test cricket bettingPakistan v England third Test day one report and scorecard: Rehan Ahmed shines

  It was a first glimpse of the talent spoken about by Stokes and head coach McCullum when he beat Saud with a googly turning past the bat, before following it up with a wicket-taking leg-spinner that just took the edge.

  Ahmed’s second came in the evening session, when Faheem Ashraf was trapped lbw for just four, with DRS upholding the decision following a review to leave Pakistan on 237 for seven.

  However, the key wicket of Babar Azam was secured by an exceptional bit of wicketkeeping from the returning specialist Ben Foakes.

  Foakes, who was left out in favour of batter-wicketkeeper Pope for the Multan Test, dived forward to take a throw then with a clever bit of glovework managed to whip the bails off before the Pakistan captain passed the crease.

  As the sun began to set in Karachi, England claimed the remaining three wickets in quick succession, with Jack Leach finishing the day with four for 140 from 31 overs as Pakistan slid from 162 for four to 304 all out.

  Only Babar (78) and Agha Salman (56) were able to reach half-centuries in the Pakistan innings, with wickets falling consistently throughout the day.

  Crawley was out for a duck as England began their first innings, with Abrar Ahmed claiming his first wicket of the match.

  The England opener was trapped lbw having faced just five deliveries and decided not to review.

  In the morning, the tourists had turned immediately to spin, with Leach becoming the first England spinner to open the bowling in the first innings of a match since 1921, when Jack White did so against Australia at Headingley.

  England claimed three wickets in the first session of play, which set the tone for the rest of the day as they continued to make breakthroughs at key times and limited Pakistan’s ability to form significant partnerships.

test cricket bettingPakistan v England: Tourists aim to complete unprecedented whitewash in third and final Test

  England take an unassailable 2-0 into the final Test, and will be looking to complete a series in Pakistan for the first time ever.

  Brendon McCullum’s first overseas series as England’s Test coach has resulted in a series victory, as it has for Ben Stokes’ first overseas series as captain, making the allrounder just the third England captain to achieve the feat.

  The victory in Multan earlier in the week was just the fourth ever Test victory for England in Pakistan, with the hosts having now lost three Test matches in a row at home for the first time since 1959.

  Despite won the series already and arguably being the form Test side in the world, having won eight out nine matches since the start of the English summer, the visitors actually go into the third Test as underdogs, being priced at 13/8 with bet365.

  Pakistan are marginally ahead at 11/8, with a draw priced at 3/1.

  Young England starlet Harry Brook is the leading run scorer so far in the series with 357 runs at an average of 89, which includes two centuries and fifty in his four innings.

  Pakistani spinners Zahid Mahmood and Abrar Ahmed go into the final Test as the leading wicket takers at 12 and 11 respectively, with the latter only playing one match and taking a 7fer in the first innings on Test debut last week.

  England will have some time to relax after the Karachi Test, due to end next Wednesday, before an ODI series in South Africa starting on 27th January in Bloemfontein.

  The Test side aren’t in action again until 16th February when they have a two Test series in New Zealand.

test cricket bettingPakistan vs England: 2nd Test Preview & Betting Tips

  The 2nd Test between Pakistan and England gets underway on Friday afternoon from 4.00pm and is set to be a cracker from Multan. Check out our preview and betting tips for the clash below.

  The dominant Baz Ball era in English cricket continued throughout last week as the Poms recorded a historic 1st Test victory in Rawalpindi. In the first innings, England put on a record breaking display as they piled on a whopping 657 in just 101 overs. Zak Crawley, Ben Duckett, Ollie Pope and Harry Brook all smashed centuries at a combined strike rate of 111.1.

  The only downside to their ridiculous run rate was the fact that it kept all three results, including a Pakistan win, in the picture. In reply, the home side piled on 579 for their first innings on the back of centuries from Abdullah Shafique, Imam ul-Haq and Babar Azam. Spinner Will Jacks was the pick of the bowlers in this innings, claiming 6/161 for the English.

  The Poms came out to bat with one goal in mind, score quickly to set up a chance to win on the final day. The travelling side put up 264 in just 35.5 overs to take a lead of 342 into the final innings.

