Cricket Betting Tips and Match Prediction - New Zealand v England 3rd T20I
The 3rd match of the five-match T20I series on the England tour of New Zealand will be played at the Saxton Oval in Nelson.
With two matches done, the series is well poised at 1-1. New Zealand looked a bit rusty at the Hagley Oval in the first T20I but pulled things back in the next one, stepping up their game in all the three departments.
On the other hand, England while trying few players like Saqib Mahmood and Lewis Gregory fell short of their performance in the opening encounter and paid the price by losing the 2nd T20I by 21 runs.
Martin Guptill looked on song in the second game, getting the Kiwis off to a good start with a 28-ball 41. All-rounder James Neesham then pummeled the score further with a 22-ball 42.
Chris Jordan, like in the last match, was the pick of the bowlers for England.
James Vince and Jonny Bairstow lost their wickets early while chasing. Thirties from Dawid Malan, Eoin Morgan and Chris Jordan did not prove to be enough in front of a bowling attack in which wickets were shared between Mitchell Santner, Tim Southee, Ish Sodhi and Lockie Ferguson.
With renewed confidence, New Zealand would look to ride on their momentum from here on. Both teams are expected to make a couple of changes to their playing XI for the next match.
Let's have a look at the probable playing XI of both teams:
New Zealand- Martin Guptill, Colin Munro, Tim Seifert, Colin de Grandhomme, Ross Taylor, James Neesham, Mitchell Santner, Tim Southee, Ish Sodhi, Lockie Ferguson, Blair Tickner
England- Jonny Bairstow, Dawid Malan, James Vince, Eoin Morgan, Sam Billings, Sam Curran, Lewis Gregory, Chris Jordan, Matthew Parkinson, Tom Curran, Patrick Brown
