The Test series between England and West Indies will restart action and the betting fans can place their bets after taking into account the cricket odds. It has been a long time since we have seen any action due to the coronavirus pandemic and the players are eagerly waiting to get back to action.
We predict three players who can get the Man of the series award and thus you can place your bets on these players.
Man of the series award
The player who scores the most number of runs or takes the most wickets are generally contenders for the Man of the series award. The all-rounders have a higher chance of doing so and thus it’s better to back them.
Betting Tips – Selecting a player from the hosts’ team is better as he knows the condition better and his chance of scoring runs or taking wickets are more than the touring player.
Here are the three players:
England talisman Ben Stokes is a world-class all-rounder. Stokes has been in sublime form and he would look to tick the right boxes against West Indies. The left-hander has scored 228 runs in three Test matches against the Windies and he has also scalped nine wickets against them in 2017.
Stokes is in the form of his life and he will be the cynosure of all eyes in the series against WI. The all-rounder might lead in the first Test in the absence of Joe Root.
The young all-rounder has really impressed with his skills. Curran has the ability to move the ball both ways, which is key to success in England conditions. The southpaw is also handy with the bat in the lower.
Curran is yet to play against the West Indies in Test matches but he was at his best in the 2018 series against India. The left-hander had scalped 11 wickets and scored 272 runs in four Test matches versus India.
The West Indies captain is a complete package in Test matches. Holder has the adroits to move the ball and he is a technically strong batsman. The right-arm medium pacer had scalped eight wickets on the previous tour of England.
Holder has a double century to his name in Test matches and he has scalped 106 wickets in 40 Test matches at an average of 26.38.
Summary – Ben Stokes had done some impossible things in the last summer and he would be our top bet out of the three players because of his red-hot form.
