nz vs aus Match Prediction & Analysis

Australia came to New Zealand for a 5-match T20I series and they rested some of their first choice players. They are looking to fill the vacant spots in their squad for the upcoming T20I World Cup in India. New Zealand on the other hand have decide to play their full strength squad barring a few injured players to test their squad balance. New Zealand defeated the Aussies comfortably by 53 runs and will look to continue their winning streak with yet another win in this match. Australia will need to level the series here and they might be pushed to playing the catching up game later in the series.

Teams Preview

New Zealand Preview

New Zealand were reduced to 19/3 before Devon Conway (99* runs) and Glenn Philips (30 runs) shared a massive 74-run partnership to bring their innings back on track. Neesham played a 16-ball 25 run cameo to lead their innings in the final overs alongside Conway. They finished with a massive 184 runs on board with Conway stranded at 99* at the end.   

The pace duo of Tim Southee and Trent Boult swing the ball in both ways to claim 2 wickets each very early in the game. Ish Sodhi then ran through the Aussie middle and lower order claiming 4 wickets. Mitchell Santner and Jamieson chipped with a wicket each in the match.  

Top players to bet on:

Devon Conway – Conway`s last 5 T20 inning scores read as 99*, 91*, 97*, 69*, & 50 respectively. We expect him to continue his red hot form in this match too and help his team post yet another big score on board.

Ish Sodhi – Sodhi had bowling figures of 4-0-28-4 in the match. He continued the good work by the pacers in the first half and never allowed the opposition to build any momentum in the chase.    

New Zealand Predicted Playing XI:

Martin Guptill, Tim Seifert (wk), Kane Williamson (c), Devon Conway, Glenn Phillips, James Neesham, Mitchell Santner, Kyle Jamieson, Tim Southee, Ish Sodhi, Trent Boult

Australia Preview

Aussie top order danced to the swing tunes of Kiwi pacers as they were reduced to 19/4 in 4 overs. Wickets continued to fall and they were bowled out for 131 runs with 6 players being dismissed for single digit scores. Mitchell marsh played a good cameo of 45 runs in 33 balls but was never threatening to chase the total.

Jhye Richardson and Daniel Sams were excellent with the new ball as they claimed 2 wickets each in the match. Marcus Stoinis chipped in with a wicket while the likes Agar, Zampa, and Kane Richardson failed to take wicket in the match.

Top players to bet on:

Aaron Finch – Finch is having a poor run of form in the T20 matches off late. He is a quality player and we expect him to make a comeback in this match with a big score.

Daniel Sams – Sams gave away just 10 runs and picked up 2 crucial wickets in the power play but his figures took a beating as he leaked 30 runs in his last 2 overs.

Australia Predicted Playing XI:

Aaron Finch (c), Matthew Wade (wk), Josh Philippe, Glenn Maxwell, Marcus Stoinis, Mitchell Marsh, Daniel Sams, Ashton Agar, Jhye Richardson, Kane Richardson/Andrew Tye, Adam Zampa

Weather Conditions

Venue Details

Dunedin is a batting paradise and we saw scores in excess of 170 runs in all 3 super smash matches played here. We expect a run feats in this match with scores around 180 runs easily.

Toss: To Bat

Batting first is the best option in this match as the pitch slows down a little in the second innings. Teams posted 190+ scores in 2 of the last 3 matches here.    

NZ vs AUS Winning Prediction

New Zealand has a very well settle batting and bowling attack with good depth in the batting department. James Neesham and Mitchell Santner will be expected to play the fifth bowler`s role and they are more than capable of doing it with ease. Australia needs to sort their batting line-up and their T20 regulars like Finch, Wade, Stoinis, and Maxwell must take more responsibility. They have a fairly inexperienced bowling attack but has the very skill set to shine at this stage.  We expect New Zealand to continue their winning momentum in this match too.

New Zealand will win the match & lead 2-0
