ENG vs NZ Preview: 

  • Jos Buttler concluded the 2023 Men’s Hundred as the leading run-scorer, making him a favorable choice to place bets on as England’s top run-getter against New Zealand. When it comes to bowling, Luke Wood’s prowess as a potent strike-bowler in home conditions makes him our selection as England’s primary wicket-taker on the upcoming Wednesday.
  • Displaying an average of 45.70 in T20Is, Devon Conway, the southpaw wicketkeeper-batter, emerges as our pick for New Zealand’s highest run contributor against England. Lockie Ferguson’s acquisition of 4 wickets over the course of the last two warm-up matches positions him as our expected leader in wicket-taking for New Zealand in this T20I encounter.
  • Riding high on his exceptional form following the conclusion of the Men’s Hundred, we recommend wagering on Jos Buttler exceeding the threshold of 31.5 runs in this T20I fixture.
