South Africa vs Pakistan Betting Tips – 07/04/2021

Teams Status

South Africa bounced back really well after losing the first ODI. They lost the first ODI by three wickets as Pakistan chased the target of 273 in the last ball of their innings. Despite losing the toss, South Africa put up a massive total of 341 on the board courtesy of four half-centuries from Quinton De Kock, Temba Bavuma, Rassie van der Dussen and David Miller. Also, there were a couple of century partnerships between Quinton & Bavuma, Rassie & Bavuma. The skipper Bavuma was the team’s leading run-scorer in the match as he added 92 runs off just 104 balls. Anrich Nortje was exceptional with the ball as he picked up three wickets for just 63 runs. Rassie van der Dussen is the leading run-scorer for South Africa in the series with 183 runs at an average of 183.00 including the highest score of 123*. Even Quinton and Miller chipped in with 100 runs each. Anrich Nortje was the pick of the bowlers for South Africa with seven wickets to his name in just two matches and was instrumental in South Africa winning the second ODI. South Africa is very likely to make some changes to the playing XI.

Pakistan slightly faded away with their bowling in the second ODI as they conceded around 70 more runs than the first ODI. Haris Rauf did reasonably well when compared to other bowlers as he picked up three wickets and was very economical as well. Shaheen Afridi, Mohammad Hasnain and Faheem Ashraf chipped in with one wicket each. They didn’t get a good start while chasing that mammoth total of 342 as they lost Imam-ul-Haq very early for just five runs. No other player apart from Fakhar Zaman made any valuable contribution. Zaman’s brilliant 193 went in vain as they lost the match by just 17 runs. Zaman is the leading run-scorer in the series as he scored 201 runs in just two matches at an average of 100.50. Their skipper Babar Azam also chipped in with 134 runs at an average of 67.00. In the bowling department, Haris Rauf is the team’s leading wicket-taker with five wickets to his name. Shaheen is the second-highest wicket-taker with three wickets. Despite losing the second match, Pakistan are likely to stick to the same combination.

Tipster’s Angel

Tip: Any Player To Score A 100  – Yes @ 1.60

In the current series, three centuries were scored so far in just two matches. Rassie van der Dussen, Babar Azam and Fakhar Zaman were the three players to score a century so far. In the last series that these two teams have played, was pretty ordinary as only two centuries were scored. But most of those matches were rain-affected. The South Africans were exceptional in the Australian series, as three centuries were scored in that series of three matches. Heinrich Klaasen and Janneman Malan scored centuries for South Africa in the series against Australia.  In the last series that Pakistan had played against Zimbabwe, three centuries were scored there as well in just three matches. Babar Azam was the sole century scorer for Pakistan. With certain players leaving for IPL duties, South Africa still has the likes of Rassie van der Dussen, Janneman Malan, Babar Azam, Fakhar Zaman, we can expect at least one century. So, it is very likely that any player will score a century at 1.60 odds available at the Betway sportsbook.

Tip: Rassie van der Dussen Total Runs Over 33.5 @ 1.83

Rassie van der Dussen has played just 23 ODI matches for South Africa so far and has scored 890 runs at a massive average of 80.90. He has hit eight half centuries and one century including the highest score of 123* against Pakistan in the first ODI of this series. He has scored 321 runs in his last five innings at an average of 107.00. Also he had crossed the 33 run mark in four of the last five innings. Out of the 18 innings that he has played, he has crossed the 33 run mark in 12 of those innings. He has played eight matches against Pakistan and has scored 460 runs at an average of 115.00 and has crossed the 33 run mark in all but one innings. So, it is very likely that Rassie van der Dussen will score more than 33.5 runs at 1.83 odds available at the Betway sportsbook.

Conclusion

Both the teams have a really good chance to seal the series as the series is tied at one apiece. But South Africa will be without their five superstars. So, it wont be a surprise if Pakistan take the series.
