Cricket Betting Prediction

Hands up at the back if you saw Scotland beating the West Indies on Monday? It’s been a Twenty20 World Cup brimming with surprises so far, and we’re attempting to navigate the minefield in our West Indies vs Zimbabwe betting tips ahead of the crucial, tournament-defining clash for the Caribbean outfit. 

It would be a phenomenal upset to see the T20 World Cup’s most successful side exit before the Super 12s - but they’re not out yet. Victory here for the West Indies would keep them in with a shout of qualifying. The action gets underway from 1.30 pm IST on Wednesday 19th October at the Blundstone Arena in Hobart. 

Check out our full match preview below - we examine the live cricket satta rates, key match stats, and much more!

West Indies vs Zimbabwe Betting Tips

The defeat to Scotland ranks among the most embarrassing in the West Indies’ history. The result was bad enough, but the performance was even worse! Still, our West Indies vs Zimbabwe betting tips are favouring a result for the former. 

They have the stronger side on paper, and despite the danger The Chevrons pose, the West Indies can claim a victory that would keep them in the hunt for Super 12s qualification. 

You can bet on the West Indies to win at a rather appealing 1.36, while Zimbabwe are available to back at 3.1.

We can recommend Nicolas Pooran to top score for the West Indies at 5.6. In the absence of big hitters Chris Gayle, Kieron Pollard, and Andre Russell, Pooran is the biggest star of the West Indies batting line-up and he has the stats to back it up. He has hit 1407 T20I runs in his career - averaging a solid 26.05 and at a strike rate of 129.55. He looks like a sensible bet. 

This result is far from a foregone conclusion, however, and one of the chief reasons for that is the form of Sikandar Raza. The all-rounder was in sensational form in the victory over Ireland, hitting 82 runs from 48 balls and taking 1/22 from three overs in a man of the match performance. He is our bet to top score for the Chevrons once more at odds of 4.2.

Conclusion

This one can go to the West Indies - the competition’s most successful side are likely top have too much for the in-form Zimbabwe.
