"Punter’s" laying not backing this time…

Today’s shock statement by Ricky Ponting regarding the state of his team’s bowling attack, should worry those who have taken the ridiculously short price on the Aussies lifting the trophy:

“If we are not convinced on what our best XI is, then we may have to give six or seven bowlers seven or eight overs each,” – Ricky Ponting

It seems like the debacle of the Hadlee/Chappell trophy has caused more than a short term bruise to the egos of the one-time Brits.

At the moment, Australia can be got from anything between 2-1 with Ladbrokes and 9-4 with Stan James on the outright result of the tournament. This, to me is money burnt. India at 8-1 and Sri Lanka wavering at 7’s are the big bets of the competition, especially for those seeking each-way value.

With Australian confidence at a 20 year low, now is the time to lay the Ozzies and back the Asian nations.
