Afghanistan v Zimbabwe 1st T20I – Betting Tips and Predictions
Afghanistan should have too much for Zimbabwe when it comes to this format.
The visitors will have been buoyed by how they did in the Test series but are rightly a big price to come out on top.
While there is no value in Afghanistan’s outright winner price, there are other appealing markets to look at for this one.
Raza to be Zimbabwe’s Top Batsman
He may have been the star for Zimbabwe in the Test series, but it could be worth taking on Sean Williams in this format.
Due to his fine tons in the longest form of the game, he is the short-priced favourite to be Zimbabwe’s main man once more.
However, Sikandar Raza also bagged a few runs of his own and can relish a return to this format.
The 85 he knocked in the first innings of the second test highlight his form and he looks a good selection at the prices.
He can be backed at 4.5 with bet365 to be his team’s top batsman.
Rashid Khan for Player of the Match
Rashid Khan is understandably a very short 2.25 shot to be Afghanistan’s top wicket-taker in this match.
However, a good way of finding value could be by backing him to be man of the match instead.
Should Khan rip through the Zimbabwe batting line-up as his odds suggest then he will be close to taking the top player award, especially if he can add a few runs with the bat on top.
He is priced at 5.5 with 22Bet to get the award.
Burl is a Decent Longshot Bet
Ryan Burl took wickets in the recent Test series and can cause more problems on a slowing pitch in this first T20I.
He enjoyed a decent return in recent Zimbabwe regional cricket and seems to be making things happen in Abu Dhabi.
His price of 6.0 with bet365 is too big given the form he is in at present.
