T20  WORLD  CUP

MARKET  :  TOP SOUTH AFRICAN TOURNAMENT RUNSCORER

SELECTION  :   QUINTON DE KOCK   +175

With  the Super 12 stage of the T20 World Cup starting on Saturday 23rd  3.00 am ( Pacific Time )  the bigger established nations enter the event.

Australia play South Africa in Abu Dhabi in the opening match in Group 1.

Sometimes favorites in such markets such as Top SA Tournament Run-scorer are not priced as short as they should be.

As an opening batsman  QUINTON DE KOCK  has been consistently dominant for every franchise he has played for in this format including  2019 & 2020 Champions of IPL Mumbai Indians.

Requinlishing the captaincy is big for QDK  with Bavuma leading the team he can concentrate solely on his batting & wicketkeeping

Stats would suggest he should possibly be nearer + 1.00, and he is guaranteed barring injury to bat every match South Africa play

T20  WORLD CUP

MARKET :  TOP  PAKISTANI  TOURNAMENT  RUNSCORER

SELECTION :  BABAR AZAM  + 1.75

BABAR AZAM is the one global batting superstar in the Pakistan line up .  Similar to the De Kock selection his stats probably suggest he should be nearer odds on for this particular market

Unlike in test cricket where BABAR AZAM bats lower down  he has a dominant opening partnership with wicket keeper Rizwan . He would be the main danger to BABAR AZAM where Pakistan tend to struggle with finishers in the death overs form the middle order.

Often  Pakistan successes have been achieved by decent opening  stands

You tend to find both the above markets are priced similar to Top Runscorer for individual matches  but in both cases the dominance of such individuals and the fact both will have the huge advantage of opening every innings the lines are generous.

Also it is worth noting both of these nations will do well to make the later stages ( semi final & final ) so we could be looking at aggregation over only five matches
