Adam Drury is backing runs for opening batsmen on each side in his cricket tips for Friday's Cricket World Cup at Bristol.
Imam-ul-Haq to score over 36.5 runs
Imam got his World Cup going with a steady 44 against England at Trent Bridge on Monday.
The opener has passed this mark in four of his last seven innings, hitting 35 in one of the exceptions and having to retire hurt in another.
Dimuth Karunaratne to score over 28.5 runs
Karunaratne is not a spectacular player, but is the one Sri Lankan batsman who looks capable of batting for a significant length of time.
His watchful approach should see him pass this mark for the third time in three innings so far this tournament.
Shadab Khan to take over 1.5 wickets
Shadab bowled well to take two wickets against England, with several of the hosts’ batsmen unable to pick his variations.
Sri Lanka, who played Mohammad Nabi’s off-spin dreadfully on Tuesday, are likely to be caused similar problems.
