England vs New Zealand Tips


England are clear favourites so I’m searching for value in the run-scoring markets. Glenn Phillips was in superb form in the recent T20I series against England while Jonny Bairstow scored 73 runs in the last match.

  • England have won 3 of their last 5 ODIs against New Zealand.
  • England’s Jonny Bairstow scored 73 runs in the last T20I against New Zealand.
  • New Zealand won their last 2 T20I matches against England.
  • New Zealand’s Glenn Phillips scored 41, 69 & 42 runs in the T20I series against England.

Head to Head


England have won three of their last five ODIs against New Zealand. They last met in the 2019 Cricket World Cup final, a match that was tied after 100 overs, then again after the Super Over. England won the World Cup on boundary count.

England Form


England are the ODI world champions and while their form in the format has fluctuated over the last four years, at full strength they are still in the top couple of teams in the world.

In the recent T20I series against the Black Caps, England dominated the first two matches, taking a 2-0 lead. Slightly concerning for them is how they let New Zealand back into it the level the series at 2-2.

England Team News


England are very close to full strength for this series although they will certainly rotate throughout the series. Ben Stokes makes his ODI return after retiring a couple of years back. Harry Brook is also back in the squad.

New Zealand Form


New Zealand will be confident after their superb comeback in the T20I series against England. They were 2-0 down but bounced back to win the final two games to draw level.

While it isn’t all the same players in the ODI series, they will still draw confidence from the young team that managed that feat. The Black Caps reached the 2019 ODI World Cup final and are strong enough to compete again this year.

This series will be about them finding form and testing some combinations.

New Zealand Team News


Tom Latham captains the side in the absence of Kane Williamson. There is a return to the squad for Trent Boult.

Verdict

I am backing Jonny Bairstow to score 50+ and top score for England.

For the Black Caps I'm looking at Glenn Phillips who was superb in the T20I series against England.
