Cricket arena

Iqbal good value

Tamim Iqbal to be Dhaka Platoon top batsman @ 4.0

Bangladesh’s most prolific batsman post the Mohammad Ashraful era, storming into the world stage with a match winning knock against India in the 2007 ICC Cricket World Cup. Since then, it was no looking back for the southpaw who became the team’s most potent opener of all time. His stroke-play is sublime and is suited for all formats of the game, including T20. His stint with Comilla Victorians last season saw them win the Bangladesh Premier League title. Iqbal scored a flawless 141-run innings in the final of the competition last season to steer his team to a victory. He was the second highest run scorer in the 2018-19 season, scoring 467 runs at an average of 38.91.

In the last 5 matches the explosive batsman featured in the Bangladesh Premier League, he scored 250 runs at an average of 50 per match. That’s not all. Iqbal was the top scorer for his team in 3 of those matches. More importantly, other players do not quite match the quality of Iqbal at this level. Laurie Evans has been amongst the runs and even played in the league last year, but his record is inferior to that of his teammates. His overall average of 30.20 in T20s is also quite inspirational. Now, it’s quite understandable why this bet is going to bring you money, you know what to do.

Value in Jayed for Royals´ top bowler

Abu Jayed to be Rajshahi Royals top bowler @ 4.33

Abu Jayed might not be an experienced campaigner in the international stage, who made his debut last year, has got all the ingredients to make it big. With a decent outing away to India last month, he is raring to go the distance. Jayed was the highest wicket-taker for his former team Chittagong Vikings in the previous season with 18 scalps from 13 matches. He managed to bag six wickets in the last five matches he played in the Bangladesh Premier League, out of which he was the pick of the bowlers on two occasions. These stats might not incline you to invest money on the bet, but let’s look at this from a different angle.

The other bowlers in the side are Taijul Islam and Mohammad Irfan. The played 12 matches for Khulna Titans last season and managed to pick up 13 wickets which is below par. On the other hand, Mohammad Irfan played 5 matches for Sylhet Sixers in the same time frame with just scalps to his name.  Meanwhile, their T20 record also doesn’t look glittery, although Abu Jayed has a pretty impressive one having taken 56 wickets in 46 matches. There’s no point in thinking twice before placing a bet for the speedster, because you are assured of handsome returns.

Likely outcome for sixes

Total match sixes to be over 9.5 @ 1.83

Bangladesh has always offered decks which has been batsman’s paradise and the Sher-e-Bangla Stadium in Mirpur is no exception. Widely used for International games, the ground has witnessed high scoring matches and most essentially, a high percentage of sixes. In the last five Bangladesh Premier League matches played at the venue last season, 70 sixes have been hit by an average of 14 per match. Most importantly, 24 sixes were hit in the final match last season, which speaks loads of what we are going to expect with the likes of Tamim Iqbal and Andre Russell facing each other.

To take a closer look at why this bet is suited for you, let me give you a different perspective. Tamim Iqbal, Andre Russell and Hazratullah Zazai are arguably the best hitters for their respective nation ad have been in impeccable form off late, at least in terms of number of sixes hit. In the last edition of the BPL, Tamim Iqbal hit 23 sixes in 14 matches, Russell hit 28 maximums in 15 matches (2nd overall), while Zazai managed to clear the ropes on 13 occasions in just 7 matches. There’s no chance that we are having less than 10 sixes in the upcoming match. Just go for this bet, it’s a win-win situation all along the way!
