Cricket Betting: India vs New Zealand 3rd Test Preview

October 7, 2016 by Posted in Cricket Tips

Kane WilliamsonIndia have already won the series with comprehensive victories in the first two Tests and will be aiming for a whitewash against New Zealand in the third and final Test match starting in Indore on October 8.

This match will be the first Test to be played at the Holkar Stadium and the pitch could play similar to the one in Kanpur. Indian batsmen have struggled to get a good start so far in the series but with Gautam Gambhir slated to open with Murali Vijay, that could change here. Virat Kohli looked to be getting back to form while runs from Wriddhiman Saha is a huge bonus for the hosts.

Their bowling too looks settled but injury to Bhuvanesh Kumar could mean a recall to Umesh Yadav. Ravichandran Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja are a deadly duo on these pitches and the Kiwis should continue to be troubled.
There’s hope in the Kiwi camp that captain Kane Williamson has recovered enough to play in this match. If it happens, it’s good news for a team that has struggled to put runs on the board. How long will Marin Guptill continue to remain in the side without runs is a huge question.

Mitchell Santner is a surprise performer so far, proving to be difficult to get away with his precise darts. Trent Boult enjoyed the surface and swing at Kolkata but Indore could prove to be more docile.

Cheteshwar Pujara has been in impressive form this series without scoring a big hundred. He could again be the hosts’ best batsman – odds of $3.50 with William Hill. For the visitors, it could be Tom Latham who may end up as their best batter – odds of $3.50 at William Hill. With the ball, Santner looks an ideal punt to end up being the visitors’ best bowler at odds of $3.00 with William Hill.

The expected return of Kane Williamson will definitely boost the Kiwis but they still have to bat considerably better than what they did so far, to give a fight to the Indians. Otherwise, it looks like set for a whitewash and there’s little value betting into that market.


Always gamble responsibly.
