Here are four cricket betting tips that Adam Drury thinks you should consider for the fourth Test between India and England in Ahmedabad, starting on Thursday.


Rohit Sharma to score over 38.5 runs

Sharma has taken the game away from England in the first innings of both of the last two matches, scoring 161 and 66.

He has passed this mark in seven of his last 10 home Tests.

Ben Foakes to be England’s top first-innings run-scorer

You can see the scenario in which this bet falls into place, so it is worth taking on at a big price.

England have been blown away in the first innings of both of Foakes’ Tests in this series, leaving him to pick up the pieces with the tail. This bet landed as he top-scored with 42 in the second Test, while his 12 was the visitors’ third-highest score in the third Test last week.

Axar Patel to be India’s top first-innings wicket-taker

England’s decision to field a top four of right-handers in the third Test was designed to negate the threat of Ravi Ashwin, but only played into the hands of Patel.

The 27-year-old’s accuracy was too much for the visitors, as he took six first-innings wickets on his way to 11 in the match.

As the second-favourite to Ashwin in this market, he is worth a bet.

Joe Root to be England’s top first-innings wicket-taker

If conditions are similar to last week’s third Test then this looks like excellent value.

England look sure to field Root as their second spinner again. With the ball likely to be turning from the off, the skipper – who took 5-8 last week – is much better than an outside shot to be in the wickets once more.
