Cricket – NZ v AUZ – Tips and Analysis

Cricket ODI
New Zealand Vs Australia
Chappell – Hadlee Trophy, Game 3
Seddon Park, Hamilton
9am (AEDST), 5 February 2017

With only 1 market available we are taking this time to do a recap of the first game and setting up ourselves to give you tips closer to the game and giving you knowledge that will hopefully help you make sound decisions for this match.

Let’s have a recap of game 1 and look into game 3.

With New Zealand (NZ) taking the first game by 6 runs it was looking to be a cracking game 2, however Mother Nature denied this. Napier hadn’t seen a drop of rain in 11 weeks, but that changed in a massive way, resulting in the ground being unable to drain probably and play abandoned.

GAME 1

New Zealand set a very good total of 286, with Broom (73 off 75), Guptill (61 off 73) and Nessham (48 from 45) being the the stand out with the bat. They had five batsman score under 10 runs and the remaining three batsman scored 24 (K.Williamson) and 16 each in Taylor and no.11 Boult.
The Australian bowlers managed to remove Latham (7) in the 3rd over, via Starc, (1-13) but then the NZ batsman showed some fight, before Williamson was removed by Stoinis, a precursor to what a match he would have. Taylor was bowled by Head, having NZ 3-128 in the 23rd over. However a mini collapse courtesy of Stoinis magnificent spell saw Guptill and Munro depart with the Host nation on 5-134 off 25.1 overs. This however linked up Broom and Neesham to pile on the runs and rejuvenate the NZ innings. Neesham fell short by 2 runs of his half century, falling to Mr consistent Hazlewood, but a large amount of damage was done with NZ now 6-210 in the 38th over. The Australian bowlers clawed back and managed to restrict the total to 286, at one stage this total was looking 315+ with some good bowling at the back end of the innings only allowing 59 runs off the last 12 overs. Stoinis led the charge with 3 wickets, Cummins took 2 and Starc, Hazlewood, Head and Faulkner all taking one a piece.

In reply the Australian (AUS) top order were terrible, the Top 6 batsman scored 56 runs between them. Finch (4) and Head (5) where removed by Boult on the same over, sending AUS to 2-10 off 3.5 overs. Handscomb didn’t get a start and was soon dismissed as he left with out troubling the score board officials with 7 runs, digging the hole even deeper for AUS, now 3-18. S. Marsh was starting to look good when Santer and Latham combined to remove him on 16 runs, followed closely by Maxwell (20 runs) with Latham being involved again with a catch. Australia where in all sorts now, 5-54 from 13 overs, the run rate was on a downward spiral as Heazlett and Stoinis tried to rebuild the innings. However, Heazlett (4) was Ferguson’s second wicket and Latham took another catch and now NZ were turning the screws hard on a flounder AUS team.
What was to occur next is a child hood dream, your team is on the ropes and it’s up to you to get them out of the hole. Stoinis would have dreamt this and boy did he deliver on this day. Faulkner and Cummins played the support role whilst Stoinis went to work, smashing a ridiculous 11 sixes, 9 fours in his unbeaten 146 runs off 117 balls. However with Faulkner (25) and Cummins (36) unable to bat through with him, Australia fell short just 6 runs with still 3 overs left, after Williamson executed a runout on Hazlewood. For NZ, Santner was the top wicket taker with 3, Boult and Ferguson took 2, leaving Southee and Munro with one wicket each.

Game 3 looks intriguing with I. Sodhi looking to get his chance to improve on his ODI career, if the pitch looks like turning. You would have seen him in the BBL, bamboozling batsman and taking an impressive 6-11 against the struggling Adelaide Strikers. Another positive for NZ is Guptill may return, his 1st game of 61 runs was an integral part to building their innings, but we won’t know more until closer to game day.
Australia has suffered a blow with Wade being sent home due to a back injury, with Handscomb being handed the gloves on a more permanent basis now. Australia may use Zampa to use his ability to spin the ball, however closer to the match we will find out.

