Rules: 1 point per run, 20 points per wicket, 10 points per catch, 25 points per stumping
Let me start by stating that Chris Gayle had a poor year so far - and so has the West Indies team in test matches. He is a great batsman when in form and this bet may go down the drain pretty quickly if he catches some rhythm, but since he has not done that this year so far, I hope that he will not do that here. He has been shaky all year and Sri Lanka has a tremendous team that will punish any batting mistakes - and Gayle can make many. There was a preparation match before the first test and Gayle was out for five runs, so I fully expect him not to be much better here, especially as there will be added pressure during the actual test match.
All in all, let's hope that Gayle's struggles will continue in the first test match and that he will not suddenly find rhythm again. I know that I have had some tough luck with my Brook Lopez bet, which was pretty similar to this one - and he found tremendous rhythm. So let's hope that will not happen again.
