T20 World Cup Final – India vs Sri Lanka – Mirpur 2.00pm Sky 2
They are a good team but not a great one and one thing that concerns me is how often their batting crumbles. I have no such fear about the Indian line-up. They just look rock solid and with the General, MS Dhoni, running things down the order its a tough task to keep them from scoring heavily.
The Indian bowling is hittable and Sri Lanka may well score big if they bat first but I think they will struggle if they chase. T20 is all about scoring runs but the job of the bowlers is to try to stem the tide. There is no doubt that Malinga is still potent but I’m not sure that the rest of the bowlers hold the same fear for the amazing Virat Kohli who seems to be getting better and better in this format and the mercurial Yuvraj Singh who times the ball sweeter than most I have ever seen and for that reason my money is with the masters of the sub continent – India.
I love watching India bat, everyone in the first 8 plays breath taking cricket and they seem to play without fear knowing if they miss out there are 7-8 others who can get big runs quickly. I don’t think we can say the same about Sri Lanka. True, if one or two of the stalwarts in the Sri Lankan line-up come-off they will get a big score but betting is about the balance of probability and there are more chances of India scoring big than Sri Lanka and with the layers make it almost a pick game we have no choice but to be with India.
I think they are a cracking bet and advise accordingly
