Pakistan were left frustrated that they couldn’t build on their superb win over England when their clash with Sri Lanka was rained off, while Australia will be looking to get back to winning ways after being outplayed by India. Form Labs bring you their betting preview and tips for the game while we bring you the value with our selection of enhanced odds available in our FanBoosts section.
Pivotal Clash In The Top-Four Race
With weather affecting more games than fans would like so far this tournament this game has become hugely pivotal in the race for the top-four.
Should Pakistan win this game they will leapfrog their opponents in the table and with it hold the honour of beating the two pre-tournament favourites.
Aussie Second String Bowlers Absent
Australia’s change bowlers were taken apart by India on Sunday. If teams can get through Cummins and Starc’s overs, and in fairness Starc looks far less threatening than Cummins, then there isn’t much to fear from the Aussies attack.
They possess an incredible array of batting talent with Finch, Warner and Smith at the top of the order but Khawaja looks out of sorts and, while brilliant at times, Maxwell is still far too inconsistent at this level.
There are, then, huge holes in a team that are fancied for success and defeat here could mean they don’t make the semis given they’ve got England and New Zealand still to play.
Pakistan have been typical Pakistan so far. Skittled for 105 in their first game against a poor West Indies attack they bounced-back to beat England defending a whopping 348 runs.
Australia v Pakistan Betting Tips
Upon closer inspection that win against England really was a freak, though. Going into the game, Pakistan had lost 11 ODIs on the bounce including a 5-0 defeat to Australia in their recent ODI Series.
Australia hold the advantage at the top of the order particularly so we’d keep them onside in both the Match Odds and the Highest Opening Partnership markets.
