New Zealand will square off against India in the fifth and final T20 international of the series at the Bay Oval, Mount Maunganui on Sunday.
Two Super Over wins in two games in a span of three days – Virat Kohli must be feeling absolutely amazing because both the games were pulled out of the jaws of defeat. I am still wondering how on earth New Zealand took two almost-sealed games to Super Over and quite ridiculously, lost both of them. India did not have a great day on the field either with the bat (apart from Manish Pandey), or with fielding and yet they have gone 4-0 up in the five-match series at New Zealand’s backyard. Now, Kohli will be looking to go for the Full Monty and New Zealand will look to salvage one moment of pride in the final game of the series. I am sure you will be looking to indulge yourself in this forthcoming match in order to win some money and here I am, to help you do that. Don’t fret as I have assorted three of the best markets to bet on. So, let’s get started:
The destructive New Zealand opener has had a decent series so far with the bat. If only the rest of the batting lineup had stepped up, the result might have been shown a different picture. Let’s not get deviated from the Munro as he is going to make us a lot of money. In four matches, Munro has gone on to score 163 runs (making him the second highest run scorer in the series and the highest run getter for New Zealand) at an average of 40.75 and that includes two solid half-centuries as well. When it comes to head-to-head encounters, Munro is the highest run scorer with 411 runs in 11 matches at an average of 41.10. The numbers get even more interesting as he holds an impeccable record at the Bay Oval, Mount Maunganui in T20 internationals, having scored 307 runs in five matches at a brilliant average of 61.40, including two centuries and one fifty. Munro is the batsman to watch out for in the upcoming final T20 of the five-match series against India on Sunday. Bet 365 is offering odds of 4.33 for the left-hander to be the top team batsman for the Kiwis and that is likely to happen.
I am not done with Munro yet so don’t lose your concentration because this is where it gets more interesting. As you are already aware of the numbers that Munro has notched up, it will be easier for me to build on this market. You have got to understand that Munro has had a phenomenal record at Bay Oval, Mount Maunganui and he will only be looking to build on that tally of his. In the five matches he has played at this venue, he has two centuries and one fifty, which tells you most of the story so as to why I feel that he is going to score a fifty in this game. Moreover, Munro will be coming into the fifth match of the series on the back of a solid innings of 64 from just 47 balls in the fourth encounter today. Bet 365
Is offering odds of 3.40 for Munro to score a fifty in the upcoming clash against India at Bay Oval, Mount Maunganui on Sunday and if we are to believe the statistics and the numbers, I have put in front of you, that is the most likely outcome.
New Zealand’s one of the most prolific openers of all time has had a rather quiet series with the bat unlike other batsmen. However, Martin Guptill is not done yet as he would want to turn things around for the Black Caps in the final game of the series. We are all aware of his capability of tearing down any bowling unit at the top of the order, but he has just not lived up to his expectations. However, we do not want a lot of runs from him; we just need him to score 26 runs for us to win the bet. Now we will take a look at his last 10 T20 scores – 4, 31, 33, 30, 60, 43, 10, 42, 22 and 83 – as you can clearly see, the right-hander has gone past the 26-run mark seven times in these 10 occasions. In this ongoing series against India, Guptill has gone past the 26-run mark three times on four occasions. Moreover, in four matches that he has played at this particular venue, Guptill has gone on to score 182 runs at an average of 45.50 and that straightaway works in your favour. Bet 365 is offering odds of 1.83 for Martin Guptill to score over 25.5 runs and as I have already placed the statistics on your plate, you know what you are required to do..
