Tom Latham has scored two ODI centuries in Christchurch and the keeper-batter is our tip for New Zealand’s highest run scorer against India. Lockie Ferguson only bowled 2.5 overs before the game was ended in Hamilton and he will be fresh for this ODI. He is well worth backing as New Zealand’s top wicket taker in this match.
Shubman Gill averages 61.28 from 14 innings in this format and the opener is our pick for India’s highest run scorer in this game. With the ball, pace bowlers often succeed at this venue and Umran Malik is a strong choice for India’s top wicket taker against New Zealand.
India’s opening batters are both in strong form and we recommend backing them to have the ‘Highest Opening Partnership’.

New Zealand Team News & Playing 11
NZ Team News
After being an unused squad member throughout the T20 World Cup and the recent IT20 series against India, all-rounder Michael Bracewell finally found his way back into the team ahead of the second ODI. It would be a big surprise if New Zealand chose a different XI for this final match of the series.
NZ Key Players
Tom Latham - The 30 year old left-handed batter has played in over 200 internationals. He has hit 25 ODI scores over 50 in his career and has a particularly strong record at this venue.
Kane Williamson - The skipper is one of the most consistent batters in the world across all formats. He has made more than 40 runs in each of his last five international innings.
Lockie Ferguson - The pace bowler has his fitness carefully monitored but has gradually increased his workload over this year. He will enjoy bowling on this pitch.
NZ Team Form
New Zealand spent a large part of this year playing ODIs against the likes of Scotland, Ireland and Netherlands. However, they have played stronger teams of late and have won only one of their last five
There were two changes for India ahead of the second ODI with Deepak Chahar and Deepak Hooda coming into the side in place of Shardul Thakur and Sanju Samson. With only 12.5 overs possible on Sunday, we expect to see the same team selected for this game.
IND Key Players
Shubman Gill - The right-hander hit 45 not out from 42 balls before the rain arrived in the last match. He has had an excellent 2022 and will enjoy the pace in the wicket in Christchurch.
Shreyas Iyer - With the likes of Kohli, Sharma and Rahul out of the team, this game represents another opportunity for Iyer to dominate the batting for India.
Umran Malik - The leading wicket takers in ODIs at this venue are all pace bowlers. Malik has shown that he can disturb top class batters and he will be looking forward to performing in this fixture.
IND Team Form
India have won two of their last five ODIs but overall have had plenty of success in this format during this year.
The local conditions in New Zealand are very different compared to India and with humidity likely to be high, we expect plenty of swing for the quick bowlers. New Zealand will be best placed to take advantage of this.
NZ vs IND Top Team Batsmen
We are backing Kane Williamson, Devon Conway and Tom Latham with the bat for New Zealand. Williamson has been in excellent form and the bookies fancy him to deliver for his team in this match. Conway has a top score of 126 in this format.
Shikhar Dhawan, Shreyas Iyer and Shubman Gill are our batting selections for India. The bookies are backing captain Dhawan to hit the highest score and he has an excellent record in ODIs. Gill has matured throughout 2022 and he is a fine player across all international formats.
NZ vs IND Top Team Bowlers
Lockie Ferguson, Tim Southee and Matt Henry are our bowling recommendations for New Zealand. Ferguson is the bookmakers’ choice for New Zealand’s top bowler and he has taken 80 ODI wickets. Henry got the big wicket of Shikhar Dhawan before the rain ended the second ODI of the series.
Our bowling picks are Umran Malik, Arshdeep Singh and Deepal Chahar for India. The pace and accuracy of Malik have caught the eye of the bookmakers who have him as the top wicket taker. Arshdeep Singh will get plenty of swing at this venue, particularly with the forecast for cloudy and humid conditions.
New Zealand vs India Prediction
This ODI will bring an end to the India tour of New Zealand which has included IT20s, ODIs and plenty of rain. Both teams have pace bowlers who will be able to take advantage of cloudy conditions and the batting line-ups on both teams are very strong. New Zealand have an excellent record at this venue and we are predicting another victory for them.
New Zealand are favorites to beat India at odds of 1.66
