Cricket Betting Tips for 1st T20 game: England vs West indies
The first game of the bilateral one day series will start in Antigua on 3rd March as Eoin Morgan’s England side will face off against hosts Westindies.
England looks in good shape for the series as a lot of players have got game time under their belt with a chunk of them taking part in the ongoing Pakistan Super League held in UAE.Morgan has been in scintillating form with the bat for the side while Jason Roy has just gone a notch above as player at the top of the order. Roy is a pick to score 50 plus runs for England as he has been consistent with scoring fifties as suggested by his form in the last one year. Joe Root will be also be keen to start the series with some runs under his belt. Alex Hales might probably sit on the sidelines in order for him to recover from injury that kept him out for three months. Sam Billings has been decent with the bat at the top of the order and looks a good player of spin.
Westindies are playing at home as they will be keen to improve their showing in the format after a poor last season. Their last series was against Pakistan which the visitors lost 3-0 as batting looked out of sorts and struggled for runs. Marlon Samuels has been axed from the squad as poor performance led him to be ruled out of the squad.
The promising young players like Evin Lewis, Shane Dowrich and Kraigg Brathwaite need to stand and make the most of their opportunity for West Indies. Lewis has been touted as the next big thing as he smashed a ton in his short t20 career against India at Lauderhill and will be keen to impress cricket pundits with a big one. Evin Lewis is tipped to score 50 plus in this game.
The odd are against West Indies due to recent form as they did came out the against England in 2007 under Chris Gayle. England will be keen to win the series but West Indies came spring a surprise.
