Pakistan skipper and West Indies ace boosted for clash!

| 20.02.2015

Blink and you’ll miss these cracking Cricket World Cup boosts on two expert ODI batsmen ahead of Pakistan’s Pool B encounter with the West Indies on Friday night.

The match is due to get underway at 10:00 pm GMT and those Ladbrokes customers with a better eye on the ball than England’s entire batting line-up can cash in shortly beforehand.

Between 9-9.30 pm the bookmakers will inflate the price on Pakistan captain Misbah-ul-Haq and West Indies powerhouse Chris Gayle to top score in the match.

Misbah-ul-Haq: Was 7/2 out to 5/1

So often the anchor man of a Pakistani innings both in ODIs and Test matches, this offer is the equivalent of a sweetly struck boundary considering the way Misbah performed in defeat to India first off.

The man who hit the most ODI 50s in 2013 started proceedings by top scoring for his side with 76, while inexperienced opener Ahmed Shehzad was next on 47.

Pakistan’s rock should be snapped up at the odds.

Chris Gayle: Was 11/4 out to 9/2

Another man to find himself on the losing side in game one, Gayle managed a respectable 36 for his efforts, which included one trademark six and three other boundaries.

It’s fair to say Gayle hasn’t been in his finest form with the willow since arriving Down Under, but that knock should act as a stepping stone back to the sort of scores he compiled in the
recent ODI series against South Africa.

Early in the year, the left-handed legend chalked up scores of 77,90 and 44 against the Proteas, harbouring reputedly the best bowling attack in the world at present.
