England vs New Zealand Prediction

The opening game of the series saw New Zealand register a comfortable victory by eight wickets. England are looking at these games as a way of finding the right combination for the World Cup but despite that, they have good resources to win this game.

Our Prediction: England to win this match at 1/2 (1.50).

Top Run-scorer

Daryl Mitchell has done well against England in all formats and is coming off a terrific century in the first ODI. Back him to be New Zealand’s top batter at 3/1 (4.00). Ben Stokes scored a solid fifty on Friday on his return to ODI cricket. Bet on Stokes to be the top batter for England at 9/2 (5.50).

Our Prediction: Daryl Mitchell to be New Zealand’s top run-scorer at 3/1 (4.00).

Top Wicket-taker

Mark Wood didn’t play the first game but should feature in this game. He has the pace and skill set to trouble the batters. Bet on Wood to be England’s top bowler at 7/2 (4.50). Matt Henry has 127 wickets from 71 ODI innings and should do well here. Back him to be New Zealand’s best bowler at 9/4 (3.25).

Our Prediction: Mark Wood to be England’s top wicket-taker at 7/2 (4.50).

Man of the Match

Jos Buttler scored a brilliant 72 off 68 in the opening game of the series. He has the ability to change the game in a short time and has a stellar record in ODI cricket. Take a punt on him to be the player of the match at 10/1 (11.00).

Our Prediction: Jos Buttler to be the Man of the Match at 10/1 (11.00) odds.

England vs New Zealand Preview

England would be desperate to bounce back in the series following an eight-wicket defeat in the first game. Take a look at two sides ahead of the second ODI.


England bowlers could not make any impact in the first game as the visitors chased down the target with ease. The batting unit, led by Jos Buttler’s 72 had done well to post 291 runs on the board.

The hosts were without Jason Roy and Jonny Bairstow in the first game. If the duo returns, Harry Brook could be moved down the order. Expect a few changes in the bowling unit as well.

Squad: Jonny Bairstow, Jason Roy, Joe Root, Ben Stokes, Harry Brook, Jos Buttler (c/wk), Liam Livingstone, Chris Woakes, Mark Wood, Rashid Khan, Reece Topley

New Zealand

Rachin Ravindra starred for the visitors, picking 3 for 48 in his spell. Devon Conway then held the innings together with his unbeaten 111 while Daryl Mitchell blasted 118 not-out in 91 deliveries.

New Zealand could make a couple of changes for this game with Trent Boult and Mitchell Santner likely coming in.

Squad: Devon Conway, Will Young, Henry Nicholls, Daryl Mitchell, Tom Latham (c/wk), Glenn Phillips, Mitchell Santner, Tim Southee (c), Matt Henry, Trent Boult, Lockie Ferguson
