To double the fun, I have handpicked three guaranteed bets for you from the market and listed them below. Just go through them and invest strategically to win loads of money by the end of the game.

Tamim Iqbal to give Bangladesh a flashy start

Backing a player to score 30 runs in a T20I is a risky proposition, but when you are talking about someone like Tamim Iqbal, chances are likely that you are going to end up on the winning side. In the three matches he has played so far this year, his scores were – 41, 65, 39, scoring a total of 145 runs at an average of 48.33 runs per innings and has passed the 29-run mark in each of those occasions. Since we are backing his recent form, it would be wise to look at his exploits in the recently concluded Bangladesh Premier League.

In the 12 matches that he played for the Dhaka Platoons, the southpaw managed to race up a total of 396 runs at a sound average of 39.60. Out of which, he played nine matches at the Shere Bangla National Stadium. His last five matches’ scores at the venue were – 3, 1, 34, 40, 68 – having scored at least 30 in three of those occasions. Overall, Tamim has played 70 T20 matches in Dhaka and scored a total of 1975 runs at an average of over 30 runs per innings. With Bet365 offering 1.72 times the risk, I would advise you to cash in for this deal.

Sean Williams to clear the ropes at least once in the match

One of the senior-most members of the Zimbabwean setup, Sean Williams has been a lifeline for the African side in limited formats of the game. Going along the same lines, then left-hander hasn’t been shy of swinging his bat in the 20-over format quite often. Even in the last match, he hit a couple of sixes, even though it was insignificant in the context of the game. Having played just five matches in this calendar year, the southpaw has hit a total of 10 sixes at a rate of two strikes per game and managed to hit once in three of those matches.

I wouldn’t mind a pocket pinch for this deal, where he has to hit just one out of the park. The other reason which has worked in our favour is Williams’ away record. In the 19 matches he has played on the road, the batsman has hit as many sixes, which totally works in our favour. As per the records, his big-hitting skills show an upward curve in the 2nd match of a series, having played 11 matches and hit a total of 10 sixes, which is almost one six per innings. This is a bet you should not miss out on.

Mustafizur Rahman to shine with the ball

A slightly riskier bet than the previous two, but how can we possibly keep ‘Fizz’ out of the action. With Bet 365 offering odds of 3.50, we cannot keep calm and I have already given in. In the last five matches against Zimbabwe, his figures were - 3/32, 2/38, 1/31, 2/19, 2/18, having taken 10 wickets at a rate of two wickets per match and were the pick of the bowlers in two of those games. Incidentally, in the three matches that he has played at the venue against Zimbabwe, he was the top bowler twice. You can guess which way we are heading to.

Mustafizur’s heroics at home are not unknown, having ended up as the highest wicket-taker in the 2019-20 Bangladesh Premier League with 20 scalps in 12 matches. In the last five matches he played at the venue in the BPL, the speedster bagged 10 wickets at a rate of two per match and was the pick of the bowlers twice. With the form and conditions favouring the man in question, multiplying our investment over three times is inevitable for us.
