Rivalries don’t come any bigger than this one in cricket, or any other sport for that matter. In truth, the players across both teams are on friendlier terms than they have been in the past these days.

But it’s still India vs Pakistan, it’s a vital game in the context of the World Cup and it means as much to the fans of either side as it ever has.

Let’s look at the best prop bets for it. But before we do, it’s worth pointing out that there’s a strong chance of rain disrupting the match.

There’s an extremely high likelihood of some rain and according to some websites, just a 60% chance the game will be completed and that there will be a result.

So even though the odds suggest we will get a result, there’s a very decent possibility that at least some overs will be lost to rain and that we’ll have a reduction of overs.

We can’t be sure of course, but that possibility needs to be considered in terms of how we go about our T20 World Cup bets.

India Vs Pakistan T20 Cricket betting tips

Here are the cricket betting tips for India vs Pakistan T20 World Cup match:

Pakistan Top Bowler – Back Haris Rauf @ 4.0 with Parimatch

The most important factor to remember here is that Haris Rauf has played considerably more cricket in Australia than any other Pakistani bowler.

Over the last three seasons, he’s featured for the Melbourne Stars in the Big Bash. His record in the Big Bash is outstanding. He has played 18 matches in the Big Bash League and taken 30 wickets, which by T20 standards, is as good as it gets.

His T20I record is also superb. He’s taken 64 wickets in exactly 50 matches.

Another factor to remember is that he’s by far the quickest bowler in the Pakistan side and that on quick, bouncy Australian wickets, even India’s star batsmen could struggle with his extra pace.

So, Rauf, it is, at a very attractive T20 cricket satta price of 4.00.

India Top Batsman – Back Rohit Sharma @ 4.5 with Parimatch

If for argument’s sake, the match is reduced to 10-12 overs a side, then middle-order batsmen may have less of a chance to make a big impact on the game than they would if it were a full 20 overs.

After all, even though opening batsmen are likely to be more aggressive than usual in a shorter game and risk getting out more than usual, if they bat for 7-8 overs then players coming in at 4, 5 or lower may not get a chance to bat much at all.

So that’s why backing the wonderful Surya Kumar Yadav at odds of 4.33 on Parimatch comes with a considerable element of risk. In other words, it makes sense to go with an opening batsman to top score. So, step forward Rohit Sharma.

His form hasn’t been the best for a while now, but this is the sort of match where he really can go for broke in a shortened affair. Not having the need to build an innings as such may well play into his hands.

Man of the match: Back Mohammad Rizwan @ 8.5 with Parimatch

India have odds of 1.53 and are favorite to win the match and the big reason for that is that they have an excellent record against Pakistan.

India have only ever lost once to Pakistan in a World Cup in either format (last year in the Group Stages in the UAE) and are 8-3 up against the men in green in T20Is.

But Pakistan are very capable of winning this after getting the monkey off their back last year and also beating them in a crucial Super 4 match at this year’s Asia Cup.

But a good alternative to backing Pakistan in the match-winner market is to go with arguably the most likely match-winner for Pakistan in the man-of-the-match market.

The nice thing about that is that because India are deemed more likely to win the game, all the favorites in India vs Pakistan ‘Man of the match’ market are Indian players, like KL Rahul (6.5), Sharma (8.0), Sky Yadav (8.0) and Virat Kohli (8.0).

But the next man on that list could have a very good chance. At odds of 8.5, you can back Pakistan keeper/batsman Mohammad Rizwan to be the game’s MVP.

Rizwan is currently the number 1 ranked T20I batsman in the world and has been for almost a year now. He’s consistently out-batted his skipper and opening partner Babar Azam of late and has been particularly good against India.

In fact, he top-scored against them in both Asia Cup matches this year with knocks of 43 and 78 not out. For good measure, he also top-scored against them at last year’s World Cup.

If Pakistan do win the match, there’s every chance he can top score again. And if that happens, he’ll be in pole position to be voted man-of-the-match at good odds of 8.5.
