New Zealand

Martin Guptill's unbeaten knock of 86 and Ross Taylor's 45 steered New Zealand to an eight-wicket victory over Pakistan at Nelson. Both these batsmen will be expected to score big again along with Colin Munro and Kane Williamson who scored 58 and 115 respectively in the first ODI. Tim Southee has taken five wickets in two games and he will be the danger man with the new ball. Trent Boult and Todd Astle have taken three wickets apiece and the Kiwis will want them to provide good support to Southee.

New Zealand Predicted Playing 11

  • Kane Williamson (c), Martin Guptill, Colin Munro, Ross Taylor, Tom Latham (wk), Henry Nicholls, Mitchell Santner, Tim Southee, Todd Astle, Lockie Ferguson, Trent Boult

Pakistan

Mohammad Hafeez played a crucial knock of 60 in the last game and took Pakistan to a respectable total of 246. While the team will want him to replicate that performance at Dunedin, they will also hope for strong contributions from Babar Azam and Azhar Ali at the top. Hasan Ali who notched up three big wickets in the first ODI and Mohammad Amir who was very economical in the second will be the main threats for New Zealand. Leg-spinner Shadab Khan will have an important role to play in the middle overs.

Pakistan Predicted Playing 11

  • Sarfraz Ahmed (c/wk), Azhar Ali, Imam-ul-Haq, Babar Azam, Mohammad Hafeez, Shoaib Malik, Shadab Khan, Faheem Ashraf, Mohammad Amir, Hasan Ali, Rumman Raees

­New Zealand vs Pakistan 3rd ODI Prediction

Pakistan now find themselves under a lot of pressure as they need to win this match in order to keep the series alive. So this will be a big test for their batting line-up that has a tendency to crumble under pressure. The visitors are struggling in both batting and bowling departments in these testing conditions and it will be very difficult for them to overcome an upbeat Kiwi side who have never lost an ODI at this ground. New Zealand appear extremely confident at the moment and we predict them to win this match and take an unsurpassable 3-0 lead.

Final Verdict: Back New Zealand to beat Pakistan in the third ODI at 1.41 on betfair and 1.36 each on Ladbrokes, Unibet and Betway.
