Cricket Betting – Vaughan Misses Out On England Recall

Cricket Betting

Yorkshire‘s promising leg-spinner Adil Rashid is the one surprise name in the England Test squad to tour the West Indies in February and March but there’s no place for county team-mate and former England captain Michael Vaughan. National selector Geoff Miller insists that Vaughan is still in England‘s plans ahead of the forthcoming Ashes summer and that leaving the opening batsman at home will give him a chance to get a full pre-season with Yorkshire and to work on his fitness in a short tour of Abu Dhabi. But Vaughan‘s international future now has a serious question mark hanging over it with age no longer on his side .

England are strong favourites to beat the Windies in the Caribbean (4-5 with William Hill currently being the biggest odds on offer) with confidence high despite a narrow defeat in their two-match series against India on the sub-continent.. Ryan Sidebottom, who missed the tour of India with a side strain, is welcomed back to the party and is a 6-1 chance (again with William Hill) to take most wickets in the four-test series with Rashid 10-1 with the same firm. Captain Kevin Pietersen is the 9-4 favourite (William Hill) to score most runs ahead of Andrew Strauss (a general 7-2).

The Tote have again reiterated their commitment to the Super7, which was only launched in September, despite persistent rumours that the bet is about to be scrapped. The Super7, which operates from Sunday to Friday, requires punters to find seven winners with dividends paid for ‘near misses’  of five and six correct selections. There is a guaranteed pool of £100,000 but reports suggest that the initial take-up has been disappointing and the Super7 appears very much the poor relation of the Scoop6 at present. With bets like the Tote Swinger also receiving more publicity – is the Super7‘s sell-by date already up?
