South Africa v Pakistan 2nd T20I – Betting Tips and Predictions
Here are our free cricket betting tips for this contest. They include all the latest odds.
Markram to Star for South Africa
Aiden Markram smashed a fine half-century in the first clash and can be in the runs again.
He came into this series after some big-hitting in the ODI series and is in good form.
Backing him to be South Africa’s top batsman looks a good bet, especially if Rassie van der Dussen was to miss out once again.
He is priced at 4.0 with 22Bet to be his team’s top run-scorer, which looks a price worth considering.
Fakhar is Value in Top Batsman Market
Fakhar Zaman was in eye-catching form in the ODI series that came before this and looks a value play in the top batsman market for Pakistan.
Babar Azam is a short-price favourite despite falling cheaply in the first T20I and Mohammad Rizwan is second-favourite after finally getting a score himself.
However, should one of those fall early then Zaman coming in a three can take advantage. He hit 27 from 19 balls in the last game and looks ready to build on that now.
His price of 4.33 with bet365 looks a little too big.
Shaheen to Take More Wickets
Shaheen Afridi didn’t have the biggest impact in the first game but count him out at your peril.
He has taken at least one wicket in his last eight matches.
Afridi has been flying this year, both domestically and on the international stage, and can exploit his height and pace at Johannesburg for this fixture.
Backing him to be Pakistan’s top bowler is appealing at 3.24 with 22Bet.
