Tip Summary

  • India are having a significant lead of 1-0 in the three-match series after winning the second T20 International by 65 runs. 
  • New Zealand batters need to come up with a better performance on Tuesday to ensure a victory for their team.
  • The last time India toured New Zealand for a T20I series, they scored a whirlwind victory by 5-0. 

India will have their eyes set on another series victory in the shortest format of the game when they will battle it out against New Zealand in the final T20 International. The Men in Blue are leading by 1-0. No play was possible between the two sides in the opening game of the three-match series because of persistent rainfall at McLean Park in Napier. 

Meanwhile, It was the Indian team who displayed a brilliant brand of cricket in the second T20 International. Playing at the Bay Oval under the leadership of a young Hardik Pandya, India cruised to a stunning victory by 65 runs. Suryakumar Yadav was the lone warrior for the team with the bat in the first innings. His terrific century propelled the visitors to a mammoth score of 191 runs.

In the second innings, Indian bowlers carried the momentum forward as they gave no chances to the Blackcaps to make a comeback. Despite good efforts by skipper Kane Williamson, the hosts scored only 126 runs. The Kiwis need to re-look at their strategies with the bat in order to avoid a series loss. The team will be hoping for more contributions from the opening duo of Finn Allen and Devon Conway.

Meanwhile, speaking of India, they will be confident of sealing the series. Undoubtedly, Hardik Pandya & Men will walk as favorites in the Tuesday match.

  • Best Odds: 7.5 @ 1xBet

Over the past few months, Suryakumar Yadav has established himself as the backbone of India’s batting line-up in the shortest format of the game. The middle-order batter has hardly experienced any dull day this year with the bat as he has scored a plethora of runs for the Indian team irrespective of the opposition and the playing conditions. Following his carnage in the T20 World Cup 2022, Suryakumar smacked the New Zealand bowlers over the park at the Bay Oval in Mount Maunganui. When all the other batters failed to perform, the Mumbai Indians Stalwart came up with an eye-pleasing knock of 111 runs off 51 balls. He hammered as many as 11 boundaries and seven sixes to take India to an above-average score of 191 runs. Thus, Suryakumar Yadav is the safest bet for the New Zealand vs India encounter.

Top New Zealand batter: Kane Williamson

Kane Williamson was under fire after a poor performance in the T20 World Cup. However, the batter exhibited his importance in the team once again during the second T20I against India. When no Kiwi player could score more than 25 runs, the captain played an emphatic knock of 61 runs off 52 balls. Though he could not take the team to victory, his brilliant performance gave New Zealand a real chance to fight. We expect Williamson to continue his good performance on Tuesday as well to again become the top-scorer for the Blackcaps.

Top wicket-taker of the match: Yuzvendra Chahal

  • Best Odds: 4.5 @ Dafabet

Odds are on Yuzvendra Chahal’s side to be the top wicket-taker in the third T20 International. The leg spinner flaunted his form in the last match by picking the wickets of Glenn Phillips and James Neesham. He gave only 26 runs in his four overs to record an economy rate of 6.5. Moreover, the condition at McLean Park will suit Chahal’s game. The pitch gets slower as the match goes on, thus providing an extra edge to the spinners.
