ICC T20 Cricket World cup betting
Over the years, Twenty20 cricket—T20 as it is also known—has delighted audiences across the world. Cricket world cup betting gets a lot of attraction from betting markets and rightly so. Cricket’s shortest official format has its share of passionate fans, thanks in good part to the rise of global T20 leagues such as the Indian Premier League (IPL), Big Bash League (BBL), etc.
Matka gambling is done in heavy numbers in T20 matches and especially T20 World cup. Now in its seventh edition, the T20 World Cup was scheduled to be held in Australia from October 18-November 15. But the tournament has been postponed to 2022 due to coronavirus pandemic threat.
The International Cricket Council hasn’t decided on new dates. The 2021 T20 World Cup will be scheduled in India like set before. There are no changes for next year’s T20 World Cup. Australia will now host T20 World Cup in 2022.
Satta players wait the most for T20 Cricket World Cup. The fast-paced T20 generates a lot of interest among cricket enthusiasts, and cricket World Cup betting will see a lot of bookmakers betting on a variety of subjects like cricket betting.
Though the T20 World Cup has been postponed, fans’ focus was on teams like Australia, India and the West Indies. Online cricket betting odds will be attractive for these three teams on platforms like Bet365. While the first two teams have some of the best T20 batsmen and bowlers in their squads, West Indies are known for their hard-hitting batsmen who play across globe in different leagues.

Can Team India reclaim the T20 World Cup next year?
Since their triumph in the inaugural T20 World Cup in 2007, there have been 11 other ICC events (across the ICC World Cup, Champions Trophy, and T20 World Cup) and Team India has reached the knockouts seven times. This is a good cricket betting tip to follow. To put things in perspective, the ‘Men in Blue’ have made at least the semi-final in seven of the last eight ICC tournaments, commencing with the title run at the 2011 World Cup and now, most recently, a semi-final showing in the 2019 World Cup (lost to New Zealand).
The good news? The Indian cricket team has been in promising touch at such semi-final events. The not-so-good news? They haven’t been able to get over the line. Of the seven times they made the knockout rounds, they went on to win the title on just two occasions (2011 World Cup, 2013 Champions Trophy), neither of which was a T20 World Cup.
Recently, Sourav Ganguly — former captain and now president-elect of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI)—stated that he’d like to see the Indian team management focus on winning more ICC events. So, it goes without saying that the topic of India’s silverware, rather the lack thereof since 2013, is an elephant in the room. India has always seemed to defy the odds and you can put satta on India to win the 2020 T20 World Cup that will now be scheduled in 2022.
India seem to be the favourites according to current cricket betting odds for lifting the T20 World Cup trophy. With odds of 3.25, this can be a good satta pick.
You can do match betting on India and win good amount of money.
Can Virat Kohli Rally The Troops & India’s cricket world cup betting odds?
Virat Kohli, the current captain, is among the best batsmen in world cricket irrespective of the format and he is ably supported by the likes of Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, Cheteshwar Pujara and Ajinkya Rahane. While the squad has the experienced lot, which has been the mainstay of the team for a long time, the team has added spunk in the form of Rishabh Pant, KL Rahul, Manish Pandey and all-rounder Hardik Pandya, among others.
The bowling resources have been firing too, with Jasprit Bumrah leading the way. Not too far behind are Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Yuzvendra Chahal, Kuldeep Yadav and the newly-recruited Deepak Chahar. Veterans such as Ravichandran Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja may not be shoo-ins, but are formidable names any day given their experience in Twenty20 cricket. What’s even more enticing is the form they have all consistently shown in a demanding tournament like the IPL year after year, which—lest one forgets—features cricket stars from other countries.
Coming to how India has fared in Twenty20 Internationals, the numbers are impressive. The Indian team has a winning (or level) record against every country it has faced, except New Zealand. Interestingly, the Blackcaps have been India’s bogey team in ICC events (the Kiwis lead 8–3 across the three different limited-overs ICC tournaments).
India’s record against Australia on their soil has also been good. India has played nine T20Is in Australia, winning five times and losing three times, one of which was a close affair. In fact, in each of the five wins, they had lost the toss.
