England v Australia 2nd T20I – Betting Tips and Prediction
Australia would have been hurt by the way they surrendered such a strong position in the first T20I. They will also be better for finally having some competitive action under their belts.
They clearly offer the value bet in the outright winner market and would be the selection for that reason.
However, England were below their best in the first clash but still found a way to win. With a series success against their old rivals in their sights, they could come out firing from the off.
Finch to be Australia’s Top Batsman
Skipper Aaron Finch looked in solid form in the first contest, especially alongside David Warner as the duo fired their team to a great start.
With Warner being the favourite in this market, it could be worth taking him on with Finch.
His odds of 3.74 with 22Bet looks a good price and has to be worth backing.
Morgan the Value for England
All eyes will rightly be on Jos Buttler once again when England come out to bat in this format. He was in scintillating form in the first fixture before falling for a 29-ball 44.
However, given opening partner Bairstow’s patchy form, if Buttler was to fall early then England could be looking to Eoin Morgan to get the job done.
He is playing some of the best cricket of his career at the moment despite falling cheaply at this venue on Friday. That does mean his price to be England’s top scorer certainly looks value at 6.0 with bet365.
Buttler to Beat Bairstow to 10
We like the look of this bet from 22Bet. Backing Jos Buttler to get to 10 runs before Jonny Bairstow looks a great play at 2.0.
Bairstow has struggled to get going recently, while Buttler showed just what he can do in the first five overs in the first fixture. Buttler doesn’t hang around and will likely be on strike from the off.
