World Cup 2021: Sixth in Group 1
Overview: Bangladesh should have done well in the UAE last year, but they struggled, losing five of five games in Group 1 and looking like a team in decline. Old hands Shakib Al Hasan and Mustafizur Rahman remain, but it’s difficult to see the rest of the team stepping up to bat in Australia given the types of pitches they’ll likely face and the fact that they’re in a strong group.
If SHAKIB AL HASAN does not perform well in ICC competitions, Bangladesh will struggle. That was the case in last year’s World Cup, when he failed to reach fifty with the bat and struggled at a strike rate of 109.16. Shakib managed 11 wickets with the ball, but it wasn’t enough to carry a bad team, and more will be needed this time.
Richard Mann’s pointer: Bangladesh’s batting appears particularly flimsy, as evidenced by their recent warm-up match against Afghanistan in Brisbane, where they only managed 98-9. Shorting runs or taking a flyer on the lower order in the top Bangladesh batsman market at big prices could be the way to go against some good bowling attacks.
OKBET’s outright odds are 10/3.
Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul, Virat Kohli, Suryakumar Yadav, Deepak Hooda, Rishabh Pant, Dinesh Karthik, Hardik Pandya, R Ashwin, Yuzvendra Chahal, Axar Patel, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Harshal Patel, Arshdeep Singh, Mohammad Shami are the squad members.
Rohit Sharma is the captain.
World Cup 2021: Third in Group 2
Overview: After last year’s disappointment in the UAE, India’s captaincy has been handed over to Rohit Sharma, who replaced Virat Kohli. With a change in captaincy comes a change in approach, with Sharma eager to imprint on the national team the same aggressive style that has served him so well at Mumbai Indians.
A summer series win over England was good preparation, but a disappointing run in the recent Asia Cup was not. Even without the injured Jasprit Bumrah, India expertly defended 187 against defending champions Australia on Monday, indicating that things are coming together nicely. As usual, the batting appears to be very strong.
‘SURYAKUMAR YADAV, remember the name!’ says the star. If I had to pick a favorite line from the commentary box for the next few weeks, that would be it. Yadav is already a household name among Indian fans, and those who watch a lot of IPL will be familiar with him.
Casual fans, on the other hand, will expect Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli to make headlines for India. Wrong. Nine fifties in 34 T20Is is impressive for a man who has spent the majority of his career batting in the middle order, and his century against England at Trent Bridge last summer was breathtaking.
Yadav has it all: power, placement, a 360-degree game, and a solid foundation of experience from his time with the Mumbai Indians in the IPL.
Richard Mann’s tip: While no one wants to play the same record twice, SURYAKUMAR YADAV is a must in the top India batsman market if he continues to score in the 11/2 range. Those valuations criminally undervalue Yadav while overvaluing the likely contributions of Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli. Yadav is a rising star with the potential to make a name for himself in Australia.
OKBET’s outright odds are 250/1.
Scott Edwards, Colin Ackermann, Shariz Ahmad, Logan van Beek, Tom Cooper, Brandon Glover, Timm van der Gugten, Fred Klaassen, Bas de Leede, Paul van Meekeren, Roelof van der Merwe, Stephan Myburgh, Teja Nidamanuru, Max O’Dowd, Tim Pringle, Vikram Singh are the players on the squad.

2021 World Cup: fourth in Group A in the first round
Overview: The Netherlands appear to be a far better team than the one that lost all three games in the first round of last year’s World Cup in the UAE. They had to work hard for qualification to the Super 12 stage, despite victories over UAE and Namibia, and things will get much tougher now. Nonetheless, players like Max O’Dowd and Bas de Leede have performed admirably at the plate, indicating that there is enough talent within their ranks to ensure they perform well from here on out.
OBKET’s outright odds are 8/1.
Babar Azam, Shadab Khan, Asif Ali, Fakhar Zaman, Haider Ali, Haris Rauf, Iftikhar Ahmed, Khushdil Shah, Mohammad Hasnain, Mohammad Nawaz, Mohammad Rizwan, Mohammad Wasim, Naseem Shah, Shaheen Shah Afridi, Shan Masood are the players in the squad.
