ICC T20 WorldCup 2021: Final – NZ vs AUS: Preview, Playing XI & Predictions14 Nov 2021 - 19:30 pm

NZ vs AUS Preview

The big day is here and New Zealand will take on Australia in the final of the T20 World Cup. The match will be played in Dubai. New Zealand suffer a big blow as Devon Conway got injured in the last match in a bizarre way and will not be available for finals. Tim Siefert is expected to replace him who has not batted even once in this world cup.

It is the two least expected teams that make it to the final by defeating the two favourites of this T20 World Cup in the semi-finals. Both the teams won the semi-finals by chasing the score down from a situation where it was tough for them to pull it off. Neither New Zealand nor Australia has ever won the T20 World Cup and as a result, this edition will have a new T20 World Cup winner. It is a repeat of 2015 50 over World cup Final where Australia won the match comfortably.

New Zealand

  • New Zealand has been one of the most consistent teams in the ICC tournaments in the past few years. They made it to the 2019 World Cup Final and lost in by barest if margins, won the ICC WTC 2021 and are now in the finals of the T20 World Cup. 3 ICC finals in 2 years.
  • New Zealand reached the final by defeating England in a thriller. They chased down 167 with 5 wickets remaining.
  • Daryl Mitchell and James Neesham were top performers with the bat. Daryl Mitchell was the top scorer for New Zealand with 72 off 47 balls while James Neesham played a match-winning knock of 27 from 11 balls to change the momentum in their favour.
  • While Tim Southee was the top performer with the ball as he took 1/24 in his 4 overs.

Australia

  • Australia makes it to the finals of an ICC tournament after 6 years. The last time when they made it to the finals of the ICC tournament they won the trophy. While this is the second time they reach the finals of a T20 World Cup.
  • Australia reached the finals by defeating Pakistan in a brilliant run chase. They chased down 177 in 19 overs with 5 wickets remaining.
  • There were 3 different star performers with the bat. It was David Warner in the beginning as he scored an important 49 off 30 balls and while in the end it was the sheer brilliance of Marcus Stoinis and Matthew Wade that took the game away from Pakistan. Stoinis scored 40 off 31 balls while Wade scored a match-winning 41 off just 17 balls to help Australia reach the finals.
  • Zampa was their most economical bowler as he took 1/22 in his 4 overs and the other top performer with the ball was Mitchel Starc as he took 2/38 in his 4 overs.

Match Prediction for NZ vs AUS

It is said that never count Australia out of the tournament and they proved it right. They have clicked together as a unit in the world cup. David Warner is back in a form that has been the most worrying thing for the opposition. It is the form of Mitchell Starc with the bowl and Glenn Maxwell with the bat which can be a little worrying before the big finals.

New Zealand has played some brilliant cricket as well. They have also won 4 of their last 5 matches and the only loss came against a strong Pakistan team in a close encounter. Their bowlers have looked extremely sharp and the batting department has fired at the right time as well. A lot will depend on the openers to put a good platform for them

We predict and bet on New Zealand to win this fixture and reach the finals.

England VS New Zealand

ICC T20 WorldCup 2021: 1st Semi Final – ENG vs NZ: Preview, Playing XI & Predictions10 Nov 2021 - 19:30 pm

ENG vs NZ Preview

England will take on New Zealand in the first semi-final of the T20 World Cup. The match will be played in Abu Dhabi. New Zealand will be keen on taking revenge for the finals of the 2019 World Cup which they lost in the super over.

New Zealand has done brilliantly in the last few years of the ICC tournaments, reaching the final in 50 over the world cup, winning WTC 2021 and now into the semi-finals of the T20 World Cup. They will be looking to reach their first-ever finals in the T20 World Cup.

England have been the most dominating team in white-ball cricket. They won the 2019 World Cup and are looking to win the T20 World Cup as well. They were agonizingly close in 2016 in the finals to lift the T20 world cup and they would want to better that memory by lifting the T20 World Cup this year.

It is going to be a mouth-watering Semi-Final to decide the finalists.

He now has a record of the most economical 4fer in T20Is and was also England’s top bowler in the opening fixture

He takes the bowl away from the right-hander and with New Zealand having a heavy batting lineup with right-handers he can be the key to the England bowling.