Historically the record for NZ at this ground is ok. Having played (since 2007) 13 games they have won 7, winning 4 (2 vs India, 1 Vs Bangladesh and 1 vs Aus) from their last five appearances at Hamilton.
Verse Australia the results are dated to 2007:
NZ Won by 55 runs (08/02/16)
AUS won by 6 wickets (09/03/10)
NZ Won by a wicket (20/02/07)

Interestingly the Major book makers have NZ $2.05 – $2.10 to win the match with AUS varied between $1.73 – $1.75. A bit confusing as if the heroics of Stoinis, 146*, 3 wickets, Australia would have been bundled out for well under 200 even 150. If it’s a spinning pitch, I. Sodhi could stamp his authority on this match and cause havoc here. With NZ needing a win to secure the Chappell – Hadlee Trophy, these odds are looking very tempting indeed.
Australia will need their top 5 batsman to stand up and its possible that the Book makers are wagering on at least 2-3 off them turning out a big score, as they won’t expect Stoinis to go that large again by himself.

We will revisit this game again closer to the event and update as we know more.

BIG BASH – SCORCHERS v STARS – FREE TIPS

Semi final 1
Perth Scochers Vs Melbourne Stars,Β 24 Jan 2017, 7:40 (AEDST) WACA, Perth.
Domestic Twenty20 KFC Big Bash league

Well after 32 games of sweat and tears we are down to the semi final matches in the closest BBL season to date. And the remaining two games are looking to tantalise the thirst of the Australian public and the BBL style of cricket.

Let’s delve into the teams in tonight’s game, in their results and how they ended up on the table.
PERTH SCORCHERS
(Home) Vs the Strikers.
It was a game where the bowlers strangled the Strikers impressive batting line up. Only two batsman made over 20 runs, Hodge (56) and Richardson (45), with Willy taking the openers of Dunk (0) and Weatherald (1) stifling them to 2/7 off 3 overs. Not to be out done M. Johnson finally removed Hodge, disposed of Pollard (4) and Neser (17) who was starting to look dangerous.
The Batting team, was a mixed bag with Kilnger failing (1) but four players cleared 20 runs or more with a combined score of 197. Bell (61), A Turner (44), M Marsh (31) and Whitman (22) all contributed to the large score which in the end was 48 runs to much for the Strikers to win.

(Away) Vs Sixers.
The Sixers bowlers didn’t allow any partnerships form which resulted in a low score of 130. The top three batsman where M. Marsh (31), Whiteman (28) and Bell (21). As a result of this batting the bowlers where unable to restrict them, with AJ Tye the only bowler to have any Impact taking 3/15 off his 4 overs. M Marsh capped off his match with a wicket and figures of 1/13 off 2 overs.

(Away) Vs Renegades.
Chasing 148, the Scorchers won by 4 wickets off the back off Klingers best game to date, making 72 off 55 balls. The rest of the Batting elements were below par, with only M. Marsh (34) and Bell (22) making considerable runs to trouble the score board attendants. The Bowlers did extremely well to restrict the Sixers batters to 148 and shared the wicket load. Willey 2/15 off 4 overs had the best figures, closely behind AJ Turner 2/25 off 4 overs, with Johnson, M. Marsh, Tye all snagging wickets.
This was a close match, with Agar taking the game to the last ball and smashing a six to win the match. Unfortunately for the Renegades, this type of close loss was an unwanted feature for the BBL 06 campaign, with losing many a game in the last over.

(Home) vs Thunder.
The Defending champions where way off the pace this BBL06 season. A classic example was against the Scorchers where they were trounced by 50 runs. It was the first game back for S. Marsh, but he was quickly dismissed for 4, whilst Klinger (38) Bell (45) and M. Marsh (44) once again asserted their dominance over a bowling attack. With Turner chipping in with a quick fire 20 off 11 balls they posted a total off 4/177. The Thunder found it extremely hard to get going, with Willey once again removing the openers cheaply Gibson (3) and Patterson (11). Watson (3) Morgan (8) Rohrer (15) and Russell (6) all failed with the bat, with Cummings (39) showing any fight in this team. Willey continued his great form with 2/21 off 4 overs and Turner, Richardson, Johnson and M. Marsh all taking a wicket. Demonstrating again a very good all round bowling attack.

