 281 runs in 6 games, averaging at a high 56.20. This year is going well for him as he averages at 63.45 so far, having played 14 games. His most recent exploit came against England in a long seven match long series where he posted the scores of 68, 88*, 8, 88, 63 and 1. With the exception of two games, he managed to not only score over our target but bagged half-centuries in four matches. In the 1st game of this Tri-nations series against Bangladesh, Rizwan posted an unbeaten 78 off 50 balls. He averages 33.00 against NZ and 52.50 playing in their country. The last time the sides met in the T20 World Cup 2021, he mustered 33 runs against NZ. With all facts considered, Mohammad Rizwan looks like the best batting candidate for this exclusive betting tip.
