SA vs PAK 1st T20I Match Predictions and Betting Tips

South Africa and Pakistan will commence the first of the 4-series T20I tournament. The match is due to be held at The Wanderers Stadium in Johannesburg, on Saturday, April 10. Here are the top SA vs PAK betting tips ahead of the weekend.

Pakistan won the deciding one-day international against South Africa and took the deciding series 2-1 on Wednesday. South Africa was 292 all out. Even after three players made half-centuries. Fakhar Zaman hit his second consecutive century and captain Babar Azam 94 from 82 balls played. Pakistan were at 320-7 batting first at SuperSport Park. It is the first time Pakistan has won a ODI series against South Africa since 2013.

The last time South Africa toured Pakistan was in February 2021 to play the three match T20I series. Pakistan won two of the three matches back then. The Men In Green also won the two test series played prior to it. Looking at the past head-to-head encounters, Pakistan and South Africa have faced each other in 17 T20I matches earlier. South Africa have defeated Pakistan in nine matches out of them. With the teams gearing up for the new season, I have assorted the top betting tips from the SA vs PAK match lined ahead.

SA vs PAK Player Bets

The oddsmakers have offered very high odds for the players market and I have picked the easiest of the lot to make easy money. Here are listed below top two betting tips from SA vs PAK 1st T20I.

Babar Azam To Be Top Team Batsman For Pakistan

Starting off with skipper Babar Azam who led green shirts to a historic win against South Africa in the ODI series played this season. Under Babar Azam, Pakistan has also won the Test and T20I earlier in February as well. He became the fifth Pakistan captain to start their test captaincy stint with a series win earlier. Babar Azam has featured in 47 T20I matches and averages 48.05 from it with 1681 runs which includes 16 half centuries. Babar Azam has played 6 innings against South Africa and has an average of 33.33 against them. Not to mention, he holds a decently good average of playing away matches as well.

He has played 17 away innings and racked 669 runs to his name at an average of 47.78. In the 2020 season he played 32 T20 matches and hammered 1242 runs at 56.45. As a captain, Babar Azam has taken part in 14 matches and averages 44.00 from it. In the ongoing season, Azam has already played five T20I matches and is currently at an average of 36.40. There is no doubt that the captain is on a roll this season. Bet365.com has offered betting odds of 3.50 for Babar Azam to score over 3.50 runs against South Africa.Bet On Top Team Batsman For Pakistan !Claim 100% Joining Bonus!

Janneman Malan To Be The Top Team Batsman For South Africa

Although it has been a very short tenure that this player has ventured into the international T20I scene, he seems to be soaring runs for his team. Janneman made his debut for the South African cricket team in 2019. He played his first Twenty20 International against Pakistan at the debut of his career. He has played 44 domestic T20s and currently completed five T20I matches. In the T20I match played between Pakistan and South Africa in February, Janneman opened for the South African squad.

Malan opened the series with 44 runs from 29 balls played which included 8 boundaries. The right-handed batsman was consistent with his batting form throughout the series. He has opened three matches as an opening batsman and averages 25.00 from it. Considerably Janneman Malan is the next big thing in South African cricket and there is no doubt he will be playing as per the required target. Bet365.com has offered betting odds of 3.75 for Janneman Malan to be the top team batsman for South Africa. Bet On Top Team Batsman For South Africa !Claim 100% Joining Bonus!

SA vs PAK Team Bets

The odds run in favour of Pakistan winning the upcoming match. While Pakistan is in the best of their form this season, the odds are more likely in favour of the visitor. But I have picked one safe bet to earn money from the SA vs PAK team bets.

South Africa To Hit Most Match 4’s

The last bet is in favour of the host. Looking at the past records of Pakistan and South Africa playing their first T20I this year, even though Pakistan took over the tournament. South Africa excelled in one field. They managed to hit more smaller boundaries than the Men in Green. South Africa managed to pull off 50 fours in the three innings that they played. This averaged to 16.66 fours per match.

While Pakistan played the same number of matches and accumulated only 37 fours which averaged to 12.33 four per match. Janneman Malan alone pitched in 12 fours in the 3 innings played which averaged to 4 six per match. This was followed by Reeza Hendricks at 11 fours. South Africa has power hitters like David Miller who has 101 fours from 69 T20I innings played. Bet365.com is offering betting odds of 2.00 for South Africa to hit most match fours in the SA vs PAK head-to-head match.Double Your Money From This Bet!Claim 100% Joining Bonus!