As a result, we predict and bet on Adil Rashid to be England’s top bowler in this fixture.

Match Prediction for ENG vs NZ

England is in brilliant form. They have won 4 of their last 5 matches and have looked absolutely dominant in the tournament. They have just lost 1 match in the tournament. Although they have a few concerns. One is form of Dawid Malan. Further, some unfortunate injuries have made it difficult for them. Their two key players Tymal Mills and Jason Roy have been ruled out of the tournament. This means they will have to go with a different opening combination for the first time in this tournament.

New Zealand has played some brilliant cricket as well. Thye have also won 4 of their last 5 matches and the only loss came against a strong Pakistan team in a close encounter. Their bowlers have looked extremely sharp but the batting department has not fired as they would have liked. New Zealand will have to rely more on their bowlers to win this fixture.

IND vs NAM Preview

Introduction

India will take on Namibia in match 43 of the T20 World Cup. The match is going to be played in Dubai. Both the teams are out of the T20 World Cup 2021 and are playing to finish the tournament on high.

India Out of the Tournament 

  • India started as a strong favourite to win this T20 World Cup and also won the 2 warm-up matches. But tables have turned since then.
  • In the last game, it was brilliant bowling from Ravindra Jadeja as he took 3/15 in his 4 overs and Mohammad Shami also took 3/15 in his 3 overs.
  • With the bat, an explosive opening partnership of 70 runs in 5 overs sealed the game for them.
  • India lost their opening two matches against Pakistan and New Zealand and even though they have bounced back in style by beating Afghanistan by 66 runs and Scotland by 8 wickets it was a little too late for them as they are out of the tournament.

Spirited Namibia

  • Namibia has won 1 out of 4 matches in the super 12. Their only win came against Scotland.
  •  They have played some good cricket but it has been in patches that have hurt them.
  • In the last match against New Zealand, they started well with the bowl but gave away more than 76 runs in the last 6 overs.
  • Skipper Gerhard Erasmus and Bernard Scholtz bowled well as they took 1/22 and 1/15 in their 4 and 3 overs respectively.

IND vs NAM

India has got an explosive opening pair. Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul are expected to open the innings once again. In the last 2 matches, they have scored more than 50 in the powerplay. Indian openers have struggled and lacked intent and confidence in the powerplay, but they bounced back in the last 2 matches scoring 53 and 82 in the powerplay. Further, both the openers are back in form as well. We think India will come out with attacking intent in this match.

We predict and bet on India to score above 53.5 in the powerplay.

Match Prediction for IND vs NAM

India is in decent form as per their standard as they have won 3 of their last 5 matches. There are a lot of questions being asked and India will look to finish the tournament on high. With Rahul Dravid appointed as the new coach and Virat Kohli’s last match as T20 skipper, there are some big changes expected in the Indian T20 side after the tournament.

Namibia has won just 2 of their last 5 matches. They have lost their last 2 matches against stronger opponents. If Namibia is to give India a run for their money they need to bring their best game ever in T20 Cricket. Their opening bowling has looked good and they will look to make most of it to end the tournament on high.

We predict and bet on India to win this fixture.

In this world cup in super 12, they have scored 6,3,7 and 6 runs in the first over. Although, they are facing a strong Indian bowling attack. Against Scotland from those 6 runs scored 4 came from leg byes. Thye have not looked very convincing even though they have scored some runs in the first over.

PAK vs SCO Preview

Pakistan will take on Scotland in Match number 41 of the T20 World Cup. The match will be played at Sharjah. It is a match that does not have anything in terms of qualification scenario. But it is 1 more chance for Scotland to play against the big nation and make the most of it. They will be determined to make something of this and give Pakistan a run for their money.

While for Pakistan it is all about maintaining the momentum going into the semi-final. They will be looking to beat Scotland comprehensively and stamp their authority.

Pakistan through to the Semi-Finals

  • Pakistan has won 4 in 4. They are through to the semi-finals and would be looking to keep the momentum going and stay unbeaten in the tournament.
  • They won their last match against Namibia by 45 runs.
  • Skipper Babar Azam and opener Mohammad Rizwan have been brilliant with the bat. They put up an unbeaten 113 runs opening partnership. Babar Azam scored 70 off 49 while Mohammad Rizwan scored 79 off 50 balls to help Pakistan post 189 in their 20 overs.
  • Imad Wasim was their most economical bowler as he took 1/13 in his 3 overs.

