Sri Lanka v India 1st T20I – Betting Tips and Prediction
Discover our top cricket betting tips for this contest. These are based on the form of the players and the best odds on offer.
Bet on Fernando to Be Sri Lanka’s Top Batsman
Avishka Fernando ended the ODI series with back-to-back half-centuries, looking quite comfortable against the opposition bowlers.
This form, experience and knowledge of conditions can be taken into the shortest format. Fernando looks a good bet at 4.5 with 1xBet to be Sri Lanka’s top batsman in this match.
Back Dhawan as Player of the Match
Shikhar Dhawan continues to relish the opportunity to captain India in the absence of Virat Kohli. He is marshalling a relatively new-look squad well.
The added responsibility isn’t negatively affecting his primary role with the bat.
We have seen longer odds for this market previously, but Dhawan at 6.5 with 22Bet to be player of the match looks good and could bring nice value.
Choose Chahal as India’s Top Bowler
You can look forward to seeing Yuzvendra Chahal in the Indian Premier League later this year. He’s a kingpin for RCB.
For now, though, his focus is with India and the leg-spinner could anticipate conducive conditions in Colombo.
The ODI series against Sri Lanka brought him five wickets in two matches. That’ll give him confidence here. Bet on him to be the top India bowler in this match at 3.24 with Megapari.
