Achievements in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2011

Ireland – The Irish team played six matches, won two, lost four, attained four points at a net run rate of -0.696 and found themselves out of the top eight. They however, surprised England while beating them by three wickets after chasing a mammoth target of 327 and triumphed against the Netherlands with a margin of six wickets.

West Indies – The Windies appeared in six games, clinched three, lost even and held six points at a net run rate of +1.066. They were outplayed by Pakistan in the Quarter-finals with a hefty margin of 10 wickets and could not proceed further.

Ireland recently won the Dubai Triangular Series involving Scotland, Afghanistan and they will anticipate a promising start to the ICC Cricket World Cup 2015. West Indies surrendered the five match One Day International series badly against the hosts South Africa 1-4 but they have the potentials to come back in the big event.

The Irish batting line-up will revolve around Niall O’Brien, William Porterfield, Andy Balbirnie, Ed Joyce, Paul Stirling and Gary Wilson, while Kevin O’Brien, Alex Cusack and John Mooney are fine all-rounders. Craig Young, George Dockrell, Mooney, Peter Chase, Andy McBrine and Max Sorensen will look after their bowling.

Chris Gayle, Marlon Samuels, Dwayne Bravo, Lendl Simmons, Dwayne Smith and Denesh Ramdin are big names in the limited overs filed and they can change the complexion of the game with their powerful batting on their day.

  1. Can giant slayer of last world pull off another stunner against struggling West Indies? It's very unlikely but we have to be prepared, a stunner is just around the corner. Minnows have nothing to lose and they will play fearlessly whereas mighty West Indies have to recover their lost confidence.

    The million dollar question is how do we make profit from such match? WI odds are 1.22 which isn't attractive to risk money just for 22p profit.

    Wait for WI odds to go above 1.50 and then back them. IF Ireland is batting first then a good partnership at the top might push odds above 1.50. At interval assess the situation and then decide to make profit or wait till the end.

    Irish are good with bat so if they are chasing then don't take risk. If they are batting first then wait for WI odds to go up, back WI and make profit provided it's not more than 275+ run chase.

  2. Munna Bhai , can I lay WI if Ireland bat first and back wI if odd increase ???

    0 -1
    • Yes that's also a good strategy. You are not going to get massive profit from this match so figure out how to get maximum out if it. Wait for few Irish wickets to fall, WI will odd will go down then lay them hoping that Ireland will recover later.

  3. Munna Bhai,

    Barcelona jeet jaayegi na aaj??

    • yeh bhi koi puchane wali baat hai? I don't trade match results though. I only trade O/U goal markets which is safe. O2.5 looking good. In last 6 matches involving Barca we had over 2.5 goals except the one against Atl Madrid.

      • Nahi Bhai, with some teams they perform not to the level...happened with Valencia so should i put at the start or wait till the odds to move from 1.37 to 1.7-1.8

        • Go for goals you have better odds and less risk. Put some money on 0-0 it will cover you for sometime then do whatever you want to do, you will be insured by 0-0.

          • Maan gaya Bhai aapko....salaam haazir karta hoon apna....i was a bit apprehensive about over 2.5 since Athletic have good record at there homeground against Barca....aur yahan tp 25 min ke andar hi 2 goal pel diye...

            0 -1
            • They are having form of their lives. With Barca you count goals, victory is always assured. Those guys are goal scoring machines.

  4. not gonna bet a single penny backing Ireland anymore .they are just miserable trash.They have cost me $300 today against Scotland.So no more warm up matches.BTW to play world cup do i really have to put my money in Australian wallet in Betfair ?Cause they were very strict about it back then so i didnt verify my Australian wallet.and want to open an new account with them so which account bonus will be best the sportsbook one or the exchange one?

    • I warned you guys to avoid warmup matches.

      You can't open more than one account on any online bookmaker site. You have to stick with existing account.

      • Bhai i was thinking to open wid my cousins passport and using his bank account anyways Australian wallet verification kinda tough though.but World cup is in Australia sooo hv no choice.BTW betfair isn't offering any $50 free bets any more.

  5. can v rely on wi atleast against ireland ... seeing their last warm up match....?

    • Who to rely on more? Minnows Ireland or failed biggies WI? Rely on WI they should not have much difficulty in torturing Irish, making beer out of them and having a great party.

      • Lol what a match it turned out to be. Bumper jackpot for traders even though fav WI lost. Such trading jackpots are so rare. WI lacked spinners, Ireland outplayed WI in all departments.

  6. Munna Bhai I live in the UK and interested in trying online bookies. I haven't used any online bookie before so I want to learn first. Which ones do you recommend and which one is easier to use? Can you get me some exclusive bonuses?

    • Before learning bookies you should learn science and art of trading.

      The easiest online bookie to use is Paddy Power (signup and get £50 Bonus). I like it's interface and it's very easy to navigate and use. It's faster than most of other bookie sites as well. Signup there and get £50.

      No need to sniff around all bookies. Once you are comfortable with this one then I can recommend more.

  7. wi are of no use... ireland winning it so easily...
