Betting on the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup 2020 has been available for almost two years prior to the beginning of the tournament. Like most international women’s cricket events the teams favoured in betting include powerhouses such as Australia, India, England and New Zealand. While we expect the world order to be maintained, at least one of these teams won’t reach the semi-finals, with Australia, India and New Zealand drawn together in group A. The dominance of the big four doesn’t mean there won’t be some outstanding betting opportunities during the T20 Women’s World Cup.
We really like host nation Australia’s chances of backing up its world no.1 ranking on its home shores, but the Southern Stars have been shown to be fallible by an impressive Indian team, that is also well liked in the betting. The Aussies did, however, win the tri-series against India and England just before the T20 World Cup to flex their muscles, with exceptional talents such as Ellyse Perry and Beth Mooney leading the way. The one major concern for the Aussies is the form of star bat Alyssa Healy, who has struggled in lead-up matches.
The odds for the T20 World Cup Women’s event suggest an upset victory to a team outside of the top four is very unlikely, although it’s worth noting that the West Indies won the tournament in 2016, and much like the men’s team have an enigmatic ability to beat any team on their day. The Windies are paying around the $51 quote to win the tournament.
If you are a cricket traditionalist and are wondering why Thailand is mentioned on this page, the South East Asian nation qualified for the tournament after beating Papua New Guinea in an official qualifying tournament. While we don’t expect Thailand to do very well at the T20 W World Cup, we think it’s greta for the sport to push into emerging markets and continue to grow the game. For us punters though, Thailand’s matches are likely to provide blowouts not in their favour and long odds.

We figure this is a key betting market for the T20 World Cup, with plenty of interest in who will be crowned the player of the tournament. This is the type of market that could throw up a surprise so we will give you a couple of tips, but first we will take a look at the odds for player of the tournament:
$7 Beth Mooney
$7.50 Ellyse Perry
$8 Sophie Devine
$11 Alyssa Healy
$15 Meg Lanning
$17 Smriti Mandhana, Heather Knight
$21 Nat Sciver
$23 Harmanpreet Kaur
$26 Megan Schutt, Danni Wyatt, Ashleigh Gardner, Jemimah Rodrigues, Dane Van Niekerk
$34 Tayla Vlaeminck, Jess Jonassen, Suzie Bates, Shafali Verma
$41 Rajeshwari Gayakwad, Lizelle Lee, Radha Yadav
All other players $51 or greater
Best bet: Ellyse Perry to win player of the tournament: Australia’s star all-rounder Perry seems to have everything. Perry, the Australian-capped soccer player and arguably the best T20 cricketer in the world, is paying $7.50 to win player of the tournament and we think she, barring injury, or a massive fall in grace for her team is an extremely attractive bet.
Roughie bet tip: Shafali Verma: The prodigiously talented Indian 15-year-old has recently made a 78-ball 124 against the Aussies. Fearless and timing are two traits we see in Verma and they will be needed on the bouncy decks down under. At $34 with Williamhill.com she looks a good value bet.
Having dominant top-order batsman is crucial to being successful in the T20 game and there are a number of teams that have players that need to fire for their teams to win the tournament. Below we will run you through a best bet and value bet for the leading run scorer at the T20 World Cup for women.
$4.50 Beth Mooney
$6 Sophie Devine
$7 Alyssa Healy
$9 Heather Knight
$11 Smriti Mandhana, Danni Wyatt
$13 Nat Sciver, Harmanpreet Kaur
$17 Meg Lanning
$23 Lizelle Lee, Ellyse Perry
$26 Jemimah Rodrigues, Shafali Verma, Ashleigh Gardner
$29 Amy Jones
$41 Deandra Dottin, Dane Van Niekerk, Rachel Priest
Best bet: Lizelle Lee: Lee is South Africa’s lynchpin at the top of the order and looms as their most important player. The classy batter averages almost 25 in just under 70 T20 matches and strikes at 107 runs per 100 balls.
Value bet: Suzie Bates, the White Ferns captain, is the no.1 ranked T20 batter for a reason. The Kiwis veteran will need to be at her best if the White Ferns are to progress in this tournament and her experience in Aussie conditions will be a big plus for her team. Bates is paying a whopping $51 with William Hill to top the runs at the T20 Women’s World Cup.
We won’t beat around the bush here, nobody wants a T20 tipster who is afraid to put it on the line. Our T20 World Cup winner prediction is Australia. We think Australia’s all-rounders, home conditions and potentially vocal local crowd will be enough to see the Aussies victorious. If you are anti-green and gold you could do worse than having a bet on India to win the tournament — they have serious firepower and offer more value than Australia.
