Match Winner Tips Post After Toss

Cricket Betting Tips – There is an oddity and a sense of hypermetropia to the India-England ODI series decider. With less than 12 months to go for the 2019 World Cup, all the focus from the camps of the top two ODI sides is understandably on the big tournament.
Cricket Betting Tips Free – The three-match series, has thus, been a medium for England – the biggest contenders to break their 50-over World Cup trophy duck in 2019 – to size up a side that might be their biggest adversary. For India, it is not just taking a good, hard look at the tournament favourites, but also making notes of the conditions at play in England, and identifying the sort of players that can fit in.
Cricket Tips – Both the pre-match press conferences had a lot of talk about looking into the future and tuning up for the world cup, while treating the third ODI as ‘just another game.’ England pacer Mark Wood even reckoned how a series win would have more of an impact on the upcoming World Cup, than anything else. “If we can use this game as a semi final, a must win with the pressure on, we can learn what we are doing wrong if we don’t win or what we are doing right if we do win.”
This comes a day after captain Eoin Morgan expressed his concerns about the point of a bilateral series as there can be a clear absence of pressure.
Free Cricket Tips The ‘pressure’ of a series finale hasn’t reflected in the Indian camp either. The top-three of Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli have been India’s best performers with the bat since the 2015 World Cup, but the team needs a fixed and functioning middle-order by the time they return to England next year.
Cricket Tips Free After the sort of dire performance that was put up at Lord’s, Leeds ODI looks like a good starting point for a middle-order renaissance. England, meanwhile, can ride the wave and have their bowlers test and raise their game further against one of the finest top-orders in the game currently.
