New Zealand have had mixed results with the bat in the first two games, but that was mostly down to the nature of the wicket. On flatter decks, their batting can be relied upon. New Zealand have odds of 2.79 to win this match.

India will likely bring in the exciting Prithvi Shaw for the decider with Jitesh Sharma another possible addition for Ishan Kishan in the middle-order. Their bowling could also see a change with Umran Malik returning for Yuzvendra Chahal on the flatter wicket.
Our pick: India’s top-order remains class and can challenge New Zealand. Back India at 1.43 to win the match!

Keep an eye on…
Finn Allen is a phenomenal ball striker and can change the course of the game in the Powerplay. Expect him to go hard on the Indian bowlers from the word go.
Suryakumar Yadav showed why he is one of the finest T20 batters in the planet in the last game, marshalling India through a tricky run chase. Bank on him to do more of that on flatter wickets.
Top tip: Suryakumar Yadav is in great form and should enjoy the batting wicket here. Back Suryakumar at 3.95 to be India’s top batter!
