Day 2 Betting Guide
After a mixed up 1st day it would appear to be honours even, the only notable move in the betting is West Indies being cut from 11/2 to 4/1.
West Indies though must be kicking themselves, yet again their fielding has let them down badly. If they held just half the catches they dropped they would surely have bowled England out already and again Fidel Edwards was the unlucky bowler – if he dosen’t get his name up on the honours board today his team mates should hang their heads.
Dropping Bopara on 76 and 100 West Indies have really let England off, if he goes onto post a massive total today it will be serves West Indies right. In the final session the Windies fielders dropped six catches in total with four of the lives given to Broad during a cruical partnership with Bopara which eventually yielded 69 runs when England where on the brink of a collapse.
Finishing the day on 289/7 must feel like a victory to England, Ravi Bopara made another ton justifying the selectors faith in him, whether he goes onto become a sucessful number 3 is another story but a bright international future somewhere in England’s batting line up looks to be there for the taking for him.
England will be looking to push on today and with Bopara and the tail will be looking to get over 350 setting at the least a competitive total, if there is any justice though Fidel Edwards will get his fifth wicket and his name on the famous Lords honours board.