(Home) vs Heat.
One hashtag “bashbros” really demonstrated this hard hitting pair of Lynn (98* off 48) and B. McCullum (50* off 31) to win the match by 9 wickets. The Scorchers posted a very respectable 6/173, with M. Marsh scoring 70, S. Marsh 32, being the main contributors with the bat. As Klinger (14) Bell (11) Turner (11) Whiteman (5) not able to with stand the Heats bowling. With Willey the only bowler to gain a wicket next to his name, 1/30 off 2 overs, the rest of the bowlers could only scratch their heads as the #bashbros belted them to every corner of the cricket ground.

(Away) vs Heat
The winning return leg over the Heat was minus Lynn and a miss firing Heat batting line up. A modest total of 5/156, off the bat of Klingers 81 runs from 54 delivers was the only batter to make significant runs, with no one else scoring over 14. Whilst the Bowlers really aimed up this time, Tye 4/22 off 3.2 overs, including the Elusive Hat trick, was a man on a mission! The early damage was by Johnson and Richardson both taking 2 wickets, Bresnan chipped it with two wickets in conjunction with Tye’s impressive bowling performance.

(Home) Vs Stars.
This loss was off a shocking batting performance by the top 5 batsman. 2 Ducks (Bell and Bancroft), Klinger 3, Bancroft 7 and S. Marsh 8. All looked lost until Tye (42 off 33), Agar (29 off 20) and Bresnan (20 off 15) managed to give themselves a total to defend. The Stars however where more than up to the match with K. Pietersen top scoring with 44*, Stoinis 40* and Quiney 35 making short work of this total and winning by 7 wickets inside 17.2 overs. Richardson was the pick of the bowlers with figures of 2/26 off 3 overs and Bresnan managed to take 1/23 off 3 overs.

(Away) Vs Hurricanes
A return to form for S. Marsh was the main point to take away from this game, with a quick fire 57 from 34 balls, which included 2 sixes and 7 fours. The small total of 134 was quickly chased down by the 14th over. Johnson was the best bowler that day with 2/15 from his 4 overs. Bresnan bowled well 2/20 and both Agar and Voges took a wicket continuing the theme of no weak bowlers.

What we have learnt is this team backs its bowling ability to no end. With all bowlers showing brilliance at times and not allowing the batsman to get settled when they are on song. They do have the odd bad match, but, this is the reason why they are number one in BBL06 (in our opinion) with the superior Net Run Rate of 0.62.
Their Batsman can be their weakness, but in saying this, they do bat well down their list. With S. Marsh gaining confidence and Klinger showing his class, the Stars will be aiming for their wickets immediately. If they can get through the top 4 batsman cheaply then it will take a massive effort from their bowlers, which they have done in past, to restrict an impressive Stars batting line up.

The Melbourne Stars will take a lot of confidence into tonight’s match with their massive win in the “furnace” last time they met. History shows though the Scorchers have the wood over them in the semi finals with 3/4 victories to date in the semi final format.

The Stars form through the series is as follows:
(Away) Vs Hurricanes
Chasing down 188 seemed to be a daunting task after Paine bashed and crashed his way to 91, but the Stars responded with out a hitch with their top 3 batsman, Quiney 75, Wright 48 and Maxwell 58 all getting a start and chasing the total down by the 18th over. This win was without one of their Star imports K. Pietersen, an impressive victory. Hilfenhaus was the only bowler to have an impact taking 3/38, with Maxwell the only other wicket taker with 1.

(Home) vs Renegades
The Stars batsman didn’t perform like the previous game, with Wright top scoring with 44. Next best was Faulkner 25 and Hussey 20. This was the trend for the Stars with no real bowler stepping up to restrict the Renegades batsman. Pick of the day was Faulkner 1/19, whilst Boland, Stoinis and Zampa also taking a wicket. Over all a disappointing effort after the first game.

