AUS vs NZ Betting Tips

  • David Warner top scored for Australia twice in their series win over ZImbabwe and the opener is well worth backing as the home side’s highest run scorer in this game. Mitchell Starc took five wickets over the three games last week and the left-arm quick is our pick for Australia's top wicket taker against New Zealand.
  • Kane Williamson was the top scorer for New Zealand in his last ODI and we expect him to be their highest run scorer in this match. Trent Boult took 3-53 in his last appearance in this format and the pace bowler is our tip for New Zealand’s top wicket taker on Tuesday.
  • As he is in excellent form at the top of the order, we recommend backing David Warner to score over 35.5 runs in this fixture.

AUS vs NZ 1st ODI Match Prediction & Betting Tips

A three match ODI series between Australia and New Zealand gets underway at the Cazalys Stadium, Cairns on Tuesday afternoon. Australia beat Zimbabwe 2-1 in a recent ODI series which concluded on Saturday. New Zealand beat West Indies by the same margin last month. Read on as we preview this day-night match which is part of the Cricket World Cup Super League.. The first ODI begins in Cairns at 14:20 local time.

Australia suffered a shock defeat to Zimbabwe, their first on home soil to the opponents, in this format on Saturday. However, they were in excellent form during the rest of the series and will be strong in this series opener.

New Zealand have had a very successful couple of months touring Ireland, Scotland, Netherlands and West Indies. Although they won series in all of those countries, this series against Australia will be far tougher.

AUS vs NZ Match Toss Prediction

With humidity levels set to rise as the game progresses, we expect both captains to not want to deal with a moist ball in the final innings of the match and to choose to field first.

AUS vs NZ Pitch Report

This will be the first international played at this venue since Australia and Sri Lanka played out a drawn Test in August 2004. Pundits are looking forward to seeing a good batting wicket which will turn across the day.

Weather Report

Partly cloudy but no rain expected in Cairns during this game. The temperature will be in the 20s with the humidity levels above 80% by the end of the ODI.

Australia Team News & Playing 11

AUS Team News

The home side picked the same XI in the second and third ODIs against Zimbabwe and, with this pitch expected to turn, we anticipate that Ashton Agar will keep his place in the side for this game. There are no injury worries in the Australia squad.

AUS Key Players

  • David Warner - The left-handed opener is in excellent form across all formats. He averages 45.10 after 134 ODI innings.
  • Adam Zampa - The leg-spinner took the Player of The Series award last week. He took three wickets in both of the first two ODIs against Zimbabwe.
  • Mitchell Starc - The left-arm fast bowler took wickets across each game against Zimbabwe. The dismissal of Ryan Burl was his 200th dismissal in this format.

AUS Team Form

Australia had won three successive games in this format but the three wicket defeat to ZImbabwe on Saturday  put a stop to that run.

New Zealand Team News & Playing 11

NZ Team News

Captain Kane Williamson was unavailable for New Zealand’s last two ODIs and will come back to lead the side in this game. On a spinning wicket in Cairns, we expect spinning all-rounder Michael Bracewell to keep his spot with Jimmy Neesham dropping out.

NZ Key Players

  • Kane Williamson - The captain was only able to play the opening game of the series against West Indies due to injury but is now fully fit and averages 47.38 in ODIs.
  • Martin Guptill - The experienced right handed hit 57 in the final ODI in the Caribbean last month. It was his 58th score of 50+ in this format.
  • Trent Boult - The left arm quick no longer holds a New Zealand central contract but was still picked for this series. He is dangerous and economical with the ball at all stages of an innings in ODIs.

NZ Team Form

New Zealand have won 12 of their last 13 games in this format and comfortably won the last ODI against West Indies by five wickets. 

New Zealand Predicted Playing 11

Martin Guptill, Finn Allen, Kane Williamson (c), Devon Conway, Tom Latham (wk), Daryl Mitchell, Michael Bracewell, Mitchell Santner, Tim Southee, Trent Boult, Lockie Ferguson

🏆 Australia vs New Zealand Prediction

Although the rivalry does not reach the same levels as Pakistan v India or indeed Australia v England, any trans-Tasman series is always well fought with an edge to proceedings. We predict the series to begin with a very close game and are backing Australia to win.
