Australia v India 1st T20I – Betting Tips and Predictions
Australia have looked strong in the recent ODI series but India are more than capable of hitting back in style in this format.
Backing them to win here could be a decent bet at 2.1 with bet365.
However, those who do fancy them to come out on top in this match will be tempted by ComeOn offering 20/1 on India to beat Australia. It is a special offer being put in place for Indian customers for the remaining white-ball games Down Under.
Stakes on this are capped at ₹99 but the offer is on top of their usual 100% matched deposit, up to ₹10,000. Full T&Cs apply.
As well as the outright winner market, there are plenty of other markets to look at.
Finch to Hit a Six
Captain Aaron Finch struggled in the IPL but has relished being back in home conditions during the ODI series.
He is seeing the ball well and backing him to hit a six in this first T20I looks a good bet.
Finch is priced at 1.67 with bet365 to hit over 0.5 sixes in the match and comes into it after hitting six sixes in those three previous one-day clashes. Three of those came at this ground.
Kohli is Getting Back on Form
India skipper Virat Kohli had a mixed IPL for Royal Challengers Bangalore. He was brilliant at times but inconsistent at others.
However, he looked to be getting back on form during the previous ODIs, hitting 89 in the second match in Sydney before a well-worked and patient 63 at this ground in the third.
Now could be the time to start backing him to be India’s top batsman once again. His price of 3.4 with 22Bet does offer some value.
Back Sundar to Strike for India
Betting on Washington Sundar to be India’s top wicket-taker could prove to be a good outside bet if he gets picked to play.
There is a chance the RCB spinner will come into the team for this after not featuring in the ODI squad. Captain Kohli could also want him to get some game time before they head to the SCG for the second contest.
Spinners have done well at this ground before and he could be taken on by the Aussies. He had an impressive IPL campaign and it would be no surprise to see him do well here at a big price.
He can be backed at 6.5 with 22Bet to be India’s top bowler.
