Online Cricket Betting: Alastair Cook vows to put an end to England’s losses

Alastair Cook wants to lead the English side to their maiden one-day international title after advancing into the ICC Champions Trophy’s final, and online cricket betting fans would really like to see what will happen.
England’s online cricket betting fans were delighted to see that their side was able to defeat the Proteas by seven wickets and very good cricket odds in a one-sided semi-final at the Oval, in which South Africa made it 175 after falling to 80-8.
Excellent spells made by James Tredwell and James Anderson bowled the host nation into a dominant position with great cricket odds, and in just the 38th over, Jonathan Trott’s unbeaten 82 saw England home.
Online cricket betting fans saw that England was runner-up three times in the World Cup, as well as at the 2004 Champions Trophy, but Cook believes that his side will be able to clinch their first 50-over trophy in Sunday’s final against either Sri Lanka or India.
“We can win it, without a doubt,” Cook said. “You need people to stand up and deliver to win ODIs. and it has happened for us in the last two games we have played.
“As kids you always grow up wanting to play in finals and they can bring out the best in people.
“This England side in particular has delivered when the chips have been down and the pressure has been at its highest so I have no doubt that the guys in our dressing room will turn up on Sunday and I am fully confident that they can do it. Hopefully it’s now our turn.
“It would be a great achievement to win it,” the opener added. “It’s hard to compare it with the Ashes, but at the start of the summer we set out some clear goals and one of them was to win the Champions Trophy.
“We got to the final in 2004 and we couldn’t quite get over the line. Hopefully this time we can go one better.”
Online cricket betting fans now see that England have selection problems after Tredwell’s man-of-the-match performance instead of Graeme Swann, who was out with a calf strain, and Steven Finn also bowled well in while Tim Bresnan was absent due to the birth of his son.
The England captain added: “I’m sure there will be some meetings and very tough decisions made over the next few days (about team selection).
Do you have players? We can handle them for you.
“We won’t risk it if Swann is touch and go and Finn gives us another selection headache, which is nice to have.”
