England vs India 2019 ICC Cricket World Cup Betting Tip

England vs IndiaThe 2019 ICC Cricket World Cup has been criticised in some quarters for not producing enough drama.  However, that has changed as we approach the end of the group stage and we have a fantastic match to enjoy between England and India at Edgbaston Cricket Ground on Sunday 30th June.

By the time this match begins, England could be sitting outside the top four and the pressure will be on the hosts.  They need to win this game to keep their future in the tournament in their own hands.  India are currently second place and have a game in hand over their nearest rivals.  A win here would secure their place in the semi-final.

The Favourite

India have been excellent at the 2019 Cricket World Cup, winning each of their five completed games.  The only match in which they failed to pick up maximum points was the abandoned one against New Zealand due to poor weather.

Following the rained off game against the Black Caps, India defeated Pakistan comfortably and faced a surprising test from Afghanistan, which they won by 11 runs.  There were no such difficulties in their most recent match however, as India thrashed the West Indies to win by 125 runs.

India are coming into this key game as the in-form team and are the slight favourites to win with the bookmakers, priced at 4/5 with Ladbrokes.

The Outsider

England were hoping to have their place in the semi-final sealed by the time this fixture was to be played but that’s not the case.  The hosts have lost their way recently and have suffered defeat in three of their seven games.

They have lost each of their last two matches, with the defeat against Australia disappointing but not a shock.  However, the same cannot be said for the loss against Sri Lanka in a game England were the heavy favourites to win.

You must go back to the win over Afghanistan on the 18th June to find the last time England tasted success.  England are the outsiders for this game at Evens with Betfair.

Other England vs India 2019 ICC Cricket World Cup Betting Tip

Virat Kohli is ranked the number one ODI batsman in the world and it has been easy to see why in recent matches.  Kohli has scored four half-centuries in succession, with innings of 82, 77, 67 and 72 runs to his name.  He is averaging 59.67 in One Day International cricket and must be stopped if England are going to win.

Kohli is 9/2 with Betfair to be the top batsman in this game.

Payout Ratio

Jofra Archer has 16 wickets to his name at the 2019 Cricket World Cup and his raw pace could cause problems for the India top order.  There was a lot of controversy over the selection of Archer but he has performed well and can be backed at 5/2 with William Hill to be England’s top bowler in this game.
