Cricket punters love to bet on all sorts of different aspects of the game and ICC cricket series. Cricket-betting odds are still being calculated for many of these markets, but we at Jet10 Casino still have some online cricket betting tips for the top batsman and bowler.
Pakistan’s Babar Azam may end up with the most valuable cricket betting odds for the highest run-scorer. Indian and English batsmen are likely to receive the lowest odds considering their current rankings, but Azam has been in phenomenal form as of late and recently became the fast batsman to 2,000 T20I runs.
There has been a lot of buzz around the Afghan leg spinner and former Afghanistan captain, Rashid Khan. Named ICC T20I cricketer of the decade in 202, Khan has a series of bowling accolades and is arguably one of the deadliest IPL bowlers in the league. If Afghanistan can make it to the semi-finals, Khan has great cricket betting odds of taking the most wickets in the ICC World Cup T20 tournament.
