United States v India betting tips and predictions

Steven Taylor under 14.5 runs - 5/6

The United States have pulled off two impressive victories in their first two games of the T20 World Cup and have now won eight of their last nine games in this format, including two wins over Bangladesh and a defeat of Pakistan.

This is the biggest challenge of the lot however as they face an Indian side who are ranked as the best in the world and have had two games to acclimatise to the tough conditions at the Nassau International Cricket Ground in New York.

A pitch with variable bounce has caused plenty of issues for all teams to play on it and the United States’ batting lineup may struggle to get used to it after their opening two games were played in Dallas.

An inspired 94 not out from 40 balls, including ten sixes, from Aaron Jones propelled the USA past Canada in the opening game before they produced one of the biggest shocks in T20 World Cup history to beat Pakistan in their second match.

A half-century from captain Monank Patel saw them take the game to a Super Over, which they duly won after a calamitous bowling effort from Pakistan.

One player who has struggled for the United States has been opener Steven Taylor.

The 30-year-old made a duck against Canada before falling for 12 against Pakistan.

Sent out to open on such a difficult pitch, it’s hard to see Taylor managing to make 15 runs or more.

Only one Ireland player managed that feat against a rampant Indian seam attack in the opening game and the United States’ batting lineup could suffer many of the same issues.

Jasprit Bumrah top India wicket taker - 5/2

India produced a dramatic comeback to get the better of rivals Pakistan last time out and it was in large part due to the efforts of Jasprit Bumrah.

Pakistan were going well as they chased India’s total of 119 all out, 57/2 after 10.1 overs, but a flurry of late wickets and a crucial second-last over from Bumrah saw the Men in Blue come out on top.

The tricky bowler finished with figures of 3/14 from his four overs and has been borderline unplayable on the difficult wicket at the Nassau International Cricket Ground.

He has taken a wicket every 8.4 balls while conceding just 2.85 runs per over in the two games he has played at this venue.

In fact, in Bumrah’s last six T20 World Cup appearances he has combined figures of 12/93 from 22.4 overs. 

In fact, in Bumrah’s last six T20 World Cup appearances he has combined figures of 12/93 from 22.4 overs. 

The 30-year-old’s ability to stop batsmen scoring increases the pressure and leads to more wickets.

The paceman looks likely to be his team’s top wicket taker once more in this matchup. 

Hardik Pandya over 1.5 wickets - 5/6

Hardik Pandya is another Indian bowler who has had plenty of success on this difficult wicket for batsmen. He was his country’s top bowler in their win over Ireland with figures of 3/27.

He then followed that with another solid spell of 2/24 from four overs for the Men in Blue against Pakistan and it’s clear that captain Rohit Sharma is going to give Pandya plenty of overs to bowl.

As a result, he looks likely to take two or more wickets once again in this clash.
