West Indies Women and New Zealand Women will be locking horns in the 2nd of the three match T20I series which is a part of New Zealand Women’s tour of West Indies. West Indies Women will welcome their opposition at the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium, North Sound, Antigua on October 1. The match will commence from 11:00 PM IST. Meanwhile, I have taken the opportunity to assort three of the best money making betting tips for you from the WI-W vs NZ-W head-to-head contest.
West Indies Women had the better of New Zealand Women as they clinched a narrow one run win in the five match long T20I series. Amelia Kerr’s three for 16 & Hannah Rowe’s late 27 run cameo went in vain. It will be exciting to see how things pan out when the two sides go head-to-head in the next game. As the two teams head for their second face off in this forthcoming series, we have collated the top WI-W vs NZ-W betting tips for you from their head-to-head encounter.
Let us have a look at the top team betting tip from the WI-W vs NZ-W head-to-head contest.
WI Women is currently playing a three match long bilateral T20I series against New Zealand Women. They began the series by winning the first match by 1 run. It was a very tough game between these two teams. Even though West Indies sealed the victory, their opening pair struggled to deliver a strong performance with the bat in the recent matches. WI Women's opening pair has revolved around these players - Hayley Matthews, Natasha McLean & Deandra Dottin. WI Women posted scores of 1, 9, 21, 7 & 34 runs in their last five matches before the fall of the first wicket. This sums up to just 72 runs from five innings, averaging only 14.4 runs per innings before 1st dismissal. This entails a 60% efficiency of WI-W to post a total below our target. The openers have failed to come up with a good start to WI Women’s innings multiple times. WI Women’s scores in the last five head-to-head matches read - 1, 60, 25, 11 & 42 runs before the fall of the first wicket. Although they have averaged close to 27.8 vs NZ Women but their recent form says otherwise. On the flip side, NZ Women has done a fine job until now and has managed to restrict the opposition’s opening partnership to score low for the first wicket. They leaked just 2.8 runs on average before picking up the first wicket against the opposition they faced. Therefore, it shows that the NZ Women bowlers will not make it any easier for the already struggling opening pair of Hayley Matthews & Natasha McLean. The numbers clearly work in favour of this betting tip thus making it a strong and a reliable one. Our affiliate partner 1XBET has offered odds of 1.85 in WI Women’s favour to score under 16.5 before 1st dismissal from the WI-W vs NZ-W match prediction.
We have chosen Hayley Matthews and Sophie Devine to perform well for their respective teams in the WI-W vs NZ-W player betting tips. Take a look below!
Hayley Matthews, a 24-year-old talented player from West Indies is my first pick from this forthcoming contest. She played for many big teams like Trailblazers, Velocity, Welsh Fire (Women), Warriors Women etc. Matthews made her most telling performance in the T20 World Cup final, where West Indies were up against three-time champions Australia. Matthews took on the Australian bowlers with the audacity of youth, hitting 66 off 45 balls to help her team chase down 149 and win their first world title. She made her T20 International debut back in 2014 against New Zealand (Women). Since then she has made 1148 runs in 65 innings averaging 18.22 which ranks just above our target. She scored runs with a destructive strike rate of 104.45. Prior to the start of the T20I series, WI-W engaged in a three match ODI series with New Zealand Women wherein she made 88 runs in 3 matches averaging 29.3. Her scores in the ODI series read 40, 46 & 2 runs. Against New Zealand Women in T20Is, she smashed 157 runs from 7 games averaging 22.42. She is coming off after having a fantastic season in the Women’s CPL wherein she posted scores of 46, 22, 18, 15 & 25* runs in the last five games. Although she is averaging a little low at this venue, we expect her to make a comeback in the forthcoming match. Therefore, we have sided with Hayley Matthews to score over 17 runs in this game. Our affiliate partner 1XBET has offered odds of 1.87 in Hayley Matthews's favour to score over 17.5 from the WI-W vs NZ-W head-to-head contest.
From a bowler who sometimes batted at No. 11, Sophie Devine has developed herself into one of the leading all rounders and most destructive batters in the game. In early 2020 she became the first player, male or female, to score five consecutive T20I fifty-plus scores - a run she extended to six in a row at the beginning of the 2020 T20 World Cup in which she also captained New Zealand. This 32-year-old right-handed batter scored 2792 runs in 105 matches averaging 30.34 in her T20I career thus far. With a brilliant strike rate of 123.21 she got 1 century and 17 half centuries as well. Against West Indies Women, she scored 356 in just 18 innings with an average of 22.25. Her last five scores in WT20Is read 23, 51*, 53, 1 & 24 runs. This entails a 60% efficiency of Matthews to post a total above our target in this game. She is having an amazing time this year and has averaged the most if we look at her glorious career. In the year 2022, Sophie has gathered 231 runs so far from 7 matches at an remarkable average of 38.50. In the recently concluded edition of the Women’s Hundred Competition, Devine gathered 103 runs from six matches and was the 2nd highest run-getter from her side Birmingham Phoenix. Her consistent performance depicts her dedication as a batter. If we consider his recent performance with the bat, it would be an absolutely foolish decision to not pick her in this forthcoming contest. Our affiliate partner 1XBET has offered odds of 1.87 in Sophie Devine's favour to score over 23.5 from the WI-W vs NZ-W head-to-head contest.
