NZ vs AUS Prediction, 11Wickets Fantasy Cricket Tips, Playing XI, Pitch Report & Injury Update – Australia tour of New Zealand, 3rd T20I

If you are looking for a budget pick from the bowlers, there is no better option than Ish Sodhi.

Match Details:

The 3rd of the 5-match T20I bilateral series between New Zealand and Australia will be played on 3rd March at Westpac Stadium, Wellington.

The match is scheduled to start at 7:00 PM local time and 11:30 AM IST and it will be streamed live on Fancode.

Preview:

Australia’s poor form is seemingly unending, as after a poor Test series against India, they have started te T20I series against New Zealand on a very bad note. The Kiwis have defeated the Kangaroos in both matches in the battle of Down Under.

Australia were simply blown away in their first game, while in their second match, they showed some resilience. That, however, wasn’t of any use ultimately, as Kane Williamson’s men had the last laugh. This game is a must-win for Australia, while for the Kiwis, this is a chance to seal the series with a game to spare.


NZ vs AUS Weather Report for 3rd T20I:

Wellington will host this match after the authorities decided it won’t be feasible to stage it at Auckland, where it was scheduled to happen. The temperature will be 18 °C tomorrow, with the chances of precipitation being very low.

Pitch Condition/Report:

The wicket will be perfect for the batsmen in the first innings. That being said, the bowlers will come into the game as the match progresses. Anything around 175 should be a good total here.

Average first innings score:

172 (Last 5 T20Is matches played on this venue)
