World T20 Betfred Odds To Reach The FinalIndia (6/5), Australia and South Africa (2/1), England (11/4), Pakistan, New Zealand and West Indies (4/1), Sri Lanka (6/1), Bangladesh (16/1) You could argue that New Zealand might be the outsiders of the four seeded nations as they've lost Brendon McCullum. However, the stats don't back up claims that the Kiwis are a weaker side without their fast-scoring former skipper. In nine T20 matches played with McCullum since 2014, the Black Caps have won seven. Kane Williamson is the world's number one batsman and Martin Guptill's average was better than McCullum's. Australia never lack confidence going into any tournament and Steve Smith is an inspirational figure in all forms of cricket. Aaron Finch, Usman Khuwaja and David Warner are all powerful hitters at the top of the order but the sub-continent's slow pitches may just blunt the effectiveness of their pace attack. India, as hosts, will be under massive pressure and will need Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma to be at their very best to win the tournament. They may just fall short this time but their grudge match with Mohammad Hafiz' Pakistan should be a spectacle.
ICC World Twenty20 Winners Best OddsIndia (12/5), South Africa (11/2), Australia (6/1), England (7/1), New Zealand and West Indies (10/1), Pakistan (11/1), Sri Lanka (16/1), Bangladesh (50/1), Afghanistan and Zimbabwe (500/1), Ireland and the Netherlands (1000/1)
2016 ICC World Twenty20 Men's TournamentThere will initially be 16 teams competing in the ICC World T20. In the first round, the lowest-ranked ICC Full Members, Bangladesh and Zimbabwe, compete with six qualifiers (including Ireland and Scotland) for two spots in the group stages alongside the top eight Full Members in the Super 10 groups. There have been five ICC World T2os so far have so far and no team has won more than once. The inaugural event was staged in South Africa in 2007 and won by India. The 2009 tournament took place in England, and was won by the previous runners-up Pakistan. The third tournament was held in 2010 and staged in the West Indies. England beat Australia in the final, their only victory to date in a major international competitions. The West Indies beat hosts Sri Lanka in the final in 2012 but Sri Lanka went one better in Bangladesh in 2014 and became the first team to play in three finals in the process. This year's competition is again being staged in Asia with seven cities across India hosting matches. The final will be at Eden Gardens, Kolkata on April 3. Assumptions have to be made regarding the make-up of the Super 10s but betway have taken any doubts out of the equation by offering odds against the four possible qualifiers from the preliminary rounds in betting for Groups 1 and 2.
World T20 Group 1 betway oddsEngland and South Africa (2/1), West Indies (3/1), Sri Lanka (7/2), Afghanistan and Zimbabwe (100/1), Hong Kong and Scotland (1000/1) It's something of a surprise to see England vying for favouritism in this section. They did won 3-0 against Pakistan in the Middle East at the end of last year but were given a lesson in finishing by South Africa in their last two matches and have to face the Proteas again. Eoin Morgan's squad will also have to face the potentially destructive power of Chris Gayle and the West Indies, who are ranked third in the world, and though Sri Lanka are a team in transition, they are still captained by Lasith Malinga who has been a thorn in England's side too often to recall. Given England's overall record, that 2/1 quote by betway is looking too low. Both Afghanistan and Zimbabwe have the scope to cause them problems and they can't be any value. The Windies should be worth backing in this section if they can harness individual talent. Gayle features prominently in betting to be Top batsman at the ICC World T20s (14/1 with Paddy Power) but India's Rhit Sharma and Virat Kohli share current favouritism. England's Alex Hales, who has been in terrific form with the white ball lately, is 25/1 but I'd be more interested in the 20/1 about South Africa's Faf Du Plessis.
World T20 Top Batsman Paddy Power bettingRohit Sharma and Virat Kohli (9/1), AB De Villiers, David Warner and Usman Khawaja (10/1), Quinton De Kock, Chris Gayle and Shane Watson (14/1), Shikhar Dhawan, Martin Guptil, Kane Williamson and Stve Smith (16/1), Joe Root and Hashim Amla (18/1), Faf Du Plessis (20/1), Tillekeratne Dilshan (22/1), Alex Hales, Ahmed Shazad and Colin Munro (25/1)
It has just been getting worse and worse for England’s cricketers. They pretty much just handed over the Ashes back to the Australians with another poor performance. Defeat in Adelaide saw England fall to 3-0 in the series and with no batting confidence in their ranks, a 5-0 whitewash is really on the cards.
