Colin Munro top New Zealand batsman (Series) vs India

Cricket - T20I - 01 Nov 13:30

This looks a value price on Munro. He's growing into a good T20 batsman, he is still capable of blazing away early on in the innings but has started to add a bit of maturity to his game where he can play "proper" innings.

He impressed me in the CPL, scoring 366 runs at a good average (36.6) and strike rate (135) on some challenging tracks. He already has a T20I ton for NZ, so he's shown he can transfer that ability to the international arena. He opened up in the recent ODI's, struggling to begin with but grew into the series and made 75 in the 3rd ODI. He's been inconsistent but spent the early part of his career as a middle order batting all-rounder, he's still been learning his trade as a top order batsman and it might just be clicking for him now.

Williamson is favourite, he's a classy player but I prefer him in tests to white-ball cricket. Guptill looked in poor touch in the recent ODI series, he's good enough to turn that around but it's not ideal coming into a quick-fire format like T20. Phillips is an impressive young player, if he gets the chance to open up then he'd be a danger but I can't have him at a shorter price than Munro.

It's just a 3-match series, so one big innings could be enough to scoop it. The NZ order is still under-decided (they have 4 potential openers) so it's not one to go mad about but Munro at 6/1 looks generous (as short as 9/2 elsewhere). Half points, 5 point stake.
