England and Pakistan will square off in the 2nd T20I on Saturday, 10th July. The scheduled fixture will be played at the iconic Lord’s in London. I have handpicked three of the best betting tips from the ENG vs PAK 2nd ODI match prediction.
With a clinical bowling performance and an even better batting display, the new-look England side thrashed the men in green by 9 wickets to go 1-0 up in the 3-match ODI series. As the hosts comfortably registered a thumping win, the visitors never recovered from the jolt. Fakhar Zaman (47) and Shadab Khan (30) were the only two batters to cross the 20 mark as Pakistan eventually folded up at 141 in 35.2 overs.
As for the home side, Saqib Mahmood bowled brilliantly and took 2 wickets in the first over. England lost Phil Salt at 22 runs in the fifth over before Dawid Malan (68*) and Zak Crawley (58*) guided the home side to an easy 9 wickets win in 21.5 overs. Pakistan need to bounce back stronger inorder to stay alive in the series while England will be looking to seal another win in today’s match at Lord's. As the teams meet today to face off against each other in the second ODI take a look at the top three betting tips from the ENG vs PAK match prediction.
Since the England squad has been reshuffled a number of key players are not a part of this tournament. Hence I have managed to pick the top two players from each team to bet upon. Take a look at the top ENG vs PAK match prediction.
If you have followed my predictive article on the 1st ODI Zaman's scores have surely fetched you a handful sum. I have the opening batter once again for you. Zaman has been very calm at the crease in the 1st ODI. He defended the good balls and dispatched the odd bad deliveries. He was the top scorer for Pakistan with 47 runs from 67 deliveries. He is known to be a batsman with strong performance in almost every format at the domestic level, and has been a key asset for the Pakistan cricket squad. He has achieved the second highest ODI runs in the last one year. Zaman has played 5 ODI innings in the last one year and amassed 351 runs from them at an impressive average of 70.20. The left-handed batsman has played 51 ODI innings in his career and piled 2309 runs from it at an average of 49.12.
Zaman holds a decent record playing against the English men as well. In the 8 matches that he has played against the host, he has gone on to gather 340 runs from them at a decent average of 42.50. He has also managed to score above 28 runs in five of these innings. The left -handed batsman averages brilliantly at 70.19 from 25 away innings played till date. Under the captaincy of Babar Azam, the opening batter had come out to bat in 5 matches till date. He has played 39 matches in the second position and gathered 198 runs from them at a good average of 56.57. Dafabet.com has offered betting odds of 1.87 for Fakhar Zaman to score over 28.5 runs in the ENG vs PAK match prediction.
The last player bet is for the English batter who has replaced Eoin Morgan to captain the side. With Zak Crawley and Dawid Malan finishing the innings for England in the 1st ODI, Stokes did not bat in the first match against Pakistan. The left-handed batsman has played 13 ODI matches against Pakistan and scored 377 runs from them at a good average of 53.85. His highest score against Pakistan came in 2019 where he was unbeaten at 71 runs played at Nottingham. Stokes averages 47.42 in his home soil from the 55 matches played with 1666 runs to his name.
This is the first ODI match where he is representing his team as a captain. In the 2021 calendar year the all rounder last played a three match ODI series against India where he went on to score 35, 99 and 1 runs in the three innings respectively. He has generally batted in the fifth position and in the 50 matches played till date, Stokes has gathered 1941 runs to his name at 49.76. His career encompasses 99 ODI matches that he has featured in and amassed 2817 runs at 40.82. Dafabnet.com has offered betting odds of 1.87 for Ben Stokes to score over 31.5 runs in the ENG vs PAK 2nd ODI match prediction.
Clearly the winner bet is in favour of England and so are some of the other team markets. However I have fished out that one bet which will assure you a win. Mentioned below is the top ENG vs PAK team betting tip.
England last went on a head-to-head encounter with Pakistan in a five-match ODI series back in 2019. The Three Lions had piled 126 fours in the four innings played as one match was dismissed due to reasons unknown. This averaged at 31.5 runs per match. Jonny Bairstow, Jason Roy and Joe Root were the highest contributors of these smaller boundaries at 27, 25 and 19 fours each. Even in their last match against Sri Lanka earlier this month, the Englishmen had gathered 40 fours from the two matches played.
In the first ODI played against Pakistan on Thursday, England had gone on to pile 16 fours against the Men In Green who were at 13 fours. Zak Crawley and Dawid Malan had individually pitched in 7 and 8 fours each. The highest number of fours for Pakistan was hit by Fakhar Zaman at 6 fours. While Pakistan in their 2019 encounter against England had made 124 fours from their four matches. In their recent ODI outing against South Africa, the Pakistani men had scored 22, 35 and 27 runs in the three innings.
