New Zealand Vs. West Indies, 1st T20: Fantasy Cricket Betting Tips


(1st T20I Match) New Zealand Vs. West Indies Fantasy Cricket Betting Tips by Golden Jeeto

So far, the West Indies tour of New Zealand is going the Kiwi’s way. All of us hope the power hitters of Windies like Chris Gayle perform exquisitely and give us a hell of a show in the upcoming T20Is. The first T20I of this series would be held at Saxton Oval. This would be the first T20I being held here. The average 1st Innings score in ODI is 256 and the highest total ever recorded was 322, which shows that the pitch isn’t that batting friendly. Although T20Is would be a different ball altogether, the game might progress differently.

If you are planning to play fantasy cricket on the 1st T20I, which is going to be held on 29th December 2017, here are a few pointers you could use:

  1. It is true that Chris Gayle doesn’t always come through, but he is still the number 1 T20 batsman. He has the power and style to hit the ball out of the park no matter how long or short the boundaries are. Therefore, you should definitely add Chris Gayle to your team.

  2. As this is New Zealand’s home ground, it is advised that you take their bowlers, especially their pacers in your team. Mitchell Santner and Ish Sodhi have had a wonderful year in T20 and Tim Southee has been excellent as well. Santner and Tim can bat too if they get a chance.

  3. Kieron Pollard and Carlos Brathwaite are the other two Windies players that we have high hopes from for this T20I. Therefore, our suggestion is to keep them in your team as well.

Follow these fantasy cricket betting tips for the upcoming match and win big prizes and money.
