Top batter prediction: The Kohli train is approaching top speed with the semi-finals looming for his Indian team. We have tipped the world’s top batsman to top-score in his past few matches and he has obliged each time, much to the delight of the WGL team. No reason to change course so we will try the classy right-hander once more at $3.25 with William Hill. Bangladesh’s batting has been outstanding; maybe it’s the turn of Liton Das to be top batter at $8 in this massive match for his country.


Top five in betting: Mustafizur Rahman $3.75, Shakib Al Hasan $4.50, Rubel Hossain $4.50, Mehidy Hasan $4.50, Mohammad Saifuddin $4.50, Abu Jayed $4.50.

v Pakistan: Vijay Shankar 2-22, Kuldeep Yadav 2-32, Hardik Pandya 2-44,
v New Zealand: Match abandoned

Top bowler tip: Jasprit Bumrah has not had a great tournament by his lofty standards but did rip through the Tigers’ line-up the last time they met. Keeping with the theme that pace has dominated this World Cup, we will try the deadly accurate Bumrah to take most wickets. Shakib Al Hasan struck 50 and took five-for against Afghanistan to take man of the match honours, as predicted by the World Gambling List in our preview of that match. His confidence is sky-high and there is nothing he can’t do at the moment. Top wicket-taker for his team? Easy for Shakib at $4.50.

Best bets: Bangladesh v India

Each of our ICC World Cup betting previews will highlight some potential wins for punters, or where our cricket tipsters think there is value to be found.

Virat Kohli man of the match at $6 and Shakib Al Hasan man of match at $8

Two of the great players in cricket and they have both delivered for us with previous man-of-the-match displays already. It seems strange to back opposing players for this honour but we believe Kohli and Shakib will be put in great performances again, and whoever is on the winning side will get the nod. Not a bad bet to put on and then just sit back and enjoy the show

Bangladesh v India predictions

This is a genuinely huge match in the history of Bangladeshi cricket. If the Tigers can upstage the powerful India on such a big stage, it will be party time in Dhaka. This is a match to savour from the first ball to the last. Good punting to all.
