Following their surprise victory over Pakistan, the US Cricket Team aim to solidify their chances of reaching the T20 World Cup Super 8 stage with victory over India

After their thrilling Super Over win over Pakistan last time out, USA take one of the juggernauts in world cricket on Wednesday – India.

The US Cricket Team have surprised fans alike in their opening two matches of the ICC T20 World Cup – beating Canada by seven wickets before overcoming World No.6 Pakistan.

They now face the world’s best T20 international side, India – who won the inaugural T20 World Cup back in 2007.

Our cricket tipster has looked through the markets, picking out a few tips that could be worth backing ahead of the exciting matchup.

Here are the best bets for USA v India in the T20 Cricket World Cup.


Despite only scoring 12 runs across his first two games, US opening batsman Steven Taylor could put up a better showing against the world’s best this time around.

A tall and powerful batter, Taylor has shown his capabilities of hitting boundaries consistently and cause havoc in the

This is going to be arguably one of his toughest tasks against a frightening India bowling attack – who will likely benefit from the fast surface in New York.

That could also work in Taylor’s favour, who can get a few quick knocks and surpass his over total in this contest.

India did blow out the Irish opening partnership fairly quickly in their opening game with Andy Balbirnie and Paul Stirling only managing five and two runs respectively – but they did allow a total of 46 runs from the Pakistan opening batting pair of Mohammad Rizwan and Babar Azam.

Steven Taylor is yet to make his mark in this tournament for the USA in terms of batting, so he could well produce one of his finest hours in the opening stages.

Take Taylor’s over line, as well as for him to register at least one six here.

TIP: Steven Taylor Over 11.5 Runs (-112, FanDuel)
TIP: Steven Taylor Over 0.5 Sixes (+150, DraftKings Sportsbook)


While we are hoping for an electric game, there is a chance it could get out of control early on – if the US bat first.

Steven Taylor was bowled out without a single run on the board against Canada – but they did put up more of a fight against Pakistan, putting up 36 runs before Taylor was dismissed.

India’s bowling talents are extremely difficult to deal with, so it wouldn’t be a shock to see them start strongly if they bowl first.

It took 43 runs for the USA to bowl out the first Canadian batter in their opening game – but they were more ruthless against Pakistan, bowling two players out before they had even chalked up 15 runs.

The US could shock India early on with a quick dismissal – so the fall of first wicket market looking interesting here.

Take the under total of 20.5 runs in this market.

TIP: Fall of 1st Wicket – Under 20.5 Runs (-115, DraftKings Sportbook)
