England vs Pakistan 2nd Test 2020

Pakistan just about did enough to win the first test but as is the case with most Pakistani teams they do tend losing when they should win. Are we too harsh? Pakistan will probably feel they should have bowled better in the 2nd innings and without Masood’s 156 the result would have been very one-sided. Keep in mind he was dropped several times on the way to his match top score.

Stokes absence is a massive deal, and we doubt the sportsbooks are pricing his absence correctly. Pakistan@4’s is a very good bet with the idea of exiting the bet in play. That is when Pakistan’s odds go to 2.8 or lower – cash out.

England v Pakistan 2nd Test 2020 Match Prediction

england cricket
England to win * trade Pakistan to win and exit in play.

England played well when they needed it. Buoyed by the heroics of the 2019 Ashes Stokes innings, this English side is capable of chasing difficult 2nd innings totals. 

In the 1st test the English openers failed but its doubtful England’s new genuine opening batsman, Dom Sibley, well fail again. He scored 36 off 114 balls in the 2nd innings which is what he needs to keep doing, albeit with 20 to 30 more runs on the board.  

England didn’t played well in Southampton against the West Indies but we expect another England win. 

Pakistan need to bowl better and maybe the extended layoff hindered their efforts. Pakistan has a great trio of fast bowlers in Shaheen Afridi, Mohammad Abbas and Naseem Shah.

Pakistan @ 4.50 to win is very tempting. The idea would be to trade in and out during the match with in-play betting. Barring a massive 1st innings collapse or a gigantic England lead these odds will shorten throughout the match. 

The forecast is thunderstorms on Day 1 and Day 2 and scattered showers for the remaining three days. Check out our top betting tips for a rain affected draw. 

No word yet from the captains regarding the ptich but It’s a seamers dream pitch and conditions.  In four Tests at the Ageas Bowl, spinners average 30.27 (33 wickets) while for seamers its 31.73  and 94 wickets.
