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


Kraigg Brathwaite to score over 23.5 first innings runs

Brathwaite has passed this mark in three of his last four Tests, including scores of 97 and 72.

His first innings scores on this ground read: 39, 74, 121, 49, 14, 3, 126.

He has also beaten this mark in four of his last six first innings against England.

Zak Crawley to hit over 2.5 first innings fours

Crawley has passed this mark in his last three Test innings, including when he has only managed scores of 18 and 36.

He likes to start his innings aggressively and scores lots of his runs through boundaries.

Dan Lawrence to score over 21.5 first innings runs

Lawrence was unlucky not to feature at all in the Ashes, considering England’s dismal batting performances.

He scored a 50 in last week’s warm-up match and can make the No. 4 spot his own this month.

Kemar Roach to be West Indies’ top first-innings wicket-taker

Roach has claimed a share of the profit in this market in three of his last six Tests.

He has also been his side’s top first-innings wicket-taker in four of his last six Tests against England, including in all three matches when Joe Root’s side toured the Caribbean in 2019.
