New Zealand vs Australia 3rd T20 Prediction & Betting Tips

New Zealand have won their previous two matches thus a win the upcoming game will seal the series for them. Australia were good in the last match but not quite good enough to beat the hosts. They face a must win situation and we can expect them to go all out at the hosts. The 3rd T20 promises to be a mouth watering encounter. It will be played at the Westpac Stadium and is expected to start at 7:00 PM local time.

We’re trying to find a loophole in this New Zealand team - can’t get one. They just look too strong. Australia is a decent side but they have been completely dominated by the hosts. New Zealand batting look a real force. Devon Conway, Glenn Phillips batted well in the first match while Martin Guptill, Kane Williamson and Jimmy Neesham propelled them to 219 in the second T20I. The bowling was not quite up to the mark in the previous game but all of them are quality bowlers who, for sure shot, will come back hard at Australia in the next match.

For Australia, runs from Maxwell and Finch is what they need to challenge the hosts. Both of them have been poor. Marcus Stoinis,Josh Philippe and Mitchell Marsh have played some good knocks but to get past this New Zealand team, they need to come together and deliver a collective performance. Australia would expect a better effort from their bowlers who have been wayward in the two games. Against, this Kiwi batting, it won’t be easy though.

New Zealand Team News & Playing 11

NZ Team News

New Zealand would like to close the series in the third T20I itself thus we expect them to field the same XI. If they win this, the next match could see them making some changes.

NZ Key Players

  • Martin Guptill - Guptill marked his return to form with a magnificent 97. He’s a player that can decimate the opposition on his own. Now since he’s got the monkey off his shoulder, he can play freely which makes him very dangerous
  • Kane Williamson - The Kiwi skipper has been in fine form for a quite a while now. He was in fine form in the Super Smash and played well in the second T20I as well. He can be backed to come good in the next game.
  • Mitchell Santner - Santner is a valuable all rounder. He picked up four wickets in the last match. It’s not easy to hit a left arm spinner and we expect him to cause plenty of trouble for the Aussie batsmen

NZ Team Form

Kiwi’s are in fine form and have won both the previous T20Is of the series.

New Zealand Predicted Playing 11

Martin Guptil, Tim Seifert (WK), Kane Williamson (C), Devon Conway, Glenn Phillips, James Neesham, Mitchell Santner, Kyle Jamieson, Tim Southee, Ish Sodhi, Trent Boult

Australia Team News & Playing 11

AUS Team News

Australia head coach Andrew McDonald said that they will look to change their combination in the next game. We could see them add Andrew Tye, Jason Behrendorff or Riley Meredith at the expense of Ashton Agar

AUS Key Players

  • Josh Philippe - He was in fine form in the Big Bash League and has batted well for his 45 in the previous match. He’s an aggressive batsmen and is capable of playing big knocks.
  • Marcus Stoinis - Marcus Stoinis played a solid hand of 78 of 37 in the last game and took Australia close to the New Zealand’s target of 219. He has carried on his form from the BBL, where he was the highest run scorer for Melbourne Stars. He too can be backed to come good.
  • Glenn Maxwell - Maxwell will be under pressure to deliver which might bring the best out of him. He can be devastating on his day.

AUS Team Form

Australia have been outplayed by New Zealand in the T20 series. Also the form of their two big players, Maxwell and Finch will be a cause of concerm

Australia Predicted Playing 11

New Zealand have a very strong side and almost every player has contributed in their wins. Australia on the other hand hasn’t been consistent. Their batting looks shaky and the form of Finch and Maxwell is a concern. New Zealand are favourites for us.

Final Verdict

New Zealand are favorites to win against Australia. Back New Zealand to beat Australia at 1.80

NZ vs AUS Dream11 Prediction

  • Wicket Keeper

    Josh Philippe at 8.5 is a good pick. He played well for his 45 in the last match and is coming back from some fine performances in the BBL where he was the leading run scorer.

  • Batsmen

    Kane Williamson at 10, Martin Guptill at 9.5, Marcus Stoinis at 9.0 and Devon Conway at 8.5 will be out batsmen. Williamson is one of the bets batsmen going around is in fine form. He stroked a 50 in the last match. Guptill too played a brutal knock of 97 in the last game. Devon Conway was in red hot form in the BBL and stroked a classy 99 in the first match while Stoinis almost got Australia home with a 37 ball 78 in the 2nd T20I.

  • All rounder

    Jimmy Neesham at 9.0, Mitchell Santner and Daniel Sams at 8.5 will add depth to our team. Neesham blasted a 16 ball 45 in the last match. He played well in the 1st T20 as well. As a bowler too, he’s done a decent hob. Santner picked up a 4 fer in the previous game. Daniel Sams also had a good all round game in the 2nd T20I where he played a destructing inning of 15 ball 41.

  • Bowlers

    Jhye Richardson at 9.0, Adam Zampa at 9.0, and Trent Boult at 8.5 will complete our team. Richardson was the leading wicket taker in the BBL while Zampa, with his spin will add a variety in the bowling attack. Boult, as we all know is a class bowler

  • Captain /Vice Captain

    Kane Williamson will be our skipper while Jimmy Neesham can be backed as his deputy

NZ vs AUS Dream11 Team Prediction

  • Batsmen:Devon Conway, Marcus Stoinis, Martin Guptill, Kane Williamson(C)

  • All Rounder:Jimmy Neesham(vc), Daniel Sams, Mitchell Santner
