Our Tipsters Angle

The home side looks relatively inexperienced as premier players like Kane Williamson, Trent Boult, Mitchell Santner, and James Neesham have been rested after the conclusion of the ODI series against Bangladesh.

With the likes of Devon Conway, Tim Southee, and Martin Guptill in excellent form, the home side will be looking to deliver another pitch-perfect performance in this series opener.

Therefore, the prediction is for New Zealand to register a comfortable win in the first T20I.

Rookie batsman Devon Conway has surprised many with his brilliant batting performances with the bat for New Zealand. Recently, he has been the go-to man for New Zealand in the batting department in the T20 format.

There is no doubt that Leg-spinner Ish Sodhi has been a bankable performer for New Zealand in the T20 format. The 28-year old was instrumental in helping New Zealand win their previous T20I series against Australia.

Since February 2019, Ish Sodhi has done exceedingly well for the side in the 20-over format. In 22 matches played, Sodhi has claimed 26 wickets at an economy rate of 8.57, so we are backing Ish Sodhi to take two wickets or [email protected].