  Pakistan fought bravely through the early stages of their 2nd innings but once the ball finally started to reverse swing for England, Jimmy Anderson and Ollie Robinson were able to rip through the lower order, picking up 4 wickets each.

  Predicted XI: Ben Duckett, Zak Crawley, Ollie Pope, Joe Root, Ben Stokes, Harry Brook, Ben Foakes, Ollie Robinson, Jack Leach, Mark Wood, Jimmy Anderson

  England opted for two spinners in the 1st Test but I think they revert to the three pronged pace attack plus Ben Stokes for this one. Reverse swing seems to be playing a much bigger part in this series than swing, so the extra pace option in Wood will be handy.

  Ben Foakes, who was ruled out of the 1st Test through illness, will likely come back into the line-up at the expense of the injured Liam Livingstone.

  Predicted XI: Abdullah Shafique, Imam ul-Haq, Azhar Ali, Babar Azam, Saud Shakeel, Agha Salman, Naseem Shah, Zahid Mahmood, Haris Rauf, Mohammad Ali

  The Pakistanis could be forced into making a change with Azhar Ali suffering a hand injury late on the fourth day. However, he did go on to bat on the fifth day, so we are expecting him to take place in this Test.

  Can’t really see the home side making any other changes to their squad, outside of the potential exclusion of spinner Zahid Mahmood, who the English batsmen took a particular liking to in the 1st Test, smashing 235 off his 33 overs in the first innings. OTher spin options they have include Nauman Ali and 24 year old Abrar Ahmed.

  Having the confidence to bet this game comes down to one thing, are you a real believer in Baz Ball? Do you think that this style of play is sustainable or will it come undone somewhere in the near future? Since McCullum and Stokes were given the keys to the English Test side, they have been near perfect, but I’m a firm believer that this batting line-up just isn’t good enough to sustain this level of play.

  Outside of Joe Root and Ben Stokes, there is a lot of unproven talent in the top six for England, and I’m happy to take them on against any top tier international bowling attack, of which Pakistan definitely is. Back the home side to bounce back here.

  Babar Azam 50+ 1st Innings ($2.10 at Ladbrokes)

  Zak Crawley Under 28.5 Runs 1st Innings ($1.83 at Ladbrokes)

  Ben Stokes Over 1.5 1st Innings Wickets ($2.10 at Ladbrokes)

test cricket bettingPronostici College Basket: power ranking e programma NCAAB Week 6. Primo test e primo ko per Houston. Occhio a UConn

  Pronostici College Basket NCAAB Week 6. Novità nel power ranking con gli Houston Cougars che arrivano dalla prima sconfitta stagionale e scendono al 6° posto, anche se continuano a comandare le lavagne delle scommesse antepost per la vittoria finale del titolo nazionale. Attenzione a UConn!

  Apriamo anche questo lunedì dopo una domenica in cui abbiamo stilato uno studio sul College Basket praticamente perfetto. Vi ricordo che trovate tutto questo, e molto altro, nel VIP TELEGRAM di BETTING MANIAC. Contattaci per tutte le info.


  1-Connecticut Huskies

  Datemi del matto ma UConn al momento è il programma che mi sta convincendo maggiormente. Sanogo la stella, ma un gruppo dove ogni volta esce qualcuno di nuovo, dopo Jordan Hawkins, nel dominio contro LIU è toccato a Donovan Clingan prendersi la copertina con 21 punti e 11 rimbalzi in una partita vinta 114-61 dagli Huskies che sono gli unici a poter vantare la top-10 sia nelle statistiche di efficenza offensiva che difensiva.

  2-Purdue Boilmakers

  Il 65-62 su Nebraska a firma Zach Edey (11 punti + 17 rimbalzi) non era così scontato e lancia Purdue al 2° posto del ranking con un record da 10-0. Probabilmente i Boilmakers nel complesso sono superiori a UConn, ma per questa settimana lasciatemi tenere in testa gli Huskies che sabato sfidano Butler in Big East, una partita che ci darà molti spunti, mentre Purdue è attesa alla sfida con Davidson.

