New Zealand v Australia 5th T20I – Team News

  • Kane Williamson – The Black Caps’ skipper has enjoyed a superb start to the year but has not reached double figures in the last two T20Is. He will be keen to bounce back to form in this decider.
  • Ish Sodhi – The New Zealand spinner took three wickets in the last game and will be important once more as conditions look likely to suit.
  • Aaron Finch – The Aussie opener and captain underlined his return to form with a well-measured 79 in the last contest. That followed the 69 he made in the 3rd T20I.
  • Kane Richardson – The Australia bowler took three wickets in the last game and could have another big impact.
  • Ashton Agar – The left-arm spinner added two more wickets in the 4th  T20I after the six he took in the 3rd. Both he and Adam Zampa could hold the key to Australia completing a remarkable comeback success.

New Zealand v Australia 5th T20I – Betting Tips and Prediction

Australia have dominated since the series arrived in Wellington.

New Zealand enjoyed Dunedin but it is Wellington that seems to be suiting the Aussies more.

Given the fact they have won the last two and have a better spin attack, it’s hard to look past them to make it three wins on the spin to secure the outright series victory.

Adam Zampa, Ashton Agar and Kane Richardson are set to be a handful again. With skipper Aaron Finch back in form and Josh Philippe continuing his rise, the Aussies look the pick in this one.

Their price of 1.81 with 1xBet looks a good price after the last two showings.

Back Richardson to be Rewarded

While Adam Zampa and Ashton Agar continue to cause problems for the Black Caps, there could be some value in siding with Kane Richardson in the top Australia bowler market.

His three wickets in the last game will give him a real lift ahead of this. This accuracy and variation could bring wickets, especially if the visiting spinners have built pressure.

Richardson’s price of 4.5 with bet365 looks a good opportunity.

Maxwell For Man of the Match

Glenn Maxwell has made some vital contributions this series, including hitting 70 runs in the 3rd T20I and bagging two wickets in the 4th.

The all-rounder looks ready to put both disciplines together and has to be considered in the man of the match market.

He can be backed at 9.0 with bet365 to be awarded that honour. It’s a longshot bet but one that looks worth a wager given his recent form.
