New Zealand vs Australia 4th T20 Prediction & Betting Tips
Australia bounced back in the series with a magnificent win the last game. But can they back their performance with another decent effort ? Read as we preview the fourth T20I between New Zealand and Australia. The match will be played at the Westpac stadium and is set to get underway at 7:00 PM local time.
Australia will be pleased with their performance in the last game where they outplayed the hosts in every department. Finch and Maxwell, their two best batsmen got runs. The bowlers were also on the money and didn’t allowed New Zealand a sniff. This is what they are capable of but the only issue is their consistency. Can they back their performance with another decent effort? If they do, we’ll be in for another cracker of a game.
New Zealand won’t be too concerned about one loss. They have been outstanding in the series with all their players in top form. Conway, Williamson and Neesham were coming off some fine performances in the Super Smash but the form of Martin Gultill was a worry. However, with two good knocks, he’s back in form. The bowlers have been expensive in the last two games and they’d like to get better with their line and lengths. Overall, it’s all set up for a enthralling contest but we think, New Zealand is a better team and will come back hard at Australia, who’s had issues with their consistency of late

NZ Team News
New Zealand is not a team that likes too much chopping and changes. We expect them to play the same XI. However, if they want to make any change, they can bring in Hamish Bennett who had a fabulous Super Smash. Santner has been ruled out of the series due to illness.
NZ Key Players
Martin Guptill - Guptilll now has two good knocks . He backed up his 97 with a quick fire 43. When on song, he can be brutal. We expect him to continue his good run in the next match as well
Devon Conway - Conway is in prime form. He was the second highest scorer in the Super Smash and stroked a brilliant 99 in the first T20. In the last match, he looked good with a solid 38. He can be backed to perform well in the next match
Ish Sodhi - Spinner might get some turn on this wicket thus Ish Sodhi become a valuable asset for New Zealand. He picked up 2 wickets in the last match and bowled well.

Australia played well in the last match and there is no reason for them to change the winning combination.
AUS Key Players
Josh Philippe - Josh Philippe has been very consistent. He’s played some god knocks but hasn’t got a big one. But watching him bat, we feel that a big inning is just around the corner.
Marcus Stoinis - Marcus Stoinis played a solid hand of 78 of 37 in the second T20I. He didn’t got his opportunity in the previous match but is a key batsmen in this Australian batting. He too is expected to play well.
Glenn Maxwell - Maxwell returned to form with a brutal 70 off 31. With the monkey of his shoulder, he can be very dangerous. He’ll be very handy the ball as well,.

Josh Philippe at 8.5 is a good pick. He’s been very consistent in the series and have got decent scores in almost every game.
Kane Williamson at 10, Martin Guptill at 9.5, Marcus Stoinis at 9.0 and Devon Conway at 9.0 will be out batsmen. Williamson is one of the best batsmen of the modern era and has played well in the series. He stroked a 50 in the 2nd T20I. Guptill thas two back to back good innings. He backed up his 97 with a quick fire 43. Devon Conway stroked a 99 in the first match and looked good in his knock of 38 in the previous game.
Jimmy Neesham at 9.0, Glenn Maxwell at 9.5 and Ashton Agar at 8.5 will add depth to our team. Neesham have played some impactful innings in the series while Maxwell was his destructive best and blasted 70 of 31 in the last match. Agar picked up 6 wickets in the last match.
Adam Zampa at 9.0, Ish Sodhi at 8.5 and Trent Boult at 8.5 will complete our team. Zampa and Sodhi will enjoy bowling on this wicket that is expected to offer some spin to the slower bowlers while Boult is the lead New Zealand pacer and has bowled well in the series.

New Zealand vs Australia Betting Odds
New Zealand have played some very good cricket in this series and will start as favourites
Who will win New Zealand vs Australia?
Despite Australia’s performance in the previous match, New Zealand will start as favourites. They have been outstanding of late and one off day won’t hurt them much. They are expected to come back stronger.
Guptill, Williamson and Neesham will be the three batsmen we’ll back from New Zealand. Guptill has two good knocks while Williamson is one of the best batsmen going around. Neesham can be very dangerous in the final overs. He has played few good innings in the series.
For Australia, Josh Philippe, Marcus Stoinis and Glenn Maxwell will be the top batsmen. Stoinis stroked a brutal 78 in the second T20I while Maxwell decimated the Kiwi bowlers with a scintillating 70. Philippe has been the most consistent among the Aussies
Boult, Southee and Ish Sodhi are the three top bowlers from New Zealand. Boult is their lead pacer while Southee is a very experienced bowler in this format of the game. The wicket might support the spinners which brings Sodhi into play as well.
We’ll back Ashton Agar, Adam Zampa and Riley Meredith from Australia. Spinners got something out of the wicket in the previous match thus Agar and Zampa will be very handy while Meredith made a fantastic debut and picked up 2 wickets in the last match.
New Zealand were outplayed in the last match but that shouldn’t concern them much. They have a very good team and all of their players are in fine form. Australia on the other hand have been very inconsistent of late. We’d stick with New Zealand as the favourites.
New Zealand are favorites to win against Australia. Back New Zealand to beat Australia at 1.83
