Sri Lanka Carry The Class

Live on Skysports 1: Sat 08.30: In what promises to be a great World Cup match, Sri Lanka are 4/7 (Stan James) to see off Pakistan.

Pakistan, 7/4 at , did the job against Kenya but there were concerns over some of the bowling at times.

Pakistan were massively assisted by awful Kenyan bowling (at times) and a tail collapse from their African opponents and while Sri Lanka were only playing minnows Canada, there was a much more ruthless air about their crushing victory.

These two are familair to each other; no sides have played each other more in all formats in the last 5 years than Sri Lanka and Pakistan. In 17 ODI’s since 2006, both have won 8 but this time you feel the bountiful presence of match winners for Sri Lanka carry the key.

Sangakkara will be annoyed he did not close out a century last time out and could be the main threat, he is 7/2 (Ladbrokes) to top score. Murali didn’t have his best session with the ball against Canada but will slowly find his feet and at 3/1 (bet365) 2nd fav, is worth taking to grab the most wickets.

As for Pakistan, Afridi was the main man last time, taking a 5-for (7/2, 888sport, top wickets for Pakistan) and Younis Khan looked reasonably solid, he is 4/1 for a top score (Stan James).

All in all, take Sri Lanka to win and even entertain the -3.5 wickets or -20.5 runs handicap at 10/11 with Sportingbet.
