West Indies v Pakistan 1st T20I – Betting Tips and Predictions
This is an intriguing series against two dangerous teams that are both playing well at present.
With the T20 World Cup edging ever closer, it will be a chance to also pick up some information with that competition in mind.
Back Rizwan for Top Batsman
Mohammad Rizwan was in excellent form in the T20I series against England.
He made scores of 63, 37, and an unbeaten 76 in the final clash and can continue that here.
The opener is also full of confidence after leading Multan to the PSL title this year and looks a good bet in the top Pakistan batsman market.
Rizwan can be backed at 3.4 with 20Bet.
Walsh is a Value Bet
Hayden Walsh Jr was among the wickets against Australia and conditions should suit him once again.
He did well in the T20Is but bagged a five-for at this venue in the first ODI.
The pitch at Bridgetown will continue to slow after so much action and he looks a value bet to be his team’s top bowler.
Walsh can be backed at 4.8 with 20Bet to take that honour.
Pakistan to Have Highest Opening Partnership
A feature of Pakistan’s efforts against England was the strength of their opening pairing.
Mohammad Rizwan and Babar Azam often made a measured yet solid start to build the foundations of their innings.
Their middle-order failing to fire on the back of that has been their biggest issue.
While the Windies have been excellent against Australia, they have chopped and changed their opening due. Evin Lweis, Lendl Simmons and Andre Fletcher have all been swapped in and out at some stage.
Pakistan can be backed at 1.85 with 1xBet.