You can’t see the Australians sitting back now that they have earned the urn. They will have their tails up and will want to continue to put England to the sword. The hosts have been head and shoulder above the tourists in every department so far in the Ashes Series.
An Australia 5-0 whitewash is running at 7/4 favourite with online betting site Paddy Power. It Really doesn’t look a big stretch now. If there is anything left in the England reserve then you could take an Australia 40- victory at 5/2, or Australia 4-1 in the Ashes Series Correct Score betting market with Paddy Power.
The 4th Test will starting late on Christmas Day in the UK as England try and pull themselves together and avoid total annihilation. After crushing victories by margins of 381 in Brisbane and 218 in Adelaide, England slumped to a 150 in Perth to hand over the Ashes. One positive is that at least the margin of defeat has been getting smaller and smaller. However, the Australians have just been too ruthless.
Can England grab something in Melbourne for the 4th Test? Naturally the bookies have Alastair Cook’s men at long odds, 7/2 to get a victory in the next Test, while the Australians are at 8/11 to take the draw.Online betting site Paddy Power are running their Double Odds Special for the 4th and 5th Test. Back a winning Top Team Runscorer in any innings of the Third Test, and if the player scores a century, then Paddy Power will pay you out at DOUBLE your original odds.
Can England save any face in the third Test of the Ashes series? After getting blown out of the water in the first two Tests, largely being orchestrators of their own downfall with some woeful batting, the tourists are staring down the barrell of a potential whitewash in the series. They have yet to get any foothold in the series since the opening day of the first Test, a strong position which they simply threw away.
Now they will head to the unpredictable high bounce in Adelaide for the Third Test this week, hoping to redeem themselves. Coach AndY Flower has already said that there will be changes in the lineup as England look for a winning combination. While the Australians are running as strong 4/6 favourites to win the Third Test, you could look for bigger profit in the batsman markets.
Paddy Power are running a Double-Odds Special for the Third Test. Back a winning Top Team Run Scorer in any innings of the Third Test, and if the player scores a century, then the bookmaker will pay you out at DOUBLE your original odds.
Can England stage something of a comeback, led from the top by Alastair Cook? Or will it be the deadly bowling of Mitchell Johnson who blows the tourists away again in Adelaide, a ground where England have only won once before. Pride, at the very least, is up for grabs for England starting on Friday.
England will be rattling back into action with England v New Zealand T20 Cricket betting on June 25th. It a busy summer for the ICC Champions Trophy finalists, the Ashes series will be right around the corner and so all the practice that England can get will only help them out there. This is a two match series for England against the Black Caps, and naturally on home soil, England are firm favourites. Bear in mind though England were favourites to beat New Zealand in the One Day International series ahead of the ICC Champions Trophy and failed.
But the head to head record for England v New Zealand in the T20 former is heavily in favour of the hosts. England have won seven on the nine previous meetings including two of the three matches which they have already contested this year. Back in February the two nations contested T20 internationals and England won 2-1 on that occasion down in New Zealand. Given the advantages that England’s seamers can get on their home soil, many are fancying that this latest renewal between them will result in a whitewash.
In the England v New Zealand T20 Series Correct Score market, England are pretty decent value at 2/1 with online betting site Bet Victor to make a clean sweep 2-0. Trading as the favourite option in the market is a 1-1 draw at 4/5, but England really need to come out swinging ahead of the Ashes series and may play freely and loosely after some tense battles in the ICC Champions Trophy.
England are 2/1 favourites to win the Series outright, with New Zealand back at 4/1 with Bet Victor to get the job done. For the first of the two T20 matches, England again are edging things at a price of 4/5 to take the opening win. Having won seven of the last eight T20 encounters with New Zealand, there is a clear favouritism here.
