With the cloudy conditions expected at Taunton it makes most sense to look into the bowler market betting angles. Mitchell Starc is currently joint second in the World Cup top wicket taker standings and the Aussie quick could be set up to add to that tally on Wednesday.
Since the 2015 World Cup, Starc has played four games against Pakistan and taken 9 wickets at an average of 18.11. Pakistan have already shown they are susceptible to pace and Starc has that in abundance.
Mohammad Amir has taken 5 wickets so far during the World Cup in two games. Again with the conditions suiting seamers it could pay to side with him to pick up at least another two against Australia.
In the 2017 Champions Trophy final, Amir took the wickets of India’s top three of Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan and Virat Kohli and conceded only 16 runs. Before his ban for ball-tampering in 2010, he wreaked havoc in T20s and Test series against Australia played in England.
