West Indies vs Pakistan – Sarwan return can boost Windies

| 01.05.2011

The West Indies will look to salvage some pride in the fourth one day international, as they take on a Pakistan side who have already established an unassailable 3-0 series lead.

Match odds

The West Indies have brought Ramnaresh Sarwan back into their squad for this match, and the 30-year-old is sure to bolster their batting line-up.

Sarwan averages 43.20 in ODIs and he was dropped following a disappointing World Cup, alongside fellow stalwarts Chris Gayle and Shivnarine Chanderpaul.

The West Indies failed to score more than 221 in the first three matches, but with Sarwan back, the Islanders could be worth backing at a generous 9/4.

Pakistan, in stark contrast to the home side, will be brimming with confidence as they look to extend their winning streak.

Their bowlers, led by spinner Saeed Ajmal, have tormented the West Indies for much of the series and should they fire again, a Pakistan win looks good at 1/3.

The visitors’ batsmen have excelled as well, with Misbah Ul-Haq and Ahmed Shehzad both playing fine innings.

Batsmen odds

Misbah Ul-Haq has contributed three successive unbeaten scores to successful run chases, including two knocks worth more than 50. He is 7/2 to score another half century.

Shehzad hit a measured 102 in Pakistan’s second win of the series, and the opener is 9/4 to pass 50 against the West Indies.

Sarwan is a player of genuine quality, and the Guyanese man is 9/4 to mark his return to the West Indies team with a score of 50 or more.

His team-mate Darren Bravo, meanwhile, is also available at 9/4 to make 50.

A £30 stake on Ramnaresh Sarwan to score 50 would return £67.50. New customers can sign up here for a free £30 bet.
