India v West Indies 3rd T20I: Cricket Betting Tips
This India v West Indies series is still alive thanks to a spirited comeback by the Windies in Thiruvananthapuram on Sunday. After both teams had gone past 200 in the first match, India’s total of 170/7 had looked under par and the tourists duly chased it down with nine balls to spare.
It’s all set up nicely for Wednesday’s decider in Mumbai. Who will come through to clinch the trophy at the end of 40 overs?
What are the cricket odds for India v West Indies?
India remain favourites for Wednesday’s match but, as you would suspect, the result market has tightened just a fraction. The home side can be picked up at 1.40 with Bet365 while the West Indies have shortened to 3.00.
We predicted a 2-1 series win in favour of India and while we may not have got the results in the right order, we are sticking by that suggestion. Anyone who follows cricket will know that the Windies are a danger in the shortest format and India will need an improvement in Mumbai. The experienced batsmen – KL Rahul, Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli – need to step up and boost the run rate. And one expect an immediate response from the hosts on Wednesday.
Match Odds Summary
India 1.40 (Bet365 – Editor’s Pick), West Indies 3.00
What are the top batsman odds for India v West Indies?
The unlikely figure of Shivam Dube gave the profit in India’s top batsman market on Sunday. The youngster made 54 from just 30 balls and he’s dropped from odds of 13.00 to 10.00 for a repeat performance in Mumbai.
Virat Kohli remains the favourite here at 3.40 with Bet365 while Rohit Sharma is only just behind at 3.50. KL Rahul is next at 4.50. Longer priced Sattas include Manish Pandey at 8.00, Shreyas Iyer at 8.00 and Rishabh Pant at 10.00.
For the West Indies, Lendl Simmons was the hero of Sunday’s victory with an unbeaten 67 from 45 balls. Batting is the tourists’ strongest discipline and it’s Evin Lewis who leads their top batsman market at 3.50. Simmons is one of three joint second favourites at 5.00 and you can also claim Brandon King and Shimron Hetmyer at that figure.
Nicholas Pooran may offer some value at 6.00 while other picks for the Windies include Denesh Ramdin at 7.50 with Bet365 and Kieron Pollard at 10.00.
Shikhar Dhawan’s injury gave KL Rahul a perfect opportunity to stake his claim in this T20 side. He came through in the first game with 62 from 40 balls but he needs to be consistent moving forward.
With T20 World Cup places on the line, we are backing KL Rahul to step up and make the winning contribution for India in Mumbai.
Top Batsman Odds Summary
India: Kohli 3.40, Rohit 3.50, Rahul 4.50 (Bet365 – Editor’s Pick), Pandey 8.00, Iyer 8.00, Dube 10.00, Pant 10.00
West Indies: Lewis 3.60, Simmons 5.00, King 5.00, Hetmyer 5.00, Pooran 6.00, Ramdin 7.50, Pollard 10.00
What are the top bowler odds for India v West Indies?
We did claim an overall profit on Sunday’s second game thanks to Ravi Jadeja who returned India’s best bowling figures. Bhuvneshwar Kumar has struggled in both matches and Mohammed Shami could start in his place on Wednesday.
Shami has been a favourite of ours in Indian top bowler markets in all forms of the game and he is quoted at 4.50 with Betway for this decider. Obviously, we’d suggest checking on the confirmed line ups before taking this Satta but we feel he must come in if India are to tighten their overall economy rate.
India Top Bowler Odds Summary
Chahal 3.25, Chahar 4.33, Shami 4.50 (Betway – Editor’s Pick), Kumar 4.50, Kuldeep Yadav 5.00, Sundar 6.50
