Having tipped Zimbabwe to upset New Zealand and watching the Kiwis win by the small margin of 10 wickets, I feel that I am now in no position to tip anything ever again.
I suppose one positive is that I didn’t tip Bangladesh to beat West Indies, as they were even worse than Zimbabwe. I heard a disturbing report that Ricky Ponting was up to his old tricks again, apparently this time he stoned the West Indies team coach as it left the ground.
This man is clearly out of control, the authorities should have thrown him out after the incident in which he smashed the television to smithereens with his box.
Tomorrow’s game between Sri Lanka and Australia looks too close to call. The Sri Lankans are slight favourites at a best price of 10/11 with Coral and Sportingbet. Australia are Evens with Sky Bet and Totesport.
Not going to bother having a bet on this one, I do have a sneaky feeling for Australia though.
With the way my tipping is going, I feel the need to put a bet on South Africa on Sunday. Everything else I have touched has lost, so at least it would mean a much needed win for England.