Scotland 

  • They have shown tremendous composure and effort to reach this stage but Pakistan would be a very difficult opponent to beat for Scotland.
  • Scotland was thrashed in the last match against a strong Indian side. Put in to bat first Scotland were bundled out for only 85 on the board.
  • George Munsey was their top scorer as he scored 24 off 16 and was probably the only Scottish batter who looked comfortable on the pitch.
  • Their batting has struggled in the Super 12 but they will be proud of their effort.

ICC T20 WorldCup 2021: Match 40 – NZ vs AFG: Preview, Playing XI & Predictions07 Nov 2021 - 15:30 pm

NZ vs AFG Preview

New Zealand will take on Afghanistan in match 40 of the T20 World Cup. The match is going to be played in Abu Dhabi. The good thing here is that since the match is in the afternoon, dew will not be the biggest concern for the teams and winning or losing the toss might not have a huge impact on the game.

It will be a cracker of a game as a lot will depend on this fixture in deciding who will go into the semi-final from this group. If New Zealand wins they are through to the semi-final and will knock India and Afghanistan out of this T20 World Cup. But if Afghanistan wins, both India and Afghanistan have a chance to make it to the playoff based on net run rate.

Along with Afghanistan fans, a billion Indian fans will be also cheering for them in this virtual knockout game.

A win guarantees a semi-final spot for New Zealand 

  • New Zealand won their last fixture comprehensively by 52 runs against Namibia.
  • Although once again they did not start well in the powerplay. We can say that till 15 overs of 1st  innings Namibia was in the game. It was the last 4 overs that help New Zealand have an edge as they scored 67 runs in the last 4.
  • It was a shaky start for New Zealand with the bat as they were 87-4 in the inside 14 overs. But it was Glenn Phillips and James Neesham score off 39(21) and 35(23) that help them post 163-4 in their 20 overs.
  • While Trent Boult and Tim Southee were the standout bowlers as they took 2 wickets each in their 4 overs.

A must-win for Afghanistan

  • Afghanistan lost the last match against India as they were beaten comprehensively by 66 runs.
  • They gave away 210 runs in the first 20 overs and from there, they were always behind in the game.
  • They did not start well as well as they lost both the openers inside the powerplay. In the end, some late hitting from their skipper Mohammad Nabi 35(32) and Karim Janat 42(22) help them post a respective total of 144 on the board while chasing 211.
  • It is a must-win game for them if they are to stay alive in this competition.

Match Prediction for NZ vs AFG

New Zealand is in good form.

  • They have won 3 of their last 5 matches.
  • Their bowling looks good but their batting might be a cause of concern if the key players do not fire at the right moment.

Injury Concern for Afghanistan

  • Afghanistan is in decent format s well. They have also won 3 of their last 5 matches but have failed to win against stronger teams.
  • Further, the injury to Mujeeb Ur Rahman has been a big concern for them as it is the spin duo of Rashid Khan and Mujeeb Ur Rahman that makes them the dangerous bowling attack and a match-winning team.
  • If Afghanistan is to have any chance to win this fixture, Mujeeb Ur Rahmann needs to be fit and back in the playing XI.

We predict and bet on New Zealand to win this fixture.

He was their top bowler against India and Scotland. He swings the bowl with the new bowl and also has got good variations to bowl in the death overs. Boult will trouble the top-order batsman with his pace and swing.

We predict and bet on him to take over 1.5 wickets in this fixture.

England VS South Africa

ICC T20 WorldCup 2021: Match 39 – ENG vs SA: Preview, Playing XI & Predictions06 Nov 2021 - 19:30 pm

ENG vs SA Preview

England will take on South Africa in match number 39 of the T20 World Cup. The match will be played in Sharjah. England is almost through to the semi-finals. They are on the top of the table. A win and a place are guaranteed in the semi-finals. If Australia loses against West Indies then England are through even if they lose this fixture. But if Australia win and England lose then the net run rate will come into the picture.

