England v South Africa second Test betting tips & predictions
Four cricket tips you should consider when England face South Africa in the second Test of the series.
Joe Root to score over 33.5 first-innings runs
Root failed in both innings of a Test for the first time this summer last week at Lord’s.
He is surely too good to fall short for a third time, so is worth backing to score over 33.5.
Dean Elgar to score over 27.5 first-innings runs
Elgar made an impressive 47 before a very unlucky dismissal in his only knock at Lord’s.
One of the most dogged and consistent openers in world cricket, he looks a good shout to reach just 28.
Stuart Broad to be England’s top first-innings wicket-taker
Whispers about Stuart Broad’s international future are surfacing again after a quiet first Test at Lord’s.
The 36-year-old thrives when people are writing him off and it would be typical of him to bounce back at a ground where he took 22 wickets in three Tests two years ago.
Anrich Nortje to be South Africa’s top first-innings wicket-taker
Nortje ripped through England in the second innings of the first Test, taking three wickets.
If he translates that form, this is a big price.
