Match 31 of the 2023 ICC Cricket World Cup will see Pakistan play against Bangladesh at Eden Gardens in Kolkata on the 31st of October. The game is scheduled to start at 08:30 GMT. Bangladesh are all but out of the reckoning for a spot in the top four, while Pakistan need a win in order to keep their slim hopes of qualification alive. Who will go on to win this match? Well, you can find my predictions below and the odds that some of the best Irish betting sites are currently offering.

💯 Pakistan v Bangladesh Betting Odds


Bookmakers will make sure that they offer betting odds and markets for sports that their customers enjoy watching and placing bets on, and due to cricket's increasing popularity across Ireland, there is now a wide variety of top Irish bookmakers that have quality cricket betting platforms.

In this section of my guide, I am going to give you three cricket markets that I enjoy betting on and the odds that some of the best bookmakers are offering at this moment.

Match Winners Odds: Pakistan v Bangladesh

Are you interested in placing a match winner bet on this Pakistan v Bangladesh match? If yes, then here are the match-winner odds from some of my favourite bookies:


Top Batsman Odds: Pakistan v Bangladesh

One of the reasons why cricket betting is so popular, even among those who are not huge fans of the sport, is that there are many fun markets to place bets on. Think of a cricket-related outcome, and you will come across a betting option for it somewhere. One of the most entertaining markets, in my opinion, is the top batsman market, where you are tasked with trying to guess the batter who will top score for their team. With this market, you can follow your selected player through the highs and the lows.

Below you can find three batsmen from Pakistan and Bangladesh that I think should be taken into consideration for this market. You can also see their current top batsman odds:


Babar Azam3.053.05
Mohammad Rizwan4.504.50


Liton Das4.804.80
Mushfiqur Rahim4.704.70
Mahmudullah Mohammad7.257.20

Top Wicket Taker Odds: Pakistan v Bangladesh

If the top batsman market does not appeal to you for whatever reason, then you might want to try and predict the bowler that will pick up the most wickets for their team. The number of wickets taken is the main factor for this market, so you do not need to pay too much attention to a bowler's economy - unless two or more players take the same number of wickets.

Below I have given you three Pakistani and Bangladeshi bowlers that I feel are worth looking at for the top wicket taker market. You can also see the top wicket taker odds that are currently being offered:


Shaheen Afridi3.253.25
Rauf Haris3.703.70
Shadab Khan5.005.00


Shakib Al Hasan4.704.70
Shoriful Islam4.004.00
Mahedi Hasan4.804.80

The above odds were correct at the time of writing. For updated odds, go to the bookmakers' sites.

🔍 Pakistan v Bangladesh Match Winner Prediction

Pakistan have four points from six matches, while Bangladesh have two points from six matches. This means that Bangladesh will need a miracle in order to make it through to the semi-finals, while Pakistan's hope are hanging by a thread which will be cut should they lose this game on Tuesday.

Pakistan will still be sore from their 1-wicket defeat against South Africa on Friday - they came so close to getting a very important win, but South Africa's lower order kept their nerve and saw their team home. Having come so close to beating a really good South African team, Pakistan might find it hard to pick themselves up for this one, but they will have to if they want to stay in the hunt for a top-four finish.

Bangladesh have not been playing very good cricket at all throughout this competition, and things hit a new low at the weekend when they were turned over by the Netherlands. They restricted the Dutch to a score of 229, and they were then bowled out for 142, losing the match by 87 runs.

Not only do Pakistan have a better team than Bangladesh, but they also have better form, which is why I can see nothing but a win for them. The only thing that will stop Pakistan from picking up a much-needed win will be their mercurial nature and the fact we can never tell which team is going to show up.

My Pakistan vs Bangladesh Winner Prediction: Pakistan to Win!

✔️ Pakistan v Bangladesh CWC Betting Tips

If you want to do some sports betting on this Pakistan v Bangladesh match, then check out my Cricket World Cup betting tips below:

Match Winner: Pakistan to Win

Pakistan and Bangladesh have played each other 38 times in ODIs, and Pakistan lead the way with 33 wins to Bangladesh's five. So, Pakistan lead the way on the head-to-head record, are in better form, and have the better team, so everything is pointing towards a win for Pakistan.

