South Africa v Sri Lanka - Philander Man of the Match

Cricket - Test Match - 02 Jan 08:00

Philander has won this market 3/18 at home, suggesting there is some juice in the odds of 9/1

But the main reason for this bet is the pitch. There is a lot in the build up about how green it is, I have seen it, it is very very green.

It is tailor made for Philander. His record on this ground is amazing, 31 wickets in 6 tests at 20. If you remove the last 2 test matches where he was not as his best its actually 30 wickets in 4 games!

He has shown that when conditions are in his favour he is lethal, 5 for in the last game, another in the DN test in Aus where it swung, He has 7x5+ in just 18 games at home.

He is also handy with the bat, with 5x50s batting at 8 conditions may have eased and in a predicted low scorer 30 runs or so may be vital.

Given the disparity between the sides, I think we can rule out the Sri lankans and the spinner Mehraj given the nature of the pitch.

SL have showed however they can bowl well and with the nature of the pitch I am confident that it will be a low scorer.

Rabada looked out of nick in the first test and has the disadvantage of not taking the new ball,

I am not convinced on Abbott either, his two best performances account for 1/2 of his test wickets.

I think a £10 stake on Philander will give us a good run for our money.
