THERE IS no value in backing the West Indies to beat Scotland or Australia to beat Bangladesh, but for the record, the best price available on either is 1-20 with Stanley. Those who fancy the outsiders should take Ladbrokes' 10-1 on Scotland and Bangladesh to win their games. Ladbrokes are offering a tempting bet on which of today's underdogs will fair best. Each side will be awarded 1 point for a run, 25 for a wicket. Ladbrokes offer 5-6 against both Bangladesh and Scotland. For some value bets, back Mark Waugh to top score for the Aussies (9-4, Coral and Stanley), and Gavin Hamilton to top score for Scotland (10-3, Stanley).
