New Zealand enjoy playing in the South island of their beautiful country. Cricket Betting Tips Their five wicket victory in the fourth ODI against England in Dunedin continued their unbeaten one-day record at that ground and they will also be looking to remain undefeated at Hagley Oval in Christchurch on Saturday (March 10) when the two sides meet there in the series decider.
This ODI series has shown the format in its very best light. Cricket Betting Tips Free The pitches have often given something for the bowlers which has created more nuanced and interesting cricket as a result and the series has ebbed and flowed as two fine teams have slugged it out. Although T20 cricket may be the coming force, when the 50-over format is as compelling as it has been in this series, it clearly still has a future.
It is fitting then that the two teams are locked at 2-2 going into the final match, setting up a knock-out type scenario which will be good preparation for next year's World Cup.
New Zealand's two victories in Hamilton and then in Dunedin have been based in large part on brilliant individual performances from Ross Taylor who may be missing in Christchurch with injury whereas England's wins in Wellington and Mount Maunganui were achieved thanks to a number of players contributing. Cricket Match Betting Tips Eoin Morgan's men still look the more rounded team, with more options with the ball and a deeper batting order.
With more players in decent form too, England are perhaps favourites to take the series and will be in the box seat if Taylor isn't fit, something which would put even more pressure on Kane Williamson. One area where England will be looking to improve is on their ability to take wickets in the middle overs which they were unable to do in both Hamilton and Dunedin.
But New Zealand teams are generally resourceful and this side has won two games in the series despite a number of important players such as batsman Martin Guptill and bowlers Tim Southee and Mitchell Santner not quite hitting their straps. Cricket Tips Free The home side could have won in Wellington too had one of the middle order batsmen managed to stay with Williamson - who made a fine hundred - for just a few overs.
History is on New Zealand's side. Cricket Tips They have played eight times at Hagley Oval since their first match there in 2015, winning them all. Cbtf Cricket Prior to that first game at the venue against Sri Lanka, Lancaster Park had hosted international cricket in Chirstchurch but it was destroyed during the horrendous 2011 earthquake which cost 185 lives. Christchurch is a sporting city which is still rebuilding itself after that horrible day but it is a fitting venue for such a mouth-watering finale.
Where: Hagley Oval, Christchurch
When: Saturday March 10, 2018. 11:00am local time
What to expect: Hagley Oval is renowned for offering assistance to the faster men and when New Zealand played West Indies in two ODIs at the ground in December, on both occasions there was plenty of swing and seam on offer. Cricket Betting Tips The forecast for Saturday's match is set fair with some cloud lingering around in the morning which could mean both sides will want to chase if they win the toss.
