Cricket Betting Tips and Match Prediction*
Who will win the 1St ODI? England – England are in good ODI form after a whitewash series against Australia. They will also be looking to put the T20I series defeat behind them.
Who will win the ODI Series? England 3-2 – it’s going to be a tight series again and I think that the toss will play an important role – India and England both like chasing rather than posting scores, so look at who wins the toss and that could well determine the result of the game.
Top Batsman (Runs Scored) – Jos Buttler (England), Virat Kohli (India)
Top Bowler (Wickets taken) – Moeen Ali (England), Kuldeep Yadav (India)
Most Sixes – Jos Buttler (England), MS Dhoni (India)
Team Scores Batting First – England 350+, India 320+
