Here are four cricket betting tips that Guy Giles thinks you should consider for the second Test between England and India at Lord's on Thursday.


India to win

We were denied a result in the first Test due to rain, but India had put themselves in a good position to go one-up in this five-match series before the final day was washed out.  

Both of these sides have world-class bowling attacks, so it is India’s batting that will decide the course of this series.

Despite scoring 303 in the second innings in Nottingham, England have not shown the ability to regularly compile big scores, while India have established quality running through their lineup.

This looks a good price for them to secure a second win at Lord’s in their last three attempts.

KL Rahul to score over 23.5 runs in the first innings

Rahul looked in great touch in the first Test, top scoring for India in the first innings with 84 before making 26 in the second.

Mayank Agarwal is reported to be fit again for Lord’s, but Rahul is playing too well to be dropped and is worth backing to pass this mark for a third consecutive innings.

Ollie Robinson to be England’s top bowler in the first innings

Robinson returned to the England fold in the first Test and repaid that faith with his maiden five-wicket haul in the first innings.

His consistency will make him a real threat on the slope at Lord’s.

Mohammed Shami to be India’s top bowler in the first innings

Shami has previously had little luck in England but he impressed in the first Test with four wickets across the two innings, including three in the first.

He also took three in the first innings during India’s last Test at the home of cricket.
