9/4 full Monty not enough

Live on Skysports 1: Weds 03.30: Monty Panesar can shine again for England but India (5/4, Stan James) should prevail in the third Test.

England’s cricketers put in an outstanding performance in Mumbai to level the series against India at one-apiece but with two matches to go they remain 7/2 outsiders at Betfred to ultimately come out on top.

Alistair Cook’s charges are also underdogs, this time at 11/4 with Coral to clinch victory in the third Test in Kolkata while the hosts are 5/4 via Stan James to take a 2-1 series lead and it’s 9/4 (bet365) to finish all square at Eden Gardens.

Controversy surrounds the pitch ahead of the crucial contest, home captain MS Dhoni asking for a track to be prepared that will offer turn but minimal bounce. Ultimately that means a pitch similar to that in Ahmedabad, where India comprehensively outplayed the visitors and that could prove crucial as the extra bounce in Mumbai flummoxed the home batsmen, a situation the England spinners exploited.

Indeed, Monty Panesar was the tourists’ second Test hero, taking eleven wickets in all and he’s 9/4 courtesy of William Hill to again be England’s most successful bowler, albeit on a pitch that might turn a touch less.

Ladbrokes price fellow spinner Graeme Swann at 2/1 in the same market and with conditions likely to be tough again for the fast bowlers, James Anderson is 11/2 (bet365) to bag the wickets.

With the bat, skipper Cook is 3/1 at Boylesports to be his team’s top scorer and Paddy Power chalk Kevin Pietersen up at 10/3 after his impressive century in Mumbai.

From an Indian perspective meanwhile, in-form Cheteshwar Pujara looks great value at 7/2 (Betfred) to be the hosts’ highest scoring batsman.

Recommended Bets:
India to win the third Test – 5/4 (Stan James)
Cheteshwar Pujara to be top Indian batsman – 7/2 (Betfred)
Monty Panesar to be top England bowler – 9/4 (William Hill)
