ENG vs PAK 1st ODI Predictions & Betting Tips

The 1st of the three-match ODI will be played between England and Pakistan starting Thursday, July 8. The match will be played at the Sophia Gardens in Cardiff. I have assorted three of the best betting tips from the ENG vs PAK 1st ODI match prediction.

After the end of Pakistan Super League 2021 and post the completion of England's ongoing series against Sri Lanka, Pakistan will tour England for the white ball comprising 3 ODI's and 3 T20's during the month of July. While Babar Azam & Co might already be in the groove of playing because of the PSL, the Eion Morgan-led side clash with Sri Lanka might act as a rehearsal to their contest against Pakistan. England will be missing out on some key players like Eoin Morgan, Jonny Bairstow to name a few as some of the members and management staff have been tested Covid positive hence the entire squad initially selected are required to go on isolation. Ben Stokes will be replacing Eoin Morgan to captain the side.

England had a good start of their home season as they defeated in T20I as well as ODI series without losing any match and will continue their good form against Pakistan as well. On the other side Pakistan have won all their international series this year and will look to extend their unbeaten runs against the top side England. The T20I series will be crucial for both sides ahead of the T20 World Cup to be played later this year. As the teams meet for their first encounter this year take a look at the top three betting tips from the ENG vs PAK match prediction.

ENG vs PAK Player Bets:

With some of the best batsmen in the circuit playing and also missing out from the forthcoming match it is a tough call to choose from. However our oddsmakers have offered odds generously in favour of a number of key players and I have managed to pick the best two out of them. Mentioned below are the top two betting tips from the ENG vs PAK match prediction.

Babar Azam To Score Over 40.5 Runs

Let us start with the Pakistan skipper who is sensational when it comes to batting across all formats. The Pakistan captain had acquired the numero uno position in the ICC ranking for the ODI batsmen. He has secured the most ODI runs for Pakistan in the last one year from 6 innings played and amassed 449 runs at a brilliant average of 89.80. In 80 ODIs, Azam has scored 3808 runs at 56.83 including 13 hundreds and 17 half centuries. He has played 16 matches against England and runs at an average of 45.64 with 639 runs from them. He went on to score 51, 15 and 115 runs in the five match ODI series played against England in 2019.

However in the recent ODI match that Pakistan played against South Africa in April 2021, the captain went on to score 94, 31 and 103 runs in the three innings leading the team to a 2-1 win. He was also declared Player of the Match in two of these games. Azam will be joining this international fixture after an epic run for his team in the PSL 2021, where he was the top run scorer of the tournament. While batting at number three, the flamboyant right-hander has maintained an average of 62.28 from 62 matches. As a captain, Azam has come out to bat in 6 matches and has maintained a brilliant average of 89.80. If you ask me this would be my favourite bet to put my money on. Dafabet.com has offered betting odds of 1.87 for Babar Azam to score over 40.5 runs in the ENG vs PAK 1st ODI match prediction.

Fakhar Zaman To Score Over 30.5 Runs

With a strong performance in almost every format at the domestic level, Zaman has been a key asset for the Pakistan cricket squad. After the captain, Babar Azam he holds the record of achieving the second highest ODI runs for his team. Zaman has played 4 ODI innings in the last one year and amassed 304 runs from them at an impressive average of 76.00. The left-handed batsman has played 50 ODI innings in his career and piled 2262 runs from it at an average of 49.17. He had an interesting innings in his last ODI outing against South Africa where the opening batter went on to score 101, 193 and 8 in the three innings played. He was declared as the Player of the match in one of these matches where he knocked 193 runs off 155 balls including smashing 18 fours and 10 sixes in them.

Zaman holds a decent record playing against the English men as well. In the 7 matches that he has played against the host, he has gone on to gather 293 runs from them at a decent average of 41.85. He has also managed to score above 30 runs in four of these innings. The left -handed batsman averages brilliantly at 71.35 from 24 away innings played till date. Under the captaincy of Babar Azam, the opening batter had come out to bat in 4 matches till date and has 304 runs at 76.00 runs to his name. He has played 38 matches in the second position and gathered 1933 runs from them at a good average of 56.85.

ENG vs PAK Team Bets:

The two sides have an old rivalry and both sides have their dominance in different areas. I have that one team bet for you which is sure to fetch you an awful lot of money. Take a look at the top ENG vs PAK team bet.

England To Win

In the ICC ODI ranking England are ranked at 3rd while Pakistan is sitting on the 6th position. Currently it is England who is dominating them and have won all the series they have played against Pakistan since 2006. The last of which came in 2019 in a five match ODI series where the three lions beat Pakistan in four matches . England will be missing out on some of the key players and Pakistan will look to take advantage of their absence.

England and Pakistan played their first ODI match against each other back in 1974 and since then the two sides have played 88 ODIs. England has been the dominating side with 53 wins. Although in ICC tournaments like the World Cup Pakistan have dominance over the English side. Out of the 48 matches played between the teams in England itself, the Englishmen have taken over 30 matches. England have won all their ODI series against Pakistan in the last 15 years and they can add one more series win to their account. Bet365.com has offered betting odds of 1.80 for England to win the ENG vs PAK 1st ODI match prediction.