If you do not support either Pakistan or Bangladesh, this is still a match that you should think about tuning into since Pakistan are one of the most entertaining teams in world cricket due to their mercurial nature. They will be eager to put that close defeat to South Africa behind them and get back to winning ways.

Bangladesh also have a point to prove after their poor result against the Dutch, and a win against Pakistan will at least add a bit of gloss on what has been a poor campaign for them so far. They do have some players that can cause problems for Pakistan, but Pakistan's better form and squad depth should see them home. However, the odds for a Pakistan win are quite short, so I would not really recommend placing a match-winner bet for this game.

However, if you still want to put money on Pakistan to beat Bangladesh, then LegendPlay Sports currently have odds of 1.30 for them to win.

Pakistan's Top Batsman Winner: Mohammad Rizwan to Win

Pakistan's best batsman at this World Cup has been Mohammad Rizwan as he has scored 333 runs in six matches at a healthy average of 66.60, so it might not be much of a surprise to see that I am backing him to top score for Pakistan against Bangladesh. He has been in fine form, and I feel that he will be able to cash in against a Bangladeshi bowling unit that has been a little bit toothless so far.

If you want to put money on Mohammad Rizwan to top score for Pakistan, then Dachbet Sports are currently offering odds of 4.50 for this market.

Bangladesh's Top Batsman Winner: Mahmudullah to Win

Liton Das started off as Bangladesh's top batter at this World Cup, but he has since been overtaken by Mahmudullah, who has been in fine form. In the four matches that he has played, he has scored 218 runs at an average of 72.67. He is the only Bangladeshi to have scored a century in this tournament as well. He is a quality middle-order batter that has the ability to hit fours and sixes with ease.

If you want to put money on Mahmadullah being the top batter for Bangladesh against Pakistan, then Dachbet Sports are offering odds of 7.25.

Pakistan's Top Wicket Taker: Shaheen Shah Afridi to Win Top Wicket Taker

There is only one Pakistani bowler that I can consider for this market, and that is Shaheen Shah Afridi as he has been imperious throughout this tournament. He has collected a total of 13 wickets in the six matches that he has played, at a really impressive average of 22.77. He has caused issues for all of the batsmen that he has bowled at during this WC, and he should have plenty of fun bowling at a Bangladesh batting unit that is devoid of form and confidence.

TonyBet Sports are offering odds of 3.25 for Shaheen Afridi to take the most wickets for Pakistan against Bangladesh.

Bangladesh's Top Wicket Taker: Mahedi Hasan to Win Top Wicket Taker

Mahedi Hasan has only played in two matches for Bangladesh at this World Cup, but he has already managed to pick up six wickets at an average of 18.50. He has come in and shown his quality right away, and I am sure that he will be selected to play against Pakistan. I am also sure that he will cause plenty of issues for the Pakistani batters, which is why I am backing him to take the most wickets for his team.

Those who want to back Mahedi Hasan to take the most Pakistani wickets can find odds of 4.80 at TonyBet Sports.

Constantly improving your knowledge about the different teams and their players is a good way to increase your chances of having success when cricket betting, which is why I have linked both teams' Twitter (X) feeds below for you.

4️⃣What is the Best Type of Cricket Bet?

This is a very subjective question since the best type of bet for one person might not be the best for someone else. Two of the best types of cricket bets, for me, are the top batsman and top wicket taker markets as they offer a lot of entertainment.

5️⃣What Are the Common Deposit and Withdrawal Times?

This depends on the sports betting site that you have opened an account with. Deposited money will usually appear in your account straight away. When it comes to withdrawals, if you opt to withdraw using banking methods such as Visa or MasterCard, then you could wait up to five working days. If you decide to use Neteller, Skrill, or PayPal, then you should receive your winnings in 24 hours.
