Thundery showers are predicted for the next five days in Guyana.
Plus a weakened WI team without Lara & Sarwan.

So for v.small fries you can bet against WI win at 1.08

Draw seems the most likely result at 2.1

I really need to learn about this game, seems everytime I see a recommendation on cricket its to take the draw??? so the draw at 2.1 is more likely than the bet against wi at 1.08?

WI not winning includes both draw (@2.1) and South Africa winning (@2.2).

I'm persuaded to go just for the draw because bad weather is forcast for 5 days (i.e. A cricket test match is played over 5 days, 6-7 hours per day. If a result (SA win, WI win, Tie) is not reached the the match is declared a draw).

A tie is a rarity, I think only 2 have occured in the history of test cricket. If match is a tie you get money back.

i just put money on draw @ 1.22, I know it is crap odd but it is just that I have been losing so much that decided to take things slow to rebuild the bank.

Groundstaff are busy clearing up the deluge that fell overnight
13.45 GMT: Players are not at the ground at present, prospects of any play before tea looks unlikely.

For those who went for the draw....ship is sailing in :aparty:

And if you fear a SA collapse you can cover with a WI win at 20.0 ;)
