Cricket Betting: Australia vs West Indies vs South Africa ODI Series

June 3, 2016 by Posted in Cricket Tips

Australia in West Indies Tri-Nation SeriesT20 cricket was the flavor of the season so far but things are set to change when the West Indies host one-day world champions Australia, as well as South Africa from June 3 – 26. The tournament comprises 10 matches between the three nations with the top two sides progressing to the final. The first three matches will be played in Guyana before the action heads to St. Kitts for the next three. The series ends with four matches in Barbados including the final.

Australia come into the tournament after a brief hiatus in the 50-over format. Their last outing was in February when they lost to New Zealand. But the return of Mitchell Starc should be a welcome boost for the Aussies. David Warner comes fresh from an outstanding IPL and with pitches familiar to those in India, he should relish the challenge. The series also offers a chance for players like Adam Zampa, Mitchell Marsh and Glenn Maxwell to cement their spots. Australia are favourites to lift the title at odds of $1.91 at William Hill.

South Africa also played their last ODI in February when they won against England at home. Quinton de Kock’s form at the top is crucial if they are to maximize the presence of AB De Villiers who is also fresh from a sparkling IPL series. Chris Morris gives stability to the South Africans who boast of the exciting left-arm chinaman bowler Tabraiz Shamsi. With Imran Tahir in the squad too, the slow pitches in the Caribbean may just suit the Proteas this time. At odds of $2.50 at William Hill to lift the trophy, there is value on Proteas.

The West Indies are high on confidence after lifting the World Twenty20 championship but their 50-over form has been very patchy. The return of Sunil Narine should give them an edge with the ball, especially since the mystery bowler has found his rhythm after remodeling his action. Kieron Pollard and Carlos Brathwaite give their middle order a scary look with their big hitting abilities. But, can the Windies carry their 20-over form to ODI’s? It would be a surprise if they land the title, but they are certainly capable at odds of $6.00 at William Hill.

Warner looks good to carry his IPL form to the Caribbean. Back him at odds of $3.25 at Ladbrokes to end up being Australian top batsman. For the Proteas, it could be the runs by De Kock at the top that could prove the difference. Back him at odds of $4.00 at Ladbrokes to end up as best batsman for South Africa. For the hosts, Marlon Samuels is key with the bat. Back him at odds of $3.50 at Ladbrokes to be their best batsman.
