David Warner could be a serious threat to New Zealand. He has an amazing record against New Zealand and with his current form, he would destroy the Kiwi’s bowlers career. He has an average of 48.27 with highest being 156 runs. He could be an x-factor.
J Neesham is in super form with 173 runs in four innings and has an average of 57.66. J Neesham holds an average of 32.60 against Australia with the highest being 74. Neesham has delivered at the big stages and also in crucial moments, so he is worth betting on.
