In his most recent World Cup preview, Richard Mann predicted two victories at odds of 7/1 and 7/2. He now offers two further bets for Tuesday morning’s match between England and Bangladesh.
England will face Bangladesh in Dharamsala on Tuesday at 6:00 a.m. UK time under pressure after being humiliated by New Zealand by nine wickets in their World Cup debut.
In contrast, Bangladesh will be encouraged by their convincing victory over Afghanistan in their campaign opener on this same field, and they will be hoping that the playing surface on Tuesday will produce as much spin as it did last week.
England may prove to be too powerful.
Spinning circumstances may be considered a leveler, but even so, I anticipate England to show their superiority and resume their title defense in this game.
Low anticipation for a potential shock leads to a bet on the side markets.
I wouldn’t be shocked if Moeen Ali played a significant role for England with the ball and I could easily see him bowling in the first powerplay since Bangladesh’s top six is so loaded with left-handers.
Moeen’s batting has been inconsistent for a long, but he could surely complete several overs, making him a candidate for the Man of the Match market.
Overall, I like to limit my wagers to a few in the Bangladeshi markets.
Taskin wanted to be the best bowler
I wish to support TASKIN AHMED, who has been leading the bowling assault for some time, in the top Bangladesh bowler market.
The powerful fast bowler had a successful 2023, taking 23 wickets in 11 innings with an average of 17.54. His remarkable 24.10 strike rate throughout that time puts him in extremely good company.
Taskin checks off a lot of boxes. He is dangerous with the new ball and highly efficient at the death, and considering that England has so many strong spinners in their lineup, I would anticipate that the wholehearted seamer will pose the most threat.
Shanto will continue the Golden Run
NAJMUL SHANTO was highly highlighted in my specialties preview here, but if credentials seem solid enough, bettors shouldn’t be discouraged from placing a wager on a certain match.
They most certainly do in Shanto’s situation, and I’m eager to wager on him at 4/1 in the top Bangladesh batting market.
Shanto only played in two games in the previous Asia Cup due to a torn hamstring, but before going down, he scored 89 and 104, after coming back, he finished with 76 against New Zealand and 59 not out in the victory over Afghanistan.
He has experience playing against England, too, having scored a couple of fifties in a home ODI series against them earlier this year. In my opinion, he is the consummate professional in this sector.
