The ODI World Cup in India might favor the batters, but this is not going to be one-sided for sure in the favour of bowlers. There are a number of bowlers who are going to push the batters to their limits in this multinational tournament.

Especially the left arm pacers!

They always have the advantage of the angle and usually move the ball into the right hander, creating trouble for the batters. Through fancy bets, you can bet on specific bowlers. 

We will take a look at 3 left-arm pacers to bet on in ODI World Cup 2023.

Who are the 3 left-arm pacers to bet on in ODI World Cup 2023?  

There are many bowlers who can make it big during the ODI World Cup, but we are especially looking at three left-armers who have proven their worth in recent years. We are talking about Shaheen Shah Afridi, Mitchell Starc, and Trent Boult, the 3 left-arm pacers to bet on in ODI World Cup. 

Mitchell Starc: 

Starc is an excellent swinger of the ball. He is lanky and extracts good bounce from docile wickets.

  • Moreover, the angle that he creates causes a lot of trouble for right-handed players.
  • Starc’s excellent ODI record is proof of his class.
  • He has played 110 ODIs, picking up 219 wickets in the process. His career best is 6/28.

After making his debut against India in 2010, he has never looked back, going from strength to strength.

Shaheen Shah Afridi:

Just like Starc, Afridi too has the height to extract the bounce from Indian pitches. He also creates an angle and moves the ball into the right-hander.

  • He is especially ruthless with the new ball, and a case in point could be his antics against India, where he went on to pick the wickets of KL Rahul and Rohit Sharma.
  • Afridi is quite prone to getting injured. Last year, he injured his knee and was forced to sit out of the Asia Cup. 
  • His fans would be hoping that he keeps fit and doesn’t let his team down in the all-important ODI World Cup.

Afridi has played 36 ODIs, picking up 70 wickets.

Trent Boult:

Boult made his ODI debut in 2011, and by the time the 2019 ODI World Cup came, he was the pace spearhead of this Kiwi attack.

  • In 99 ODIs, he has picked up 187 wickets, and his fans must be hoping that he continues his rich form in India, where he spends a lot of time playing the IPL.
  • In white ball cricket, Boult has been extra special with the new ball, angling his deliveries into the right-hander, often trapping them LBW.
  • He is known for taking wickets in the powerplay, consistently. 

Final Thoughts on 3 left-arm pacers to bet on in World Cup ODI Cricket

Left-armers always have the advantage over right-armers.

Since most of the batters are right-handed, they create an angle for the right-handed batter.

This is the case with all three that have been named here. Moreover, two of them, Starc and Afridi, are lanky, which helps them extract bounce from the wicket.

In the upcoming ODI World Cup, these three left-armers are expected to shine with the new ball.
