Here are four cricket betting tips that Adam Drury thinks you should consider when West Indies face England in the second Test, starting on Wednesday afternoon.


West Indies draw no bet

England may have been the more likely winners of the first Test, but they still fell way short of taking 20 wickets in the match.

Their samey bowling attack will be further weakened by the absence of Mark Wood and their struggles with the ball mean it is worth siding with the hosts.

Nkrumah Bonner to score over 26.5 first innings runs

Bonner scored 123 and 38* in the first Test, rarely looking troubled by England.

He looks in good form and is an obvious bet at this low runs line.

Joe Root to be England’s top first-innings run-scorer

Root was one of three England players to score a century in the first Test, but he is by far the most likely to back it up in the second.

That was the skipper’s eighth century since the beginning of 2021 and he has scored 50+ in five of his last 10 first innings.

Zak Crawley to score over 2.5 first innings fours

This was a very narrow loser in the first Test, with Crawley hitting two fours in the first innings and 16 in the second.

At a price not far short of evens, he should be backed to continue his prolific boundary hitting here.
