Sunday’s second Super 12 T20 World Cup match sees India take on Pakistan in Melbourne and this should be an absolutely cracking encounter.
Heading into this Tournament India were priced as 7/2 for the win with Pakistan 10/1 and the Outright Betting for the game reflects the fact that India are the more fancied side.
Games against Pakistan, their great rivals are always exciting though and there are plenty of different markets for punters to get involved in.
India won a recent home T20 series 2-1 against South Africa and they looked in good nick in their only warm-up match, been a 6 run victory over Australia in a high scoring match. The other proposed warm-up game against New Zealand was abandoned without a ball been bowled.
Pakistan have won 2 of their last 3 T20 Internationals, their most recent game been a 6 wicket defeat by England in a warm-up match. They were due to play Afghanistan last Wednesday, but unfortunately that game ended up as a no result with Pakistan on 19 for zero in the third over chasing a 155 for victory.
These sides have met each other 11 times in the T20 format with India holding the dominant record with 8 wins and Pakistan winning on 3 occasions.

Suggested Bet: India Top Batter, Virat Kohli at 22/10
I am not going to get involved in the match market here although I do have a long term interest in India to win the Tournament. Kohli has taken quite a lot of criticism in the longer form of the game, but he continues to deliver in T20 and I think he is going to step up on the big stage here.
Suggested Bet: Batsman, Match Bet Most Runs, Azam over Rizwan at 12/10
Although there is a risk that he won’t have as much time at the crease I think Azam, like Kohli, will show his class here with a big performance.
Remember there are plenty of different markets including Team to hit the most 6’s, to get the most runouts and even over by over betting, if that is not enough for you once the game has started in-running betting options are also available.