  3-Alabama Crimson Tide

  Qualche settimana fa mi interrogavo se Alabama meritasse la top-10, ora la piazzo 4° dopo la vittoria con Houston, Martedì interessante sfida contro Memphis di Penny Hardaway.

  4-Arkansas Razorbacks

  Come per Alabama, anche per Arkansas sono partito un po prevenuto ma i Razorbacks di Musselman mi stanno conquistando e arrivano dal 88-78 su Oklahoma con 26 punti di Ricky Council IV, per un record di 9-1.

  5-Virginia Cavaliers

  La difesa soffocante e il ritmo basso e paralizzante dei Cavaliers hanno colpito anche nel 55-50 su James Madison e sabato la sfida con Houston potrebbe fare scintille, e potrebbe finire davvero con un punteggio basso visti i ritmi e le difese di entrambi i programmi.

  6-Houston Cougars

  Non mi sento di far precipitare Houston che lascio in top-6, anche se la sconfitta al primo vero test stagionale non è un buon segnale. Ora il facile impregno di martedì contro North Carolina A&T, ma tutti attendono i Cougars al varco sabato, nella sfida contro Virginia.

  7-Texas Longhorns

  Nessun problema per i Longhorns che sul campo hanno regolato 88-43 Arkansas-Pine Bluff, un avversario facile. I problemi in Texas arrivano fuori dal campo con le accuse e l’arreso del coach Chris Beard.

  8-Arizona Wildcats

  Azuolas Tubelis guida un attacco davvero completo sia sotto canestro che dalla lunga distanza che come ritmo. La difesa lascia ancora dubbi, ma anche l’ostacolo Indiana e Jackson-Davis è stato superato brillantemente (89-75).

  9-Tennesse Volunteers

  I Volunteers domenica hanno vinto contro Maryland, un test importante dove ancora una volta la difesa di Tennessee ha fatto la differenza, meritando di trascinare il programma nuovamente in top-10.

  10-Baylor Bears

  I Bears hanno dominato 80-57 contro Tarleton State con 26 punti di Keyonte George e domenica giocano contro Washington State.

  11-Kentucky Wildcats

  Oscar Tshiebwe ha segnato 28 punti, conditi da 12 rimbalzi, nel 69-59 su Yale che porta Kentucky ad un record di 7-2.

  12-Gonzaga Bulldogs

  Drew Timme è tornato a fare la voce grossa con 22 punti nel 77-60 su Washington.

  13-Kansas Jayhawks

  24 punti e 10 rimbalzi per Jalen Wilson nel convincente 95-67 in Missouri. Sabato la sfida con Indiana.

  14-Duke Blue Devils

  L’82-55 su Maryland-Eastern Shore fa poco testo. Non so ancora cosa aspettarmi da Duke quest’anno.

  15-Wisconsin Badgers

  Respect Badgers! Dopo la vittoria su Maryland, Wisconsin si è confermata domenica vincendo da sfavorita in trasferta ad Iowa con 21 punti di Wahl.

  16-Mississipi State Bulldogs

  Salgono ancora i Bulldogs che hanno schiacciato 82-52 Mississippi Valley State con 24 punti di Tolu Smith.

  17-UCLA Bruins

  Jaylen Clark ha segnato 24 punti nel 87-64 su Denver. Mercoledì la sfida con Maryland.

  18-Marquette Golden Eagles

  Domenica i Golden Eagles hanno fatto valere la loro maggior freschezza andando a vincere a Notre Dame, un successo in trasefrta per nulla scontato che conferma la qualità del poster di Marquette che mancherà di esperienza, ma non di esplosività.

  19-Ohio State Buckeyes

  Zed Key ha firmato con 22 punti e 14 rimbalzi la faticosa vittoria 67-66 su Rutgers, anche se gli Scarlet Knights in questo avvio stagionale si sono dimostrati un osso duro per tanti. Sabato la sfida di Ohio State contro la nobile decaduta, UNC che è uscita anche dalla top-25 (partiva in top-3 praticamente ovunque!).