(Away) Vs Thunder
They suffered their second loss in a row after Morgans monster last ball six off a terrible deliver from Hilfenhaus. The batting again only had one highlight with Pietersen smashing 60 off 37 delivers. Apart from Maxwell 34 and Wright continuing his run scoring with a quick fire 25 off 12. The next highest score was 15 and their innings contained 2 ducks. Their bowling again wasn’t up to stand, with Hilfenhaus managing 2/39 off 4 over and Boland with Zamia only managed 1 wicket each. All but one bowlers run rate was below 7, being Zampa with 4.75, a worrying statistic.

(Away) vs Renegades
The second instalment of the Melbourne derby and the Stars turned a corner with a great display of Cricket. Smashing 200 runs, top scoring was Pietersen 73, Quiney 51 and Hussey with a quick slog 27 off 11 balls. With Faulkner, Wright and Harper the only failures not scoring more than 10. Their bowling was also a class above, with Zampa 3/19 and Beer 3/32 stifling the Renegades in a complete roll reversal from the last match. Boland took 2/36 and Hilfenhaus took 1/32. A big reminder to the rest of the BBL06 not to discount this team as they dismantled the Renegades by taking the victory with 46 runs to spare.

(Home) vs Strikers
What Hilfenhaus lost in respect from the fans for his terrible over vs the Thunder he had them back on board with 32* off 24. With the Stars staring defeat in the nose, Hilfenhaus stood tall with 2 wickets and his 32* runs to snatch victory against a now floundering Striker outfit. Pietersen 32, tried to bat through the tough period where Wright, 9 runs, fell early. Quiney, 31 runs and Pietersen kept them in the fight until a middle order collapse which saw Australian representatives, Handscombe and Stoinis managing 3 runs between them. Enter Gulbis and Hilfenhaus to settle the innings and take a memorable victory. Boland finally showed his skill taking 4/30 leading the bowlers, with Hilfenhaus topping his game with 2 wickets and Bowe with 1.

(Away) Vs Scorchers
As covered by the Scorchers report, the Stars will hold little fear in going to the “Furnace” as they trounced them by 7 wickets. This will give them great confidence in tonight’s game.

(Home) Vs Heat
With the #bashbros out, many thought the Heat would be sitting ducks for the Stars minus their Australian representatives. However axed Australian star Burns with Ross chased down 138 with 7 wickets to spare. The Stars had three ducks, Quiney, Pietersen and Stoinis, Wright returned to his best with an unbeaten 60* and managed to bat threw the innings. Gotch (30 runs) and D. Hussey (29 runs) where the only run contributors with the byes coloum (16 runs) out scoring 6 of the batsman. Their bowers couldn’t stop the Heat and they could only take 3 wickets split between Hilfenhaus, Boland and Gulbis. Once again the Economy rates was a major sore point for the bowlers with only Zampa once again under 7 runs per over with 4.5 runs.

(Home) Vs Sixers
Another loss for the Stars by 3 wickets and once again their bowlers were not up to standard with the trend of one bowler under 7 runs conceded an over a poor sign. On this occasion Gulbis was that person with 6, whilst the nearest bowler was Hilfenhaus with an average of 8.3. Boland took 3 wickets however but had no back up from his bowling partners. With a wicket each to Hilfenhaus, Beer, Bowe and Gulbis.
The batters also failed in the middle order, with batsman 4 to 7 contributing just 16 runs, in which three batsman made 3 runs. The shinning light again was Wright (62), Pietersen (39) and Quiney (35). Once again in a defeat if the top 3 batsman make runs the team would struggle to make 75 runs, let alone 100.

In their wins, the Stars are unstoppable. The drama we see with them is they can fall into trouble and rely on a “Star” to make big runs or a bowler to dominate a team. As a result finishing 4th on Net Run Rate, demonstrates they have the fire power, it’s just weather they can get all the guns synced on one night or it’s a watch and hope attitude.

For the game tonight the Key for the Stars is their top three batsman. If they can get off to a flyer then the Scorchers may have issues in chasing a large total. For this reason we believe they should bat first, as their bowlers are not as disciplined as the Scorchers. They will need a large total to try and defend, to allow the loose bowling at times. However, this will play into the Scorchers hands who will want to bowl first and restrict the Stars with their much more disciplined attack and give their batters breathing room to take their time and roll the Stars.
For the Scorchers, a timely innings by S. Marsh and Klingers form over the tournament really excites us. Bell is also “due” a big score after a lean patch. If these 3 batsman can fight through the anticipated spin from the Stars from the start, they will go a long way to winning this match.

