AUS vs NZL 3rd Test Day 2 match prediction

Australia are hosting New Zealand in the third and final Test of the three-match series at the Sydney Cricket Ground and needless to say, the hosts have already taken the driver’s seat. Australia won the toss and opted to bat in the first innings of the Test and they got off to a good start courtesy a decent partnership between Joe Burns and David Warner. The hosts lost Warner after a while and thereafter it was a Marnus Labuschagne Show yet again. It would not have been possible without the support of Steve Smith, who scored yet another half century. Labuschagne, who scored his fourth hundred in seven innings is unbeaten at stumps on 130 and Matthew Wade is batting alongside him on 22. There’s so much to offer on Day 2 of this Test match and trust me there’s so much money to make as well. Would you want to make some money? Then just follow me!

Cricket player holding ball

Matthew Wade has just one fifty in nine Test matches

Matthew Wade will not score 50 or more @ 2.10

Wade might have started this knock on an attacking note but things in the morning might just ruffle the feathers for the left-hander. The New Zealand bowlers will be wary of the first hour conditions and will try and exploit the same with the fairly new ball which is just 10 overs old. Wade has not been on top of his form in this series nor in the series against Pakistan. He has played nine Test matches in 2019 and has just one half-century to his name that came against Pakistan. However, he has two centuries in the Ashes but that still does not push his average over 40 as it remains to be 38.00. Wade has played only three Tests against the Black Caps and has not scored a single fifty and his highest score is 38. Bet 365 is offering odds of 2.10 for Wade to score less than fifty on Day 2 and looking at these numbers I am sure you have figured the rest by now.

Ross Taylor averages 45.47 against Australia

Ross Taylor to be New Zealand’s top batsman in the first innings @ 4.00

Kane Williamson’s absence struck a huge blow to the Kiwis and now they will be heavily dependent on their veteran campaigner Ross Taylor. The batsman has been in decent touch with the bat and has definitely done better than his compatriots apart from Tom Blundell. Taylor picked his Test match in the final Test against England at Mount Maunganui, scoring a fifty and following up with a century in the second innings. He walked into this series and scored a brilliant 80 in the first Test at Perth but thereafter none of the New Zealand batsman has done exceedingly well and so hasn’t Taylor. However, his numbers against Australia are pretty decent as he averages 45.47 against them and has two hundred and three fifties. When he is playing against the Aussies at their backyard, he still has managed to maintain an average of 44.05 with one hundred and three fifties.Sportbet.io is offering odds of 4.00 for Taylor to be the top batsman for New Zealand in the first innings and there lies of chance of earning four times your investment.

Labuschagne usually gets out cheaply on day 2

Marnus Labuschagne to score under 185.5 @ 1.66

He has already flattened a depleted Kiwi side on the first day of the Test match with yet another scintillating hundred. Marnus Labuschagne is running riot with the bat in the longest format of the game and the New Zealand bowlers are finding it difficult to put a tap on this run-scorer who, at the moment, is scoring at free will. However, only once in four occasions he has remained not out on stumps and has gone on to add many runs the next day and that happened against Pakistan in the first Test of the series at The Gabba. In the remaining two occasions, Labuschagne respectively scored 36 and 33 on the next day of the match. The kind of Midas touch he is in right now, one will expect him to go and score a double century, but he somehow loses the track and gets dismissed cheaply on the next day. Sportsbet.io is offering odds of 1.66 against Labuschagne that he will score under 185.5 which seems to be the way to me for earning that extra moolah.
