Australia vs New Zealand 2nd ODI Preview – Betting Tips, Latest Odds, Team News and Predictions – 14/03/2020


Due to the ongoing threat of Coronavirus, this match has been cancelled, together with the rest of the ODI Series


Australia and New Zealand meet for the second time in two days at the SCG as their ODI series reaches a crucial point.

The teams went head-to-head at the same venue on Friday and this quick turnaround means there should be plenty of clues on offer when betting on this contest. Australia won the first clash by 71 runs as David Warner and Aaron Finch enjoyed a fine opening partnership.

World Cup finalists New Zealand did brilliantly to upset India on home soil recently but now face a considerable tougher test back in Australia. They suffered a disappointing Test series at the end of last year and fell short again in the first ODI and will now have to try and avoid an overall series defeat.

Australia will hope to have learned a few lessons from their ODI series defeat in South Africa and putting their rivals to the sword in Sydney will be another good step to putting that behind them.

Australia vs New Zealand 2nd ODI – Team News

With this clash taking place at the same ground and then there isn’t likely to be too many changes from either side.

The hosts are without fast bowler Rhye Richardson but have the same squad to select from that went to South Africa. The form of their openers, as well as a half-century from Manus Labuschagne in the first, means they are likely to stick to the same team.

New Zealand have Lockie Ferguson, Matt Henry and Trent Boult back in their squad. Seamer Kyle Jamieson will also be keen to continue his fine start to international cricket. Spinner Ish Sodhi had joy in the first game and he could play an important role again.

Australia vs New Zealand 2nd ODI – Betting Tips and Prediction

Here we will be highlighting some of the best bets on offer for the second game of this ODI series. We will have predictions, free cricket tips and the latest odds to help guide your betting decisions on the match.

This one looks likely to go the same way as the first as Australia look to continue their dominance on home soil. They fired with the bat in the first and can do it again. They will also be encouraged with how the wickets were shared out on the way to that series lead.

Zampa to strike with the ball

Adam Zampa took two wickets despite being a tad expensive in the first ODI and he can build on that here. New Zealand’s Ish Sodhi showed how the SCG can help spinners and this could be set up for Australian counterpart Zampa to shine.

He is priced at 4.50 (7/2) with bet365 to be Australia’s top wicket-taker and he should be considered at the prices.

Labuschagne too big to continue fine form

Marnus Labuschagne didn’t quite outshine the Australian openers in the first ODI but did well to hit a half-century in 52 balls. He was also a shining light from a difficult spell in South Africa. His price of 6.00 (5/1) with bet365 is too big and he’s worth a bet to be his team’s top run-scorer.

Best Bet: Marnus Labuschagne to top score for Australia at 6.00 (5/1) with bet365
