Pick Latham for Top New Zealand Batsman
Tom Latham spoke a lot about New Zealand’s ability to adapt to batting in sub-continental conditions after the recent tour of Bangladesh.
He was one of their better batsmen on that tour and hit two half-centuries in Dhaka. He can take that form into this series.
Latham is a good price at 3.0 with 1xBet to bet the top New Zealand batsman in this match. Those are relatively good odds when compared to competitors.
Bet on Ali as Top Pakistan Bowler
Hasan Ali has been among Paksitan’s best fast bowlers for an extended period now. There was a time he wa averaging more than two wickets per ODI. He has overcome injury and is back to his best.
Ali will fire up for this series, knowing that the success he has here could have an impact on his T20 World Cup campaign as well.
He knows these conditions quite well. Bet on Ali to be Pakistan’s top bowler in this match at 4.3 with bet365.
Go for de Grandhomme as Player of the Match
Colin de Grandhomme’s form has fallen and he might not be in this squad if all New Zealand’s first-choice players were available.
However, he is still a solid all-rounder and his role with the ball could be particularly suited to these conditions, in which variations from the seamers is required.
De Grandhomme bashes the ball about with the bat, too. It’s a longer-odds option, but 22Bet’s price of 15.0 for de Grandhomme to be the player of the match is a decent option.
