Team India's last outing in Bangladesh is indeed an experience they would not want to cherish. It is hoped that the Blue Caps will take a lesson from the series that they expected to be a cakewalk but, ended up in a loss. For the tournament that begins tomorrow in Zimbabwe, only speculations can be made. And for now, all the predictions are hinting at visitors emerging as clear winners. And, the text that follows highlights why team India is still a favorite after having performed poorly in the recently concluded innings.
The selectors have rested big names of Indian cricket ahead of the busy season and given captaincy to Rahane who himself has struggled to perform well in the ODI format. This can be a big boost for team Zimbabwe. Moreover, team Zimbabwe is no more underdog and they did prove it in the World Cup where had things been a little differently then it would have been a shocking win for Blue Caps who have the habit of taking the other side too lightly. On the other hand, it is for now foreseen that the Africans rank nine places below India and are not skilled enough to outplay India in the very first match.
Although the majority of bookmakers are predicting odds in favor of India but, here we cast a glance at the India vs Bangladesh 1st ODI betting odds, tips and predictions.
The team will be lead by Rahane and wicket-keeping will be done by Robin Uthappa. This may not be India’s best side however, it is a good opportunity for the players to prove their cricketing skills. The players to watch out from team India would be Murli Vijay, off-spinner Harbhajan Singh and Uthappa himself. So far, team India has won the majority of matches against Zimbabwe and this is going to be a big morale booster for the side. Axar Patel is another key player to look up to. This is the first time Rahul Dravid will lead India A side as coach. So, a lot of factors are involved
The fact that the team India is playing majority of its fringe players is a big boost for hosts. Although absence of Taylor is a big void that needs to be filled in consistently but, then hosts sill give it their best short to surprise the guests.
There is not much to speculate in the series for now. Team India know the ins and outs of the game very well, so it’s not easy beating them at this stage. If weather does not intervene, it is expected to be an altogether win-win situation for the pros. See here, the betting odds as suggested by the famous bookmakers.
Zimbabwe 4.1, India 1.32
Result: Place your bets on team India for higher chances of winning.