  20-Indiana Hoosiers

  Indiana ha concesso il 49.2% dal campo all’attacco di Arizona. Jackson-Davis è una stella, ma dopo la sconfitta con Rutgers il ko anche contro Arizona è un brutte segnale. Sabato sfida delicata contro Kansas.

  21-Illinois Fightnin Illini

  Pessima prova difensiva degli Illini che hanno fatto tirare i Nittany Lions col 50% e il 59-74 contro Penn State è un altro test fallito da un programma molto altalenante, capace di grandi colpi a sorpresa come di rovinose cadute. Al momento sono maggiori queste ultime.

  22-Maryland Terrapins

  Approposito di rovinose cadute, Maryland è la squadra che perde più posizioni questa settimana. Dopo la sconfitta in Wisconsin è arrivata anche quella in Tennesse, un doppio ko contro avversarie dirette e top programmi che abbassa le aspettative dei Terrapins.

  23-Xavier Musketeers

  La vittoria a Cincinnati 80-77 alza il morale di Souley Boum (21 punti) e di tutti i Musketeers. Non è stata una trasferta vera e propria visto che i due campus distano poche miglia, ma la rivalità con i Bearcats è molto accesa e questa vittoria alimenta ancora il morale e le aspettative sul programma di Xavier.

  24-Miami Hurricanes

  New entry di giustezza per Miami che oltre al record di 10-1 mette in mostra anche prove convincenti e un Jordan Miller da 25 punti nel 80-73 contro NC State. Anche quest’anno la squadra di coach Larranaga può dare soddisfazioni.

  25-Iowa State Cyclones

  La sconfitta in settimana contro i rivali di Iowa è stata pesante, ma i Cyclones hanno avuto il merito di rialzarsi subito domenica nel 77-40 interno con cui hanno schiacciato McNeese State (21 punti e 8 rimbalzi di Aljaz Kunc).

  In the Hole: Texas Tech Red Raiders, West Virginia Mountaineers

  Syracuse-Monmouth NJ



  Gonzaga-Northern Illinois

  Gli Houston Cougars hanno subito la prima sconfitta al primo vero test, ma rimane favorita sui Texas Longhorns che a loro volta hanno le loro gatte da pelare. In tutto questo attenzione ai convincenti Connecticut Huskies che calano @11 di quota per il titolo nazionale, e anche i Kentucky Wildcats che avevamo consigliato nel pre-season, si prendono @15 e rimangono una valida alternativa.

test cricket bettingSky Sports pundit issues score prediction as Wigan prepare for Sheffield United test

  It was a decent result for Kolo Toure away at Millwall last weekend in his first Championship match in charge of Wigan.

  Indeed, The Den is a tough place to go, so for the Latics to have come away with a point will have pleased their new boss.

  Despite that, though, Wigan do remain 22nd in the Championship, with a huge test against Sheffield United coming up on Monday night.

  The Blades currently sit second in the division and have won four of their last five matches, including a 1-0 win over Huddersfield Town last weekend as the season got back underway.

  Billy Sharp got the decisive goal against the Terriers last weekend, but with the Blades possessing an abundance of attacking options, Wigan will have to be at the top of their game to get anything this time around.

  Sky Sports EFL expert and columnist David Prutton doesn’t believe the Latics will get anything from this one, though, backing the Blades to take all three points.

  In his latest Sky Sports column, Prutton wrote: “A very respectable draw for Kolo Toure in his first game in charge of Wigan last weekend.”


“They took the lead at Millwall but couldn’t quite hold on for all three points.

  “Sheffield United found their way past Huddersfield to keep pace with Burnley.

  “But at this stage, they’ll be more interested in what’s happening below them, rather than above.

  “I think they win again here. Prediction [Wigan] 1-2 [Sheffield Utd].

  The Verdict
You can certainly see the logic in this prediction.

  There has been a huge gulf in quality between these two sides so far this campaign and although Wigan could put in a performance, if Sheffield United are at their best, they should win this one.

  Kolo Toure must take any positives he can from this game – any result is a bonus.

  Paul Heckingbottomtest cricket bettingSky Sports pundit issues score prediction as Wigan prepare for Sheffield United test, meanwhile, will see anything other than three points as a huge missed opportunity.