Babar Azam is the captain.
Semi-finals of the 2021 World Cup
Overview: Pakistan appeared to be the tournament winners until Matthew Wade and the prevailing toss bias in Dubai ended an otherwise flawless campaign. Pakistan has struggled to maintain the same level of consistency and vigour since then, with an over-reliance on Babar Azam and Mohammad Rizwan at the top of the order becoming a major concern. Poor in the Asia Cup, they showed more promise against New Zealand recently, and Shaheen Afridi is back to bolster an already potent pace attack.
There are plenty of options here, but pace has always been an important factor in Australia, so HARIS RAUF could emerge as Pakistan’s main man. Rauf made his name for the Melbourne Stars in the Bash Bash, and he comes into the World Cup in great form, having played a strong series against England and then again against New Zealand.
MOHAMMAD RIZWAN’s last eight T20 cricket scores were 88, 63, 1, 78*, 4, 16, 69, and 34 at the time of writing. In the top Pakistan batsman market, Rizwan is the model of consistency and has generally been sent off at a higher price than opening partner Babar Azam. Rizwan is also worth a look in the top match batsmen market, given his proclivity for taking his time early and attempting to bat long.
South African Republic
OKBET Sports Betting’s outright odds are 7/1.
Temba Bavuma, Quinton de Kock, Heinrich Klaasen, Reeza Hendricks, Keshav Maharaj, Aiden Markram, David Miller, Lungi Ngidi, Anrich Nortje, Wayne Parnell, Kagiso Rabada, Rillee Rossouw, Tabraiz Shamsi, Tristan Stubbs, and Marco Jansen are the squad members.
Temba Bavuma is the captain.
World Cup 2021: Third in Group 1
Overview: South Africa may still be kicking themselves for missing out on the World Cup semi-finals on Net Run-Rate last year, with Australia the beneficiaries and eventually lifting the trophy. South Africa paid the price for a cautious approach when chasing down a small total against Bangladesh, but they have made efforts to turn over a new leaf in the last year, posting some high scores against India and England and making a real statement of intent by recalling dynamic top-order batsman Rillee Rossouw. The bowling is well suited to Australian conditions and offers a wide range of options. Rassie van der Dussen and Dwaine Pretorius’ injuries stand out as major setbacks.
AIDAN MARKRAM, the star of a very exciting batting lineup, could be the pick. Markram’s star in Test cricket has waned as his white-ball batting has flourished, despite his immense talent. Markram, a regular in the IPL, has reinvented himself as a destructive middle-order batsman, and his average in this format is approaching fifty in 2022, with a strike rate of 165.51. A strong man with a silky touch, the Australian pitches should suit Markram’s game perfectly, and he should have a big tournament.
Richard Mann’s tip: KAGISO RABADA is the man in South Africa, but this is his weakest format, with only five wickets in nine T20Is this year. He’ll still start as the favorite in the top South African tournament bowler market, where Anrich Nortje – who outbowled Rabada at the 2021 World Cup – and Lungi Ngidi offer better value on a match-by-match basis.
OKBET’s outright odds are 150/1.
Craig Ervine, Ryan Burl, Regis Chakabva, Tendai Chatara, Bradley Evans, Luke Jongwe, Clive Madande, Wessly Madhevere, Wellington Masakadza, Tony Munyonga, Blessing Muzarabani, Richard Ngarava, Sikandar Raza, Milton Shumba, Sean Williams are the players on the squad.
Craig Ervine is the captain.
World Cup in 2021: N/A
Overview: Zimbabwe kept their cool to secure Super 12 qualification with a convincing run chase against Scotland on Friday. Tendai Chatara once again impressed with another fine spell, and the bowers set up that victory. Sikandar Raza’s magical year continued with 40 from 23 balls, following his blistering 82 against Ireland earlier in the competition. Zimbabwe recently defeated Australia in an ODI, highlighting what a dangerous outfit they can be on a good day, and they could spring a surprise or two.
