Collect with captain Cook at 11/4

Live on Skysports 1: Thurs 04.00: England are 9/4 (bet365) for the fourth Test in Nagpur, where Alistair Cook and Monty Panesar can shine.

After another stunning performance, this time in Kolkata, England lead the series against India 2-1 and with just one Test match remaining, the least they can return home with now is a draw.

That’s an outcome that looked a million miles away after the first Test in Ahmedabad but Alistair Cook and co won’t be content with a stalemate, they’ll hope to go for the jugular in Nagpur and become the first England team to prevail in India since 1984/85.

Needing only to draw the final contest, the tourists are 8/15 (BetVictor) to win the series and bet365 make them 9/4 to do so in emphatic fashion by winning the fourth Test to wrap up a 3-1 success.

That price isn’t without appeal given the last two matches but there’s a feeling that the hosts, Coral’s 6/4 favourites, can’t possibly be as bad as they were in the last Test.

Subsequently, it’s hard to recommend a straight match bet at the prices even though England look slightly too big at 9/4 and instead it could be worth siding with Alistair Cook and Monty Panesar.

The latter has been in blistering form since returning to the side in Mumbai and he’s great value at 15/8 with BetVictor to continue that in Nagpur by taking the most wickets for England on a pitch that will provide him with some beneficial extra bounce.

England’s ever-reliable skipper meanwhile is an enticing 11/4 courtesy of Sportingbet to top score for his side with the bat after his 190 in the third Test and for the hosts the gritty Ravichandran Ashwin could attract each-way cash at 25/1 (Ladbrokes) to be the top Indian runs scorer after his impressive performance in Kolkata.

Recommended Bets:
Alistair Cook to be top England batsman – 11/4 (Sportingbet)
Monty Panesar to be top England bowler – 15/8 (BetVictor)
