Roseau in Dominica hosts it first Test match starting on Wednesday with West Indies needing a win, an 11/2 chance with Paddy Power, to level the series 1-1 with India.
However, India have had the measure of the home side throughout the Test series, only drawing the 2nd due to the loss of 130 overs through rain and while India are bet365′s 11/10 favs to win again, the forecasts for the small Caribbean island are not good.
Thunderstorms are predicted for both Thursday and Friday, hinting that Stan James’ 7/5 about the draw could be worth investing in. If there’s a days play on Wednesday, that price could increase but it’s certainly a risky strategy to take.
Rahul Dravid has described the tracks as being some of the most difficult he’s faced and in the wake of neither team reaching 300 in any innings, he has a point. Dravid is 7/2 with Totesport to top score while his team-mate, Ishant Sharma, is 5/2 with Coral to take the most wickets for India following his 10-for in the 2nd Test.
