Devon Conway looked good again with his 34-ball 42 and Daryl Mitchell also chipped in with 48 runs.

The likes of Trent Boult and Tim Southee are also part of the squad. West Indies, on the other hand, have fielded the same squad which competed against India in the recently-concluded series.

Devon Conway, Kane Williamson and Nicholas Pooran are my top three player betting tips for the WI vs NZ 3rd T20I. Have a look at it for reaping the best returns.
New Zealand opener Devon Conway scored 42 runs off 34 balls in the first match and made it clear why he is considered as one of the most consistent T20I batters. In the first match he had scored 43 runs off 29 balls. The 31-year-old has played a total of 22 T20I matches and scored 687 runs at an average of 49.07 and a strike rate of 138.78. He has four fifties to his name in the format. The Southpaw has scores of 42, 43, 46 and 36* in his last four T20I outings. What's impressive is that Conway hadn't played a single T20I game this year ahead of the series. In 2021, he played 14 T20I matches and scored 428 runs at an average of 47.55. Conway has played five T20I matches against West Indies and scored 191 runs at 63.33 and strike rate of 148.06. A high-scoring innings in excess of 41 runs is expected from him in the third match. If you feel the same, head over to 1XBET and grab the odds of 1.86 for Devon Conway to score over 41.5 runs from the WI vs NZ 3rd T20I head-to-head encounter.
Ahead of the first match against West Indies, New Zealand captain Kane Williamson last played a T20I match on November 14, 2021. The match was the final of the T20 World Cup 2021 against Australia in which Williamson scored 85 runs off 48 balls. The 32-year-old missed out on many international assignments due to his recurrent elbow injury. He featured in the IPL 2022 where he played 13 matches and scored 216 runs at an average of 19.63. His last two outings were Test matches against England in June. He scored 2 and 15 at Lord's and 31 and 48 at Leeds. Lack of game time and no T20I international would have made many think that scoring high runs in the very first T20I match of they year would be difficult for the Kiwi star. However, defying all predictions he proved why he is considered as one of the modern day greats of the game during the first T20I. Williamson top-scored for his team with 47 runs off 33 balls. His knock which consisted of four fours and two sixes helped New Zealand post a 186-run target and later win the match by 13 runs. In the second match, he hit a cracking boundary off the first ball but was caught behind stumps off Obed McCoy's bowling on the second delivery. The last seven T20I innings from Williamson have seen him score 4, 47, 85, 5, 40*, 28 and 0 runs. The right-hand batter has played a total of eight T20I matches against West Indies and scored 159 runs at 22.71. In the West Indies he has played four matches and scored 107 runs at an average of 26.75.33. Overall, he has played 76 T20I matches and scored 2072 runs at an average of 32.37 He has 14 fifties to his name in the format. The West Indies conditions would tend to suit Williamson who would give it his all to gear up handsomely for the upcoming T20 World Cup 2022. West Indies bowlers could again face a difficult time against Williamson on Monday. If you feel the same, head over to 1XBET and grab the odds of 1.88 for Kane Williamson to score over 29.5 runs from the WI vs NZ 3rd T20I head-to-head encounter.
West Indies captain Nicholas Pooran has scored only 16 runs from the first two matches in the series and would look for a decent outing in the dead rubber on Monday. The 26-year-old scored decently in the first two T20I matches after being named the permanent white-ball captain of West Indies, He scored 34 and 74 not out runs against Bangladesh at home in July, but since have faced trouble against stronger opposition in India and New Zealand. In the five T20I series against India, the southpaw scored 18, 14, 22, 24 and 3 runs. That has been followed with 15 and 1 against New Zealand. In complete contrast, Pooran's T20I record in 2022 depicts a different picture. He has scored 553 runs in 18 matches at an average of 36.86. Five fifties have come off his bat during the period. Pooran would definitely look to work out his way through the string of these low scores. The T20 World Cup 2022 is round the corner and the West Indies captain must be very well aware of his importance to the team. A well-timed and mature innings from Pooran may very well be on cards on Monday. If you feel the same, head over to 1XBET and grab the odds of 1.88 for Nicholas Pooran to score over 27.5 runs from the WI vs NZ 3rd T20I head-to-head encounter.
