Pakistan Vs Australia 1st ODI Preview and Betting Tips

Australia

The Australian team would be looking to carry on its form from the ODIs in India where they romped away with a series win.

The team looks to be in top form right now. Finch is finally having some semblance of confidence in his batting. Khwaja was in prolific form and in Maxwell, Stoinis and Turner they’ve got a bunch of finishers in there who are performing reliably.

They would be looking to make a statement before the World Cup and a depleted Pakistani Unit could be perfect prey.

The player under the spotlight

Shaun Marsh has been in superb form in ODIs scoring Hundreds against India and South Africa in Australia and even against England in England. He was not in his element in India and would be looking to make amends against Pakistan

Probable XI: Aaron Finch (c), Usman Khawaja, Glenn Maxwell, Nathan Lyon, Pat Cummins, Peter Handscomb, Ashton Turner, Adam Zampa, Marcus Stoinis, Alex Carey (wk), Jhye Richardson

Pakistan

Shoaib Malik would have a huge challenge on his hands as he’s been handed a pretty deal with many of the important players rested. He would be going in with a squad having 4 uncapped players and would be giving them chances against an Aussie team in red-hot form.

Although it brings a sense of unpredictability to the squad, it does seem that the inexperience of this unit will eventually speak.

It has to be the captain. Not only will he have to martial his troops he’ll also have to all his years of experience to put up a fight against this team.

Probable XI: Shoaib Malik (c), Faheem Ashraf, Imam-ul-Haq, Junaid Khan, Mohammad Rizwan (wk), Saad Ali, Shan Masood, Umar Akmal, Usman Shinwari, Yasir Shah

Pakistan Vs Australia 1st ODI Betting Tips

Australians are the runaway favorites here. The Pakistan unit is just too depleted. We could expect a score of around 260 by the Aussies if they bat first. For Pakistan, a good batting effort may be able to take them to a total of around 240.

Total Runs: Under 500.5 @ 1.83 at Pinnacle Sports
