As we gear up for the second ODI, I have brought you the best three betting tips from the PAK vs WI second ODI head-to-head encounter.
Mentioned below is the top team bet from the PAK vs WI head-to-head contest.
Pakistan gunned down a 306-run target in the first ODI against West Indies on Wednesday. Such wins provide a major boost to any team and it is supposed to do wonders for a team like Pakistan who are already playing in their home conditions.
In the first ODI, Pakistan were initially cautious and under pressure because of the 305 runs posted by West Indies on the scoreboard. They lost the wicket of Fakhar Zaman in the seventh but managed to score 41 runs at the completion of the 10th over. Now that Pakistan are on top after a fabulous win and their batsmen confident after chasing 306. In this scenario, Pakistan look to comfortably score over 47.5 runs in the initial 10 overs.
Moreover, Pakistan's scores in the first 10 overs of the last three ODIs before the first match against West Indies are - 57/1, 63/0, 51/1. Pakistan opener Fakhar Zaman carried a strike rate of 94.9 in the ODIs, his batting partner Imam-ul_haq 82.76. The early departure of any of these two batters will bring in captain Babar Azam who scored a hundred in the first match. Babar Azam has an ODI strike rate of 90.43. The not-so-experienced bowling unit of the West Indies will help Pakistan further. It's very likely that Pakistan will score over 47.5 runs in the first 10 overs.
