Online Cricket Betting: Collingwood said that England must make “tricky” decision with Pietersen

Paul Collingwood said that a “tricky” decision must be made by the England selectors, as they have to see if Kevin Pietersen will be fit or not for the third Ashes Test at Old Trafford, and online cricket betting fans would really like to see what awaits the player.
Online cricket betting fans and price per head sportsbooks were very concerned when they found out that Pietersen is doubtful for Manchester due to a calf strain that he suffered in England’s 347-run win at Lord’s which opened up a lead of 2-0 in the series with very good cricket odds.
If Pietersen is not fit to play, then Eoin Morgan, James Taylor, and Nick Compton – very well known for their great cricket odds – are amongst the selectors’ options.
Collingwood, former England star who is very famous with online cricket betting fans and price per head sportsbooks alike, said that when it comes to picking a man to come into a settled and successful squad, character is just as important as talent.
“It’s going to be a tricky one for the selectors,” he told Sky Sports News. “The one thing that they’ve got to make sure is they keep a good feel factor in the dressing room of keeping the right characters, keeping momentum going in terms of quality on the pitch. But in the dressing room it’s very important that you pick the right characters as well.
“England seem to have the balance right at the moment but they’ll have to bring someone new into the dressing room and it’ll be an important pick.”
Collingwood, pay per head services, and many online cricket betting fans do not believe that the way that the team was assembled – six batsmen and Matt Prior, three quicks plus Graeme Swann – will suffer any changes in Manchester.
“To be fair, whenever it does turn it seems a reverse swing as well in the three series that they’ve got they do a fantastic job, so I can’t see them erring too much away from the strategy they’ve got at the moment,” he said.
“You’ve got the likes of Joe Root (to bowl spin) and if Kevin Pietersen is fit then he can bowl a few offies. But the way they’re playing at the moment they are putting Australia under immense pressure in whatever conditions they’re playing in.

“Old Trafford will probably be a quicker wicket, and I think they’ve still got the armoury to cause a lot of damage.”