Do India Have A Chance Of Winning The T20 World Cup 2020?
All said, writing off India’s chances at the ICC Cricket World Cup next year would be silly. Results speak for themselves. While Kohli continues to pile up runs and records with ease, he has a well-rounded unit around him which can score big and skittle the opposition. What’s more? They have proven their mettle in different conditions.
India has betting odds of 3.25 according to Betway platform and matka gambling can be done on this betting type as we are tipping India to lift the T20 World Cup.

Successful teams in T20 World Cup history and in T20 International cricket
Across six previous editions, five nations have hoisted Twenty20 International cricket’s most coveted trophy. West Indies is the only team to have won the T20 World Cup more than once, having triumphed in 2012 (defeated Sri Lanka) and 2016 (defeated England). Overall, surprisingly, the men in maroon only have a 46.3% winning record in the format. In World Cup matches, their record is a credible 58.3%.
Sri Lanka, champions in 2014 (defeated India) and two-time runners-up (2009 and 2012), have a 64.3% win percentage in T20 World Cup games, and 50.42% overall.
Timeless rivals India (63.7%) and Pakistan (62.7%) are among the most successful teams in all of Twenty20 International cricket and have each won the T20 World Cup once. India beat Pakistan in the inaugural World Twenty20 in 2007, a last over thriller no less, and Pakistan triumphed in the second staging of the event in 2009 (defeated Sri Lanka).
Meanwhile, South Africa’s cricketing woes have continued in the game’s shortest format. While they boast a respectable 60.1% win percentage overall, they are yet to reach the final of a T20 World Cup, let alone win it.
Australia Is Still Looking For Their First T20 World Cup
England, the only other winner of the T20 World Cup in 2012 (defeated Australia) have a 51.9% record, whereas Australia—giants of Test and One Day International cricket, and hosts of the T20 World Cup 2020—are still searching for their first title. The Aussies have a winning percentage of 53.5% and New Zealand, their Trans-Tasman rivals, come in at 52.1%.
Bangladesh has the lowest win percentage (33.3%) among the ten best teams in the format. Afghanistan might have the best ratio (68%), but most of their wins have come against minor countries such as Ireland, Scotland, Zimbabwe and UAE among others. It must be noted that they have beaten Bangladesh four times from six outings, but are collectively 1–11 against the other nations in the top 10 (yet to play Australia and New Zealand).
While doing matka gambling, Australia can be a great betting option to lift the T20 World Cup.
In recent times, Pakistan has reigned atop ICC’s Twenty20 International cricket rankings. Shoaib Malik, who was the first man to play 100 T20Is, is among the most successful run scorers in the format, while the likes of Shahid Afridi, Umar Gul and Saeed Ajmal have made merry with the ball. The four were instrumental during the victorious 2010 campaign, but only Malik (now almost 38 years old) remains active. Pakistan continue to hold firm. The exploits of Babar Azam and Fakhar Zaman with the bat, and Imad Wasim and Shadab Khan with the ball, make them formidable opponents.
ICC Cricket World Cup Betting Tips and FAQ
- Betting Tip 1 – Choose a player according to the market you are betting in. For example: among active players, Imad Wasim has been the most restrictive (superior economy rate) in T20I cricket, but he has not played a T20I match in Australia. How will that affect him? Read our team preview here.
- Betting Tip 2 – Betting odds are heavily influenced by a team’s form and the conditions that are expected to be in play. The T20 World Cup 2020 is being played in Australia, where not many teams have tasted success. Be sure to do your research, be it head-to-head matchups, venue information, or prevalent form. Here’s what our expert thinks is in store.
What is the difference between ODI and Twenty20 cricket?
First and foremost, ODI cricket sees each team play 50 overs, while Twenty20 cricket—as the name suggests—is 20 overs a side. Power hitting is prominent in T20 cricket and the format is more dynamic: players need to be extremely proactive. Hence it is imperative for bowlers, especially, to inject variation. While the condition of the pitch is crucial in both formats, given the duration of an ODI game, reading the pitch becomes all the more important as changes in conditions become more apparent.
