T20 World Cup Tips & Previews, Thursday 11th November

Our cricket analysts run their eyes over the T20 World Cup fixtures between England versus New Zealand and Pakistan versus Australia.

The T20 World Cup Semi Finals are upon us as our team of experts dive into the two big fixtures between England and New Zealand as well as Pakistan and Australia. 

The best bets for each game have found value in both the batting and bowling markets in both games. 

England vs. New Zealand

November 11th 1:00am

It is the first time England and New Zealand meet at an international tournament since their tied ODI World Cup Final finish back in 2019 at Lords.

Now, under the different format of T20, the Kiwis will look to extract revenge after suffering a heartbreaking Super Over defeat.

New Zealand cannot be underestimated with the likes of Trent Boult doing brilliant things with his fast seamers alongside his usual partner in crime Tim Southee. 

Then you have veteran batsman Martin Guptill who has 176 runs at 35.20 and a strike-rate of 131.34 for the tournament. 

His form will be needed if the Kiwis are a chance to knock off this in-form English team who are also having to deal without the batting services of Jason Roy. 

Johnny Bairstow seems the likely replacement for Roy, and an able one at that. 

But it could very well be the form of Jos Buttler that carries England over the line here. 

Buttler has racked up the remarkable figures of 240 runs at 120.00 in five matches to date, at a rampant strike-rate of 155.84. 

That is enough to give England the slight edge. 

Suggested Bets:
England head to head at $1.53
Jos Butler top English batsman at $3.3
Martin Guptill top New Zealand batsman at $3.8
Trent Boult top New Zealand bowler at $3.70


Pakistan vs. Australia

November 12th 1:00am

Australia and Pakistan will do battle to book a spot into the T20 World Cup Final when they go head to head in Dubai on Friday morning.

The Australians have somewhat surprised many a cricketing pundit around the world by getting this far in the tournament with the T20 format being the weakest for the green and gold. 

Pakistan, meanwhile, is yet to drop a match in this tournament having swept aside all before them. 

The talk of the town has been the incredible run-scoring feats of wylie old veteran Shoaib Malik. 

The 39-year-old flailed his willow about in a 72-run win over Scotland by smashing six sixes on his way to 54 not out off only 18 deliveries. 

But this Australian bowling attack possess a completely different threat to that of Scotland and Pakistan will not be afforded the luxury of scoring runs as easily as it did against the Scots. 

Josh Hazlewood has been in sensational touch with the ball and the form of David Warner is something that will have the Australian dressing room up and about as the ever enigmatic opener swashbuckled his way to 89 not out off 56 balls in the eight-wicket win over West Indies. 

Australia has actually won the last two T20 fixtures it has played against Pakistan but did have the home-ground advantage, with Pakistan looking towards its 2018 form in Dubai where it last defeated Australia in this format. 

Siding with the Australians to reach the final. 

Suggested Bets:
Australia head to head at $1.98
David Warner top Australian batsman at $3.80
Babar Azam top Pakistan batsman at $3
Josh Hazlewood Australian top bowler at $4.35
