West Indies v South Africa 2nd T20I – Betting Tips and Predictions
South Africa struggled in the first match and will be demanding more of themselves in this one.
West Indies are rightly the favourites after that success in the series opener but this one could be a lot closer.
Back Gayle for Top Batsman
Chris Gayle looked in decent nick in the first game as he quickly got to 32 not out to seal the win for his side.
He hit three sixes in that short spell as well and it would be no surprise to see him do some more damage in this contest,
His price of 4.0 with bet365 to be top batsman for the West Indies looks a good price, especially if he gets a little more time at the crease.
He hadn’t played any competitive action since May but had been in decent form in the IPL this year as well.
South Africa Offer Value
South Africa may have been comfortably beaten in the first game but it seems a little too early to be writing off the visitors.
They have good spin options and a pace attack that may have needed the first game to adapt to away conditions.
If their top order can build a better foundation, in David Miller and Henrich Klassen they have a middle-order that could do some damage late on.
West Indies look to have the edge but a price of 2.41 with Parimatch about the Proteas looks a little too big.
Russell For Player of the Match
Andre Russell looks back to his best lately and was in sparkling form before the IPL was postponed.
He bagged a wicket in the last game and smashed a flurry of late sixes to seal the victory.
Backing him to have another impact with both bat and ball could be the way to go.
It’s a longshot bet but his double-figure price of 10.0 with bet365 to be the player of the match is appealing.
