Cricket Betting Tips and Match Predictions: New Zealand Tour of England 2023 - 1st T20I Match - 30 August 2023
Here are the Fantasy Cricket Predictions and Betting Tips for the 1st T20I Match of New Zealand Tour of England which will be played on 30th of August at the Seat Unique Riverside, Chester-le-Street.
Current Form New Zealand:
New Zealand are currently placed at the 3rd position in ICC T20I Team rankings with a rating of 255.
New Zealand are in fine form when it comes to the shortest format of the game. They have recently defeated UAE in a 3 match T20I series by 2-1.
Prior to that, New Zealand also tied a 5 match T20I series at 2-2 against Pakistan away from home. Mark Chapman was the hero of the series and he is expected to do well against England as well.
Players to look out for:
1. Mark Chapman - He is in the form of his life. Chapman was named man of the series in the T20I series against Pakistan. He lifted his team from desperate situations multiple times during the tour and he will play an important role for the Kiwis in England Tour.
2. Matt Henry- His record in England is incomparable. Henry stood tall in the recently concluded Hundred Men's and Vitality Blast. He will surely hold the key to New Zealand's success in the upcoming T20I series.
Current Form England:
England are currently placed at the 2nd position in ICC T20I Team rankings with a rating of 259.
England haven't played a lot of matches in the shortest version of the game. However, the last time they did, England lost against Bangladesh by 3-0. They were not fielding their best side and Bangladesh were too good in their home conditions.
Players to look out for:
1. Will Jacks- Coming off great run in The Hundred Men's, Jacks will be looking forward to seal his position in the T20I squad. He is a power player and can take England off to a flyer in Powerplays.
2. Gus Atkinson - He was the leading wicket taker for Oval Invincibles in the recently concluded Hundred Men's tournament. Atkinson bowls with good pace and accuracy. He will certainly come good against New Zealand in the upcoming matches.
Let’s have a look at the squads:
