<div><p style="text-align:center"><strong>Fourth T20</strong></p><h2 style="text-align:center"><strong>New Zealand vs England</strong></h2><p style="text-align:center"><a href="" target="_blank" title="Game Odds"><strong>Friday 8 November, McLean Park, Napier</strong></a></p><p>New Zealand are one win from wrapping up the series with a game to spare after England’s calamitous collapse in game three in Nelson.</p><p>The tourists were cruising to victory but lost their nerve. It was not that surpris-ing. A lot of their players are unfamiliar to the pressures of international cricket. That collapse – coupled with dropped catches that did for them in game two – are entirely predictable for an outfit which has left many of its best players at home and experimented with newbies.</p><p>Still, the game’s have been competitive and that’s all punters can ask for. Indeed, the wicket (or should we say ground) for this contest should be a great leveller for the teams. McLean Park is a rugby ground and its square boundaries are very short, allowing boundaries to be scored with ease where on other grounds they would be kept to twos or threes. This is more than players getting full value for their shots. It’s value and then some.</p><p>Talking of value and then some, we’re on the hunt for prices which suggest book-ies are not aware as they should be to the potential for a run festival in Napier. <a href=";a=bf7f64f4-cd67-4904-9b00-6ded1d41fd18&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Well rated bookmaker">Bet365</a> go 1.83 (5/6 in old money) that the highest individual score is over or un-der 65.5. We want to go higher. Alas the layer are on to it and with seven from 16 losers on the overs, there’s no edge.</p><p>That’s a trend across the markets, frustratingly. Layers have pitched runs mar-kets artificially high it seems and we’re loathe to go under knowing it will take only one guy to get in to torpedo a wager. In-play could be the way and it might be shrewd to go over 190 innings runs at around the 3.0 mark.</p><p>Alternatively, Colin Munro has big appeal at 9.0 (8/1) across the board on the man of the match markets. Statistically he should be shorter and the favourite. In an ideal world, Munro would bat first as he averages 11 runs more than batting second. A late drift on Betfair for top bat from to 4.2 also makes him value.</p><p><strong>Best Tips for the match: </strong><a href="" target="_blank" title="Game Odds">Back Munro top NZ bat (batting first)</a> at 4.2 <a href=";a=8ec6399a-9df1-4c52-b272-39e6428836a6&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Top Rated Bookmaker">Betfair</a></p><p style="text-align:center"><img alt src="" style="width:100%" /></p></div>
