2/1 Swann can’t save tourists

Live on Skysports 1: Fri 04.00: England are 5/1 (bwin) to win the second Test but India should prevail, despite Graeme Swann’s efforts.

England are out to 16/1 with Ladbrokes to win the Test series in India, after they lost the opening clash by nine wickets in Ahmedabad and those odds look set to drift further because the tourists look set to suffer another defeat in the second Test in Mumbai.

Alistair Cook’s men battled back well in the second innings to at least force the hosts to bat again but such a heavy defeat nevertheless raises several question marks about team selection and it’s fair to assume that changes could be made.

Bwin still consider England to be 5/1 outsiders to level matters while India are decent value at even money via Coral and the draw, which is probably the best the visitors can hope for provided they perform well with the bat, is a 7/4 chance at Stan James.

Given the difficulty England had taking wickets last week, it’s hard to see them avoiding defeat in this one, even if Monty Panesar is included with the spin-friendly pitch in mind, and with Cook and co. struggling to adapt, India also look certain to enjoy the highest opening partnership; an outcome Stan James price at 8/11.

After his performance in the opening contest and the struggles of the seamers, it’s easy to see why Graeme Swann is fancied to be England’s best bowler and Skybet’s 2/1 for him to bag the most wickets is hard to ignore.

Meanwhile, with the bat, Alistair Cook’s cool head, allied with the absence of Ian Bell makes the England skipper the most attractive bet at 3/1 (BetVictor) to top score for his team.

Recommended Bets:
Graeme Swann to be England’s top bowler – 2/1 (Skybet)
India to win the second Test – evens (Coral)