The Markets are not what we were hoping for some player performance markets on both Bet365 and Crown Bet. But we have found this gem:

FREE PLAY
K. Pietersen OVER 30.5 player performance points @Β $1.83 (bet365)

Vs Renegades, 25 points,
Vs Thunder, 60 points,
Vs Renegades, 83 points,
Vs Strikers, 32 points,
Vs Scorchers, 44 points (at tonight’s ground)
Vs Heat, 0 points
Vs Sixers, 39 points

In the big games he’s the go to man. One of the few batsman in the BBL06 to actively change his ability to bat fast and slow. He is also placed in key fielding situations, so he will be active tonight. This line of 30.5, is an excellent opportunity tonight, so long as he gets through his first 10 runs, after that, shut the gate.

BIG BASH – STARS v HEAT – FREE TIPS

Melbourne Stars Vs Brisbane Heat, MCG, 7:40pm, 17January 2016.
Domestic Twenty20 KFC Big Bash league

The top of the table match has unfortunately been diminished by the #bashbrothers not playing for the Heat tonight. Lynn is on representative duties for Australia and B. McCullum has been suspended, for a match, due to slow over rates for two games.

Add this to the Melbourne Stars impressive record of 4 wins, 3 wins in their last 3 games, you will find them around $1.50 on most books. With the Stars holding top position due to their superior Net Run Rate (NRR) over the Heat, Scorchers and Sixers, with a game in hand, a win tonight all but seals their progression into the final series.
What has been impressive recently is the way they have won games:
Defeated the Hurricanes by 7 wickets, chasing down 188 in 17.4 overs. (Away)
Defeated the Renegades by 46 runs, restricting them to 154 total runs (Away)
Defeated the Strikers by 2 wickets, chasing down 152 with 2 balls remaining (Home), AND
Defeated the Scorchers by 7 wickets, chasing 134 runs (Away)
Their teams ability to adapt and dictate terms on home and away games is a testament to their balanced team. Stoinis, is playing tonight before he heads to join the Australian team and follow team mate Zampa, has been released from camp to play in tonight’s BBL match. Both (anticipated) massive IN’s to this team with Quiney, K. Pietersen and Hussey providing very good innings. This is allowing the odd failure from Wright, not affecting the team to badly, but when he’s on, the team steps up another level again. With a bowling attack most teams would love, with the spinners in Beer and Zampa proving to be hard to dispatch in the tough early power play overs. And the Pace men have found their feet at the right time of the competition, with Boland, Hilfenhaus and Stoinis apply the blow torch to keep the pressure on for 20 overs. With the above players doubling up to hit a quick fire innings to add to the great rooster they have created.

As stated earlier, the #bashbrothers are out. This is massive, alone these two men have won games off their batting prowess. It’s going to be a big ask for the Heat tonight with those two heavy hitters out. Pressure now is on the batting team, but we won’t know their order of their batsman until their new their list. With Pierson, Ross, Burns, Heazlet, Reardon and to some extent Cutting will be all required to face this Stars team and will be up against it (in our opinion). For the Heat tonight, the key for their chance to win will be a magnificent bowling performance backed up by their fielding. If they can restrict the Stars (if they bowl first) to 150 and under they will have a chance. If the Stars crash over 165 runs plus, we are unsure if the Heat have the batters to step up and deliver the goods.

