Surprises galore

This year’s ICC T20 Cricket World Cup has thrown up no shortage of surprises, not least being host nation US beating former victors Pakistan and edging closer to a surprise qualification for the second round of the tournament. England are the competition’s second most successful side with their win in the previous edition down under doubling their haul in the T20 World Cup. Nevertheless, as a disappointing showing in their tournament opener against Scotland and defeat to the Aussies in their second outing, the Three Lions need to rediscover their form in order to haul themselves out of the group and into the next phase.

 

Biggest shock

Joss Buttler’s men need wins in their remaining games and pray that Scotland slip-up during this time in order to avoid what would certainly be the biggest shock of the competition thus far. The Three Lions may have yet to win a match but they are very well placed to qualify from the group given that their final two outings are against Namibia and Oman, sides which have already been dumped out of the tournament. Nevertheless, neither of these sides will be a pushover and as we’ve already seen, there are surprises at every corner in this competition.

 

Game over

If Australia beat Scotland as expected in their final group match, and the Three Lions triumph in each of their last two, then Buttler’s men will proceed into the next stage with seven points. Indeed, even if the Scots post a surprise win over the Aussies, England can still qualify by winning their last two thanks to their superior Net Run Rate over Australia. Key to these eventualities is that the Three Lions beat both Namibia and Oman, therefore there is no rook for error here. England are 1/28 best odds to beat Oman today (Thursday 13th June) and defeat for Buttler’s side would mean game over.

Spared an embarrassing defeat

England were spared an embarrassing defeat in their T20 Cricket World Cup opener yesterday with rain halting play in a game in which Scotland had got themselves very much on top. This game was reduced to ten overs a side with rain halting play for over two hours, however the weather failed to improve and in the end, England had no time left to complete a run chase and the match was finally abandoned at 8pm.

 

Third favourites

England are now third favourites to win the 2024 T20 Cricket World Cup, the Three Lions also up against Australia and Namibia in their group. Should England finish in the top two in their group, then they will move into the Super 8 stage where eight sides from the four groups will form two separate groupings, the top two from each of these going through to the semi-finals of the tournament. The winners of the semi-finals will face each other at the Kensington Oval in Bridgetown on 29th June.

 

Disappointing showing

Following their disappointing showing in their tournament opener, the Three Lions are third favourites to lift the trophy at a best price of 11/2, behind favourites India at best odds of 5/2 and second-favourites Australia at 7/2. The West Indies are a 13/2 shot for success in the competition while South Africa complete the top five in the outright betting at a best price of 7/1.
