New Zealand v India 3rd T20 International tips, odds update
Welcome to our NZ v India odds update for the third Twenty20 International at Seddon Park, Hamilton, on Wednesday, January 29.
India are in a dominant position at 2-0 in the five-match series after their resounding win in the second match at Eden Park on Sunday.
Again makeshift opener KL Rahul was in fantastic form, and the Kiwis must regroup quickly to salvage anything from this T20 International series.
The Black Caps have won seven of their nine T20s at Seddon Park but their lack of strike bowlers hurt them badly in Auckland and they will be hoping their medium-pacers are better suited in Hamilton.
India collapsed for 92 in an ODI at Seddon Park 12 months ago, but are playing with plenty of confidence after beating Australia in an ODI series at home before arriving in New Zealand.
Read on for our New Zealand v India tips and odds update for the third T20 International in Hamilton.

NZ v Ind 3rd T20 betting tips
Here are the WGL’s free tips for the NZ-India T20 on Wednesday, January 29. Read here for more information about betting on international cricket fixtures.
Martin Guptill to top score for NZ
Guptill was our only decent result when he was equal top scorer for the Kiwis in the second match and he is threatening to really rack up a big one. Guptill strikes the ball with tremendous power and he looms as the big hope for a Kiwis side looking for something special to get them back into the series. His opening partner Colin Munro has looked scratchy by contrast. This option is around the $4 mark but be sure to check out a few bookies on match day for special offers.
Jasprit Bumrah top wicket-taker for India
The paceman has bowled superbly in NZ and been so difficult to get away. The only thing he has not done is get among the wickets. The pitch at Seddon Park may offer him more assistance than what he received in the two matches at Eden Park.
Rohit Sharma to make 50 at $3
The veteran opener is due to take his turn for India, with KL Rahul and Shreyas Iyer winning all the batting plaudits so far. But when you look at the Indian line-up it’s only a matter of time before Sharma or Virat Kohli put a rival attack to the sword.
New Zealand v India predictions – 3rd T20, January 29, 2020
The Black Caps need to stop the rot and soon. With so many matches in a short space of time against the quality Indian line-up, they need to get back into the contest or it could be a long and ugly end to the summer. T20 cricket is a funny game in that an individual performance can have a much greater impact in deciding a match than it can in a Test match. We’re betting Guptill is the man to do that for NZ.
