New Zealand vs India T20 Game 1 betting preview

New Zealand will host India at Eden Park this Friday night in the first of five T20 matches between the teams.

You would expect India’s population of 1.3 billion to create a team good enough to beat any nation, but New Zealand has created a power XI from its 4.7 million.


Some of the world’s best cricketers will be on display in Auckland, including superstar skippers Kane Williamson and Virat Kohli.

The Black Caps are rated as underdogs in India’s tour of New Zealand, but a win in the opening game would give the home side a perfect platform from which to spring an upset.

New Zealand vs India T20 Game 1 top batsman tips

Colin Munro top New Zealand runscorer @ +333 at Bovada
With scores of 44 and 68 in his two most recent T20 games in Auckland, Colin Munro comes into Friday’s clash with solid form over track and distance. Munro is a very strong opening batsmen that uses his power to hit all over the ground. The Indian bowlers will want to topple the opener before he establishes himself.

Rohit Sharma top India runscorer @ +275 at Bovada
The form that Rohit Sharma acquired in the recent ODI series against Australia will carry over to New Zealand. With teammates Virat Kohli and KL Rahul by his side, Sharma is in good company, but we expect the sweet-striking opener to be the best of India’s star bats in Auckland.

New Zealand vs India T20 Game 1 best bowler betting

Scott Kuggeleijn New Zealand most wickets @ +350 at Bovada
Although Scott Kuggeleijn has not been a wicket-taking option on the international stage in the past, his good form and strong body of work will see him start at the second-shortest odds for New Zealand’s top wicket-taker market. A combination of surprise and adrenaline will bring Kuggeleijn some wickets in this match, as the Indians will see him as a target to be hit.

Jasprit Bumrah India most wickets @ +240 at Bovada
Jasprit Bumrah is one of the most enjoyable bowlers to watch, as his stiff arm and surprising pace always seem to bewilder opposition batsmen. T20 is a format where Bumrah has the green light to do whatever he feels, and his bouncers combined with yorkers are hard to predict, making him the obvious favourite to take the most wickets for India.

New Zealand vs India T20 Game 1 betting predictions

India to win @ -175.44 at Bovada
India has started 2020 in very good fashion, beating the Australians in the final two ODI matches of their three-game series. The Black Caps are missing some of their most trusted bowlers, including the injured Trent Boult, so the tourists should put plenty of balls over the short boundaries at Eden Park.
