South Africa v Pakistan 1st T20I – Betting Tips and Predictions

Here are our free cricket betting tips for this fixture. They include all the latest odds and aim to highlight the best value bets.

Rizwan to Bounce Back to Form

Mohammad Rizwan struggled in the recent ODI series but a return to this format and playing higher could see a return to form.

He was the standout performer when these sides met in Pakistan in February. He hit a half-century and century in two of the three games.

Rizwan also headed into these matches in South Africa in fine form domestically. It would be no surprise to see him respond with a decent score here.

He can be backed at 3.74 with bet365 to be Pakistan’s top batsman.

Rauf for Top Pakistan Bowler

Haris Rauf should be well suited to conditions in Johannesburg and looks a good bet in the top Pakistan bowler market.

He took three wickets at this venue in the last ODI series and can add more now.

The pace bowler also took late wickets in the previous ODI match and should be full of confidence.

He can be backed at 3.75 with bet365 to be his team’s top wicket-taker.

Back Malan for Top Batsman

Janneman Malan batted well in the final ODI of the series and can continue that form in this match.

He hit 70 runs and will be keen to take his opportunity given the absence of other big names due to IPL commitments.

Rassie van der Dussen will be a danger to this bet but he has been struggling with a leg injury ahead of this fixture.

Backing Malan to be South Africa’s top batsman looks a good bet at 3.74 with 22Bet. It also offers some value when you consider the number of batsmen the hosts are missing.
