Pakistan vs Australia, 2nd Semi-Final Betting Tips 11/11/2021

Teams Status

Pakistan

Pakistan were the most highflying team through the group stages and won all of their five matches, with a different player taking the center stage on each occasion and delivering something special to go with the usual, consistence and nonchalant brilliance of their captain Babar Azam.

This team has shown that it can find batting heroes elsewhere, on day Babar and his partner in crime, Mohammad Rizwan, do suffer a rare bad day at the office.

The Green Shirts have been full of confidence in every game but should be a little worried about the prospect of Australia – a side they have never beaten in the knockout stages of any form of the world cup.

Since 1975, the Kangaroos and the Men in Green have clashed a number of times in elimination games and each time the side from Down Under came out on top.

Pakistan supporters can give the argument that the same was said about India and look how they were beaten in their tournament opener. That, and the fact that this Australian side is perhaps the weakest they’ve ever faced should give them comfort.

Australia

Australia were lucky to sneak into the semis as South Africa, too, had the same number of victories and points (four and eight respectively), but their better net run rate got them through.

The star of their campaign has been Adam Zampa, who claimed a five-for against Bangladesh and retired the notion that Aussie spinners cannot win matches against Asian sides in the UAE. Josh Hazlewood has had some joy as well.

David Warner, whose horrible IPL had fuelled talks that he may not have anything left in the tank anymore, has also found some runs and currently sits at number eight position in the tournament’s scoring chart.

In their last game, Australia defeated the West Indies convincingly. Warner’s unbeaten 89 was the highlight of the day, although Hazlewood’s four-for also deserves a mention.

Tipster’s Angle

Tip: Pakistan to win @ 1.83

Pakistan have a psychological barrier when facing Australia in knockout games. But psychological aspect aside, pound for pound, they are a better side than the Aussies. Aaron Finch’s men do have a few match-winners and game-changers among them, but as a collective unit, Pakistan appear a more settled and talented side. Besides, backing Pakistan has paid off for us throughout the campaign so why fix what ain’t broke? The odds have been sourced from Betway.

Tip: Fakhar Zaman to score more than 18.5 runs @ 1.832

Fakhar Zaman has so far been the weakest link in the Pakistan line-up during their run to the semi-finals. But in Australia, he faces a side he’s done better in this format against. Furthermore, Australia have Zampa but their bowling attack is not spin-oriented. It still relies heavily on pace than spin, which plays into the hands of Zaman. His average of 28.14 against Australia is also not too shabby so we like this play. The odds have been sourced from 22Bet.

Conclusion

To be honest, this play can go either way so play wisely and only bet what you can afford to lose. Australia are very much capable of winning this, and so are Pakistan. We lean towards the Men in Green, though.
