Pitch Report and Weather Conditions
Edgbaston has short boundaries but despite that, this is one of the tougher batting venues in England. Spinners and new ball bowlers find even more assistance in the second innings. The average first innings score at the venue reads 163.
The weather in Birmingham could be partly cloudy on Sunday evening but there’s no threat of rain. The temperature should hover between 12-16 degrees.
England vs New Zealand Prediction
England smashed New Zealand by six wickets in the opening game and by 95 runs in the second. The hosts just have a significantly stronger batting unit and bowlers have done their job. As for the head to head record, England lead the scoreline with 16 wins out of 25 T20Is.
Our Prediction: England to win this match at 2/5 (1.40).
Harry Brook has been in incredible form with the bat, scoring runs across formats. He’s coming off a fifty and you can bet on him to be the top batter for England at 13/4 (4.25). Glenn Phillips has scored 32*, 65*, 41 and 22 in his last four T20s. Take a punt on him to be New Zealand’s top batter at 7/2 (4.50).
Our Prediction: Harry Brook to be England’s top run-scorer at 13/4 (4.25).
Gus Atkinson was exceptional on his debut, picking 4 for 20. Back him to be the top bowler for England in this game as well at 11/4 (3.75). Mitchell Santner is one of the best T20 spinners and should do well on this pitch. Bet on him to be New Zealand’s best bowler at 9/2 (5.50).
Our Prediction: Gus Atkinson to be England’s top wicket-taker at 11/4 (3.75).

The Black Caps are likely to make a few changes for this game. Lockie Ferguson could be dropped while Daryl Mitchell might bat at three.
Squad: Finn Allen, Devon Conway (wk), Tim Seifert, Mark Chapman, Daryl Mitchell, Glenn Phillips, Mitchell Santner, Adam Milne, Tim Southee (c), Matt Henry, Ish Sodhi
