India v Pakistan: World Cup Cricket Betting Tips

By Matt Harris on June 14, 2019

One of the highlights of any major cricketing tournament will shortly be upon us. Ahead of one of the old cricket rivalry, read our World Cup tips for India v Pakistan.

Even the neutral fans have been waiting for this one. But for those directly involved, India v Pakistan on Sunday may just be the highlight of the tournament. In recent World Cups, India have held the upper hand. Nevertheless, Virat Kohli’s men will still be hurting from that defeat in the final of the 2017 ICC Champions Trophy.

Will India exact revenge or are Pakistan set for another upset?

What are the World Cup tips for India v Pakistan?

India were denied the chance to make it three wins from three when their clash with New Zealand was the latest to fall victim to the English weather. Their record remains superior to that of Pakistan and, following defeat to Australia on Wednesday, the World Cup betting market is a clear one.

Pakistan are very much the outside bet at the sportsbooks here at 1.40. Meanwhile, cricket bettors can claim India at 3.00. There is, naturally, a chance of an upset. Furthermore, the absence of key batsman Shikhar Dhawan will give the Pakistanis some hope.

India will need to fill that batting hole, but at times we overlook their impressive bowling unit. There may be a question as to whether Ravi Jadeja comes in for the struggling Kuldeep Yadav. Nonetheless, we suspect that India’s bowlers can contain Pakistan sufficiently to claim the points.

Match Odds Summary: India 1.40 (Betway – Editor’s Pick), Pakistan 3.00.

– India Batsman Picks

With Shikhar Dhawan sitting this one out, the battle to deliver a profit in India’s top batsman market could become a race between two men. Virat Kohli leads the way, as usual, and you can claim the skipper at odds of 3.10 with Bet365. Rohit Sharma follows at 4.00. His new opening partner, KL Rahul, can then be found at 5.00.

Vijay Shankar is looking for a chance to impress, and he is quoted at 7.50. Other picks for India include Dinesh Karthik at 8.50, MS Dhoni at 10.00, and Kedar Jadhav at 12.00.

– Pakistan Batsman Picks

For Pakistan, a number of batters made solid, double figure scores against Australia. However, no one could kick on to make a winning contribution. Imam-ul-Haq top scored with 53 and he is now a joint favourite to repeat that feat against India at 4.00. Babar Azam is also on offer at 4.00. Meanwhile, Fakar Zahman is out of form and drifting to 5.00.

Mohammad Hafeez continued to look in solid touch against the Aussies and can be picked up at 6.00. Elsewhere, 8.50 is being offered on Shoaib Malik, while both A sif Ali and Sarfaraz Ahmed are quoted at 10.00.

There are some good value picks on either side. No price stands out like the one for MS Dhoni, though. The former skipper will usually top score at least once in any tournament. Moreover, it’s tough to recall him being out as high as 10.00.

With Dhawan out of the picture, MSD has an even better chance to convert a profit. We just don’t feel we can turn him down at that figure.

Top Batsman Odds Summary: India: Kohli 3.10, Rohit 4.00, Rahul 5.00, Shankar 7.50, Karthik 8.50, Dhoni 10.00 (Bet365 – Editor’s Pick), Jadhav 12.00 .

Pakistan: Imam 4.00, Azam 4.00, Zahman 5.00, Hafeez 6.00, Malik 8.50, Ali 10.00, Ahmed 10.00.

What are the total match sixes World Cup tips for India v Pakistan?

We’re going to finish this preview by taking a World Cup 2019 Satta on the outsiders this time. Pakistan are available at a generous price of 2.50 with Betway to register most sixes in this game. We’re tipping that all the way.

Pakistan actually won this market against Australia simply because their lower order batters were teeing off in a losing cause. Furthermore, we can see that scenario happening again. Dhawan’s injury could also play a part in this market, but for sheer value, that 2.50 price is worth more than a second look.

Most Sixes Odds Summary: India: 1.72 (Betway), Pakistan 2.50 (Betway – Editor’s Pick), The Tie 8.50.
