India will face a stern challenge at Edgbaston on Friday, July 9 as they face England in the second T20I of the three match long T20I series. I have picked the best team and player bets for the ENG vs IND match predictions for you to choose from. Let us have a look at them.
India will be pumped up heading into this contest, having registered a superb 50-run victory in the opening game. Hardik Pandya was the hero for the Indian side as he scored an impactful half-century and followed it up with a match-winning four-wicket haul. India has a great mix of bowlers and batters in the squad with Kohli, Pant and Bumrah available for the next game. England will have a tough time playing against the aggressive line-up, after their batting line-up failed miserably in the 1st match. I have brought you the best betting tips in the market and you should take a look at the best betting tips for the ENG vs IND match predictions.
Let’s have a look at the ENG vs IND team bets.
Reeling back to the first ever T20I competition between England and India took place in 2007 ICC T20 World Cup at Durban. The eventual champions won the match by 8 runs. The match is well known for Yuvraj hitting six sixes in a single over off Stuart Broad. In the last T20I series between the sides, India clinched the Paytm T20 Series Trophy between India and England on 20th March 2021 winning the series by 3-2. India has played 20 T20Is against England where they won 55% of the time, with 11 wins. This weighs majorly in favour of this betting tip, making it a safe pick from the ENG vs IND match prediction. In the first T20I of the ongoing series, a 50-run defeat saw ENG crumble to defeat for the first time at the venue. The young Indian team were fierce in the 1st T20I of the series. Hardik Pandya has been in red-hot form since the IPL and continued that with a superb display on Thursday, having scored 51 runs he followed that with four wickets. With an impressive line-up of players in the squad, IND will go in as match favourites and with 1XBET offering the odds of 1.90 for the same, it is a great pick to earn some money ahead of the weekend.
Two of the cricket superpowers will yet again collide in the second game of the 20 over format. After an intense competition of the world famous IPL 2022, the players have come well seasoned and well accustomed to this short format. One of the biggest boundary accumulators were from both sides, including big names like Jos Buttler who won the Orange Cap and amassed 83 boundaries. Pandya is not behind and has smashed 49 fours in the tournament. The same followed up in the current T20I series where Pandya scored 51 runs in the game with 6 fours in the match. India and England collectively struck 36 fours in the game, ranging higher than our betting tip. The two sides met in a five match long T20I series in 2021 where we witnessed 21, 27, 26, 36 and 32 boundaries in five games respectively. A lot has evolved since then, including the batters in the squads who are expected to come through in the ongoing series. With names like Pandya, Buttler, Kishan, Iyer, Livingstone, etc in the mix, the match is expected to experience more boundaries than our desired target. 1XBET offers the odds of 1.785 for the same and it looks like a huge money making betting tip from the ENG vs IND match prediction.
I have Rohit Sharma to score low in the ENG vs IND head-to-head contest.
The Indian captain holds a lot of experience but has proven to be a hindrance to the squad in recent times. Sharma has played 118 T20Is innings where he amassed 3337 runs with an average of 32.39. This seems like a good average but wait until you hear more. He is coming off a disastrous campaign in the IPL 2022 where he scored 268 runs in 14 matches with an average of 19.14. He led his team to the bottom of the points table that totally tarnished the image of the five time title winners. From averaging at 38.54 in 2021 to 20.00 in 2022, Sharma’s performance has simmered down to low scoring totals. He played two series against West Indies and Sri Lanka and posted the scores of 40, 19 & 7 and 44, 1 & 5 runs in the two series. Moreover, he returned to the stands in the 1st T20I of the ongoing series after scoring 24 runs in the match. Rohit Sharma averages 37.88 playing against England but his prime batting days have faded away. He scored 15, 12 and 64 runs in the series against England in 2021. All facts considered, Rohit Sharma is expected to strike out early in the second ENG vs IND T20I match. 1XBET offers the odds of 1.85 for Sharma to score under 27.5 runs and it is a great betting tip for earning a huge payday.
