Well who saw that coming? I certainly didn’t.
I have to admit that I did write on this blog yesterday that I couldn’t see past an Aussie win in this match, although in fairness, in what can only be described as a touch of fence sitting, I did also advise caution as Pakistan have the attack well suited to maximize the Headingley condiditons.
And they certainly did just that.
Either way, it was some days cricket. I have waited years to see that happen to Australia, shame it couldn’t have been an English attack that did it though, but never mind.
In the betting, Pakistan are now into 8/15 with Stan James to finally beat the Aussies, who are now 5/2 with Bet365. The draw is 8/1 with Totesport.
I wasn’t too accurate in saying a draw looked nailed on in Galle either, another crazy day there saw 12 wickets fall. India are now on the brink of defeat, and maybe the wicket wasn’t that batsman friendly after all.
One thing that is for sure, is that either India’s batting or bowling, or maybe both hasn’t been up to scratch as they are being outplayed by Sri Lanka.
Sri Lanka are now favourites to wrap up the win at a best price of 1/4 with
Paddy Power, the draw is now out to 10/3 with Bet365, and India are 150/1 with Stan James, although 1000/1 would be more accurate.
Who knows what to make of Pakistan these days? Something strange is always happening with them.