While for South Africa the destiny will be in their own hands. If Australia loses a win will be enough for them to go through to the semi-finals. But if Australia wins then they will have to win by a certain margin to be ahead of them on net run-rate to go through to the semi-finals.

It is going to be a mouth-watering Saturday to decide the semi-finalists from Group 1.

Dominating England

  • England won their last fixture against Sri Lanka by 26 runs in a competitive fixture.
  • England was batting first and they did not start well as they lost 3 wickets inside the powerplay. But it was the brilliance of Jos Buttler with the bat that help them post a match-winning total.
  • Buttler hit a magnificent 101 off 67 balls to hit the first century of this T20 World Cup. While Eoin Morgan also played a good hand with 40 from 36.
  • While with the bowl spinners were the standout bowlers as they too 5/68 in their 11 overs
  • Tymal Mills suffered an injury and is unfortunately out of the tournament.

ENG vs SA Risky Bet – ComeOn

Team Top Bowler – Adil Rashid (England) – 3.5*

ENG vs SA

 

Adil Rashid is currently ranked number 3 in the world in T20I’s.  He has taken 72 wickets at an average of 23.00 in T20I’s. He took 4 wickets and gave away just 2 runs in the opening match for England against West Indies. He now has a record of the most economical 4fer in T20Is and was also England’s top bowler in the opening fixture

He takes the bowl away from the right-hander and with South Africa having a heavy batting lineup with right-handers he can be the key to the England bowling. Further, the match is going to be played in Sharjah and it will assist spinners.

As a result, we predict and bet on Adil Rashid to be England’s top bowler in this fixture.

* If you win this risky bet – 1000 gives 3500.

Match Prediction for ENG vs SA

England is in brilliant form. They have won 5 of their last 5 matches and have looked absolutely dominant in the tournament. They are yet to lose a match in the tournament. The only concern they have is the form of skipper Dawid Malan.

South Africa are in great form as well. They have won 4 of their last 5 matches and 3 in a row. Their bowling attack has looked brilliant in all the matches but the batting unit has scored in patches. If they are to win against this strong England side they will have to click as a unit.

We predict and bet on South Africa to win this fixture.

Australia VS West Indies

ICC T20 WorldCup 2021: Match 38 – AUS vs WI: Preview, Playing XI & Predictions06 Nov 2021 - 15:30 pm

AUS vs WI Preview

Australia will take on West Indies in match number 38 in the T20 World Cup. The match will be played in Abu Dhabi. The good thing here is that since the match is in the afternoon, dew will not be the biggest concern for the teams and winning or losing the toss might not have a huge impact on the game. It is an important game for Australia as they need to win this to keep things in their own hand for a place in the semi-final.

Dominate Australia

  • Australia thrashed Bangladesh in their last match by 8 wickets.
  • They bowled Bangladesh out for just 73 runs. Adam Zampa was the pick of the bowlers as he took career-best figures of 5/19 in his 4 overs.
  • While Australia chased down the target in just 6.2 overs, with Aaron Finch scoring blistering 40 off 20 balls.
  • This meant they went above Sout Africa in the points table due to a better run rate.

West Indies is out of the T20 World Cup.

  • West Indies lost their last match against Sri Lanka and crashed out of the T2o World cup. They would like to finish the tournament on high.
  • They lost the game by 20 runs. Sri Lanka posted 189/3 in their 20 overs. While in response West Indies could only manage 169 runs in their 20 overs with Shimron Hetmyer scoring a brilliant 81 off 54 balls but it was not enough.
  • The big guns of West Indies like, Kieron Pollard, Chris Gayle, Dwayne Bravo and Andre Russell has not fired which has caused problems for them.
  • Further, Dwayne Bravo has announced retirement from international cricket and this will be his last match in West Indies colour. The early exit can also mean some more retirement to come from big names.

Match Prediction for AUS vs WI

Australia is in a good form in their recent T20 matches. They have won 3 of their last 5 matches and the 2 defeats have come against powerhouse England and India. They look like a balanced team with key players back in form apart from David Warner.

West Indies has underperformed in this tournament. They are in a bad form and have only won 1 of their last 5 matches. The only win came against Bangladesh in the last ball thriller. They have been far from convincing and it seems like they will have a tough end to the tournament

We predict and bet on Australia to win this fixture.
