T20 WORLD CUP CRICKET
GROUP 1
MATCH : AUSTRALIA v SRILANKA
PLAYER PERFORMANCE WAGER
SELECTION: GLENN MAXWELL  OVER 34.5 pts  -120
Wednesdays only match in the T20 Cricket World Cup takes place in Dubai where two undefeated sides clash as Australia take on Sri Lanka
On these very slow pitches the slower bowlers with pace off are tending in bowl their allocation  Australia in their opening  victorious fixture against South Africa chose to play one specialist spinner Adam Zampa  meaning  RCB all rounder GLENN MAXWELL  bowled his full four overs taking one wicket in the process
Maxwell will also bat in the top six in the Australian line up and field in the gully where catches are frequently taken with batters trying to hit late shots behind square of the wicket.  In the South African match  under the same scoring system ( 1pt per run 20pts per wicket & 10pts per catch ..Maxwell accrued  48 points ( 18 runs 1 catch and 1 wicket )
The line at 34.5  for a fixture where Australia has a higher probable win % seems slightly low. Maxwell will be key to Australia’s progression in the tournament. He was also consistent for RCB in the IPL on similar pitches recently in the UAE
Take Glenn Maxwell over 34.5 points -120
