iBet: India to bounce back against England
India v England, T20, Pune, starts 1.30pm
Back India at 1.63 with Betfair
Back Eoin Morgan to be top England Batsman at 7/2
England did superbly to bounce back and win the Test series. It’s clear that the Tests were their main aim and with all their IPL experience I would expect India to dominate in this format of the game. India beat England by 90 runs in the World Cup in September, in a match in which the visitors were bowled out for under 100 and only Kieswetter, Buttler and Dernback made double figures. They have lost three out of their last four and are shorn of their captain, Stuart Broad, due to injury. England have a very youthful look about them Eoin Morgan and Tim Bresnan will provide the experience. Morgan in particular is dangerous in this form of the game and with Kevin Pietersen not available, may be worth a bet at 7/2 to be top English run scorer. The last nine matches at the Nehru Stadium have seen first innings scores of 166, 155, 146, 177, 120, 125, 173, 136, 162. India are available at 4/7 with the high street bookies but are a slightly better price of 1.64 with Betfair and are a confident bet.
Stan James have an interesting market on what the highest scoring over will be. You can get 6/5 by taking a position on over or under 18.5 runs.betting
