India vs England Betting Tips

Teams Status

After winning the first ODI, India lost their way in the second match as they lost the match by six wickets with as many as 39 balls remaining. Similar to the first ODI, India were put to bat and they put up 336 runs on the board for the loss of six wickets courtesy of a magnificent century from KL Rahul. Even the skipper Virat Kohli, Rishabh Pant and Hardik Pandya chipped in with some cameos. India bettered themselves with the bat as they scored 20 more runs from the first ODI. But their bowling was worst than the previous ODI as they conceded these runs with over six overs to spare. Prasidh Krishna was the pick of the bowlers with two wickets and also was the most economical bowler. KL Rahul is the team’s leading run-scorer with 180 runs in two matches at an average of 180. Virat Kohli is in the second spot with 122 runs. Prasidh Krishna is the team’s leading wicket-taker with as many as six wickets. Bhuvi and Shardul are tied in second place with three wickets each. India is most likely to make some changes in the spin department as it was ineffective in the second ODI.

England bounced back really well after losing cheaply in the first ODI by as many as 66 runs. They started off brilliantly while chasing a massive total of 337 courtesy of an opening partnership of 110 runs stitched by Jason Roy and Jonny Bairstow in just 16 overs. Unlike the first ODI, they did not lose their way after the fall of the first wicket. Then Jonny Bairstow along with Ben Stokes took the run chase to another level as they added 175 runs for the second wicket in just 117 balls. Despite England losing three quick wickets in just two overs, Liam Livingston and Dawid Malan steered them home with 39 balls left. Jonny Bairstow is the leading run-scorer in the series with 218 runs at an average of 109.00. Jason Roy and Ben Stokes also have crossed the 100 run mark in this series. England have managed to pick up 11 wickets in the series so far courtesy of some good bowling spells from Stokes, Reece Topley and Mark Wood. England are more likely to stick with the winning combination if Eoin Morgan isn’t fit for the next match.

Tipster’s Angel

It all narrows down to the tiebreaker in Pune as two of the world cricketing heavyweights go head to head. England has momentum on their side and also the head to head record is tending towards them as they have won four of the last five matches.

Tip: England Fall of 1st Wicket – Over 34.5 @ 1.83

Jason Roy and Jonny Bairstow have been in exceptional form at the top of the order for England since they have started to open the innings. In the current series, these two have stitched an opening partnership of 245 runs in just two matches at an average of 122.50. In the first match, they added 135 runs for the opening stand in just 14 overs and then backed it up with a watchful 110 runs in the second ODI. Jason Roy averages 40.26 in the 95 matches that he has played for England. Also, in India, his average climbs up to 64.20. Jonny Bairstow on the other hand averages 48.92 in the 85 matches that he has played. He averages 46.14 in India in the eight matches that he has played here. By considering these stats, England are more likely to put up more than 34.5 runs for the opening stand at 1.83 odds available at the Betway sportsbook.

Tip: Virat Kohli Total Runs Over 46.5 @ 1.83

Virat Kohli crossed the 10000 run mark while batting at number three for India and became just the second batsman to do so. He batted exceptionally well in this series as he was the leading run-scorer in the T20 series and he backed that with two good performances in the first two ODI’s. He has scored 122 runs in the current series at an average of 61.00. Also, he has crossed the 46 run mark in both matches. He has scored 12162 runs at an average of 59.32 in the 253 ODI matches that he has played. He has scored 63 half-centuries and 43 centuries in his career. He has played 32 matches against England and has scored 1300 at an average of over 46. His average when he plates in India is 60.81. So it is more likely that Virat Kohli will score over 46.5 runs in the third ODI as well at 1.83 odds available at the Betway sportsbook.


England had rectified their errors from the first match and bounced back into the series to level it 1-1. They would want to take all the momentum from the second ODI into the third ODI. India on the other hand will look to take advantage of the home conditions and seal the series. A cracker of a contest is expected in the decider.
