The Simulation Cricket Betting Agency sees Webhostingtalk.com as favourites for the tri-series final, after match winning performances by cabalstudios, Equentity - Jamie, Slidey and arkin, despite Banglacricket.com winning against them in the first match of the series.
Banglacricket.com were lucky to get over the line in both of their preliminary matches, defeating Webhostingtalk.com by 1 wicket in a low scoring affair, and winning by 8 wickets against Saintsational.com yesterday when opener Shahriyar scored a 4 off the last ball of match.
Webhostingtalk.com had few troubles defeating Saintsational.com in the second match, winning by 7 wickets with over 8 overs to spare.
Key Players for the series final:
- Shahriyar (Banglacricket.com) - Banglacricket.com's leading run scorer in the series, if he can put on a decent partnership with captain and fellow opener AsifTheManRahman, Webhostingtalk.com will have a few worries.
- Hatebreed (Banglacricket.com) - Only a single ODI under his belt, but he did score an important 60*, and will be a vital middle order batsman not only in this match, but in next years World Cup.
- Hasib (Banglacricket.com) - By far Banglacricket.com's most successful bowler in this ODI series, he has 6 wickets at just under 17 apiece, including a 5-fer against Webhostingtalk.com in the series opener. A good performance could see Webhostingtalk.com restricted to a low total.
- Equentity - Jamie (Webhostingtalk.com) - An inspirational captain, he is capable of producing very high scores in quick fashion.
- cabalstudios (Webhostingtalk.com) - The leading run scorer for the entire series, with one century and one half-century, cabalstudios can turn a match around. Also a competent bowler with 6 ODI wickets, he can restrict the opposition batsmen.
