England v New Zealand 3rd Test Cricket Betting Tips & Predictions

England have won a Test series!

No, that is not a misprint, England are currently 2-0 up in a three-Test series against World Test champions New Zealand.

New Test coach Brendon McCullum and captain Ben Stokes seem to have turned England’s fortunes around overnight, and although one swallow doesn’t make a summer, things look very promising for the national side.

The Three Lions showed plenty of character in the second Test to win the game. For all money, it looked like the Test would end in a draw, but the hosts went for it on the final day and reaped the rewards.

Chasing 299 to win the Test, normally England would have buckled under the pressure and been bowled out for 150. They would have attempted to play out a draw and got it wrong, but under McCullum and Stokes have promised to always try and win the Test at all costs.

Jonny Bairstow was the second innings hero as he blasted seven sixes and 14 fours on his way to posting 136. That knock put England in control of the Test and there was no looking back as they won by five wickets.

With the series gone, I feel England will win this one comfortably. Ollie Pope showed his quality in the second Test with 145 in the first innings to prove he can hack it at number three.

I am unconvinced whether or not Zak Crawley can hack it at Test level, but I like Pope at three and I am backing him to top-score for the hosts.

Root will always score runs and I am backing him to score over 50 runs in the first innings, while I expect Will Young to do the same for New Zealand and top-score for the tourists.
