Four cricket betting tips that Adam Drury thinks you should consider for the second Test between England and South Africa.


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.