BIG BASH – RENEGADES v HURRICANES – FREE TIPS

Melbourne Renegades Vs Hobart Hurricanes, Etihad Stadium, 7:40pm, 12 January 2016.
Domestic Twenty20 KFC Big Bash league

The tale of two sides, Season kick starter Vs Season finisher

Melbourne Renegades (5th) play their 6th game tonight equalling total games with the current top 4 teams. A win gets them into the top four, a large win puts extra pressure on the Stars to Win and not fall into the bottom four log jam. With Aaron Finch dropped from the ODI team, it’s an unexpected bonus for the Renegade faithful, searching to increase their Net Run Rate (NRR) from +0.1 and to have Finch on board for the remainder of BBL06 is going to help their cause. Whilst the Renegades have been competitive in all their matches, they have lacked an ability to close a game out. This will need to change tonight and the rest of BBL06 and to prove to their fans that they are trying a few team changes are being tested. With Rimmington and Harris expected to start tonight over Tremain and Beaton respectfully.

Hobart Hurricanes (7th) will play their 7th game and it’s a must win to try and resurrect their failed campaign to date. With only 2 wins from 4 games and a dismal -0.19 NRR, tonight’s win at Etihad is a must or it’s time for the Hobart fans to choose another team to watch during the finals series. George Bailey will be a man on a mission this game to remind ODI selectors that their is a reason why he’s ranked 17th in the world and 3rd ranked in Australia (according to the ICC rankings). Bailey smashed 69 off 54 in a timely reminder for selectors and with another big performance tonight he can keep the pressure on the Australian ODI players. No real team news coming out of the Hurricanes sheds with their coach being cagey about their selections, but did leave the door ajar for K. Sangakkara in an attempt to take the spinners down town for a maximum score.

We see the Renegades winning tonight, both teams will be desperate, but we are excited about the changes to the Renegades team and believe Finch will lead from the front.

BIG BASH – STARS v STRIKERS – FREE TIPS

Melbourne Stars Vs Adelaide Strikers, MCG, 7:40pm, 10 January 2016.
Domestic Twenty20 KFC Big Bash league

The Melbourne Stars (4th) have played 1-2 games less than the current top three teams and hold an excellent 0.79 Net Run Rate (NRR). A win tonight will help make their last two losses at the hands of the Strikers a distant memory and will put a 2 point gap with a game in hand from the log jam of four teams on 4 points.
With three of their stars being out, Maxwell, Zampa and Faulkner the bulk of the runs will now have to come from Wright, Quiney, Pietersen (KP) and Hussey. They will miss Zampa’s clutch bowling also, with a possible Leg spinner rookie to take his position (team list not confirmed yet). Faulkner has been bowling well, so the likes of Beer, Boland and Hilfenhaus will have to step up and cover them.
The current standing of the Adelaide Strikers (6th) is a massive shock to their expected dominate team list and expectations of their fans from BBL05. This will be their 6th game with 2 wins and 3 losses resulting in a poor NRR of -0.14 and placing their season in real doubt.
To make matters worse, import C. Jordan has left for international duties. He’s taken 9 wickets and contributed 36 runs from his 5 innings a valued member of this team. The focus will now switch to Broad to step up in his bowling as he hasn’t reached his potential with 3 wickets from his 2 games so far. Batting wise, the team as a whole needs to help Dunk in scoring runs, not hoping he goes big each match.

Keys for Melbourne Stars to Win:
The must is Dunk’s early wicket, with scores of 85* (team total 6/196), 0 (9/149) 37*(9/152), 31 (143) and 79* (5/164). He’s top scored (*) in 3 out of his five games for the Strikers and was second highest with 31 (behind Hodge 55*) highlighting his importance to the Strikers and their team Totals (in brackets).

Keys for the Strikers to Win:
As stipulated earlier the Stars are missing some Key players. They must capitalise on this and aim to remove Quiney and Pietersen early. Quiney75 and 51 runs have been scored from two innings, while KP is starting to find his feet and form with 15, 60, and 73 runs from the once hated English import.

With both Bowling teams not performing to their best or missing players we believe it will come down to the batting aspect of these teams.

BIG BASH – THUNDER v STARS – FREE TIPS

Sydney Thunder Vs Melbourne Stars, Spotless Stadium,7:10pm (AEDST) 4 January 2017
Domestic Twenty20 KFC Big Bash league, Game 16

The Grand final replay from BBL05 and what a familiar feel for the Thunder, with zero wins from 4 starts and the Stars having only played 2 games so far are are 1 win and 1 loss. This game will decided the Thunders fate this BBL06 season and won’t the Stars enjoy delivering this fatal blow after the Thunder took the cup last year.

