Cricket Betting

Will England v India cricket betting be going out with another big bang from the tourists? After getting hammered in the first of the four Test series, England have fought back tremendous. With the recent win in Kolkata, the tourists took a 2-1 lead in the series and will know that just avoiding defeat will give them a historic win on Indian soil. Should England avoid defeat, it will be their first win out in India for 27 years and the fact that it will have happened from being a test down will be a truly remarkable feat. The momentum is with England ahead of the Friday’s fourth test, while India have decided to ring the changes. The batting of England captain Alastair Cook has been immense, and since the added spin of Monty Panesar, who was left out of the first test, has come in, England have looked potent with the ball in hand. England’s restriction of the Indian batting attack has been supreme in the last two tests, giving them a huge advantage.

England will know that India have to really try and push, really have to take chances to avoid defeat. India haven’t lost a test series on home soil since 2004 Australian visited in 2004. That is the scale of the task that England are performing at the moment. The tourists are buoyant and just need a draw out of this final test match. Can they get it? India look to be a side who are crumbling as England have beaten them at their own game. Still, the Nagpur Test does have the bookies favouring the home side, as India are trading as 6/4 favourites at online bookmaker Boylesports to take the victory, while England are just back at 7/4 and the draw at 9/4. So things are expected to be tight. England’s value at the moment in the Series Winner betting market stands at 8/15 with Boylesports and the draw at 6/4. So a big final test ahead for England, who have to get the balance right, not to just sit back and play out for the draw, but push on and put the Indians to the sword.

At the moment, the learning curve that England are on, following their demolition in the first test, has the number two ranked side in the world living up to their expectations. India are ranked down in fifth at the moment and they are a side under pressure. It may just be worth looking a Draw No Bet on England at a price of Evens with online bookmaker Boylesports.
