SKY Sports cricket man Joe Drabble (@Joe_Drabble) has been in profitable form during the tournament Down Under. Next in focus is Pakistan’s duel with West Indies on Friday night.
Pakistan v West Indies | Friday 22.00 | Sky Sports 2
Two totally out of form sides clash in Christchurch on Saturday and, after starting the World Cup with defeats, another here would put one in serious danger of an early elimination.
Pakistan have lost 11 of their past 13 ODIs and West Indies seven of their past eight. Picking a winner isn’t going to be easy…
I’m on Pakistan, though. West Indies were a total shambles against Ireland in their opening match and there is little to suggest they will return to form here.
Looking at the individual markets I’m tipping Shahid Afridi to come to the fore. ‘Boom Boom’ is 7/2 (Betfred) to be Pakistan’s top bowler and 13/2 (Stan James) to take the most wickets in the match. We’ll take both… and also the 14/1 (BetVictor) for him to be named Man of the Match.
Pakistan v West Indies – Pakistan to win (8/13 Betvictor)
Pakistan v West Indies – Shahid Afridi to be Pakistan’s Top Bowler (7/2 Betfred)
Pakistan v West Indies – Shahid Afridi to be Top Bowler (13/2 Stan James)
Pakistan v West Indies – Shahid Afridi to be named Man of the Match (14/1 BetVictor)
