NZ vs ENG Match & Dream 11 Prediction, Betting Tips, Playing 11, Pitch Report and Analysis - Feb 25, 2018

England had a successful ODI series against Australia and will now look forward to a 5-match ODI series against New Zealand that starts with the 1st ODI at Hamilton on 25th February. While the English didn’t impress in the T20s tri-series, they did drive home the point that they are strong in the 50-over format; it needs to be seen if they can outwit the Kiwis in their own backyard. New Zealand, on the other hand, need to deal with a slow pitch at Hamilton and despite having a good record at home, will have to conquer the challenge here against the English pace.

NZ vs ENG Team Previews

New Zealand

Kane Williamson leads the side that consists of experienced batsmen like Colin de Grandhomme, Martin Guptill, Tom Latham, Ross Taylor, Henry Nicholls, Colin Munro and all-rounder Todd Astle, who is recovering from injury. Ish Sodhi will back-up for Todd Astle in the spin department if the latter is not fit for play while the pacers Trent Boult and Tim Southee are available to help them demolish the opponents.

Tom Latham is expected to fill in the role of wicketkeeper-batsman and brings depth to the middle order along with others like Taylor, Nicholls and Munro, making it a tough ODI side. Both Ross Taylor and Kane Williamson are on the cusp of reaching 5000 runs in ODIs, and they are in good form to do so here. They might have to change their aggressive batting style to suit the pitch conditions in the first game.

Overall, the Kiwis have an upper hand here with the home advantage; with a well-balanced team consisting of batsmen and bowlers, New Zealand could prove to be a tough nut to crack.

New Zealand Playing 11

Martin Guptill, Colin Munro, KS Williamson, Ross Taylor, TWM Latham, Henry Nicholls, Colin de Grandhomme, Mitchell Santner, TG Southee, IS Sodhi, TA Boult.


Ace all-rounder Ben Stokes returns to the squad and could fire all cylinders in the upcoming match along with other fast-bowlers like Tom Curran, Mark Wood and Chris Woakes. All-rounder David Willey also brings variety to the attack, while spinners Adil Rashid and Moeen Ali can outwit the Kiwis here. The batting line-up has players like Jason Roy, who scored a powerful 180 the ODI against Australia in Melbourne recently, Joe Root, Jonny Bairstow, captain Eoin Morgan and wicket-keeper batsman Jos Buttler.

England has won eight out of nine bilateral ODI series in recent times and are in good form to dominate the hosts here too. At this venue, the team has had a poor run losing both the ODIs that they played here; however, this is a motivated side that has been performing well under pressure, and we could see a different outcome on Sunday.

They come here at the back of a ODI-series win against the Aussies, and this has surely boosted the morale of the players to do well here. If they can strategize well with the ball and stabilize the top-order, England could well go on to emerge victorious.

JJ Roy, Jonny Bairstow, JE Root, Eoin Morgan, BA Stokes, Jos Buttler, Moeen Ali, CR Woakes, AU Rashid, Tom Curran, David Willey.

NZ vs ENG Betting Tips

The Kiwis will be geared up for the fight against a tough side like England, after the home season against disappointing opponents West Indies and Pakistan; they have a well-balanced side that could dominate here. However, we feel that England with their recent winning form in the ODI format are better placed to win on Sunday.