It’s extremely hard to see how the Thunder can turn this season around. Their batting has been well off the pace this season, with their opening four batsman averaging under 25, with Gibson leading this dismal stat off 24.25, Morgan 22, Patterson 13 and Watson 1.5. Their bowling has also struggled, unable to restrict teams to chase able totals or set defendable totals. With 159 easily chased down by the Sixers with 2 overs to spare and 9 wickets remaining. Renegades scored 7/179 off 20 overs, their total of 157 against the Heat was chased down by 2 balls 7/160 and the Scorchers blazed 4/177 off their 20 overs. The defending champions are losing E. Morgan after this match as well to add to the woes, with another Englishman James Vince to try and help their season. “Dre Russ” is also well off his devastating form, with injury niggles seeming to get the better of him, it hasn’t helped that no one else is performing forcing him to attempt to play through these. With all these issues, we see it very hard for them to turn this around. In saying this we believe that Gibson’s run total is set very low on Sports Bet at 16.5 ($1.82) as high as 23.5 on William Hill. Gibson Runs to date 53, 6×4, 0x6 (home). 39, 3×4 0x6 (away). 2, 0x4, 0x6 (home). 3, 0x4, 0x6 (away) When the Stars have been bowling, they have allowed the openers to score over 16.5 runs 3/4 times with scores of 91,21,30 and one early wicket of 1. We will back him on this low amount in a danger game.

Free Tip: Gibson Runs OVER 16.5 @ $1.82 (Sportsbet)

Cricket – Australia Vs New Zealand (Game 2) – Free Tips and Prediction

Australia Vs New Zealand, Manuka Oval, Canberra, 2:20pm, 6th December 2016
One Day International Cricket Chappell-Hadley Trophy, Game Two of Three, Australia lead 1-0.

The Australian Public are starting to believe again in this Australian cricket team, with game one going to Australia. Off the back of Steve Smith’s record ODI run score at the SCG, of 164 off 157. An incredible innings which saw him eclipse the safe bet and with some interest from game 1. Another positive sign was the Bowlers sharing the wickets around, with Hazlewood continuing his good form taking three, Cummins, Zampa and Marsh bagging two. Starc was disappointing in his showing 1/37 off 7 overs, which generally isn’t to bad, but Smith seemed to persist with the his other bowlers and take care of business. However, it wasn’t all doom and gloom for the tourists. Guptill did his best to counter Smiths impressive performance with a very good knock of 114 off 102 balls. His support couldn’t stay with him long enough with wickets falling at regular intervals, eventually proving the difference. This forced him to try and hit Zampa for another boundary but found the safe hands of Maxwell instead. If New Zealand are going to turn this series around, it’s going to require a massive effort from their bowlers, Boult was their best with 2/51 off 10, but Henry and Ferguson (1/74 off 10 overs & 1/73 off 9 overs) found the going tough.

At Manuka Oval, only 8 ODI have been played. New Zealand having not graced the playing sheds here, in contrast to Australia, which has played three times with three wins: Vs West Indies, Won by 39 runs, 06/02/2013 Vs South Africa, Won by 73 runs, 19/11/2014 Vs India, Won by 25 runs, 20/01/2016

Unfortunately the weather may play a part in this match. Early morning showers are expected and Cloud cover for the entirety of the match could be a possibility, with a chance of a light shower. Temperature is a very comfortable 24*c expected to be a low of 19*c by the time the last ball is delivered.

Key Points

1. Lose the toss at your peril. The team that has won the toss has won 8/8 matches. With 6 of these 8 wins to the team that battered first. With rumours of a pitch to be true to the batsman and have a little zing for the paceman, this toss could be the most important of the series to date.

2. Stable team Vs A change or two. Australia are not expected to make any changes, which will unbelievably keep Maxwell and Faulkner out of the team. New Zealand will be searching for a middle order batsman and/or another bowler to stand up or look to combat last matches performance. With Southee and Nicholls tipped to make those changes, however with cricket the teams aren’t announced until generally the time of the toss.

