SKY Sports’ cricket man Joe Drabble (@Joe_Drabs) has Australia’s meeting with Scotland in sight as he hunts for more big price winners at the World Cup.
Australia v Scotland | Saturday 03.30 | Sky Sports 2
The group stages are almost over and thank goodness for that, quite frankly! Australia’s last port of call is a processional victory over basement boys Scotland to secure themselves second-place in Group A and avoid a potential quarter-final with South Africa.
With rain forecast later on Saturday, Australia will be keen to get this one over and done with as quickly as possible but this also makes tipping pretty tricky…
Playing in Hobart, a run-fest normally, Australia will more than likely bowl first due to the dodgy weather forecast and aim to skittle the Scots as quickly as possible. Mitchell Johnson is gearing up for his 150th ODI in the gold and green and, as well as having a decent record at the ground, is 4/1 to be the Top Wicket-taker in the match & 9/1 Man Of The Match. That is value enough for me.
In the runscorer market it’s hard to look past Australia’s free-scoring duo Aaron Finch & David Warner but they are far too short so I’ve been studying hard to get us some value… Aussie captain Michael Clarke, likely to bat at No.4 but potentially No.3 if he fancies giving himself a net, is a whopping 9/1 to bank the Most Match Runs and that is simply too good to refuse!
Australia v Scotland – Mitchell Johnson to be Top Bowler (4/1 Stan James)
