New Zealand will take on an in-form Indian team in the penultimate T20 international of the five-match series at the Westpac Stadium in Wellington on Friday.

To be honest, I don’t have any nails left on my fingers after the third T20 international at Seddon Park in Hamilton. What is with New Zealand and Super Over heartbreaks! It was their game to win and India snatched a victory out of the jaws of defeat. India have attempted a number of times to win a T20 series in New Zealand in 11 years and for the first time, they have done it and Virat Kohli now, has a very special feather to add to his captaincy cap. India have already won the series as they lead 3-0 and they will be coming into the 4th match with a lot of confidence. On the other hand, for the Black Caps, they can only salvage some pride and not let India go 4-0 up in the series. In the meantime, we can make a lot of cash when these two sides will collide at the Westpac Stadium on Friday for the fourth match of the series. I have gathered three of the best player bets from this encounter and I will take you through it.

New Zealand vs India match tips

Kane Williamson is the highest run scorer in the series

He played an out-of-the-world knock against India in the third T20 international at Seddon Park in Hamilton on Wednesday. However, Williamson will be kicking himself for not being able to take his side home and save the series but the cricketing world is going to remember his knock of 95 runs. Now let’s see how the Black Caps skipper is going to make us a lot of cash on Friday – Williamson is now the highest run scorer in the series with 160 runs in three matches at an average of 53.33. He also has two half centuries in three games against India which in return has improved his average of 23.00 to almost 30.00 against the visitors. Williamson averages 40.75 at the Westpac Stadium in Wellington in this particular format of the game as he has managed to score 163 runs in four matches. Here are his four scores at this venue – 72, 34, 33, 24. Now, as you can already see Bet 365 is offering odds of 4.00 for the New Zealand skipper to be the top team batsman for the Kiwis, the numbers are not going to deceive you and you can have my word on that!

Ravindra Jadeja is the highest wicket taker in the series.

How many of you believe that Ravindra Jadeja is one of the most important members of India’s white-ball cricket squads? I know the answers to be honest because almost all of you will agree with my statement. Jadeja has proven himself to be an outstanding asset to this T20 and ODI squads and even Captain Kohli cannot deny that fact. Coming back to the point which you are looking for here – Jadeja is the highest wicket taker in the tournament with four wickets in three matches at an average of 14.75 and a strike rate of 15.00. He has the best economy rate (5.90) and the second-best average in this ongoing five-match T20 series against New Zealand. In his last five T20 international games, Jadeja has picked up six wickets and in this series, he has been the top team bowler in the second T20 international. The talented all-rounder has been extremely effective with the ball in the middle overs, helping his skipper with necessary breakthroughs and that is what makes him a special addition to the bowling unit of this Indian team. Bet 365 is offering odds of 5.00 for Jadeja to be the top team bowler for India in the fourth match and that could well be the likely outcome.

Williamson averages around 40 at Westpac Stadium

Let’s get back to the man of the hour who has won all the hearts despite New Zealand losing the third T20 to India in the super over. This is a sure shot bet and I can guarantee you that and that is because I have the statistics to substantiate my claims about this market. As you already know that Williamson averages 40.75 at the Westpac Stadium in Wellington and that clearly works in your favour. Moreover, if you notice the four scores that he has registered at this venue in T20 internationals, there is only one score, which is below the number that the market is suggesting. Adding to what I have already stated, the kind of form the New Zealand captain is in at this moment, he is likely to score a lot more than 33 runs if the Indian bowlers allow him to do so. Bet 365 is offering odds of 1.83 for Kane Williamson to score above 32.5 runs and if you believe the numbers, which do not lie obviously, then the outcome is going to be in your favour by hook or by crook!