3. The Finch effect. Aaron Finch has played in all three Australian matches and has scored two centuries, 107 and 109, and 38. Amassing 254 runs in total, safe to say he loves this ground and will be comfortable in surroundings in the nations capital.

My Safe Bet for the match is:
Player Performance – Aaron Finch OVER 33.5, $1.88Β (CrownBet)
As stated above his runs alone have cleared this total, he can also take a catch or two also. We believe this line to be very generous, considering his previous match player performances of 38,129 and 107, vs this New Zealand bowling attack.

Cricket – Australia Vs New Zealand – Free Tips and Prediction

Australia Vs New Zealand Sydney Cricket Ground, Sydney 4th December, 2:20pm.
One Day International Cricket Chappell-Hadley Trophy, three game series, 2016

With the test whites being packed away and the Australian Gold being unwrapped and pressed, we get set for another ripper series. This series is against the old foe from across the ditch, who currently hold the Chappell-Hadley Trophy (CHT) after winning the series, 2-1, on their turf. However this time, they are on Australian soil and against an Australian team they have not faced at the SCG since 2009. On that occasion Australia (AUS) won by 32 runs. The only remaining players from that match are from New Zealand (NZ), Guptill who scored 6 off 16 balls and Southee, 17 off 10 balls, with the bat and having an unhappy day with the ball taking 0 wickets and hit for 52 runs of 10 overs.

In that match Australia knocked out 302 runs, which is just below their average of 307, in the the last 5 AUS matches held at the SCG: 23/01/16 – 330 vs India (AUS lost by 6 wickets), 26/03/15 – 328 vs India (AUS won by 95 runs) 08/03/15 – 376 vs Sri Lanka (AUS won by 64 runs) 16/01/15 – 235 vs England (AUS won by 3 wickets) and 23/11/4 – 275 vs South Africa (AUS won by Duck Lewis method with rain affecting the match)

The last time NZ won at the SCG, you would have to pull out the archives and dust off the cob webs and look at the match on the 17/01/02, where they won by 23 runs. The victory before that was 11/01/94 by 13 runs, a crazy statistic. For people that love statistics: 1. Historically the games won between AUS and NZ at the SCG are AUS 13, NZ 6, with 2 draws. 2. Last 5 matches AUS have won 3, NZ 1 and a Draw. 3. When AUS win, on average it’s either by 24.5 runs or 2 wickets from their last 5 matches 4. NZ only victory was by 23 runs

Weather wise, it looks like a fantastic day with the temperature predicted as a low of 20*c and a high of 28*c, courtesy of the Bureau of Meteorology.

Key Points

1. Selection choices Australia has the luxury of leaving out J. Hastings, who has taken the most wickets in the 2016 ODI calendar to date, to give P. Cummings his shot at NZ. While on the other side of the pitch, NZ have injury concerns and we will need to wait to closer to game day to see their side. Disruptions you don’t need in a 3 game series.

2. Bowling partnerships Not really spoken of since G.McGrath and S. Warne, kids google them you will be amazed how good they were together, could lock down their bowling ends and frustrate batters into poor shots. But we are seeing something special growing with Starc and Hazlewood working in stints together. In the short form of the game, these two men could really trouble this NZ team.

3. Side agenda Whats better than beating Australia, the possibility of knocking them out of the number one position in the ICC rankings. I don’t think S. Smith and his men will want to be the team to lose that ranking. For this to occur however, NZ will have to win this series 3-0 and historically this ground is hard for NZ to find a win. No matter what the press says, this is a driving force for both teams.

For this reason my safe Bet is:
Steve Smith Player performance points OVER 35.5, $1.88 (Crownbet)

Key points: 1. S. Smith has cleared this total 4/5 of his last ODI gams at the SCG. 2. On the above 5 matches his match performances were 28,105,72,47 and 77points. Giving an average of 65, or 64.8 to be specific. 3. 3/5 games he has cleared 50 runs with 72,77 and 105.

I can’t go past his last 5 matches on this ground. Also add in, the recent test win (yes lost the series, but he had a large say in who was playing) he will continue to lead from the front.
