Match Prediction – England vs New Zealand, 3rd Test 2022 – Who Will Win Today’s Match?

England will face New Zealand in the third and final Test of the series at the Headingley Stadium in Leeds beginning on June 23. It has been all England during this series and they have taken an unassailable 2-0 lead.

New Zealand haven’t been up to the challenge posed by England and have lost both the Tests by five wickets each so far. Former captain Joe Root starred for England in the first Test while Jonny Bairstow played an outrageous knock and was awarded the player of the match in the second game.

England Preview

Heading into the series, England were rocked by a plethora of changes at both the team and administrative level. Joe Root resigned as Test captain while Brendon McCullum was appointed as the new head coach.

On the pitch, however, England haven’t put a foot wrong and have been extremely dominant over the first two matches. After securing a five-wicket win in the first Test match, the hosts went one step further and scripted history at Trent Bridge.

They chased down the target of 299 set by New Zealand on the final day of the Test with the help of Jonny Bairstow’s whirlwind innings while captain Ben Stokes also played a pivotal role.

Betting Tip – Who will be the best Batsman for England?

England Top Batsman Joe Root @2.875

Visit 22Bet for more odds

Joe Root has shown no signs of stopping since 2021 and is the most in-form batter in the world. He has been on another level altogether and has scored 1480 runs in 14 matches at an average close to 60 in the current World Test Championship cycle. Root has gotten seven centuries during this period and he brought up tons in both the first and second Tests of this series.

Betting Tip – Who will be the best Bowler for England?

England Top Bowler James Anderson @3.1

Visit 1xBet for more odds

Although he was controversially dropped from the squad earlier this year, there’s no getting around the fact that James Anderson continues to be England’s most valuable bowler in the purest format of the sport. He has taken 34 wickets from nine Tests in the 2021-23 World Test Championship cycle and has been dominant on home soil once again.

England Probable Playing XI: Alex Lees, Zak Crawley, Ollie Pope, Joe Root, Jonny Bairstow, Ben Stokes (c), Ben Foakes (wk), Stuart Broad, Matty Potts, Jack Leach, James Anderson.

New Zealand Preview

New Zealand face a stiff challenge heading into the final Test of the series. They haven’t had the answers to the questions asked by England. The Black Caps have also been unfortunate to be on the receiving end of some glorious performances led by Joe Root and co.

New Zealand will probably be looking to take a leaf out of England’s book and adopt an aggressive brand of cricket. They have little to nothing to lose in the final match and need to take risks if they have any hope of defeating England.

Betting Tip – Who will be the best Batsman for New Zealand?

New Zealand top batter Daryl Mitchell @5.20

Visit Parimatch for more odds

Daryl Mitchell, surprisingly, proved to be the standout batter for New Zealand in the previous match. He played a fabulous knock of 190 in the first innings and then followed it up with 62* in the second innings.

Betting Tip – Who will be the best Bowler for New Zealand?

New Zealand Top Bowler Trent Boult @2.74

Visit 22Bet for more odds

Trent Boult has been phenomenal as usual. He has been getting good swing out of the conditions in England and has been testing the opposition batsmen. Boult has picked 21 wickets in four matches in the current WTC cycle.

New Zealand Probable Playing XI: Tom Latham (c), Will Young, Devon Conway, Henry Nicholls, Daryl Mitchell, Tom Blundell (wk), Michael Bracewell, Tim Southee, Matt Henry, Kyle Jamieson, Trent Boult

Betting Tip – Who will be the Man of the match?

Man of the Match Joe Root @5.95

Visit 1xBet for more odds

Given the form that he has been in, it’s hard to not pick Joe Root as the major contender for the Man of the Match award. He has been the most in-form batter in the world and it’s extremely difficult to get him out once he’s gotten his eye in. Root has scored consecutive centuries in the first two matches.

Pitch and Weather Conditions

The Headingley Stadium is a good batting surface and it is regarded as a batsman’s paradise in the first innings. Weather conditions will also play a big role as bowlers can get plenty of swing out of the surface.

Partly cloudy skies are expected in Leeds but rain is expected on the final three days of the match. There’s a 70-80 % chance of precipitation.

Toss Prediction

The side winning the toss should look to bat first. Runs can be scored seamlessly in the first innings.
