Interesting rumour about Afridi moving up the order.....where did it come from, may I ask ?

If you shop around you can get 11/1 on Afridi for Renegades Top Bat.

good to see the moving Afridi up the order, he did it pretty well for Hampshire last year and though he didn't score massively today he did his job perfectly. no complaints with 26 from 14 balls then out.



6's bet comes in with 10 overs to spare :win:

Thanks to William Hill for their fine generosity

Brisbane Heat v Sydney Thunder

Gayle top Sydney batsman @ 7/4


Considering Sydney's dire batting performances so far (Gayle excluded) and Gayle's outstanding performances with the willow over the past 12 months this is surely an even money shot at best? Apparently not in the opinion of the odds compilers, and though some bookmakers are as low as 5/4 on the big West Indian Ladbrokes are offering a mighty generous 7/4.
Throw into the mix Brisbane's mediocre bowling (only batsman Chris Lynn has an ER below 7.7) and Henry has a great opportunity to overtake Travis Birt as the tournament's top runscorer, at least for a short time.

double header tomorrow:

Hobart Hurricanes v Melbourne Renegades

I think Melbourne are good value here. Hobart have a good team and have performed well but I think their bowling has been a bit weak. This is a high scoring ground and I think they may struggle to restrict a Melbourne team with a lot of big hitting potential.

Melbourne Renegades @ 2.2 (Stan James)

The ground has also seen plenty of 6's and with plenty of big hitting players inclduing the majorly inform Birt and Shah for Hobart I expect to see plenty here.

Over 10.5 6's @ 1.83 (William Hill)

Melbourne Stars v Adelaide Strikers

Over 7.5 sixes @ 10/11 (SkyBet)
James Franklin top Adelaide batsman @ 8/1 (SkyBet)


With players like Wright, Hussey and Quiney in their line up The Stars have a decent chance of covering the sixes line on their own, but with Adelaide's hitters now including James Franklin alongside Harris and Blizzard I think we can expect 8 or more sixes even at a ground that has only seen 20 sixes in the 3 games played here so far, especially with both sides needing the win.
I also think that with Adelaide's batsmen misfiring new boy Franklin could be worth backing to top score for them. He's been playing T20 in New Zealand and averaged just under 33 in his last 5 innings. If he can reproduce that kind of hitting he'll be in with a decent shout here at more than fair odds to outperform the rest of the so far mediocre Strikers batting.

didn't see this tip till now andy, MCG really isn't much of a 6 hitting ground though.

the low line was tempting but didn't feel there'd be many in this.

I did under 3.5 for Adelaide in the first innings but didn't have anything on overall.

doing my nuts with a poor back of Adelaide first innings instead! :( No Excuse, I could have traded out for small profit after the 3rd wicket
