Going to have a couple of quid on Zimbabwe to upset New Zealand at Ahmedabad tomorrow.
Pakistan, Sri Lanka and Australia all look certain to qualify from this group, so the 4th spot would appear to be between Zimbabwe and the Kiwis.
At the start of the tournament I wrote that I fancied New Zealand to slip up somewhere, that I didn’t think they were a very strong side. At the time though, I hadn’t reckoned on Canada and Kenya being as weak as they have been shown to be.
Zimbabwe look far superior to those two countries though, add to that the fact that New Zealand probably know that this is effectively a 4th place play-off and the pressure could mount.
With no wins for me so far in this tournament, like England and Graeme Swann my confidence has vanished and I’m desperate for a win. If this bet goes down, I will start posting mad rants about how older commentating gamblers should stop criticising me, as they used to make the same mistakes as I currently am.
Today’s bet – a massive £2 on Zimbabwe to beat New Zealand at
