Pakistan Cricket World Cup Squad - Pakistan Betting Odds

Pakistan has the class to be a major contender for the 2011 Cricket World Cup and will featuring reasonably up in the Cricket Betting, this is despite the fact that Pakistan have been through years of turmoil and come into the World Cup in a terrible state. The team have been through everything in the last few years from bans to spot fixing but they do have enough talent in their squad to cause a few upsets.

Pakistan were of course one of the joint hosts of this Cricket World Cup but they were stripped of that honour following security issues in the country, they will want to prove something with that in mind and could prove dangerous as a result. The recent spot fixing scandal has seen the team lose their star young bowler in Mohammad Amir as well as Mohammad Asif who has been key to their development in recent years.

Pakistan will be led by skipper Shahid Afridi and he is the catalyst for the team as if he is in form the rest will play around him. If Shoaib Akhtar is fit and running in then he can knock a few of the opposition over early on putting the opposition on the back foot early on, he is past his best though and will need to get to the tournament fit and free of injury. Pakistan are capable of beating any team on their day but they lack the consistency needed to go all the way in a tournament like the World Cup, that will count against them in the betting but one thing for sure is that it will always be interesting with the Pakistani team around.

The Pakistan 2007 squad will feature most of the current contracted players.
