Here are Adam Drury's cricket betting tips for the third T20I, which starts at 05:00am on Friday.
England overdue a victory
England have put themselves in a good position to chase down 176 and 180 in each of the last two T20s before collapsing on the final straight.
Eoin Morgan’s side are bound to capitalise on the same opportunities soon, particularly considering that almost every player has contributed positively at some point across the three matches.
The return of Jonny Bairstow and Chris Jordan should help the visitors claim an overdue second victory of the series.
England to win
Vince proving his class
James Vince has salvaged his international career by impressing at the start of this tour, hitting 59 and 49 in three matches so far.
The 28-year-old has now hit 40+ in six of his last 10 innings across all formats.
Assuming that he isn’t rotated out of the side for this match, he is a great bet to pass a relatively low runs line.
James Vince to score over 22.5 runs
Jordan to impress again
Chris Jordan has been a winner in this market in both of his appearances in this series so far.
The 31-year-old – arguably England’s principal fast bowler in this format – took two wickets in the first match, before backing it up with three in the second.
He has now managed at least two wickets in five of his last seven T20s for England, so is an obvious pick to lead the way again.
Chris Jordan to be England’s top wicket-taker
Taylor enjoying batting at No. 5
Given that he has scored 44, 28 and 27 in his three innings in this series, backing Ross Taylor to score at least 20 is an easy bet.
The 35-year-old bats down the order in this format, allowing Colin de Grandhomme – a naturally bigger hitter – to bat one position above him, but still has plenty of time to impress in the second half of the innings.
He has passed this runs line in seven of his last nine international innings in this format.
Ross Taylor to score over 19.5 runs
Ferguson showing consistency
Lockie Ferguson has only broken through as a serious international player in the last 12 months, but is already among the most-feared pacers in the world.
The 28-year-old has taken 25 wickets in his last 12 international matches, dating back to the beginning of the 50-over World Cup, and has taken two wickets in both of the last two T20s in this series.
That consistency should see him go close to being his side’s top wicket-taker in this one.
